Patient Testimonials

“Dr Bryan and his colleagues are really awesome and caring. The entire staff at Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center was awesome and caring also. Dr Bryan did a complete right hip replacement surgery. I am very satisfied with the hip replacement I went through.”
Gary T.


“★★★★★ Superior! Thanks to Dr. Bryan! ”
Dean S.


“”About 24 years ago my left hip was replaced with an artificial joint. My Orthopedic physician was a wonderful, caring man who did an excellent job of getting me back to walking.

Several years prior to his January 2018 retirement, my hip joint began to feel like it was moving. Over the last few months I could feel my hip slipping in and out more often. Unfortunately, my hip dislocated three times, in a week, sending me by ambulance to emergency each time. These were very painful incidents requiring x-rays, anesthesia and medication in the ER.

I was referred to Dr. Andrew Bryan by Dr. Pettit at OSM Center. He stayed after office hours on a Friday afternoon to see me. What a blessing! After consultation, Dr. Bryan assured me the type of joint repair required was one of his specialties. He explained the need to reline the cup and insert a ball stem with newer much stronger material.

What I appreciated most about Dr. Bryan was his knowledge, directness, calmness, and control of the situation. My surgery was very successful and soon after I was up and able to walk with only slight pain. Gone are the strong pain medications. Dr. Bryan gave me confidence and helped me through a pretty scary situation.

He was always available to answer questions and followed up on my every concern getting back to me immediately. Since my right hip will also eventually need surgery, I’m sure I’ll be seeing him often in the next several years. Thank you, Dr. Bryan for giving my mobility back.

Dr. Bryan relocated to join the OSM Center practice and it has been to my benefit that he did.”

“Dr. Bryan is an outstanding surgeon. He makes his patients feel very comfortable and is easy to talk to. He has trained at the best institutions in the country and it shows. I would let him take care of me and my family. I strongly recommend him!”
Thomas S.


“I know you said to wait until I am three months post-surgery to thank you, but I have been moved to do so now. I turned another corner a few days ago on this long, hard journey of recovery, and I am finally experiencing less pain (without pain meds) than I was before surgery. I am tasting the sweet relief of almost pain-free living and honestly, it has made me quite emotional, grateful, and reflective.

I found myself reflecting on the visits I had with you before my surgery. I turn over in my mind what you said and how thoughtfully you engaged with me. You let me have my ideas and opinions and guided the conversation so I would fee in control. To have surgery was always solely my decision. You were diligent about educating me, answering my questions, and talking about the risks.

When I reflect on those visits I think about how kind you have been like the day you comforted me when the burden of pain felt like mre than I could bear. Lastly, I want to share how nice it was to hear that the staff and nurses at the surgery center very much appreciate working with you.

I hope this heartfelt letter isn’t too weird, for that is what vulnerability does to us. It tenderizes our hearts and deepens our desire for connection. I also figure it might be at least a little interesting for you to know the musings of a patient. After all, you did tell me that you’d be my hip doc for the rest of my life. Those words were also significant — they were comforting and revealed to me your commitment.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me a new right hip — with two perfectly placed screws. And thanks for your warm, gentle presence, I consider you a gift in my life.”
Sarah


“I and my family have seen Dr. Weintraub for many years and his was to do my knee replacement surgery. However, he retired before I got it done. Dr. Bryan did an awesome job and will be doing my left knee in a week. I wouldn’t go to any other orthopedic clinic but this one!”
Cindy D.


“Wonderful care from all the team under Dr. Bryan. Surgery restored much more than I had imagined – and quicker! My stride was restored to normal from the first time I walked on the new hip the day of the surgery. Recovery has been smooth and carefully monitored.”
Virginia B.


“I have nothing but good things to say regarding Dr. Andrew Bryan & his staff. Nikki, his assistant in the office, is a real gem. She is such a breath of fresh air! I attribute her positive aura directly to getting to work with such a great doctor. Dr. Bryan’s bedside manner is wonderful! His genuine demeanor goes a long way. In addition, I need to give a shout out to the anesthesiologist, Dr. Carter & the whole surgery team (can’t remember everyone’s name). But I appreciated call from Dr. Carter night before surgery & her willingness to explain everything. Dr. Bryan leads from the front because his whole staff is awesome!”
Kim Y.


“I love the doctor, he’s awesome. I’ve been wanting to come back to see everyone. I had the most extraordinary care by Patty, Casey and Shawn. Patty is a superstar, above and beyond, one of the most marvelous extraordinary care persons.”
Jane


“Dr Bryan is amazing. He operated on both of my knees without any complications. His compassion for my health was shone by his care. Thank you!”
Ericka


“I am so glad my PCP referred me t[o Dr. Bryan. Dr. Bryan was so easy to talk to. He answered all my Questions about recovery. My hip replacement went very well. It has been two months and I am walking without a cane now. I worked hard to get this far. Trust Dr. Bryan.”
Phyllis


“I had a partial knee replacement 9-23-19 by Dr. Bryan at the Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Center of Oregon. My care was top notch from doctors, nurses, PA, technicians, and the hospital. Dr. Bryan gave me the information I needed to make the right decision about surgery to reach my goals.

I decided to have the surgery right away while my muscles were still strong and the arthritis less advanced. I believe whole-heartedly that not waiting had a positive impact on the speed and comfort of recovery. At 3.5 weeks from surgery I am able to walk normally, am starting to do stairs normally, and can bend to sit and get in a car.

I know others who have waited until they were immobile and desperate with pain before having surgery and experienced a longer and more difficult recovery. If you need a joint replacement, do yourself a big favor, see Dr. Bryan and don’t wait to have your surgery.
Patti


“This place is great. I had a total hip replacement in March of this year (2019) and Dr Bryan and his team were top notch from the start. Despite it being a major surgery I felt confident and comfortable throughout every aspect of the process.

Dr Bryan was easy and pleasant to work with, he instilled confidence and did an awesome job on the new hip. The difference is night and day in terms of pain and mobility. He has been just as great throughout the follow ups after the surgery.

His assistant Nikki is amazing too, she was incredibly patient with me and helped tremendously both before and after surgery, going above and beyond in my opinion! Barry the PA was great, really friendly and on top of it. Sarah was awesome and made sure I was prepared for the weeks and months following the surgery. Great place overall, I definitely recommend it!”
