Biography & Education

It's the uniqueness of our West Seattle area, seeing 2nd and 3rd generations of families that makes this clinic just a joy to work in. As physicians, I see our role here as more a guide for our parents, helping them to sort through the myriad of health information available in hopes of equipping them with the knowledge they need to make the best possible decisions concerning the health of their children.

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 felt he was rushing to get to his next patient. I didn't feel comfortable asking my questions because of the way he was responding to me. I'm not against immunizations but because I had questions about them I felt I was being treated like an extremest. I had a really experiance at this last visit. I'm a first time mother and just trying to make the best informed decisions. I also don't know what is normal for babies and am learning myself. What I want in a provider is someone that is compassionate, kind and willing to explain and offer advice.

There is nothing Dr. Scholten could do about this, however, I'd like more one on one time with him on any given appointment. I feel like we are just one of many patients in his day. He is very accomodating but its almost as of he has one foot out of the door when he gets in.
Swedish Patient

We have had great care from *Dr. Scholten for both of our boys for 4 years. At times, he seems rushed or slightly dismissive of our concern but overall we have appreciated his skill & professionalism & his warm presence.
Swedish Patient

Care is good, wait time is poor.
Swedish Patient

Just recommended him to a friend today.

Spoke to my son (almost 3 yrs.) with kindness & respect & won him over quickly (usually he's very shy).
