AVS was very helpful and complete with faq for pregnancy. I appreciate the medications safe for common cold section.

Very happy with the staff at Ballard (midwifery), Magnolia (particularly Dr. [...]), and the urgent care in South Lake Union. I've always received excellent care from Swedish.

[...] She was excellent.

I have seen a different midwife in each of my routine check-ups and Megan has been in the bottom two. She did not seem to care about my wishes or birth plan in delivery. Insisted that I have an IV despite the lack of necessity.

Megan has always shown the utmost concern for me and my physical/mental health. She makes me feel safe and calm.

Like all the midwives in this office - my second pregnancy, here for both. Believe this is first time I've met Meghan - and she's a favorite! Excellent experience.

My experience is colored by the difficulty of getting lab results and follow on instructions over the holiday weekend. [...] I had to be aggressive to get my results and run I got conflicting instructions on follow on care. [...] The care was ultimately good but the weekend communication should be improved.

I was absolutely shocked with how kind, friendly, knowledgeable and honest Dr. Dunn was. I'm always apprehensive seeing new providers, but she couldn't have been any nicer. I have never had a medical provider spend as much time with me prior to the exam reviewing my chart, medications, health history and even my silly vitamins I take. I had some questions about [...] and she did not make me feel rushed one bit. She went over both options, and gave her honest account for both. I kept waiting for her to start rushing around or act too busy for my questions and this did not happen at all. I am much more likely to schedule my annual appointments with Dr. Dunn in the future.
