Dr. Bederka and his staff are easy to work with and made me feel during comfortable during the visit. I came away feeling like I made the right decision using their services.

The provider did not read my history before seeing me. It took a great deal of work to get him all my medical records he didn't read them before the gist and then argued with me about my pain and where it should or shouldn't be. I am going to see a different orthopedic surgeon at OHSU. He also piled my left so far apart to see the severe of my dislocation that I was having a hard time breathing through my tears and pain. He refused me pain medication. On my way out. I puked in the street. Twice. When I called the nurse to explain and ask for help she continued to argue with me and was incredibly rude. She was hurtful and mean. No empathy. Worst experience ever.

Bederka was great. He not only explained everything clearly to my daughter but he would address her directly and treated her like the patient not just a minor. I really appreciated his bedside manner.

This provider made me feel unseen and unheard. Was rude, and wasn't letting me explain myself. When I was able to -very minimally- explain my situation, he didn't seem to care or process anything I had to say, and kept proceeding following his (wrong) understanding of the situation.

Dr Bederka was amazing. His MA was awesome as well as the X-ray tech showing they liked their jobs. Overall feeling of the entire office.... Definite 10!!!

From the receptionist, to the nurse/PA, to the X-ray tech girl, all were so friendly, professional and personable. The X-ray tech ensured that I was comfortable during the X-rays as well as took extra time to explain how X-rays were important for my specific knee injury. Super staff. Efficient but not rushed.

They were nice and helpful on my visit

Dr Bederka said that my use of my knee brace was optional without knowing the full extent of my injury (need an mri to determine miniscus/ all/soft tissue damage). I tried walking carefully without my brace and my knee popped out painfully and dropped me to the floor. My confidence in dr. Bederka is pretty low at the moment as he dismissed my questions about my knee feeling loose when I double checked about not needing the brace. I don't believe he truly understood what I needed or how badly hurt my knee is.

We really liked the doctor. He was kind and seemed very well informed. His advice was sound.

I can imagine that an orthopedist tells someone they ruptured their ACL many many times per day. This provider started the encounter telling me that I had arthritis that was genetic and I'd need a total knee replacement many many years from now, but that's not why I was there. I was there for an injury and then he told me I ruptured my ACL which was pretty devastating news and I was tearful and he just blazed throught the expected course of treatment at top speed and it was very hard to process all the information. It's a LOT. Time off work, time on crutches needing physical assistance to do bathing, time on crutches going about my life, time to walking normally, time to my different hobbies. I'm in the medical profession and couldn't take the information in as fast as it was being delivered to me. I asked if I'd be given that information in a written form to review and help me with my planning and decision making and was told they didn't have that information written out because everyone is different, so now i'm left to my own recall of that conversation and google. Not awesome.

Hard to get timely appointments and follow up appointments for time-critical care. Feels evident that the doctors are on tight schedules.
