Patient Comments (3)
Beaverton, OR |
Horrible communication and follow through. Rudest, nastiness office staff. Have no confidence in this Dr if this is how he allows his staff to treat patients.
Portland |
Dr. Adler and his staff are overworked and rude. They seem to find follow up care to be tedious and their communication is short, incomplete and unhelpful. After surgery it feels like you are at the mercy of someone with a serious God complex and there is nowhere to turn for help. You're stuck with their insensitive and callous attitude.
in Mulino, Or |
Dr. Adler was highly recommended to me and I have recommended Dr. Adler to many people. His staff is great, I had minimal wait time, I found him very personable, and most of all he is an excellent surgeon. People must be responsible for what they do after the surgery. Not everybody complies with the post-op recommended care. Maybe some patients need to be reviewed.
