    Rachael Postman is one of the most compassionate people I've ever met. She has special quality to make anybody, at least me, feel comfortable to let her...tell her anything. I'm very thankful and happy and glad to work with Rachael Postman. She is the best doctor that OHSU has, by far.

  • Apr 13, 2019

    She doesn't listen to what the patient has to say. Goes more on goes I guess what she thinks things are. I guess that's it. Bye now.

    Rachael was very present with my daughter. She genuinely cares, listens to her, is engaged, expressive, easy to relate to, makes my daughter feel comfortable and cared for, smiles and laughs, explains things in a way that is easy to make sense of, is patient and thorough. I just can't say enough good things about her.

  • Feb 06, 2019

    Yeah, I came over from Kaiser. I was doing the tapering off of the methadone of a pain clinic medicine I was receiving, and I wasn't getting anywhere tapering off Kaiser, and I went to to Rachael and she saved my life. And bottom line. Thank you very much, Rachael Postman.

    Dr. Postman is a very thorough provider, she checks all symptoms and is always helpful.

  • Jan 14, 2019

    I came in yesterday from my appointment. I messed up on the time and instead of Dr. Flex I got Dr. Rachel. She's great. You know really she took the time to listen. She told me what's happening with my body and the problem having stuff. I'll admit I was a little leery, so used to Dr. Clarks, but talking to Rachel, she was great. Let me know that girl. She definitely deserves a 10. She's nice. She's kind. She's courteous and I like her, I never have a problem worried about you know, how good is my doctor.

  • Jan 13, 2019

    I think she's done a wonderful job for me. She's very considerate and very accurate. I'm very happy with her.

  • Jan 12, 2019

    She is great. Really cares knows what she's doing. Still young. Might need to be a little bit more...each case, but I'm sure that's really hard for her, but she really cares, and I...except for maybe still needing to learn a little bit more...a very little bit more, and take everything serious. I think that that does it.

  • Jan 11, 2019

    Doctor is always great, nursing staff and support staff are very good

  • Jan 07, 2019

    Rachel Postman is one of the best providers I have ever had. She is very good at listening and asking the right questions. She doesn't waste time trying to convince you to do things you can't do. She spends as much time as it takes to get the job done.

  • Jan 06, 2019

    She was extremely polite. She was extremely helpful, she was extremely respectful and non-judgmental. She was a very, very good provider and she diagnosed me directly because the antibiotics are working, and I believe that you guys' facility is just - it's renowned and you guys are very non-judgmental. I feel safe there and just for everyone that I'm come into contact with there. So yeah. There you go.

  • Dec 23, 2018

    She was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. I felt very informed regarding the issues I was concerned about. She provided me with alot of information to research and consider.

  • Dec 07, 2018

    I felt Rachel was extremely thorough. I had seen her a few weeks prior. She reinforced that I needed to meet my appointment with sports medicine, which I did today, and I plan on switching from Alison Fox to Rachel Postman as my primary care.

  • Nov 19, 2018

    Rachel takes the time to listen and understand my issues. She recommends actions but in the end, doesn't force anything. She listens to my objections, addresses them as best she can and doesn't force medications. I like this.

  • Nov 18, 2018

    Very accommodating, very down to earth, very friendly, very nice. And would see her again if my doctor is not available.

  • Nov 17, 2018

    I believe she sometimes takes on bigger things than she knows but they are something that should be sent to a specialist. And thing get kind of put behind that should be looked at by someone else and taken care of.

  • Nov 08, 2018

    Dr. Postman is always available to listen to us. She's very patient, explains things in a very clear and easy manner for everyone to understand. She always return phone calls and has always made us feel better. She's an excellent doctor.

We work well together.Rachael feels more like a smart friend who sees me and cares about me.I love Rachael!!

  • Sep 08, 2018

    She?s trustworthy and kind but due to silly constraints, her hands are tied and it?s frustrating that my pain can?t be contained ?

  • Sep 07, 2018

    She reviewed test results and discussed option. Her calm, respectful tone of voice allowed me a safe place to weigh options. I really appreciate her guidance and trust she has my best interest at heart.

    She listens to me and makes suggestions with me involved. She always remembers me with a smile and never makes me feel stupid for coming in. She is very caring.
