About Me:

My clinical interest is in the improvement of my patients' lives through personalized compassionate care, with an emphasis on preservation and restoration of vision and eye health. I fulfill this interest through the comprehensive management of a wide variety of eye-related health conditions. These conditions range from highly acute issues like ophthalmic trauma, angle closure, and ocular inflammation, through more chronic diseases like diabetes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. I also enjoy seeing healthy eyes, where I have the opportunity to educate my patients on how to maintain excellent eye health. One of my favorite things to do for my patients is cataract surgery. Cataract surgery can safely and effectively restore sight to an otherwise visually-disabled eye. Even better, with only a slight modification in technique and instrumentation, I can take cataract surgery to developing countries and help tackle one of the worlds leading causes of curable blindness.

I greatly appreciated the time Dr. Acohido spent with me explaining my tests results, the progress in my eyes, and the questions I had. I felt he cared about me and my health.

  Jan 31, 2024
Excellent.

  Jan 31, 2024
I dont "enjoy" doctors visits, but its always a pleasure to be around this group. They work so well together and the process is friendly and easy.

  Jan 31, 2024
Dr Acohido has always been so professional and caring such a delight to have a provider who listens and provides so much great information I need his staff listen and show they care!

  Jan 26, 2024
I'm very happy with the Legacy Medical care & all the staff working together

  Jan 26, 2024
It was as good an experience as possible.

  Jan 25, 2024
This was my first visit to this provider.

  Jan 10, 2024
Waited to see provider in exam room for over 30 minutes.

  Jan 4, 2024
Dr. Acohido was very helpful and provided information I had not received from my previous ophthalmologist.

  Dec 21, 2023
This Dr and office are exemplary in their care of me. Very thankful.

  Dec 20, 2023
Dr. Acohido is great. He could benefit though from having another provider at his Emanuel location. He has too many patients to see on his own, so patients end up waiting a long time in the patient room to see him.

  Dec 20, 2023
First visit. New dr. Pleased.

  Dec 20, 2023
My only concern was the unnecessary and very long wait between dialating my eyes and seeing the doctor -- almost an hour with no checking on me by anyone. I had to remind someone that I was waiting. Other than that, the treatment was excellent.

  Dec 14, 2023
I appreciate Dr very much he's always professional luv him and his work

  Dec 11, 2023
Everyone is always so nice and courteous. Dr. Acohido is the best. He shows genuine concern and gives the best care.

  Dec 7, 2023
So patient, kind, informative and reassuring!! Much gratitude.

  Dec 4, 2023
One receptionist was nice and helpful. The other one seemed to be training her. The one that was training was rude.

  Nov 29, 2023
This is was my initial visit for Cataract repair I didn't get in on time but once called in, everything done efficiently and effectively. The technician was very thorough, efficient and friendly! Dr. Acohido was personable and listened to my concerns and questions. I'd would greatly recommend him.I hope the Pre-Op, op, and Post-Op goes as well as this first initial visit.I really appreciate everyone whom is in the medical profession right now, they're over worked and under staffed but still have risen to keep up with their demands to provide excellence care.

  Nov 20, 2023
Thorough

  Nov 20, 2023
After a Horrific experience with my previous provider(Eye Health Northwest) I was just delighted with my new physician! He as kind, encouraging, responsive, and made me feel cared for. I know he is newly in practice so I will refer to him anytime I get a chance!

  Nov 17, 2023
Those was the first time I ever saw this provider. I believe he will become my regular provider.

  Nov 15, 2023
I scheduled one hour for my visit, which took one hour and a half due to waiting. I was first called back 35+ minutes after my appointment time. This Is not usual for this practice.

  Nov 15, 2023
Dr Acohido has been our family Ophthalmologist for many years now. While this visit was primarily concerned with my specific eye care needs, he did refer to our daughter, & we exchanged a relevant dialogue pertaining to her. Dr Acohido is wise to review family needs that pertain to the concerns of a special needs client. We are grateful for his oversight of our family's needs.

  Nov 6, 2023
All good. This was a follow-up appt after bilateral YAG capsulotomy procedures.

  Nov 3, 2023
This office was fabulous! They got me in right away! The ophthalmologist was so nice and helpful. He explained everything to me so I understood what was going on with my eyes. I have already even his name and number to friends of mine.

