    This man is very smart and he is very nice, and now he can be connected with ... that computer thingy down here in Eugene, Springfield, and he watches all the time to see what's going on with me, and he told me everything that happened since the last time I saw him.

    Didn't see the doctor until almost 1 hour after my scheduled appointment. No... no one said that he was running late.

    We really like Dr. Naugler he's so caring and compassionate friendly nice understanding. We just can't say enough good things about him. He has just been wonderful as as all the staff has up at OHSU.

  • Dec 08, 2018

    Dr. Naugler was gracious, seems very well informed, excellent to deal with in terms of my medical problem and otherwise and has a great reputation as I hear. The only thing that I was disappointed about was we didn't get to see the picture of my liver MRI. Other than that, things went wonderfully and he made a great referral for me for the follow up work, which I was able to book right away. So, I'm very glad to be in his care.
