The doctor who was looking at my hand was very rude and didn't make me feel better at all. It was the worst visit I have ever done.

For my sons fingertip amputation, the front desk said we could have my husband call in and be part of our visit since he wasn't allowed in, And when I brought this up with our doctor and asked to call he said it would be better later, so I thought we could include them later, but then he was done talking and it was over. He didn't want to take the time to let me include my husband, and that didn't feel good. It's like the doctor knew the injury wasn't a big deal, but it was a big deal to us, especially my husband since he witnessed it. Also I got all the information I needed, but I felt like I had to work for it and ask each thing, so communication was tricky and I felt a little silly asking for the details I needed, like he thought it was obvious but it wasn't to me. But we got the care we needed and he was good at explaining once I got the questions asked.

this dr was very rude to me just for having my phone in my hand when he came in. then he just took my splint off the hospital put me in and through it on the floor like he was discussted with it. then he made me do things with my hand that made me hurt really bad and want to cry. my mom tried to tell him to be careful because the Dr in the er said she had to breaks and he just looked at her and said I highly doubt anyone told u her hand was broken and my mom said yes he did it's even in the take home paper work and he said again I highly doubt anyone told u that her hand was broken. then he said what she needs to do is work on what issues caused her hand to be hurt and left the room and came back with discharge papers. my was basically treated like a liar. the Dr in the hospital told my mom he saw to fracture and referred us to a hand specialist to have my hand looked at. but the lady the referred us to didn't take my insurance so my mom called this place. I wish she would have never brought me here . that dr should not treat people so mean

The doctor didn't seem to take my daughter's pain and lack of mobility concerns to heart. He dismissed her (and my) concerns as just normal joint popping, even though it is causing her pain and restricting her mobility. I understand she may not have a catastrophic injury, but it is still causing her stress and discomfort, and the doctor didn't seem to try to find the root of the problem or offer any solutions for easing her discomfort.

Everyone in the office was great except the doctor. He was condescending and snappy and made us and probably his resident feel icky. He was knowledgeable, but most doctors are knowledgeable, and we expect them to also be kind and compassionate.

Dr. Umberhandt was great! He used humor to connect with my daughter, and spoke to her about her health instead of to me.

Dr. Umberhandt was excellent, he did a great job listening and addressing my questions and concerns. He was attentive and personable as he spoke to me on a relatable level, in a way that I could understand the information. The front desk staff did her job though I didn't feel she stood out as "courteous" or "friendly." overall, I am very happy with my experience with Dr. Umberhandt and feel comfortable and safe having him work with my little princess.

My daughter came in for a broken finger exam. She initially had a PA examine her - then finished the exam & left to get the final paperwork. All of a sudden a doctor came in & redid the whole exam & appt. He undermined the PA & the most upsetting thing was that he did an unnecessary exam on my daughters finger again. This caused her unnecessary pain in her broken finger. She did not need the 2nd exam, as this doctor, told us the same info & did same exam as the PA.

I didn't care for the UMBERHANDT, ROBERT C who saw me. I thought that he didn't answer all of my questions, and skipped to conclusions fast, and didn't take time with me, It felt really rushed, also he twisted and pulled my wrist where i got hurt and I told him it hurt but he continued. After the appointment the pain was 20/10 and when i got at the office the pain was 9/10. If/when I go back I will Defiantly request a different doctor I did not appreciate nor like how he responded to my injury nor answered my questions and talked back to me. I will however tell people what a nice reception people they have but don't get the UMBERHANDT, ROBERT C Unless you like your injury pulled and twisted and rushed and hurt worse. I did not like my experience with UMBERHANDT, ROBERT C at all i give him 2/10 at best.

The only problem is that they were Oregon State Beavers fans!

Dr Rob was great with my son. He joked with him to help him relax. He also understood the position of a parent trying the make the best decision for their child.
