Patient relations praise

Gratitude and feedback submitted to patient relations.

Harborview Medical Center (Inpatient 7E)

“There were many who made my experience better: Adama, Andrew, August, Bethany, Cassie, Chandler, Dave, Dean, Eunice, Gabrielle, Gordon, Hayley, Heather, Joe, Josh, Kaelyn, Kaitlin, Kanavy, Katie, Kim, Kristen, Mark, Marne, Megan, Phillip, Rhonda, Shannon, Stacy & Yaeji. Each of these people cared for me in their own way & in their role. It was unconditional positive regard no matter what was happening in their own lives or elsewhere in the hospital. They each put patients first. The quality, safety & service was excellent. I’m excited to hear another wing is being built that will include some single rooms. For trauma care I needed, there is no other hospital I would choose. I have never seen a higher quality nursing or technical staff anywhere. Kudos to Harborview Med Center for providing a respectful service culture!

UW Medical Center – Northwest (Ambulatory Surgery, Main OR)

“Everyone was kind and professional, from admitting to the surgery. Tyler & Nancy, Adam, and Emilio in the surgery, was very professional, and attentive to my feelings, helping make a stressful time a little easier. Pre surgery Malinda, Sherri were also very nice and comforting.” 

UW Medical Center – Montlake (South Lake Union Diabetes Center, Medical Practice)

Dr. Subramanian made me feel like she really cared about me, not because that’s what she’s paid to do. I felt I had a true advocate fighting for my health concerns. In all my years of seeing health care professionals, she’s the first person to demonstrate that level of compassion and empathy.” 

UW Medicine Primary Care (Woodinville, Medical Practice)

Dr. Chlebowski is very comfortable to talk to. She is very kind and is a good listener. I feel reassured by her expertise and thoroughness.”
