    This provider is very professional but pleasant and friendly. He listens to questions, answers and advises. He has a busy schedule, I am sure, but does not hurry the patient. He makes sure that the patient understands.

  • Apr 11, 2019

    Both him and his assistant were very thorough and I greatly appreciate that.

  • Apr 09, 2019

    Dr Prakash was very thorough with this wellness visit. He gave me a means by which I can get my hearing checked for example. I appreciate his gentle prod about my drinking two glasses of wine a night although I'm sure he knows it won't change my habits.

  • Apr 05, 2019

    The last 2 or 3 times I've been in there I explained to him what I want, what I need. I know my body. I'm 65 years old, and he doesn't seem to do anything that I need. He's all into do more bloodwork and doing this and this but I'm telling him I need this right now. I have ... I have ... I hurt all over and I have quite a few years. I've got arthritis. He doesn't seem to want to ... I can't even get Ibuprofen from him. I just don't care for him, bedside manner, I don't care for him at all. I liked my other doctor, so I'm quitting him. Thank you. What do I get?

    It has been a pleasurable experience so far and I feel like the Doctors I have seen have been attentive and most importantly provide remedy and relief.

  • Feb 11, 2019

    Dr. Prakash is very businesslike. Not at all personal just goes down. The list wouldn't say that he's an excellent listener. Sometimes difficult understand but mostly just not personable.

    Fine

  • Jan 28, 2019

    Doctor and staff answered all my questions posed to them regarding my wellness exam in a professional manner.

  • Jan 24, 2019

    Dr.Prakash was very nice and professional. He seems very knowledgeable and experienced. However, I don't feel like I would make another appointment as there was not much of a connection from a doctor to a patient. From a patinet's perspective, his bedside manner is a bit disconnected, but he is very professional.

  • Jan 20, 2019

    Provider was dismissive and didn't listen to what I was saying. I'm looking for a PCP that can be a collaborative partner. This guy obviously can't.

    I love the hospital up on the hill but the one here in Hillsboro they got to do something about it I was in there about a week ago and I had to spend about two hours in the ER just waiting to see a doctor and then they made triage area in back off from the ER area so yes I would like to see something done that hospital needs help I would like to hear something back from buddy that with OHSU about this issue

  • Jan 02, 2019

    The experience was good. But I have a lot of pain that dose not seam to bea problem with the DR.

    He's very willing and patient and to any concerns that I may have and I appreciated that.

  • Dec 28, 2018

    [Profanity] poor! The Dr. told me he did not want to provide service for me because of the medication I?m on. I?m a cancer survivor who has had multiple surgeries. I can?t help what previous Dr.?s have given me. I am not seeking medications I?m seeking help from a medical professional in which this Dr. clearly is not!

  • Dec 28, 2018

    The Doctor is very kind and through. He makes sure that I have the tests and vaccinations that I should have.

  • Dec 11, 2018

    He is very thorough and takes time with his patients.

  • Dec 10, 2018

    Yes, I find the doctor to definitely know his trade. Sometimes language is a little bit of a barrier, but I... I feel in good hands with his recommendations. So I would say he's well qualified doctor.

  • Dec 04, 2018

    He was very well recommended. He is... tried to help us with every problem that we had. He's a very good physician.

  • Dec 02, 2018

    okay

  • Nov 28, 2018

    Iy was a simple followup appointment that covered a problem I had recently.

  • Nov 28, 2018

    I was not pleased as I went in to have my hormones tested per my psychiatrist request and I wasn't taken seriously and when I said I needed a A1C test done. They told me that it was not a regular work that they do so they wouldn't be doing it yet when I saw him in August he had performed that test and while I was in the room with him, he did not have any knowledge of himself performing that test back in August. Which was shocking to me that I was asking for that test and didn't find out from him that he had run it but by the guide pulling my bloodwork. I found out by him and then once... once I found out that my results were ran or that that test was ran in August and wanted to talk to the doctor *
