I love Jessica and Dr. Samagh. They always remember me and I feel they must go over my chat before they see me in the room. They trust me taking care of my health needs and support my efforts to be healthy.

I've been to the office 3 times recently & never get the same person. Phone calls are also different people. Care has suffered.

On Friday afternoon I visited the office due to the upper stomachache, gas and diarrhea which had lasted for 2 days. I had some test taken on the same day but I finally got the result on Monday due to the weekend. Over the weekend I didn't feel better at all and wanted to know how to cure it as soon as possible. I hope that you or nurse can take care of the patient even holidays and weekends. Thanks

Jessica was awesome! We were on the same wavelength about my care.

Everyone in the clinic went out of their way to help me. They called the Hospital on my behalf to get a CAT Scan scheduled ASAP. When I arrived at the hospital, they knew I was coming and scooted me right in. A heck of a team.

Jessica is my preferred medical provider - competent, compassionate and caring - a rare find in health care today.

I love seeing Jessica. She doesn't in trust me talking my heart off.

Providence does not have enough dermatologists to see patients with neoplasms that could be cancerous in a timely manner. Waiting for a Providence dermatologist would be dangerous for me so my provider referred me to an outside provider which will be more expensive, but effective. Hire more dermatologists to keep up with the demand.

She listened and made recommendations and a good referral for me.

Overall I love this office.

She listened and explained every thing to me. She even schedule my appointment to see the specialist I felt comfortable with her she was not in a hurry I would be seeing her for my next visit

All my experiences are good.

Jessica was amazing. I was going through bad phase and Jessica hlped me a lot .

This provider PA Jessica Jimenez was very good BUT my regular doctor left me trying to find answers to a problem to me. I was/am very concerned! I am from Cleveland and they kept on a problem until it was solved!

Jessica was one of the best providers I have had since moving to Oregon four months ago. I really feel like I have some one who listens to my needs and is thorough, professional and attentive to my overall health. I would highly recommend her and when I need care I will return to her.

I Had a [...] that couldn't be taken care of in the office. office made immediate arrangements to be seen in another office right away

My primary care is Dr. [...]. Both Dr. [...] and Jessica are wonderful. [...]

I absolutely love Jessica - She is the best!

Very thorough and caring. I felt listened too and taken seriously. Very good experience with provider overall.

I'm always treated with respect and concern for my questions or results of labs. Someone always gets back to me within the day. [...] I have no complaints with with professionals or staff at this time.
