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.

I have been very happy with the care I have received from Thomas Erdmann. He is very easy to talk with, he explains things very well, I always feel like he will help me when I go in, and that has often not been how I've felt with other providers. I really appreciate Dr. Erdmann and am glad that he's my doctor- and apparently other people feel that way too, because I made an appt with him after reading many good reviews from his patients online.

I highly recommend Dr. Tom Erdmann. He provides care in the old-fashioned way: genuinely concerned, listens carefully, answers questions completely, provides compassion.

Dr. Erdmann is THE prototype of a perfect provider. He is always genuinely friendly, interested in my problem/condition, and explains everything in understandable terms. I never leave his office with questions or concerns. Everything gets addressed. Dr. Erdmann is by far the best provider I have ever had. In fact, I switched to him from one of the clinic's "brand name" doctors, who was just too busy for my taste.

I just can't say enough about the wonderful care I receive from Dr. Thomas Erdmann. He is simply the best. I took a bad fall a few months back, requiring a trip to the ER followed by surgery a few weeks later. I had no idea that Dr. Erdmann would be notified of this incident until my next visit with him. He took the time to send me a supportive message before my surgery to say that I was in good hands and that he would see me soon. It is so evident that he truly cares about his patients. I feel so fortunate to be under his care. Please commend him on my behalf!

Dr. Erdmann does a very good job a trying to make sure you feel like you are not being rushed and you get the care you need. He is very careful and thorough. That does mean that later in the day he tends to be running a little late because it is very unreasonable that he is only allowed by the system to spend 15 minutes with a patient. This is true for any doctor, but he doesn't let it prevent him from providing the care and time each patient needs.

Dr Erdman is not my regular provider and we have not seen each other before. He was much too quick and not very reassuring or through. He should have followed up son afterwards instead of not at all, and also done a lab check to see that might be causing this severe condition instead of trying to avoid antibiotics and guessing it was summer cold. We all need more attention than guessing. I recommend each patient be given a printed sheet with instructions for follow up and recommended actions to be taken even for a cold. These interactions can be greatly improved!

Dr. Erdmann is what keeps me returning to Swedish for care. He has made a difference in my life. He is professional, patient and explains everything in detail, answers all my questions and concerns. Even though I have moved away from West Seattle to Auburn, I make the trip to see him. I am a loyal patient to him. He is fantabulous!!

Dr Erdmann has been my physician for almost 20 years. I started with home when he was in residency. He is an excellent doctor. I wouldn't want to see anyone else.
 

04/16/2015
medicine, in my opinion, has come down to this - impersonal, technocratic, indifferent, methodology of pseudo care about peoples well-being.

I was very happy to meet Dr. Thomas Erdmann and am glad to have him as my new primary care doctor. I really felt that he listened to me and I felt an amount of respect that I don't always experience with health care practitioners. I feel grateful to have found a doctor I like so much after my previous doctor left unexpectedly. [...]