  Nov 3, 2023
Always good

  Nov 3, 2023
First visit to this clinic and this provider. I came away very impressed and pleased. I was disappointed only by how long I had to wait between initial contact with the clinic and when I could get in to see the provider. I was very impressed with this provider and the staff. He was very knowledgeable and was great with me.

  Oct 30, 2023
Good

  Oct 30, 2023
Dr. Acohido is personable and definitely listens. I'd recommend him to anyone I know

  Oct 26, 2023
Good

  Oct 20, 2023
Very thorough, communicative and friendly!

  Oct 20, 2023
My visit was the first with this provider regarding a Cataract Procedure. Both the staff and the doctor were very helpful and answered all my questions. My experience was very pleasant and efficient, but I also felt I was listened to and respected.

  Oct 19, 2023
I had a good experience. They were very accommodating by helping me with a wheelchair due to the lack of my mobility.

  Oct 18, 2023
Met Dr for the first time as my opthalmologist retired. I'll be back

  Oct 18, 2023
They were very awesome in helping me overcome my fears getting through some tests I normally won't let anyone do on my eyes.

  Oct 16, 2023
The visit was very good, the staff was amazingly great.

  Oct 13, 2023
The technician was fantastic! It was my first eye appointment in decades and I was super nervous and he did an excellent job making me feel at ease. Once the doctor came in I was very ready to hear about my eye health.

  Oct 4, 2023
I'm usually always more than satisfied with providers at Legacy, but my experience at Devers in Tualatin was beyond anything I could have asked for. The provider and his staff were incredible, and I've already convinced my parents to make appointments with the clinic for better eye care than they are receiving from their current (non-Legacy) clinic. My family has had terrible experiences with other hospital systems and their clinics. I will always praise Legacy for all their good work, and Devers in Tualatin is no exception to the long list of amazing providers offered by Legacy

  Sep 29, 2023
Treated with respect, not like I was just an old dumb grandma

  Sep 29, 2023
Everyone was wonderful . Thank you.

  Sep 29, 2023
Best experience in last 2 years with a Legacy provider.

  Sep 28, 2023
I think Dr. Acohido is caring and very professional.He knows his patients.Brian one of Dr, Acohido's staff is fabulous too. Today I recommended them to a friend.

  Sep 25, 2023
This was my first visit.I'm impressed.I've dealt with some bad doctors and clinics that cheated me by doing test not ordered by my primary care physician and therefor my insurance refused to pay so I had to pay.I was shocked and angry.This Doctor, clinic and office is very professional and well run.I'm impressed.

  Sep 18, 2023
I waited in the exam room for over 45 minutes before the provider finally showed up that is not acceptable spent 5 minutes with me and that was the end

  Sep 13, 2023
Dr Acohido was knowledgeable and easy to talk to and inspired confidence

  Sep 8, 2023
Medical assistant a little hard to understand but very kind and patient.

  Sep 8, 2023
Overall this eye evaluation appointment went well, but the provider does not have my complete medical history, so he does the best with whatever he can.

  Sep 7, 2023
Had cataract surgery and it solved the issue. Great office and Doctor Acohido is knowledgeable and friendly.

  Aug 21, 2023
Doctor was running late. Apologetic when he came in. Very personable and took the time needed to help me. Excellent provider

  Aug 14, 2023
All good

  Aug 14, 2023
This last visit went promptly. Prior visit I waited 1.5 hours to see doctor.

  Jul 28, 2023
Everything was good!!

  Jul 27, 2023
Friendly caring staff at every level at Devers in my experience

  Jul 27, 2023
Very pleased the way I'm treated at the provider's office.

  Jul 26, 2023
Always a great experience! Office was running a bit late for my appt., but both staff and Dr. Acohido apologized!

  Jul 26, 2023
Everybody was very friendly and helpful at this visit and treat you with the greatest respect.

  Jul 24, 2023
Never have I had a bad experience with this provider. He is always smiling, very, very nice and I really like him.

  Jul 24, 2023
Dr Acohido was very kind, friendly, and respectful.

  Jul 20, 2023
Experiences related to this visit couldn't have been better.

  Jul 19, 2023
Dr. Acohido is the most interested in my eye problems than any other doc I have seen. I wish he could be my primary care doc, but he is an ophthalmologist not a PCP.

  Jul 14, 2023
Totally excellent!

  Jul 14, 2023
Dr. Acohido is an extremely competent, personable and kind physician. This was my first visit and I am so glad that he is my physician. He took the time to answer all my questions and explain procedures which may come in the future. The front staff greeted me with professionalism and kindness. Definitely a 10. My tech also showed competence and kindness. Also, a 10. I left feeling very pleased with my visit. That doesn't happen everywhere.

