Portland, oregon |
The Doctor actually doesn't see patients all appointments where with a nurse the only time I met with him was during my injection
Happy Valley, OR |
Dr. Stapleton is a wonderful doctor & being under his care has changed my life. Before undergoing any procedure & have had a few, he takes the time to talk & ask how you are doing. His manner is calming & puts you at ease. I like his staff, including the care & attention you receive on the day of any scheduled procedure (under anesthesia). The staff is professional, efficient, and very pleasant. I also appreciate the phone follow-up (Cody is particularly nice). Thank you for my exceptional care.
in Portland, OR |
I don't know how Dr. Stapleton is because his staff never scheduled my procedure and would not return calls.
in Portland, OR |
He is a great doctor staff is really bad so good luck on trying to get your injection / procedures scheduled in a short and timely manner . The office is clean, the staff sticks because there most likely all getting fired never the same faces at any of thier locations .
in Portland, OR |
I had read negative reviews about Dr Stapleton but I did not have a negative experience, in fact as he talked with the nurses I learned personal things about him that show his character. I am not sure if I should share what I heard in respect to Dr Stapleton's own privacy, but I will say he loves his father and cares for him more than alot of other people probably do and itbwas refreshing to hear this as he discussed what he does for him. He was pleasant to me and had a good experience.
in Portland, OR |
I have had many epidurals, sometimes 3 or 4 per year to treat my chronic and inoperable neurological back pain performed by Dr. Stapleton. Before that, I had had a few elsewhere, but they never helped. Every time, the procedure has been incredibly fast and effective with Dr. Stapleton. I am able to cycle pretty aggressively now, and it's great to know that, if I do get myself into a bad place, reliable help is a phone call away.
in Hillsboro, OR |
You don't meet him until you have an injection. It's like a chop shop for injections. They get you in and out. They do nothing for your pain. I felt him hit the nerves several times, I was screaming in pain. I'm so much worse. I'm limping and can barely sit. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
Portland, OR |
This doctor is just plain dangerous...............he did about everything wrong that he could without damaging me for life. You will be lucky to meet him in the hospital procedure room prior to him doing an invasive procedure. Don't be surprised if you don't remember meeting him because you may not have.
in Portland, OR |
Dr. Stapleton's team needs some work. I never saw the Dr, so it's tough for me to criticize him, but he is the Captain of his ship... In Brief: Lack of coordination, organization, and customer service when dealing with patients. If you have issues with insurance/authorization, they go quiet and leave you hanging. Details: 1. Nov 20th ; Referred from GP to Dr. Stapleton, of PP Care. Earliest appointment: Dec 8th; 2. Dec 8th ; Initial office visit a waste of time, as it was assumed I
