24/04/14 5 5 5 5 Went to Swedish Joint Replacement seminar tonight. Dr. Ratcliffe was the presenter and absolutely fantastic one. Explained everything in layman's term, fun to listen to, answered all questions completely, funny, sincere. Even though I have set a schedule for surgery with another doctor already, I requested for an appointment with him. I may switch. Swedish hospital in Issaquah is like a 4 start hotel. Very impressive.  Respond

11/11/12 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Radcliff for a second opinion, and he has answered all of my questions, and then some.... He explained every step of the way why and how we were doing things to determine the final diagnosis, and to refer me back to my original doctor who all ready suspected the very thing Dr. Radcliff was verifying. He made me feel like I wasn't crazy for thinking the way I did, and for questioning what was going on with me and verifying what I needed to know... He made me feel like I counted, and he took the time to call me to check on my after my procedures... He and his staff are great... as are my original doctors!!

13/08/11 5 3 5 5 I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ratcliffe. I do not mind waiting in the waiting room a few extra minutes if it means I will not feel like I am being rushed through my appointment with questions unanswered. Dr. Ratcliffe takes the time to explain and answer all of your questions. He came recommended by a friend and is an excellent surgeon. I had ACL reconstruction and lateral release and am doing great! I highly recommend this doctor.

12/07/07 3 2 5 5 After many misdiagnosis' over 2 years, we were referred to Dr. who finally had the experience and knowledge to figure out what was wrong. After surgery he was 100% correct even though it couldn't be seen on film. Thanks to him for finally being out of pain and able to play sports again.
