Dr. Prashanth Vallabhanath, MD
Dr. Prashanth Vallabhanath, is a fellowship trained Oculoplastics surgeon specializing cosmetic, corrective and reconstructive surgery of structures around the eye. He was named was named one of Portland's Top Doctors in 2014 and 2016 by Portland Monthly Magazine. Anyone who knows Prashanth Vallabhanath, MD affectionately calls him Dr. PV. He was born in India and raised in his early years in California. Then his family moved to Michigan where he went on to graduate from college and medical school at the University of Michigan. Dr. PV was initially drawn to medicine because of his interest in science and the desire for an intellectual challenge. Then, he had a profound experience while working in the development and testing of prosthetic devices that restored sight to the blind. This took place in his third year of medical school when he worked as a Howard Hughes Research Scholar at the National Institutes of Health. In one particular experiment, electrodes were implanted into a woman's visual cortex in her brain. Afterwards, she was able to see for the first time in over fifty years. It was a tremendous experience to be part of a revolutionary process and to see the emotional impact on the participants. "The building of these remarkable relationships with the blind participants really deepened the overall practice of medicine for me." After completing his studies and working in the intense environment of research and academia, Dr. PV was drawn to Portland by the balanced lives he saw people living here. Thus, coming to EHNW was the perfect fit. In 2000, when Dr. PV had a chance to choose from several jobs throughout the country, he chose EHNW because of its excellent standard of practice and the wonderful people. "I was impressed with the humility of the many accomplished doctors who were practicing medicine in its highest form yet still were very down to earth."

Patient Comments (2)
in Portland, OR |
Dr. PV was knowledgeable and explained things very well. He gave me instructions to care for my eye issue and let me know that in two weeks his surgery scheduler would call me to schedule the procedure I need done. That was almost 10 weeks ago. I have yet to hear from the scheduler. I gave it a few weeks just because I know things can come up but 10 weeks is absolutely ridiculous. Especially because I have since called and left messages with no one returning my call. Hence my 1 star.
