There isn't another M.D. that is as caring and knowledgeable as Dr. Summerfield. I've tried others in the system and none compare to her.

Dr. Summerfield is outstanding. Our time together was compressed and she didn't have time to answer other questions.

I have seem Dr. Summerfield for many years including when living in Lake City. I took the bus to West Seattle to continue seeing her as that is how well she treats me, as does her regular assistant, [...]. I am treated with respect, dignity, patience, and my individual needs are met. it is difficult to find a Dr. with all those qualities. Dr. Summerfield is by far the Dr I have had the best experience with. I trust her with my care.

I was experiencing a minor side effect from a new RX. Dr Summerfield changed my RX, followed up with any possible side effects with the new one. She really has my best interest and comfort in mind at all times. I am really happy with my care, it's the very best that I have experienced in all of my years.

Dr. Summerfield is a great listener. I never feel rushed when I visit. I always have lots of questions because I read a great deal about health. She patiently answers all my concerns.

Dr. Summerfield is very professional but also warm and friendly with a nice sense of humor, which I find very important.

This is less about the care provider than about the nature of an annual physical -- it seems so cursory, I don't see how it could detect more than basic problems. Maybe that's all it's supposed to do (basic blood test, blood pressure, Pap smear), but it seems to me that some potentially serious issues don't have a chance of being detected, [...]

On this visit, provider seemed somewhat distracted and not as attentive as she usually has been. I felt like the visit was just another thing to be taken care of. Note this was my annual physical and with no lab work to refer to, perhaps she didn't have much to comment on. I normally do lab work prior to exam.

Dr Summerfield has been my doctor for 15 years and I will drive the extra miles (as I have moved out of West Seattle) to not have to change

Results of tests taken are very clinical on "My Chart" and that is usually the extent of which I am informed. I haven't a clue what is going on. Then I am described as stubborn when I am not as compliant as doctor believes I should be, or allergies to medication force me to discontinue.

07/14/2015
I really like to communicate through My Charts - I always quickly get a personal response back from Dr. Summerfield when I have a question.
