Seattle Met

The 2016 Seattle Met Top Doctors survey polled doctors, nurses and physician assistants across King, Snohomish, Kitsap and Pierce counties, asking “If you or a loved one needed medical care, whom would you choose?” Voters nominated their peers based on the provider’s level of experience and competency within their specialty, rapport with patients and ability to work effectively with colleagues across specialties to deliver the best care for patients. The top vote recipients were then vetted by the Washington State Department of Health to ensure good standing before being included on the list.

Seattle Magazine

For Seattle Magazine‘s 2016 Top Doctors survey, doctors in the Puget Sound area were asked to which physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants they would send a loved one for medical care. More than 1,000 healthcare professionals participated, with nearly 15,000 nominations. Data collection and evaluation was managed by a local research design and data collection company (GMA Research) and the online survey was managed by a website hosting and development firm (CHCS Internet Development). Several factors determined who appears on this list, including the number of nominations received by each physician, the area of specialty, the total number of physicians practicing in each specialty, the vote distribution, the standing of the candidates, geography, education and residency.

Please call to schedule or speak to a staff member who can help answer questions and schedule an appointment (either virtually, or in person if necessary) as soon as possible.

We are prioritizing visits for the treatment of time sensitive conditions per recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Washington State Department of Health. For the safety of you and other patients, we will be screening everyone before they enter one of our clinics. All providers and employees are also being screened twice daily at all of our locations, in compliance with the latest guidelines

To best protect our patients and staff, all providers you encounter during your visit will now be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks.

We ask that you remain at home if you have a cough and/or fever or if you have been exposed to someone with these symptoms. Please contact your primary care provider immediately if you have any of these symptoms. We ask that adult patients who do not need assistance come into the clinic by themselves to limit visitors.
