    She is a very understanding doctor. I first started seeing her in 2011 and refused to see anyone else

  • Sep 06, 2019

    She is totally amazing, very empathetic, very encouraging giving me not so great news. I'm sad that I'm getting passed on to somebody else

  • Sep 06, 2019

    I just want to say that she was very respectful, good bed side manner. She talked to me not through me. She... her whole staff was amazing. Just wanted to basically say yes, I would recommend her and OHSU to family, friends and so on. Alright, thank you.

    She was an excellent provider. She was very knowledgeable. Very personable. I felt extremely satisfied with my meeting. Thank you.

  • Sep 01, 2019

    Was able to be seeing very quickly and just from a stand point of where her condition is. It was very helpful just to be able to get the get everything figured out and what not. I would recommend the OHSU to anybody. It's one of the best hospitals ever and parking I didn't have to pay for parking. They allowed you to go for free because I was a patient or because my wife is a patient and that right there is something that nobody else to do. So, yes, it is a good Hospital.

  • Aug 31, 2019

    She was very patient and very understanding and explained to what she could do and what couldn't happen. And I was, I understood what she was saying and I was satisfied.

  • Aug 31, 2019

    The doctor was very attentive to my problem and would not release me until she had the answers to all her questions and concerns.

  • Aug 29, 2019

    She's great and knowledgeable. She was running "On Time" when I checked in. When I sat down, the board was changed to, she was running 15 mins behind. My appointment was AN HOUR LATE! Not what I had planned for. I saw her for approximately 5 mins and I was out the door. Very irritating.

  • Aug 28, 2019

    I had a very good visit with the doctor. She was explained everything to me and great detail. I I felt very at ease with her and I she's very knowledgeable and I considered it one of the best doctor visits I've ever had. She is fantastic.

    Julie from the heart doctor. Julies Falardeau was very nice, very kind and very professional and she helped me know how bad my sight was and I appreciate her honesty in telling me. I would recommend her for anyone who is having problems with their vision.

    She was very professional, and met with us as long as we needed to speak with her about my condition, and it was very helpful.

  • Aug 08, 2019

    This was a follow up visit for a previously established condition. I feel very confident with this provider. I feel she explains matters so I can completely understand. She is great with answering my questions to my satisfaction. I feel like we have a good ongoing treatment plan for the months and years to come.

  • Aug 06, 2019

    The most pleasant, best doctor I have ever had.

  • Aug 05, 2019

    It was a good experience. The situation with my eyes, we still don't have any definite reason as to why it's happening. So that was okay, I guess. And second of all, I just have to wait to see if it gets worse. I'm not sure how worse it needs to get so it's just a very confusing situation. They did a lot of testing on me, which was great. Did see a neurologist with her also, which was good because of my past history of surgery to my head and brain, so it was a good experience. I would recommend her I guess to somebody else. I just wish I had some more answers and yes, I have some more questions, so that's it. Thank you.

  • Aug 01, 2019

    She is absolutely fantastic. She’s a great doctor, she’s very knowledgeable, she is very good at keeping appointments on time, and when I needed to change my appointment she was super helpful and did it for me through MyChart.

  • Jul 27, 2019

    It was a very nice experience. Very nice lady, and I think she probably knows what she's doing very much. I appreciate it. Thank you.
