    excellent!

    Ive been to a LOT of doctors and (other than Dr Paul Vary at OHSU pain clinic) Dr Korthius is EXCELLENT. I am a recent amputee with a lot of issues and he rates at the TOP of my list for great doctors.

    As mentioned earlier, my only hesitation to recommend is that Dr K is so busy now, it's sometimes hard to get an appointment. But he's the best doctor I've had in a long time for my HIV care. I have complete confidence in him; he even called me at 7pm to tell me about a Rx he was adding (B12) that we had not had time to cover in our appointment (because I talk so much, probably....) That's above and beyond the call of duty, considering it was nine hours since our appointment!

    Dr. Todd took extra time with me and provided excellent care. I am very thankful for his support and understanding.

    I do not think i could get better care period!

    I had a few questions to ask and the doctor seemed a bit rushed, which is usually not the case. Is it that silly "On Time" monitor in the waiting room that he is trying to keep current with? If so, it not a smart idea. My doctor was on time, but as I said, he actually said we were running out of time and he was running around in the last few minutes to retrieve a few things. That board does nothing but make people in the waiting room anxious. Get rid of it.

    never want to see this doctor again

  • Jun 20, 2016

    seemed to only be concerned about a complete misunderstanding about medicine I received that ohsu Doctor repeated the sound bite "you didn't follow our agreement" I was stunned and totally dismayed that I was treated as someone less than favorable because he disagreed with a step I felt I needed to take in medication to help me from having a total melt down. I was ACCUSED of not following our agreement. Now being treated as some common criminal that needs to be reined in.
