My daughter saw Dr. Fleseriu for possible adrenal/pituitary issues. While the overall staff was punctual, wait reasonable, and the fellowship intern friendly, I found Dr. Fleseriu defensive & difficult to talk to. She did state right off a pituitary situation was very likely, but when I pressed her for a more overall picture, she was reluctant & unclear to talk about the possibilities. She instead spent time assuring me of her qualifications and that she would know and became increasingly defensive. The tone was set from the beginning by the fact we were referred by a Naturepath. It was made clear she would see treatment quite differently. She spent more time scaring my daughter about her current protocol from a respected and qualified Naturepath (who REFERRED her to an endocrinologist!) which has kept my daughter at least functional. We are to reduce & remove this protocol then test with her but without ANY support as to how we can keep my daughter functioning. It'll "just be rough."

She and staff were very brusque and hurried. I was discharged from her care without any way to get medicine refills and ended up in the emergency room of her hospital. She had said I no longer needed treatment even though my bloodwork said otherwise. I was without any way to get cortisol. I called her office repeatedly to get a refill of hydrocortisone but they said I was no longer her patient. Do not see her. Go to Seattle or Tacoma.

Dr. Fleseriu is incapable of communicating with normal human beings. She took five minutes to talk with me at each appointment I've had at her office, and during that time rattled off a HUGE amount of information, rife with acronyms I wasn't familiar with, and accordingly I hardly understood a thing. I swear I'm not crazy here. Even my primary care physician is having trouble deciphering her notes about my care. I also do not appreciate that I have been told to increase/change medications via my online chart rather than by phone, and that she initially suggested, IN A CURSORY NOTE ATTACHED TO AN ONLINE NOTICE, that I start back on a medication that gave me severe side effects. That is not something to discuss in an offhand manner, nor in that format. They have also scheduled me for appointments without asking me first. Seriously, I've been TOLD rather than asked when my appointment will be. I am PISSED. I am a human being and I need to be treated as such.

I can't tell you how frustrating its been working with Dr. Fleseriu and her nurse practitioner Chris. I feel like I never get my questions answered and when I ask the Dr a question, she tells me "Im worrying too much". When I was diagnosed with my condition, they told me nothing about it and had to learn about it on the internet. I hate that they never remember who I am or my history and like im just another non important patient. If there was another specialist in the area, I would switch docs. I work in the medical field and know that they are not providing good care. I don't care for Dr. Fleseriu, but her nurse practitioner, Chris Yedinak, is even worse! Chris is rude and has a horrible bed side manner. When my MRI showed a brain tumor, she told me over the internet and just posted the radiology report instead of calling and explaining things to me. Don't go to them unless you have to!

Terrible medical care. I work in the medical field and at times I had to remind her of necessary labs or suggest change of meds. When labs would come back or new meds started to work better, her words were always; remember-"I told you we needed to order lab work" or "see, I knew this new medication would work" .... ???? I think she is loosing it. Lastly, if I ever ask too many questions, she would immediately get defensive.

I want to express sincere and heartfelt thanks to Dr Fleseriu and her team. From the first day Dr Fleseriu met with me my wife and me felt our troubles were over. From presurgery consultation through postsurgery recovery she provided us with comfort and exemplary care. It is hard for me to believe it has been several weeks since my surgery to remove the tumor from my pituitary.

Dr. Fleseriu is very rude- Gets impatient easily,always in a hurry, never returns phone calls. After my first appointment with her, I've had to talk to the nurse practitioner or the receptionist who at times has given me medical advice because she cannot get a hold of either Dr. Fleseriu or the nurse practitioner. Terrible, the worse treatment I've ever received in my life.
