10/06/14 5 5 5 5 I am a 79-yr-old female; and I have been very happy with one or two previous doctors; but I have never been treated by a better doctor. He is incredibly thoughtful and thorough; and he treats me as if he cares about ME. Is there anything more to ask?  Respond

07/09/11 5 4 5 5 Dr. John has been my primary care physician for over 20 years. I have found him to be a very knowledgeable and caring physician. He always has time to talk about my concerns and clearly discusses any issues I raise. I am grateful to Dr. John and his staff for the way I am treated and the quality of care they provide. I actually look forward to our "visits".

25/10/09 5 5 4 4 Dr. John is one of the best General Practitioners in Seattle. Realize though that he is not a specialist. So he won't have the same depth of knowledge that a specialist has. I go to him for general care or when I don't know the problem. If I think a condition is related to the heart, then I'll just skip the middle man and make an appointment directly with a cardiologist. I'm fortunate that my insurance allows me to do that.

20/08/09 5 4 5 5 Dr. John was my doctor for more than 15 years. He takes the time to listen - and is never dismissive, has a wonderful manner, and always helpful. His nurse Gloria is also great. I was treated in his office and also during several hospitalizations. He was there every morning and evening making sure I was getting the care he prescribed. He works well with other specialists both inside and outside the Polyclinic to coordinate care. He is responsive to phone calls and times when you cannot make it in to the office but need some help or a prescription. Anyone would be lucky to have him as their primary care physician. I am only sorry I moved out of state and can not longer see him. I can only hope that I can find a physician as great as Dr. John in my new state, but I am not holding my breath because they are few and far between. Do not hesitate to choose Dr. John and allow time to develop the doctor patient relationship. Takes some time but well worth the investment. Best wishes.

30/04/08 4 5 5 5 I have be going to Dr. John for over 15 years. He is receptive and sensitive to my needs. He will come to see you if you are hospitalized, which is comforting and helpful with stress during my admittance. He was sensitive to my needs during a period I had no insurance and didn't make me feel like "if you get sick now-to bad, so sad". This is a doctor who can teach by example.  Respond
