    OHSU,,and Michelle are awesone

  • Sep 14, 2019

    My entire experience at OHSU was professional and it was ultimately ideal. I would recommend them to anyone.

  • Sep 03, 2019

    Yes, I went and saw Michelle. I really like her but she didn't tell me there was going to be some numbing to my arm before I went in. I wish she had told me that that was that she was going to do that because of the electrical, you know, stem they used or whatever and I wish you told me that there could have been some numbing there while I was there or beforehand, you know, that would have helped. But other than that I was satisfied.

    I have been going to miss Cappadona now for all going on a Year. My procedures just about complete. I've been very happy with my the worksheet done it for me. It's been very almost painless, which I know isn't the case for most people but I find she's very good at what she does. She's a professional and I would recommend her I would give her a 10 if I could on on these tests, but for some reason when I print 10 you guys say it's a 1 so there's some kind of confusion with my when I when I print in 10, so I just put 9, I'd rather give her cannons, but just for the sake of making a test or if I had put in my CS I would highly recommend her. Thank you.

    As always, I have nothing but amazing things to say about Michelle and the OHSU staff. I've been receiving electrolysis for almost a year in preparation for my vaginoplasty surgery consult on Jan. 29, and the procedure itself has been pretty painless and pretty in and out everytime. Michelle is a great human being and I feel very lucky to be in such good hands.
