Patient Comments

    I was impressed with the thoroughness of this doctor. She examined me carefully and she answered questions. That's all I have to say. I was pleased and we'd go back to her again in the future.

  • Jul 11, 2019

    My husband and I both have found Nichole Fett to be an excellent provider for our needs. In fact, so much so that we have continued to use her as our primary care provider even though wehave recently moved to Salem. Nicole is very proficient, interested in our needs and our thoughts and listens to our responses. We both feel she always has our best interests at heart and recommends and prescribes accordingly. We are very glad to be able to continue with her as our medical specialist.

    Each person on Dr. Fett's team was reassuring, spoke clearly, and established a sense of trust in the process. I was a novice at such intense medical care, but my concerns were addressed and many questions answered b-4 I could ask them. Dr. Fett also indicated the importance of coordination with Dr. Ghetie; she told me that they would work to see that I had to drive into Portland only one time to see both doctors. The whole experience was daunting, but I feel that finally I am in competent and caring hands and there is hope for a solution to my health problems.

    My appointment with Dr. Fett was satisfactory. I was also able to participate in a "training conference" with dermatology students. Dr. Fett felt it would be beneficial to them because of the rare auto immune disease I have. There was interest in my story, questions were asked and close observation of the skin involved was examined.
