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.

    Yeah, the doctor was fantastic. He really explained everything to us in very plain and simple terms. He was very compassionate towards patients, patient is our son just [Name] has Down syndrome. He really took all of our concerns into very serious consideration explain to us all the options and what we were going to be looking at in terms of surgery and recovery. He really had a handle on things. I asked him some tough questions. He was very honest and so yeah, I think I would recommend to anyone. Thank you.

    We have to wait 3 hours to get any information from the doctor, X-rays were not sent over previously like stated to the provider and the provider could not give an actual answer as to if we were doing surgery or not.

    Ashley who guided me to the exam room was amazing. I was extremely stressed out when I got there and her calm demeanor and friendliness put me at ease. Both doctors were pleasant.

    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

    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
