Being in the care of Dr. Fazio has been a life-changing experience for me. Due to my family history of heart disease, and my complex blood disorder with lipids and LP(a), I am at a very high risk for blockages or heart attack. Dr. Fazio provided me with peace of mind due to his commitment to non-invasive yet in-depth diagnostics. Dr. Fazio is kind, compassionate, professional, and an expert in his field. His advocacy for common sense testing gives patients the opportunity to know the full picture of their cardiovascular status. Before I found Dr. Fazio, I was an anxious wreck in constant fear that I was going to have a cardiac episode. Now I know my actual risk and am able to enjoy my life in peace. I could not recommend Dr. Fazio, and OHSU more highly.

I always enjoy my time with Dr Fazio. He is a great listener, and always has some insightful points to make about my health care concerns. He is one of the few Drs I see that offers me specific published studies to read concerning my condition. This is something I really appreciate, and it shows as well that he stays current with whats going on with the current research.
