    Dr. Lindner is the most attentive and caring physician I have ever interacted with. He takes time to explain symptoms and procedures, and most importantly, follows up to see how I am doing.

  • May 09, 2019

    friendly, thorough

  • Apr 16, 2019

    Appointments with Dr Lindner are always positive. He allows me time to ask all my questions - not only when I arrive, but also as they crop up during the visit. He listens really well, asking for my feedback as we progress through the appt. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, positive, stays on top of everything, contacts other of my providers, as needed, friendly, encouraging, checks to be sure I have any necessary tests done in a timely fashion, and explains his thoughts and pans for the future. If I have medication issues we discuss all the pros & cons & proceed from there. I always feel like he has heard me.

  • Apr 06, 2019

    Hi, the doctor was prompt. He was efficient. He knew my history. He asked the right questions, gave a good test. I feel very comfortable. I had a couple questions. He answered them directly, and completely and then he volunteered a couple of items I could do make my health a little bit better.

    It was productive and got some answers we have been needing to find out for awhile

  • Apr 02, 2019

    Dr. Linder is very professional, but also sociable. He listens and then responds thoughtfully and in detail. Most of all, he is respectful - never condescending.

  • Apr 02, 2019

    Dr. Lindner is an exemplary physician. He is very willing to spend time with his patient to make sure of that patient's understanding of his or her condition. He listens to concerns and provides very clear information. I hope he never leaves OHSU.

    I am always grateful that I was referred to Dr. Linder. He is aware of all of your previous situations and concerned about your well being. He is a brilliant physician who is also kind and caring.

  • Jan 16, 2019

    Yes, I've been seeing Dr. Lindner since 2010 and he's always been very upfront with me, explains to the best of my ability to understand it if I have questions, he always is right ready to answer and makes sure I understand what he's told me. I.... I've been going to, as I said, since 2010 and I think he's a wonderful doctor and I would definitely give him a 10 rating and you know, tell anyone that if you have cardiac problems that he's the man to see. Thank you.

  • Jan 10, 2019

    I appreciate his knowledge about Fabry disease and cardiology.

  • Dec 30, 2018

    Dr Lindner is a wonderful doctor. He communicates clearly, has wonderful empathy and I know I am receiving not only the best care but that he cares!

  • Dec 27, 2018

    I believe it was a TEE I had-- a scope down my throat to check the Walkman device place to my heart a year ago

  • Dec 05, 2018

    Yeah, it was a great experience that I had and he's very knowledgeable of everything. He helped me understand a bunch of stuff and I felt I had a really good experience with him and it took me awhile to get into see him and he's very smart and I appreciate having him as a doctor. Thank you.

  • Oct 31, 2018

    He was wonderful-- listened carefully to me, asked good questions, provided information I could easily understand. He even telephoned me afterwards to alert me to something in my blood work. How many doctors would do that???? Not many, I think.

  • Oct 17, 2018

    It was all I expected, as usual. Questions answered, explanations given, he always shows care for his patients. I would not want to change anything to what he does.

  • Oct 17, 2018

    What a pleasant, engaging person Dr. Lindner is. The Cardiology Department at OHSU is indeed very fortunate to have Dr. Lindner as a member. Every time I see him, I leave encouraged, having had all of my questions answered in words that I understand. I have only good things to say about this man.

  • Sep 11, 2018

    Very professional.

  • Sep 11, 2018

    Dr. Linder is an exceptional person...he listens to his patients. I thought the old time docs were long gone,. It not this doctor! Outstanding, a shame you cannot clone this guy. Every doctor at OHSU, could certainly take a page from this doc's playbook.

  • Sep 10, 2018

    Dr. Lindner is an excellent cardiologist and diagnostician. I have a rare heart condition and he has systematically worked with me to understand best course of treatment. I am extremely appreciative!

  • Sep 10, 2018

    Excellent provider, willing to answer all my questions in detail which increases my confidence in him. I trust him to give me ?straight? answers and wise counsel. I sincerely hope he will stay at OHSU!!! His doctor-to-patient skills are excellent and appropriate .

  • Sep 10, 2018

    Clear with directions, provide good feedback about medications and test. Very receptive with concern about my total health

  • Aug 09, 2018

    Yes Dr. Linder is incredible one of the best cardiologist I'm sure in the united states and certainly the best I've ever had I would easily recommend him to anyone and he's genuinely interested in his patients, knowledgeable at every level, and an incredible individual to work with so I'm very fortunate to have him as a cardiologist hope he never leaves not in my lifetime. That's about all I can say. Thank you.

  • Aug 07, 2018

  • Aug 02, 2018

    I find Dr. Lindner to be extremely confident both medically and in terms of his personal interaction. And I would highly recommend him to anyone, I think he is among the best cardiologist I have ever seen.

  • Jul 31, 2018

    My experience with Dr. Lindner, so far, has been positive. I feel like he listens to my concerns and does not brush off any questions, or makes me feel like they're stupid questions. Also, he's one of the few doctors that OHSU has, that is a cardiologist, that understands how ... just how to know me, such as parts, (INAUDIBLE) syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome really effects really effects the body, in terms effects the heart in those connections. So, I really appreciate all he's done to help.

  • Jul 31, 2018

    He obviously reviews my chart before he comes into the room. He listens, is patient and explains in a way that I can understand without talking down to me. He is personable, encouraging and seems to really care about me as a human being.

  • Jul 31, 2018

    He listens and replies to all questions thoroughly and he sincrely cares about his patients.

  • Jul 31, 2018

    Respectful, listen to my concern and did every procedure necessary to find problems with my heart valve

  • Jul 30, 2018

    Dr. Lindner is very warm and personable. He didn't seem rushed at all and took time to ask questions and really listen to my answers. He explained exactly what is going on with my heart and was very reassuring. I believe he is an excellent cardiologist.

  • Jul 11, 2018

    It was a real good doctor It seemed like he was concerned and real knowledgeable, thank you.

  • Jul 09, 2018

    Knowledgeable of both cardiology and my medical history. Clearly explains test results and future outlook as well as stressing to contact him if there is an issue in between visits. Personable. On time and spends enough time with me but not too much.

  • Apr 13, 2018

    Dr. Lindner is the best Cardiologist
