About Me:

Born at Emanuel hospital. Raised in West Portland, married 22 years with two great kids. I love getting to know people and make them feel comfortable in the exam room. I find people's medical problems can be understood to a much deeper degree by getting to know them on a personal basis. I try my best to spend the time with each person that is needed to help the best I can. I work very hard to be able to see my patients on a same day basis whenever possible.

Education:
Residency: Legacy Portland Hospitals
Medical School: Jefferson Medical College
Post-Baccalaureate pre-medical program: Portland State University
Bachelor of Science: University of Oregon
Year I Started Practice: 2003
Hospitals Served: Legacy Emanuel Medical Center
Publication: Neurosurgical Clinics of North America

Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

I've known Steve since he started his practice in Portland. I almost treat him as a son rather than a doctor. In fact he is younger than my son.

I was assured there are no "dumb" questions. It's so important for a senior to ask if a bothersome symptom is significant or not.

Dr. Seres' always let's me discuss with him all the possibilities of both my illness's and with medications until we are both satisfied with a course of treatment. I always come away feeling very confident that I was right to come for the visit and that I will be taken care of in the best way possible. I highly recommend Dr. Steven Seres to anyone.

I think Dr. Seres is awesome, but I hesitate to recommend him to friends/family because I know he is not accepting new patients. That seems to be the problem at Legacy -- good providers are over-booked with clients.

best doctor I've ever had. so good in fact that I will be changing to him for my primary care. not sure why it's so hard for other doctors to understand what this one does - that I am a human being with both medical and emotional needs, and I deserve for both to be met during the course of care.

I arrived a few minutes late due to confusion about location, poor signage on the medical center campus, and construction. Despite arriving 5min late for a same day appointment, the check in staff was super friendly and understanding. The MA and provider were attentive, thorough, and kind. I'm very appreciative that Dr Seres could fit me in on short notice and help me avoid an expensive urgent care or ER appointment.

I have been a patient of Dr. Seres' for many years and hopefully will be for many more. I have moved out of [location removed] and STILL drive to see Dr. Seres. Once my daughter outgrew a pediatrician, she, too, became a patient of Dr. Seres. The office where he is currently working is very professional and courteous. They even got me in on the same day when I didn't have a scheduled appointment to address my recently raised blood pressure. I was in town for another appointment and they accommodated me, which I appreciated immensely. I highly recommend Dr. Seres and this office to anyone! Thank you.

Dr. Seres was very kind, listened actively and helped me immensely. He went above and beyond the call of duty to help me during a very difficult time. He had to do research to help me, called me exactly when he said he would, and never let the ball drop, despite how much extra effort this was. I really appreciate everything he did for me.

My regular primary care doctor was not in, but the office always arranges for me to see someone when need arises. I was able to see Dr. Seres within a few hours for my concern and was happy to see him (I've had occasion to see him in the office twice before). He is thorough, courteous but friendly and concerned, listens really well, and discussed the options with me (explaining details really well) before we decided which way to go with the condition that had arisen. I felt in the best of hands and am (as always!) really satisfied with the fine care I received.

Dr. Seres is an excellent doctor but getting an appointment with him is extremely difficult. Even if I am very sick or in pain, the only appointment I can get is two weeks away. The people making appointments advise me to call at 8 am and try for a same day appointment, but I am unable to do that. Dr. Seres has said if I run into that problem again, to sent him a message and he will intercede for me. I am reluctant to do that because he shouldn't need to get involved like that.

Dr. Seres is great. I want to be his friend. He makes me feel important and my care. However, he sees so many patients! This is not his fault. It is the systems fault. And legacy should be giving the doctors more time and leave blanks in provider schedules for same day add ons and if they dont get filled, the doctor can a break!. This doctor is one of the best I have had a legacy!

He had my health records except my vaccine records from Legacy Employee health. His system kept sending me messages that I was missing shits I had received from Legacy. This seemed silly, that he had to manually input that information from within the "Legacy" system. Small thing, but mentioning it in case it's an easy fix. I have recommended Dr. Seres to many people.

Dr. Seres always spends enough time with me, answers all questions and is very empathetic. He never makes me feel like he's rushed. I have access to my health and use it often to check lab results and to email him with questions. I always get answers the same or next day. I think Dr. Seres is the best PCP I've ever had and have referred 5 people to him. His assistance are equally as helpful.
