|Dr. Eberson has always made my child comfortable, we wouldn’t see any other orthopedic doctor!||100%|
|It is TERRIBLE customer service to double book patients when you don’t have the ability to have them seen in a timely fashion. We waited over an hour to go into an exam room and see the doctor, our appointment was at 930 and we did not leave until 11. The inconvenience this caused was unacceptable and showed little regard and respect for people’s time.||90%|
|It was a great visit and a nice place.||100%|
|My daughter is 10 and he is her favorite doctor.||100%|
|We were extremely disappointed we were forced to wait over 1.5 hours with a 5 week old and no one offering to have us reschedule at the beginning of the visit, or letting us how he was so tardy. Likewise, when he came in the room he didn't apologize for wasting so much of our time. Time is precious for everyone and this was extremely unprofessional. Likewise, he seemed totally uninformed as to why we were there. I assume they read the refferals. To be that late, without an leading apology for us won't ever work. His assistants response was "he is normally late and I have no control. I'mSorry you can come back"This was after waiting 1.5 hours. We didn't want to have to come back. We understand drs run late But it is super easy to be professional, lead with an apology, have your assistant help you and let patients know they can go home and to respect people's time.||0%|
|I was incredibly impressed with his ability to make my daughter feel at ease. His ability to make is not feel rushed and to answer any questions we might have. He was very patient and considerate of our time. I would absolutely recommend him and I am so happy we were able to see him.||100%|

|Dr Eberson was fantastic, but I was very upset that the staff made my 12 yr old daughter walk from the 4th floor down to the first floor through the entry way in a johnnie and carrying her own clothes. I had to hold her johnnie closed the whole time.||90%|
|DR. Eberson is a very good Dr. and good listener, I just wish he were more on time to scheduled appointment time and not be late all the time. We are usually seen 50 minutes or later after scheduled time which is very disappointing and frustrating. The maximum amount of time any scheduled patient should have to wait should only be 15‐20 minutes tops.||90%|
|He is great!||100%|
|As always, I am very pleased with Dr. Eberson’s service and his staff. Every visit, you guys makes us feel that you care.

For just meeting him for the first time I felt for once my son was in the best hands. He answered any questions I had and I felt like I got the best answers back. Thank you so much Dr.Eberson
I previously met with Dr. Terek and then followed up with Dr. Eberson. Both of them were amazing. Dr. Eberson was empathetic, kind and professional. I’d recommend this practice to anyone.
The only thing I was dissatisfied about was waiting over an hour for a child’s appointment. I feel as though when we should have been told that the doctor was running an hour behind. We then could have decided to stay or reschedule.

|We have been thoroughly pleased with the care provided by Dr. Eberson and appreciate his thoroughness, patient approach, and followup actions. The only thing that I consistently note in these surveys is that the wait time is fairly excessive. We arrived at 9:45 a.m. for a 10:00 a.m. appt. and still had to wait 30 minutes for my son's x‐ray. From start to finish‐‐check‐in, x‐ray, and appointment with provider‐‐we were at UO for 2 hrs. and 15 min.||100%|

|We waited over two hours to see dr ebeson. The nurse was not friendly at all moved us around in rooms.
