    Dr. Beer is a doctor's doctor (the highest praise I can articulate). He combines calmness, experience, information, candor, and wry humor extremely effectively. My spouse's and my anxiety about my very serious disease are much, much lower because he is leading the team. This is priceless for our quality of life!

    Hi, Dr. Beer is very knowledgeable. He answered my questions and gave me some ideas and helped me a lot with what to expect in my treatment and then on top of it all, he's a very good guy. He's really quite compassionate. I feel quite fortunate having been able to have him as a, I don't know, a confidant and perhaps, someday, maybe as a doc. Thank you.

    He answers all my questions, he is very patient. He's always on time, frequently very early, if I'm there early. I like... I really like the system, OHSU let's me know whether he's on time or not. I've gotten there an hour early, if he's not... if he's available, he takes me in when I'm available. He's never... he's... he's never rushed. I really appreciate working with him. That's it. Thank you. Oh and the rest of the staff too are really very helpful, not just the doctor, the nurses and the people in the front office are really good too.

    Our visit with Dr. Beer, as well as Dr. Amphil, Dr. Hung and the doctor that accompanied Dr. Hung (I’m sorry, I don’t remember her name) could not have been better. Their knowledge, experience, understanding and compassion were exceptional. They provided my wife and I with a great amount of valuable and easy to understand information. Justina who coordinated our visit was pleasant and efficient, as was all the office staff. Our thanks to everyone we came in contact with. We are totally pleased.

  • Mar 20, 2019

    Outstanding and exceeding expectations in every way. There are rare times in life when you're seriously, urgently ill and very scared...and at those times you really need your doctor and medical team to "hit the ball." This entire office is extraordinary. I was in the hands of a highly competent, very high functioning team, and I could feel it. Dr. Beer listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions, giving me all-important context to my situation. He put his recommendations and the discussion of options in a framework I could understand. I could not be more satisfied...or more relieved. Thank you so much.

    On the first visit, the provider asked questions about me and my interests to get to know me as a person, then discussed my overall health, before moving to the specific issue I had been referred to him for.

  • Feb 22, 2019

    I have been seeing Dr. Tomasz Beer since 2000 when I participated in a clinical trial with him. We thought so highly of Dr. Beer that we were contributors to "the Beer chair"! Dr. Beer is, of course very knowledgeable, and highly regarded by my other doctors in Portland. He is also willing to take the time to explain things to me and my wife, which we both appreciate. When my prostate cancer recurred I felt very fortunate to be able to return to Dr. Beer. With Dr. Beer we have confidence that whatever needs to be done, will be done and that gives us peace of mind. Thank you.
