Thank you to our UW Medicine employees for all your work to improve the health of the public.

Here’s how we’re making a difference in the community:

Patient relations praise

Gratitude and feedback submitted to patient relations.

Harborview Medical Center

“Dr. Jody Waldron is a very caring and compassionate doctor who clearly has my best interests at heart. He shares excellent suggestions, and recommendations for medications that are effective and kind to my body. I appreciate him.”

UW Medical Center – Northwest

“I cannot think of anything to have made anything better. I am grateful that I live so close to a top-rate healthcare institution. And I can’t name one individual over another, because every single person – doctors nurses anesthesiologists tech, – I felt like I was in complete care and their only concern. Thank you, Dr. Yates & team.”

UW Medical Center – Montlake

“A big shout out to Drs. Anne Chapman and Sarah Gartner who couldn’t have been nicer and more professional when I came to the ED in the middle of the night for an extremely painful corneal abrasion. I’m a UW employee and receiving this kind of care gives me tremendous pride in my institution!!”

UW Medicine Primary Care

“Dr. Marina was terrific, as has been the case with all of my care team since I started going UW Ballard. Top Notch, all of them, from the nurses on up!!!”

Valley Medical Center

“Everyone at Valley was kind and explained everything that was happening. I was kept in the loop. My surgeon Dr. L Chou drew a diagram explaining the procedure and talked to my sister after. My nurse Carly was OUTSTANDING! She ensured I was comfortable from the time I got to my room until I was discharged, and she did everything with a smile. The world needs more people like Carly.”
