Dr Neville was kind and very caring for my wellbeing. He's a great listener. He answers all my questions and concerns in a way that I can understand. He makes me feel good about myself. He follows up on my visit in my Health with a complete overview of my condition and updates my meds. I look forward to my next appointment with Dr. Neville.

Thanks to Dr Neville! Excellent visit!

Dr. Neville is an amazing neurologist. To my surprise, Dr. Neville knew about all my history and importance of my Chart. I didn't have to start over.he already knew about my history of migraines. I have seen more improvement than I had expected. I really respect Dr. Neville because he respects me. His plan of care for me has been wonderful. He listens to me and answers all my questions. He also asks me at every appointment if I have had any side affects from my medication.It is really hard to find a doctor that doesn't treat you as a "medical gaslight" and actually listen to my concerns and opinions.Dr. Neville is a top 10 Neurologist

  Jun 21, 2023
Waited for 30min in the room for visit with Dr. Dr. Was in the room for less than five minutes. Previous appt with provider also had to wait 30-40minutes in room for Dr.

  Jun 21, 2023
Answer your phone. I waited on hold for ever and no I don't want to leave a message or hear about Covid again. I was just trying to get an appointment for a follow up from a reminder letter you sent me.

  Jun 13, 2023
Dr. Neville and his medical assistant were wonderful! Best care received by a neurologist in the past years. He is genuine, respectful, engaged and provides expert Information about my Parkinson's and I feel comforted. He speaks directly to me and I quite enjoy him. He takes action to provide me solutions for relief from my pain and discomfort. He also listens to my caregiver and family member. His chart notes show he truly heard and understood us. His medical assistant is very sweet and efficient.

Dr. Lawrence Neville is an excellent neurologist. This visit was a new patient appointment. He was very professional and skillful. He is much better than 2 neurologists from Kaiser. I am very happy that l changed from Kaiser to Legacy Health care system, starting January 01,2023.

  May 31, 2023
Thank you Dr. Neville it was a pleasure to see you & will see you next time!

  May 26, 2023
Dr Neville was amazing! One of the best providers I have ever had. Strongly recommend him to anyone that needs to see a neurologist. It was very difficult to make an appointment, I left a voice mail to schedule and didn't get a return call until 8 days later.

  May 11, 2023
Dr. Neville husband in really amazing. He has been working with me to find a solution. I am very grateful that I found him.

The medical assistant needs to attend training on their chairside manner. They were very abrasive and not friendly. Several times shutting me down with my communication to clarify my med changes. After the doctor left they forcefully handed me my after visit saying "you can go. Here is your SIX PAGE after visit" she never showed me the way out or thank me or ask if I had any questions. She didn't offer to help me make a follow up appointment or even hand off to the front desk. When u got in the car and reviewed my after visit it was wrong. It wasn't what we discussed and I didn't feel comfortable to go back.

  May 2, 2023
Length of time to wait after a referral.

  May 1, 2023
Most of the plans are excellent. All of the doctors we have met are very caring and UNDERSTANDING. Terrible handwriting!

  Apr 25, 2023
In all my years of seeing clinicians for a variety of reasons I'd rank Dr. Neville in the top 10%. This includes doctors at the Cleveland Clinic, in Chicago area and elsewhere in the Midwest and the Portland-Vancouver area. When we first moved to the greater Portland area I was concerned about finding an excellent internist and a neurologist and I'm pleased to say I found both among the Legacy Salmon Creek providers.

  Apr 25, 2023
I waited 11 mo to get in to see this provider. Multiple phone calls were made to ask about my status, during which I was told I would get a call. I never did and I did not know my referral could, and did expire. I had to get another referral and when I called in to ask about it was told it was not worded correctly. Could someone not contact my referring doctors office with this concern? Is It up to the patient to correct this? I did a lot of work as a patient, making calls and contacting my referring doctor multiple times. Very frustrating and without the support of my wife I could not do this. With all of that being said, I could not be more pleased with the care I received. I almost want to say it was worth the wait, but I think the wait was excessive and with better communication with the client perhaps this could be avoided in the future.

  Apr 24, 2023
Dr Neville listened to me and provided good care. I was satisfied, and thought that he was a great guy.

  Apr 20, 2023
Absolutely love the provider, but his office staff is severely lacking in work ethic and compassion. If it wasn't such a hassle to get into any neurology office and have to go through all the hoops again to get treatment, I would. NOT Because of the doctor but because of the office staff. Often times calls made were answered by unhelpful or rude staff. There are a handful that were very nice and understanding. The referrals team is a joke. They know or should know what insurance needs to approval a referral. They shouldn't take 5 months and several calls and emails from the patient and insurance company to get a referral approved. This was medical care that has severely affected my life and job and the lack of empathy, understanding, or act of doing their job was astonishing at times. I would not recommend this provider solely due to his referral team. No one should have to go through that much effort to receive help.

The team at this office is always courteous, caring, and helpful. They crate an environment where you're comfortable being honest and truly feel like they are here to help you more than anything. The overall atmosphere has helped me become more accepting of my condition and honest about my health with both myself and healthcare team. They're great at working with you to find solutions to your ailments

Receptionist needs to work on her communication skills. I told her I had checked in online and paid my co pay there. She asked all the Covid questions (which I expected), but then asked if she could change the card on file. I told her no, I had paid online. She asked the question the same exact way three times before explaining that when you pay online the system doesn't actually charge your card; it just holds it for authorization. Once she said that, then I said it was fine. All I could think was how hard this would be for elderly people to understand. She needs to be trained better.

  Feb 9, 2023

This was our first visit to establish with Dr. Neville. I found him informed of [name removed] case/records, congenial and easy to talk with. I was happy to hear he wants to hear from his patients if there is a concern. I look forward to him being [name removed] neurologist.

  Feb 2, 2023
Medical assistant a little rude.I waited almost an hour before my time with the doctor began. At first I waited 45 minutes in the procedure room. Then after that long, they arrived and explained to them that it might be better if I go to the bathroom real quick. So I went real quick and when I came back they were gone and I waited 15 more minutes for them to come back.I could have used more advice on actions I could take for my medical issue. Only really told what was wrong.

My mother and I were very impressed with Dr. Neville and will definitely recommend him if anyone is looking for a neurologist.

The nurse who went over my records before the doctor came in was quite unpleasant like she didn't want to be there and was frustrated with having to update medications The doctor was fantastic and I hope I don't have to see the nurse again with her bad attitude

I have poly neuropathy and am currently bedridden due to it. I came to Dr. Neville for help. He spent 20 minutes with me then made some recommendations based on this visit plus reading my file.I should mention that I have severe allergic reactions to medications including going into anaphylaxis shock several times and dying once, my heart had to be paddled back to life. I spent days in a coma as a result of an allergic reaction to taking a medication. Not only was he unaware of this, he seemed uninterested when I tried to tell him about this. There was a lot of information that Dr. Neville was missing yet he was happy to make recommendations about my health. I could go on about how bad this visit was but Instead I'll say that you're getting a negative review about a new doctor. This should be alarming to you. I'm more than happy to tell you more about the visit if you call. I have more to say but typing is challenging for me.
