very good doctor

Dr. Engh is tremendous. His knowledge and demeanor are rarely found together...and should be commended!

August 08, 2016

Didn't see doctor until 90 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. Sat in exam room, waited a long time, saw resident, waited again. This doctor is good, but the amount of time a patient has to sit and wait is unconscionable and devalues the patient's time and is not acceptable. Also, this is typical of a visit to this office.

Dr. Engh and his staff are great. My questions and any concerns are always answered. I feel that he takes time to really listen to me - as his patient. I always get the feeling that my treatment plan decisions come from him and me and I'm good with that type of doctor and those types of plans.

Dr. Engh is very personable and very good at explaining conditions in terms that are easy to understand. each year he remembers me and my case with no problem, and I greatly appreciate his genuine concern and care for myself and his other patients

Love Dr. Engh! I just hate how hydrocephalus is so unpredictable and you can't always tell if there's something wrong with the shunt or not...but that's nobody's fault. I guess hydrocephalus patients are just meant to be extra special.

No written documentation provided upon completion of the visit . No written patient education detailing diagnosis, treatment or follow-up plan. I feel this is not good practice when you are asking a patient to consider treatment for a brain tumor. A link to an educational website at minimum would be appreciated. If the surgeon is limited for time his assistant should be available to participate in the consult and provide follow-up patient information.

I was very pleased with my (first) visit to Dr. Engh. He answered all my questions and concerns as to not to proceed with surgery immediately if not needed. He is proceeding with other options for my spinal problems. His staff is courteous and returns calls in a timely manner and is more than helpful.

Dr. Engh is always friendly and knows my background well. Nurse Patty stepped in to say hello and update some information which was nice.