  Jul 12, 2023
Good listener, findings well explained, expectations for how condition will likely progress

  Jul 10, 2023
The day I visited, Dr. Acohido apologized for my wait time. He was dealing with the aftermath of some emergency eye injuries, so I understood the reasons for the delay.

  Jul 10, 2023
No comment; all good

  Jun 29, 2023
Good help with the location, and got checked in on time but has to wait a little for my doctor to come in .

  Jun 21, 2023
I needed to be seen quickly for a seemingly serious eye condition. My regular ophthalmologist was unavailable so an appointment was made with Dr. Acohido within hours. That was remarkable service and I appreciated it very much.

  Jun 21, 2023
Friendliness, smile. Good non hurried appoiontment

  Jun 21, 2023
My appointment was informative because I learned that I now need eye drops for glaucoma.

  Jun 16, 2023
Always a good experience with the doctor and his staff.

  Jun 14, 2023
It would be great to let patients know about wait times.

  Jun 14, 2023
Answered my questions

  Jun 12, 2023
The clinic was short one technician that day so one technician was doing the work for all Providers. He apologized for any delay as a result of short staffing. However, He was NOT late, he spent adequate time with me and answered questions I had. The physician followed his visit within 5 minutes.

  Jun 9, 2023
First of all, let me begin with the support staff. They could not have been better. I saw Dr. Acohido for a routine yearly eye checkup. I am [age removed] years old. This exam was not up to the usual standards of exams I have had in the past. I talked about some concerns I had and I felt as though he was disinterested. My eyes were dilated and now I wonder why. He never used the ophthalmoscope. When I asked him why he seemed perplexed like he didn't know what I was talking about. When I left the appointment I wondered what had just happened. I felt like my appointment was incomplete and fruitless. Very disappointed.

  Jun 9, 2023
Great experience with all concerns addressed.

  Jun 8, 2023
Everyone was so nice! It was a quick visit but never felt rushed. I felt heard. The assistant and provider were both very clear without ever being patronizing. Just superb bedside manner. I am so appreciative of everyone there, and i would happily recommend anyone to them.

  Jun 5, 2023
I am very happy with all care at Devers Eye Clinic. However I do not like the MyChart on-line registration. I update my prescriptions but when I get my after visit summary it still shows meds I have tried to remove. Some I have not taken for 3 years. I question whether anything I take the time to enter ever get seen?

  Jun 5, 2023
When I phone for a new patient appointment I was told to leave a message on the new patient line and someone would call me within 2 weeks. No one did so I followed up. When the receptionist heard that I was seeking an eval for glaucoma she put me on hold and found me an appointment with Dr. A. I am very grateful. He and his resident doctor were thorough and caring and explained my test findings and their Impressions and diagnoses very clearly. Thanks you!

  Jun 1, 2023
Awesome provider and staff

  May 31, 2023
I really appreciate the care I receive here. Thank you

  May 24, 2023
Usually get to my appointments 10 to 15 minutes early. Don't mind waiting for the office to open but there's nowhere to sit or the outside and they've taken the chairs away. Some people are handicap that's probably the only issue for some of the senior citizens

  May 24, 2023
I appreciate Dr acohido and his staff; they manage to be both efficient and warm/kind, and he gives excellent care.

  May 15, 2023
All staff members were extremely respectful & friendly!

  May 11, 2023
I and my family get our eye care at Devers Eye Care, with Dr. Acohido (and myself, also sith Dr. Pasadica); we have ALWAYS felt cared about, and cared for with the greatest attention and expertise I've ever received in any setting

  May 4, 2023
I went in to get more information on my dry eye macular degeneration. The asst. thought I needed a vision test though I kept telling her I was just there for macular degeneration, she continued.

  May 4, 2023
The people I saw renewed my faith in the medical system. They were kind and friendly and well informed

  May 3, 2023
Nothing else to say. He's a great doctor.

  May 3, 2023
The M.A. Assisting seemed a little unsure of what he was doing, or supposed to be doing, with regard to testing. He could use some guidance with this. He was very pleasant though.

  May 1, 2023
Love Dr. Blake and his staff. Excellent.

