I like Dr. K and I think he is looking out for me and my health. My only complaint is that sometimes he speeds through things and doesn't give me a full chance to really speak my mind. It's not that he has bad intentions, I just would prefer to have him not be so speedy and give me more time to express everything.

The reception desk paperwork and instructions for the annual medicare visit are complex and difficult to understand and the reception staff are of little help, and seem put off by questions. I'm treated better by minimum wage fast food employees,

I finished my checkup and went back out to wait to be called for my blood draw. After 15 minutes I asked the front desk had they forgot about me; they said I had to go to the hospital. I found out later that I had to make an online appointment. Someone should have told me about the change in policy, I wasted valuable time off from work

I appreciate his willingness to respect my personal choice about the COVID vaccine. We don't agree on it but he is respectful about it. This is a big deal to me.

Wasn't sure when the ordering of the blood work was done. It was on order and I went on [date removed] to get the blood work done. It was forwarded to me on the internet and Dr. K then sent word through the process the results to the testing. It was done in a short time period. Very nice job on the lab and with Dr. K.

As we talked about SOB & physical conditioning, it would have been appropriate to examine me, which was not done.

Good experience - I appreciate Dr. Krishnasamy's respect for my position on the Covid vaccines ( I'm under care of a Oncologist at OHSU ) - even though my position does not aline with his - its very important that my position is respected by him and it was

I felt rushed through the appointment and not heard by the assistant. I had a previous experience where the blood pressure device was leaking and noted that there could be a problem with my reading this time too. She simply hurried on.
