Do self breast exams matter?

September 12, 2012
Self breast exams: to do or not to do? Remember when there were monthly emails you could sign up for to remind you and your friends to do your self breast exams at home? Remember seeing the news anchors talking about their monthly self breast exams in an attempt to remind you to do your breast “due diligence?” What happened to self breast exams and are they still important? Initially, self breast exams were recommended as a screening tool to help early detection of breast cancer. Unfortunately long-term studies have not confirmed that they actually live up to their hype. Two large studies looking at over 200,000 women in both Russia and China didn’t show any difference in breast cancer mortality after 15 years between the women who were ...

What is Telehealth and telemedicine?

March 14, 2012
TeleHealth programs use secure video connections, high definition imaging and other sophisticated technologies to allow specialists at Seattle’s Swedish Medical Center to diagnose and propose treatment options for patients who are not sitting in the same exam room, hospital room or emergency department as the Swedish physician. Advancements in medical technology and online security suggest there are endless opportunities to expand access to care through telehealth. In both urban and rural areas of Washington, transportation issues and physician shortages pose significant challenges for patients who require specialized care. Studies show patients benefit from the improved access to teams of highly qualified physicians that telehealth provides. TeleHealth Assures patients access to care when they need it and when time is critical for diagnosing and treating serious conditions Allows specialist physicians to practice more efficiently while supporting commu...

Are You Up to Date on Your Pap Smear?

March 05, 2012
Recent changes to Pap guidelines may have you wondering when exactly you need to have a pap smear and in turn, how often you really need an annual exam with your gynecologist. Here I’m going to review the new pap guidelines so you can determine if you are up to date! Of course, every patient should check with their physician about what they recommend regarding the timing of cervical cancer screening because some specific populations may have different recommendations. These are just the general guidelines. Pap smears are a screening test for cervical cancer. They have helped decrease the incidence of cervical cancer by more than 50% in the last 30 years. Over the last decade we’ve also begun testing for HPV (or Human Papillomavirus) which is by far the most common cause of abnormal pap smears and cervical cancer. It is an incredibly common sexually transmitted virus that can be spread by genital to genital contact but also oral to genital and manual to genital contact. It has been e...

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 really like Dr. Fuller - however she seems impatient about my questions & like she is rushing me out. Seems to brush my concerns off instead of reassuring me or asking what I need.

My ultrasound results had not arrived at the office and Dr. Fuller made it a point to get them since I had taken time off from work for the appointment. I found that to be very respectful and considerate of my time.

This visit was unusual. While I normally feel listened to and cared for by Dr Fuller, on this visit I felt dismissed in talking about residual pain postpartum. It was not until the exam that she acknowledged my pain was abnormal and should be addressed (or at least monitored).
