What Our Patients Say…
About the Practice:
What a great team for our family and extended family’s health care needs! If only you would all move to Ontario Canada! Excellent correspondence and availability for patients, in our experience. We also appreciate the personal concern and support. It really feels like you are addressing a patient as a whole person and not just a symptom of a disease. –AS
Doctors at the Bambú Clinic are always there for us and we appreciate it. Through your interaction with our family, you have taught us a healthier way to live and motivated us to share this with others; even if it has to include learning to tolerate the warming socks procedure!!! –KS
I believe naturopathic is the best option. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They always go out of their way to get me the info I need. I always leave feeling like they have done all they can to help. I really appreciate that. Thank you for your service. –TL
I originally sought acupuncture for a stubborn tendonitis. When healing did not occur, I was with diagnosed with food sensitivities that also affected my gastrointestinal functioning. In my early 50s, change of diet and some lifestyle changes improved my gastrointestinal health immediately and consistently, and the tendonitis disappeared. –BC
Listening. Treating my whole body instead of only my symptoms. Answering all of my questions. Helpful in treating my children. Referring me to other specialists if my problem is beyond the help or knowledge of my Bambú Clinic doctor. –CK
I trust the doctors’ experience and advice absolutely. We feel like the doctors are not just professionals whom we see in a medical clinic, but more like family members who just happen to be in an office when we visit them. The staff has made it clear over the years that my family’s total health, not just physical, is important to them and that they truly care that we are well. –RM
Caring about the individual. Respecting and working with individual health “quirks.” Highly personalized service. Informative health newsletters. Parking garage validation is appreciated. Reasonable prices on stock/supplements/merchandise. I especially appreciate the respect the doctor shows for my own body and its multiple sensitivities. –DM
You provide a very calming and nurturing environment. I feel that I’m being paid special attention to during my appointment and I’m being listened to on many levels. We think the office staff at Bambú is wonderful! –TJC
It’s nice to come to a place where our healing is taking place on so many levels. My husband and I both are walking proof that, despite life challenging illnesses, we can improve our quality of everyday life and overall health. We both attribute our positive progress to the care we’ve received at Bambú Clinic. –LB
Alternatives to in-person care (i.e. phone or Skype) makes it easy for care and service and gives peace-of-mind. Health is something we shouldn’t have to worry about–neither is HOW we can access it. Great customer service! Amber is awesome! I always feel like my needs are well met. Very caring! –LT
My needs were not getting met with Western medicine. My daughter encouraged me to try Dr. Asmar. I feel like I am heard. When I don’t follow the program completely, I don’t feel shamed or blamed. My symptoms have been greatly reduced. –CH
I come because Dr. Asmar is very knowledgeable, knows my history, and consistently goes the extra mile. I feel extremely taken care of. Dr. Asmar is an amazing doctor and is very knowledgeable. She is kind and considerate. I appreciate being known by name and having wonderful conversations with the office staff. –MD
Dr. Asmar gave me the help I needed and hope for a more normal life. Dr. Asmar has been my doctor for six years (or more) and she was very instrumental in keeping me on my feet and helping me overcome some severe health issues we’ve dealt with beyond my autoimmune illness. –PW
It’s the best! I like Dr. Asmar. I’ve been to many naturopaths in Portland and I think that Bambú Clinic is truly one of a kind. Dr. Asmar is always so generous with her advice and knowledge during and between visits. It’s easy to be a patient here. –MC
I received great acupuncture from Beth at Bambu Clinic. She is a very kind and gentle practitioner. Helped me with my morning sickness and explained everything in a way I could understand. Being pregnant, it was really important to me that I felt safe about what she was doing, and I definitely felt confident the entire time. I can’t recommend her highly enough! -A. C.
Beth offers kind, compassionate and expert care. She is truly a gifted acupuncturist, who really listens to what your body needs. Her needling skills are second to none and she is very gentle. -L.B.
Beth’s treatments have helped me regain balance in times of stress and illness, as well as teach me a lot about holistic health as an approach to life. I highly recommend her services to those seeking to improve their immediate and long term well being. -B.P.
Elizabeth has treated me for two different injuries in the past year. I am a dance teacher so it is very important for me to be up and moving again quickly and she made that possible both times! She is a great listener to the patient and the body when it comes to finding out what’s wrong. She is also excellent at explaining things as she does them so you understand your treatment. I would recommend her to both a new patient nervous to try acupuncture (as I was) and someone experienced because she is caring, professional, and very effective! -K.E.
I’ve been seeing Beth Griffing since March of 2011 and have been so impressed that I go to her every week. She is truly a gifted and highly skilled acupuncturist and herbalist. My health has improved tremendously since I began seeing her. I’ve been to a lot of acupuncturists and she is the best, the most thorough, most effective, and she makes it a pleasure to go for a treatment. -T.J.
