    I love Dr Piantino! He is easy to talk to, very knowledgeable, and helps us make decisions in our son's care.

    We have been very happy with our care and all staff have been friendly and helpful. Dr. Piantino is great!

    The doctor was so friendly, caring and kind plus he didn't rush at all!

    We’d never met Dr. Piantino before. . Appt has been scheduled for months and I didn’t really have high expectations. Thought we’d have a 30 min appt where he’d reduce his keppra. But he spent 90 min with us, and addressed all of our questions, helped me get comfortable that more MRIs aren’t going to show us if brain is healing—it’s the neuro osych testing that will tell us and that we are doing exactly what we should be doing therapy wise to support healing. He was really great.

    It is very good what they gave the child and I give him a 10 for his attention and his carefulness to give everything possible to the child and improve their health thanks.

    We really like Dr. Piantino. He takes the time to listen to what we're talking about. My daughter has kind of an odd set of symptoms and we try and work around those problems and Dr. Piantino's great. We just we really like him. We don't love coming to Portland, but he's such a good fit it's totally worth it. So, we really appreciate that.

    I would appreciate it if our provider would listen to our concerns rather than address issues he thinks we may be worried about. I would like to discuss with our provider the complimentary care we are doing with our daughter. We did briefly discuss her diet.We were very disappointed that a Child Life specialist could not be with our daughters during this meeting as we had planned.

    We will follow him always where ever he goes - we have used him at Kaiser and then followed to OHSU by far the best epilepsy doctor we have found
