    Myriam's personal knowledge of my issues with cancer and her demeanor is just about a refreshing activity at the OHSU. I think the school and the hospital for such an outstanding professional.

  • Nov 20, 2019

    I have never met any Doctor in any arena of healthcare as good as Dr. Loyo. I wish all my doctors could embody her standards of practice: Genuine care, discernment and mastery.

  • Nov 02, 2019

    Excellent caring dr

  • Nov 02, 2019

    Dr. Loyo is extremely competent. She's also very kind and fun and she's always professional. She explains everything. She has a lot of empathy. I felt very comfortable with her and I'm thankful. She was there for me.

  • Nov 01, 2019

    Dr. Loyo was very professional and explain everything clearly. I could tell she was extremely knowledgable about my condition and was able to trust her. The only thing that can be improved is there is a long wait to make an appointment with her.

  • Oct 31, 2019

    everything was explained and recommendations were offered in a very helpful way

  • Oct 28, 2019

    I was very, very pleased with the services I received at the clinic and from the doctor. The only reason and I thought OHSU the whole set up down there on the river. This is my first time I considered changing all of my medical to OHSU. I was so impressed by the staff by the facilities by professionalism everything. The only reason I rated her a 9 is it's so hard to get an appointment. So on the question of would I recommend her to somebody else, in a heartbeat unless they want things a little faster because she is really booked up that is not a criticism of her. It's just a feedback hesitation on recommending. So excellent a terrific team, everyone so wonderful*

  • Oct 26, 2019

    Dr Loyo is very skilled and I trust her completely.

  • Oct 23, 2019

    Dr. Loyo has taken skillful, cheerful care of me for over a year and a half. She has operated on me twice and will again. I’m so glad that when my face fell she was one of the team who caught me.

  • Oct 23, 2019

    She was knowledgeable, listened and answered all of my questions.

  • Oct 22, 2019

    It’s very trustable. And confident.

  • Oct 22, 2019

    The provider was very nice and explained everything very well.

  • Oct 21, 2019

    Extremely skilled and helpful.

  • Oct 19, 2019

    So far I have seen Dr. Loyo three times. She is also a professor and often brings in some residents to our appointments. At first I felt a bit embarrassed sharing my medical issues with extra people. I’m used to it now and accept that I am helping science and medicine advance. Being that Dr.Loyo is demonstrating for future doctors in the field I feel more confident having a positive outcome during my procedure and that I will be cared for thoroughly. I have seen an ENT and a plastic surgeon before her and they both were not willing to operate on me saying their skills were lacking in this kind of expertise. Seeing DrLoyo made me so happy because she assured me with confidence that she can help me achieve my goals of breathing better and having aesthetically pleasing results. It’s good to know I am in the hands of a facial plastic surgery specialist with many years of experience with difficult cases like mine.

  • Oct 18, 2019

    Doctor 'Loyo is amazing, honest and down to earth, and aside from being a great surgeon and doctor, she's also an amazing communicator, often a lacking attribute in the physician community.

  • Oct 17, 2019

    She was awesome. She was very well dedicated to my needs, my concerns, and questions overall, she was an amazing doctor.

  • Oct 16, 2019

    Exceptional doctor - took time to explain problems and possible solutions.

  • Oct 16, 2019

    Excellent experience, smooth experience at registration. I would have to say that office staff on the second floor should be cautious talking to patients in waiting room about their illnesses or how sick all the office staff is, I was kinda worried. This was not Dr. LoYo-Lu staff. And remind staff to introduce themselves.

  • Oct 15, 2019

    She was thorough, knowledgeable & I felt like she genuinely cared about my daughter. I appreciated how much she made her health & care a priority

  • Oct 15, 2019

    I feel very fortunate to be Dr. Loyo’s patient. She is professional, knowledgeable and explains everything well. She is also caring and has a wonderful attitude toward helping her patients.

  • Oct 15, 2019


  • Oct 15, 2019

    she does not look at me when she talks to me. She does not take my concerns as important. She is unwilling to address the current on going problems

  • Oct 15, 2019

    She and her staff are awesome..they are professional quick to answer questions. When your in there office 100% is your time...

  • Oct 15, 2019

  • Oct 14, 2019

    I was seen promptly, was given a few moments to complete paperwork, then Dr. Loyo arrived having already reviewed my notes and CT from my appointment and surgery with Dr. Ng. She was gentle, thorough and answered all questions from me and my husband before addressing the 2 ways to move forward.

  • Sep 19, 2019

    Dr. Loyo always takes time to answer my questions. She is genuine and respects me.

  • Sep 17, 2019

    Very happy with it.

  • Sep 13, 2019

    I was extremely happy with the results of the work she did on me. I was skeptical at first, but I am thrilled with the results. Thank you very much, Dr. Loyo.

  • Sep 09, 2019

    Understood my concerns immediately

  • Sep 07, 2019

    Doctor was wonderful. It was about the best experience that I have had in a long time. And her student was nice too and so was her nurses. And Dr. Han was nice when she called me too. So it's all in all it was a wonderful experience and what I would definitely recommend this office to anybody else.
