I have one word to describe Dr. Dierks: incompetent. After suffering from severe facial pain for several years and having several root canals done and re-done, he performed an apicoetomy - which did not relieve the pain. He said he didn't know what was wrong and suggested I join a pain group. I later discovered (on my own) that I had trigeminal neuralgia and eventually had surgery (micro vascular decompression) at OHSU. I am now pain free. Dr. Dierks failed to diagnose my condition. Not good.

Going through a traumatic surgery, Dr. Dierks is the doctor. He was extremely compassionate and spent considerable time going over the surgery with me. He was very caring and still is as I go for follow up visits. I would highly recommend him. Amazing surgeon!

It took a long time to get an appointment. They kept me waiting. When 1/2 hour after my appointment time, I was getting ready to leave. Then they brought me to an examination room where I could hear a small office party going on while I waited another 1/2 hour. When I got up to leave, *then* they explained that the doctor was running late. I'd had enough between the unexplained wait and the rudeness of putting me within earshot of a party. I never saw Dr. Dierks, but have given his bedside manner and time spent one star.

Great service and an outstanding surgeon. Very personable and skilled. My surgery went even better than I expected. I highly recommend Dr. Dierks.
