Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Duke is hands-down one of the most compassionate, insightful, attentive, thorough, nonjudgmental and resourceful PCPs I have ever met. I thank my lucky stars I found her. Not only that, but she's a brilliant provider and I trust her completely. I also see her interactions with the staff around her and regardless of role, she treats everyone as if they are her professional equal. Her response time to any email inquiries I have, or questions are remarkably fast. Her aptitude with the EMR during my visit is fluid and I never feel like the technology is more present than she is. She's such a huge asset to Swedish, and I hope she knows how appreciated she is.

Dr. Duke is the best!

I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Rebecca Duke every time I see her. I recommend her to every friend that has ever mentioned needing to find a primary care provider. She has my trust, and I appreciate the thoroughness, empathy, partnership she shows me in my healthcare.

Dr Duke is a brilliant clinician. She understands the patient experience as a whole and anticipates what the patient needs both within her practice and outside of it. She's quick to research anything she's not familiar with, isn't clear on or concerned about. She remembers to follow up on suggestions, recommendations and does it quickly. She treats her patients with both dignity and respect. Because of Dr. Duke's outstanding qualities I have the utmost confidence in her and feel so fortunate to call her my physician. Thank you for your wonderful years of service, Dr. Duke. I always feel like a partner in my care with you. You have never let me down.

Dr. Duke was my provider for quite some time. I left Seattle for 5 years, and upon returning sought her out. I am glad I was able to rejoin her caseload [...].

I think Dr. Duke is one of the best physicians I've ever had.

dr. Duke is one of the best. by far. my health care past is fairly comes, but she knows it w-o prompting or hesitation or being co descending.

Dr. Duke is the best!

[...] She does the hard work of getting to the bottom of health issues and works with you until they are resolved. I am very grateful to Dr. Duke and her dedicated team for helping me stay healthy!

I have already referred several friends and family to Dr. Duke.

Dr. Duke's care has always been stellar.

I have seen Dr. Duke for about 15 years. I am very happy with my care from her. I will continue to keep her as my care provider as long I can. I have also brought my 2-year-old daughter to Dr. Duke since her birth. Dr. Duke is caring, listens well, and includes me in decisions and respects my decisions.

Dr. Duke helped me make a decision regarding birth control by patiently explaining the options and answering my questions thoroughly. [...] Every time I see Dr. Duke, I feel that this is a doctor who enjoys being a doctor.

Dr. Rebecca Duke is efficient, professional, warm, to the point, and very comforting. She listens carefully, answers questions clearly and gives me a sense of confidence I haven't felt in a family physician in a long while. There is no time wasted in my visits to Swedish and Dr. Duke, and yet all of my questions/concerns have been dealt with before I leave--and the follow-up from the Swedish medical staff is excellent. I feel both fortunate and comfortable to have found the kind of medical care Swedish and Dr. Duke provide. Thank you!

I really think Dr. Duke is an excellent provider. She always takes the time to really listen to what I have to say and has true concern for her patients.

I always recommend Dr duke

Dr. Duke is the finest doctor I have had, and that's saying a lot. She is the best in every way.

Dr. Duke has always been a fantastic doctor, that is why I stick with her. I had mentioned as a side bar at the end of our last appointment a symptom I was having and as it turns out it was kind of a big deal, she asked me to switch a medication, which I would never thought would have been the cause and it turns out she was correct. I switched the medication, although I was unsure in the moment, within 3 days the symptoms went away. Viola! I was so completely impressed! She has always been a great listener and diagnostic. [...]

She demonstrated a fine balance between workload (I would imagine a great many patients were seen that day) and taking care to address my concerns/questions. She is professional without being cold and genuinely seems to care about her patient's health and well-being.

Dr. Duke is an exceptional human being and doctor. I feel very grateful and appreciative to have her as my go to for help, support, and routine exams.

when I moved to Seattle, I chose Swedish Medical Group because it was close to work. I never knew Dr. Duke or had someone recommend her. it was purely by chance--I called up the office and she was accepting new patients. Over the years, I've come to recognize this choice that was made for me as a real blessing. A blessing of finding a competent and caring doctor. There are few that equal Dr. Duke in this world.

I have never had a doctor with the intelligence, patience, compassion and empathy that Dr. Duke has. I truly feel like she is a partner in my care. I can't say enough good things about her and I am lucky to have her.

Best GP ever.

I have to say Dr. Duke has been the best Doctor I have had since [...] Left. I don't know what I would do if she left as well.

Dr Duke has spent extra time researching my condition and making referrals. She caught a problem other doctors missed! She makes resources available to me. She is a remarkable and dedicated doctor! [...] RN is also helpful and kind!

all good.

My whole family Loves Dr. Duke and I would recommend anyone to see her, shes the best.

I've been very impressed with the treatment and care I've received from Dr. Duke. She is always ready to listen to any concerns, is interested to support any self-care or alternative treatments available, and has always provided excellent treatment and explanations so I fully comprehend the issues going forward.

Dr. Duke is fantastic. She makes me feel very comfortable. She explains everything in layman's terms and she is just so nice. I recommend her to my friends. I don't enjoy going to see the doctor, but I know I will be taken care of compassionately and efficiently with Dr. Duke.

Place runs like an well oiled machine. Outstanding!
