    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.

  • 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.

    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.
