Patient relations praise

Gratitude and feedback submitted to patient relations.

Harborview Medical Center (Emergency Department)

Karen Amin, MSN, helped me during my visit – she was amazing! She listened and took good care of me! Thank you so much!” 

UW Medical Center – Northwest (Ambulatory Surgery)

 “Kimberly was great. Loved her personality and all her efforts to explain things and make me comfortable. Dr. White was very professional. He listened carefully to my questions, made me feel relaxed with the procedure.” 

UW Medical Center – Montlake (Inpatient 4NE)

“Nurses Jon, Sydney, Liz and Katie were absolutely wonderful. They worked hard and have an extremely positive nature. I truly am grateful for their care. My Pre-Op and Operating room nurses were equally positive, kind and hard working. Every hospital staff/ employee was gracious, kind and caring. Thank you for the great care and wonderful care that you provide!” 

UW Medicine Primary Care (Medical Practice, Northgate)

“My husband and I have been long term patients of Dr Jaffy. He always is aware and up to date with visits we’ve made with other providers-including outside UW. Dr Jaffy always listens closely and and [sic] always breaks difficult medical terms so they are understandable. We live about 70 miles from Northgate and really don’t want to separate from Dr Jaffy – he’s the best!” 

Valley Medical Center (General)

“I have been impressed with every single contact within Valley Medical in the best way. I trust I am exactly where I need to be, and every caregiver starting with Dr. Arora & staff, right down to cafeteria attendants and of course the beautiful nurses – only reinforce my conviction. If ya gotta have a dismal cancer diagnosis & prognosis this is the place to get treatment!”
