    I was very pleased with my first contact with Dr. Davis. Her explanation of my situation and the treatment proposed was excellent.

  • May 16, 2018

    I have absolute confidence in Dr. Davis. She is amazing. If I ever came across someone with my illness, I would share my story with them and sing praises about Dr Davis and OHSU.

    Not sure I know about all the medications I will be given but given a notebook about the treatment. Don't think I know all that they have planned, know also some is based on my reaction to the treatment.

    Dr. Davis and the entire staff are always very professional, friendly and show concern for my health and well-being. I would go nowhere else for treatment of my cancer.

    Dr. Davis and all the staff are always great. I wouldn't go anywhere else for medical care

    asked the doctor to call with some biopsy results. instead, I got the biopsy results released to me through my chart with a message from the doctor about the plan for care.

    Dr. Davis is great, always professional and personable.

    I have had a specific concern about past encounters with this care provider. In this most recent visit I expressed this to the doctor and found her to listen well and to be very receptive. I feel confident that going forward this concern will be resolved, or at least the door is open now to talking about it again as needed.

    The likelihood that I will recommend this provider is next to nil, because the disease I have is one in a million. What do you think the chances are that I will run in to someone who would need Dr. Davis' expertise? Also, N/A needs to be an option on several of these questions.
