"Terrible. Does not spend quality time that is needed with new patients. Sorry, but really bad bedside manner. Hopefully he can take these reviews and change his demeanor and be a little more compassionate."

"Writing for my boyfriend because he doesn’t have the time or bandwidth after these past 8 months. He fractured C3 and damaged C1/2 transverse ligament in September. While we both initially appreciated Dr. Tien’s conservative approach and recommendation to forgo surgery, as the months went by and there was no progress in closing the gap in 1/2, Dr. Tien’s communication became vague and difficult to interpret. My bf asked what he can/can’t be doing, Dr. Tien’s response was ‘You have a broken neck, use your common sense.’ This felt dismissive and arrogant. We then compiled a list of specific questions which we emailed, the response to the list was ‘These things take time.’ It became clear we needed another opinion, so sent the X-rays and MRIs to another physician, who shared them with a colleague and both said he needed surgery the day of the accident as he was grossly unstable at C1-2. So three more visits to different Drs, one other in Bend, two in Portland, and all agree that this injury ...
had no hope of healing itself. They only needed to see the X-rays to see the instability. When we presented this info to Dr. Tien he ordered a high resolution MRI, meaning more time and money taken off of the work to have this done, and promptly after viewing it Dr. Tien agreed that surgery was indeed the solution to fix the instability between C1-2. He said that he would consult his mentor and be in touch…that was nearly two months ago. Needless to say, surgery is booked in Portland in June, ten months after the injury. Now we’re looking at another year of healing which could have been nearly complete at this point. Humans make mistakes, it’s to be expected, but I’m finding it hard to understand this level of negligent communication. "

"Did not answer questions my husband asked and gave no answer to solving his back problems. Stated not much he can do. No reason as to why and did not spend very much time with husband nor did he go over the PET scan. We have searched for another opinion. "
