  • Oct 02, 2019

    By the time I was able to get in for an appointment with Dr. Greiling, my skin condition had worsened to the point that it covered most of my body. Dr. Greiling was very concerned about the level of my discomfort, both physically and socially. She made no snap judgments about what the cause of my skin issue was, but instead listened as I shared all the historical input I could provide, thoughtfully and professionally examined all the different expressions of the problem on my skin, and answered all my questions with honest, straightforward answers. When she did not know what my skin disorder was, she said so (which was more helpful than the guessing that other dermatologists had done in the past). After taking 3 small biopsies for examination and testing, she and her assistant stitched me up, bandaged my open wounds, gave instructions on wound care, and sent me home with the promise to be in touch when the lab results are in. She also suggested skin products I could switch to during the waiting period which should be less likely to irritate my already inflamed skin.All in all, the appointment went far better than I had thought it would, and I am hopeful for the first time in months that a solution to this problem can be found.

    Dr. Greiling is a great listener and I can tell she cares about me and helping with my condition.

    I think Dr. Greiling is a very good doctor. I really like her and she spends time inmates a really lessons on what we're saying. I'm I'm trying to understand what's going on with me. So I definitely appreciate her. And all that she is doing to try to help me with this what's going on.

  • Sep 25, 2019

    Dr. Greiling was fantastic. I had a really difficult day and was a little upset about an unrelated medical matter and she was so very kind. I appreciate both her expertise and her compassion. It felt great to know I'm not just the next patient.

    Informative, pleasant, thorough! Both Dr. Greiling and her resident assistant were helpful and wonderful. My gratitude for comprehensive care!

  • Sep 24, 2019

    I waited 50 minutes for disappointment. The doctor I saw was not on the reader board which outlined whether the doctor was on time or not. I was not told she was running an hour late. when I went to ask it took 10 minutes to get a response

  • Sep 22, 2019

    Hi, my name is [Name] I saw Dr. Teri Greiling a few days ago and I had a poor experience. I felt personally that she was unprofessional. I would like the opportunity to speak to her again. And I'll be coming back to OHSU for the opportunity to express how I feel. I didn't feel listened to, and I didn't think she was knowledgeable. I hope she doesn't take this personally and if she gets the opportunity to hear this, and I hope that she knows that I'm a patient.

  • Sep 22, 2019

    She was really lovely. She was very helpful. But I do feel like as far as being aware of maybe holistic skin treatments. I honestly don't know if there have been good studies on holistic skin treatments other than just piling drugs on me. That would have been really helpful and and I'm always looking for something like that because someone was lifelong skin issues doesn't want to just keep using Cortisone and honestly newly synthesize big Pharma expensive you know prescriptions are also not really what I'm looking for. So but that says she's really helpful.

    Dr. Greiling is one of the very best dermatologist I've had the experience with and I've had quite a few because this will make my ninth basal cell carcinoma being removed which I found today that it is malignant. At any of it, she saved me from an awful lot of problems down on on Bond Street when she found that I had a staph infection in a previous wound that was given to me at the - at the VA and any event, the drug used, cephalexin, she provided got it cleared up for me in 5 days and I had practically no side effects and she's very wise and and I would ask for her especially in this case because I think she's one of the greatest and that's about all I can say about her, but I'd recommend anyone*
