The doctor did not consider my full chart or circumstances and proceeded to change my treatment plan 2 weeks before i leave the county to care for a very sick mother. (Open heart...)
I explained i have not the money, insurance, time or interest in more evasive treatments at this time, which fell on def ears. I now understand why it was so easy to get an apt with him.
Was clearly concerned with "his prerogative" than my medical and personal best interest. Bed side manner was off the chart in the wrong direction.
I had to leave the appointment after he said "take it or leave it" I have never been treated like this and he should not be paid for this visit.
I will request a refund of my deductible.
Perhaps he had a bad day, but taking it out on sick patients is not professional or except-able, either is eluding negatively about my previous doctor who was great.
Should i file a complaint with the Medical Board.
Fyi: My wife and i are owed an apology, who is is now looking for a new Doctor as she will not be seeing this one.

I went to see a neurologist at The Portland Clinic, Dr Suvarna Palla. She was dismissive toward me and even laughed at me (my husband was present). I was appalled! It is my suspicion that she did not want to take care of someone who was involved in a MVA which they stamp in huge red letters on every page in your chart. I am not on pain medication.

Regardless of the source of injury, a physician is relied upon to be a partner in healing and maintaining health. To think that I have to pay this provider to be humiliated!

I plan to report this doctor to The Oregon Board of Medical Examiners.

I felt the need to respond to some of the other reviews, which I cannot for a moment understand. I have been a patient of the Portland Clinic now for 3 years and have been overwhelmingly impressed with the quality and efficiency of care I receive there. Having been to several other doctor offices around town, I can tell you that Portland Clinic is the best I've seen in Portland in my entire life. You cannot find quality and service like this anywhere in the US currently, and I'm not exaggerating.

Scheduling: In the last 5 times I've needed to make an appointment to see a dr, I've never had to wait more than 48 hours to get in... in most cases they got me in SAME DAY or NEXT. That is unheard of nowdays in health care. Also, when I come in, I never wait more than 10 or 15 min to see the doctor. I can't understand how they do it, but I'm so impressed and thankful.

Knowledge: In several cases I had diagnosed myself using common knowledge and online resources, and felt convinced I knew what my diagnosis was. I then went to the doc simply to get a prescription. Within minutes in both cases, the doctors were able to correctly diagnose me with something completely different, and they were right every time. Incredible.

Personable: The 2 doctors I've met with at the Portland Clinic were both very, very personable and down-to-earth real people. They shook my hand, took the time to sit and talk with me about my diagnosis and options, and I have never felt rushed whatsoever. I know doctors are busy nowdays and rarely have time to spend more than a few minutes with a patient, but they always took their time for me and I appreciate it so much.

I don't write many reviews but having been extremely well treated here, I wouldn't trust my health to anyone else at this point. I would highly recommend the Portland Clinic, and I hope things always stay the same for them.

The Portland Clinic is horrendous!!! After accepting my payment, they dismissed me from the clinic and NEVER EVEN NOTIFIED ME!!! I didn't find out until I tried to get my monthly pain prescription refill. Now I am left high and dry (and in significant pain) with no recourse!! All this after I stressed to my doctor not 2 months before that I was terrified of being left on my own to figure out how to deal with this MVA related pain for the rest of my life....and he assured me that wouldn't be the case....THANKS FOR NOTHING!!

The staff was very friendly and the clinic was nice enough, but I felt like I was an annoyance to Dr. Trafficante. He was nice and seemed intelligent, but not thorough. I left feeling like he thought I made my symptoms up and I left with no advice other than take some Ibuprofin. I would have liked for him to at least suggest some possible problems. Overall I feel like it was a waste of money and time.

although i've had some good experiences with prompt service when calling the advice nurse, when i'm actually there i feel as if i'm a sheep being herded around. although they strive for maximum efficiency, i felt it to be cold.
