Dr. Engelstad enjoys working with kids in the OHSU Cleft/Craniofacial Center because it allows him to develop special, ongoing relationships with patients and their families from year to year as the children grow. He enjoys helping to restore people to normal appearance and function after facial injuries or other facial surgeries.

He tries to tailor communication with his patients so that they can spend less time in the hospital or driving to and from appointments and more time doing the things they enjoy.

In his spare time, Dr. Engelstad is trying to see, camp in, climb on, ski down, hike over, paddle through, and photograph as much of Oregon as he can.

    The description of Dr. Engelstad's surgery was very theoretical and easy to understand. It is my great honor to be able to receive his surgery.

  • Jul 12, 2019

    The treatment was very professional. All the staff as well as Dr. Englestad were great.

  • Jun 29, 2019

    He was thorough, kind, competent, funny, and real. I’ve been to multiple oral surgeons and he’s the first one I’ve been truly impressed with. Called multiple friends and told them how great this experience was!

    He was extremely polished and professional. Yes. He was warm and authentic very invested and aware of the case. It's felt as though he had kept tabs on it and really was acquainted in the way that made us feel very connected both to OHSU to our caregiver and to the healing process. We cannot say enough great things that rave reviews about Dr. Engelstad as well as his terrific residence. Dr. Lance Thompson and Dr. Brian Rogers the to Residence to care of my son prior to Dr. Engelstad in the ER when he came out on a Life Flight as Trauma from a motor vehicle accident, and we have nothing but the most highest praise and respect for that department and those three physicians. Thank you.

    Dr. Engelstad explained to me that the brain would assist in the rewiring the nerves where the damage occurred, and that it was, looked very good, and he explained how it went, where the damage occurred, spread out into different areas in my face, you know, and that it would take a period of time for the brain to rewire some of the stuff, some of the nerves. That made perfect sense. He told me not to worry, and I told him I wasn't going to worry because I really already understood that concept of, you know, the nerves, you know *

    Dr. Engelstad was very helpful and answered all of my questions in detail. I appreciated his taking the time to do a consultation with me.

  • Dec 12, 2018

    The doctors were on time, attentive, answered all of our questions. They were thorough and we felt great trust with the care we were given.

  • Nov 05, 2018

    Dr. Engelstad was very very good at what he does, he is very personable. We had a great experience with him and I would recommend him to any other family that is looking for his expertise. The only thing kind of not negative but a little bit that was a little bit frustrating It's hard to get an appointment with him follow up because he's so busy and some of the wait times are kind of long. That is the only I guess more negative feedback I have everything else is wonderful and he's the wonderful doctor.

  • Oct 11, 2018

    He was very nice and thorough. Also very knowledgable and professional.

  • Sep 29, 2018

    Dr. Mark was very through with his explanation as to why I was having such pain and explained well.

  • Aug 21, 2018

    [Name][Name], and I went and seen doctor yesterday, which is on a [Name] and I think, for everything that was going on, he seems okay, I just kind of felt like I didn't get as much attention I guess, as I did yet. Maybe that's not it at all, but the same way I got from the idea right them.  the young ladies were really nice, and Mark seems nice also. I don't know about anything else I can tell you.

  • Aug 16, 2018

    He was very informative answered all our questions and concerns. My daughter feels he has her best in mind. Thank you

  • Aug 11, 2018

    He was considerate, thorough, helpful and took my problems seriously.

  • Jul 15, 2018

    I felt Dr. Englestad was very accommodating to my needs, very knowledgeable, receptive to who I was as an individual. It seemed like he went out of his way to do his job. And also went out of his way to make sure I was able to get the care that I needed. I had to drive 2 hours away and normally it was a procedure that I would imagine a doctor would have to reschedule for the next day but he was able to sneak me in and get it done that day instead of me having to wait around or drive home and drive back in so I very much appreciated that. The fact that he was willing to go out of his way. Also he had a student with him or someone who is learning. His name was John or Jonathan I believe. I thought he was very well and knowledgeable, did a great job of comforting me when I was in pain and going out of his way to make sure I had everything I needed before I left the office.

  • Jul 13, 2018

    This was one of the best health care experiences (and I've had plenty) that I have had. All of the staff were very courteous, friendly, and efficient. Dr. Englestad gave me a lot of confidence and explained all of the procedures and the medical etiology of my diagnosis in clear terms.

  • Jul 10, 2018

    Dr. Englestead has great bedside manner, is very knowledgeable, and can explain the future as well to patients at a level that they can understand. He took an hour out of my appointment time, however, for teaching the residents. Which I understand, however as a patient I have a timely appointment and need to get to work as well, so I didn't appreciate that as much. However, he apologized greatly and I had a great experience with Dr. Englestead.

  • Jul 10, 2018

    Hi. The provider was, he was knowledge and he explained to me in detail and he wasn't rushing me. And he was able to answer all my questions and also other questions that came up. So I'm very happy about that. And it didn't feel like I was rushed compared to other providers. So the experience was excellent.

    M[Name] [Name] and I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Engleson and the whole team. He made [Name] feel very comfortable, very easy to talk to, and answered all of our questions with ease.
