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've been a patient of dr erdmanns for about 3 years and he's always been efficient in seeing me on time and taking his time to see me and addressing all my concerns within my scheduled time. I recommend him to all my friends and colleagues.

I typically see another PCP in this office - she was out the day I needed to be seen. I have already recommended the provider I saw this date to other residents of W Seattle

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!!

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. [...]

Dr. Erdmann never makes me feel rushed but knowing there is only 10 minutes for the appointment makes me feel like I can't ask him about everything I would like to, and that was true this time.

I trust Dr. Erdmann. He is courteous, kind and good-natured, which helps a lot when going through some health issues. He always explains things simply and has an ability to intuit when I may be questioning something or worried about the plan of care he is suggesting. I have found that Dr. Erdmann always enters the examining room without all the stress of the other visits. I have seen this with other MDs at the clinic and that is not a very good feeling. Dr. Erdmann especially is a great listener. He actually listens and is quite empathetic to whatever halth issues that may be present. In my last few visits, I have started to use the MyChart feature of communicting. Dr. E is really prompt and the e-mails are informative and explanations are clear. He is a great MD and I think fits in well with the west Seattle clinic where the staff is caring and patient.

Dr Erdmann has great communication skills and is also very thoughtful--I always feel confident that he's thinking through what's going on, rather than just applying a cookbook approach.