  May 1, 2023
This was a post op visit. Prior to this last visit there were different staff working there and they didn't respond to phone or MyHealth questions/messages. That has changed. If you have a postop problem, due to the phone system used, it's not possible to speak to a live person unless you wish to make an appointment so leaving a phone message for a tech is the only option, those techs are supposed to answer same day, they did not! After mentioning the issue to Dr. Acohido I believe he may have made discussed this with staff ! All is good.

  Apr 28, 2023
DR. Acohido was friendly and Courteous .

  Apr 27, 2023
Wait time in the lobby was 45 min. After the medical assistant took me to the exam room and took necessary exam info, I was left in the exam room for another 40 min. Never at any time was I notified that the doctor was running late. In fact, after the med asst took my info I was told by him that the doc would be in immediately. VERY POOR communication and disregard for my schedule. What should have been a 30 to 45 min visit took almost 2 hours, with no explanation or apology. I understand unavoidable situations can impact the schedule, but proper communication goes a long way in easing that anxiety for a patient.

  Apr 24, 2023
Best eye doctor I've ever had. Dr. Acohido is awesome!

  Apr 20, 2023
It was a good visit, provider was very helpful in explaining the procedures that I will be going through.

  Apr 20, 2023
Excellent care

  Apr 17, 2023
My experience was good today, no complaints!

  Apr 14, 2023
I am very satisfied with all of my Legacy Healthcare experiences! All doctors and staff have been fabulous!

  Apr 13, 2023
Professional, friendly, considerate, helpful. Thank you!

  Apr 13, 2023
Dr. Acohido is the most attentive health care pro I have had at Emanuel.

  Apr 12, 2023
Dr. Acohido is excellent! Trying to make an appointment is horrible - the call tree routes you all over & it is very difficult to talk to a person. It seems like there's one receptionist w/Legacy Optical appointments! (It's difficult to get through.)

  Apr 3, 2023
Visit was very good. Provider answered my questions and addressed my concerns. Everyone was warm friendly and professional

  Apr 3, 2023
The phone contact with Devers Eye clinic is always frustrating. Very long wait times for a person to schedule, usually 5-10 minutes on hold. AND they refer to you as customers, not patients. That implies that this is just a business with no concern or care. Not a good message from Drs.!

  Apr 3, 2023
I understand that emergencies arise and that they need to make me wait; that's fine. I don't understand why patients aren't told WHY they are waiting-- I had a 45 minute wait after the exam before I saw Dr. Acohido. That isn't his fault, but I believe that I should have been told what was going on. And, there was also another patient waiting also.The medical care is very good, but the basic courtesy... Not so much.

  Apr 3, 2023
Good

  Mar 24, 2023
Dr. Acohido is excellent. I see him only for eye issues. The person at the front desk was also excellent, and the best I have ever experienced in the years I have been there. The doctor was running late and I was notified about the time which I appreciated.

  Mar 23, 2023
Dr.Acohido actually sees his patients!He explains, answers questions, never seems rushed or is abrupt.The staff reflects his calm and thorough demeanor.I always feel well attended to and I have recommended him to my friends.Dr.Acohido is the best!.

  Mar 23, 2023
N/A. Good experience

  Mar 17, 2023
My visit was terrific. The only negative is waiting for someone to contact me to schedule my cataract surgery. Was supposed to be contacted last week, had not so called and left a message for a call back. Still waiting this week, hoping to hear back soon.

  Mar 13, 2023
I'm an pleased with the results of my visit. I gained the knowledge of not having glaucoma or diabetes related to my eyes.

  Mar 10, 2023
Very good experience. Doctor and tech gave me information I did not have that gave me confidence. Also they were flexible when I had to leave to pick up grandson

  Mar 9, 2023
Always a good experience.

  Mar 7, 2023
Dr. Acohido is an excellent eye physician. He is also easy to understand and to appreciate. He is informative and interested in following up with me after an eye procedure.

  Mar 6, 2023
Dr. Acohido & staff are respectful, helpful, good listeners. I highly recommend your eye care.

  Mar 6, 2023
Excellent experience with this office and provider.

  Mar 6, 2023
Waited in exam room for a longer time than anticipated. Busy morning for Dr.

  Mar 2, 2023
Good experience - will return.

  Mar 2, 2023
Bad communication in the office. Receptionist did not tell me they were running an hour behind. When I finally got into a room, the assistant started the eye exam but then said "I'll be right back" and left for 1/2 an hour. Then waited for doctor another 20 minutes.

  Mar 1, 2023
All experiences have been A+
