General Information


Biography
The practice of medicine is truly a labor of love and an awesome responsibility and privilege. I work with each of my patients to identify their unique strengths and challenges. Then, working together as partners, we formulate an individual plan to maintain and improve their health. I am interested in the screening and treatment for common health issues including high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, anxiety, depression and other conditions. I am also passionate about the assessment of risk for heart disease, stroke and cancer. Geriatric care is also something I am interested in.

I started coming to Mercer Island Clinic even though I live in Seattle because of a recommendation I received about Dr. Sytman after my previous PCP retired. The clinic is small and feels like service is more personalized compared to what Minor and James was like in 10 years ago. Dr. Sytman is very thorough in his exams and listens to my concerns. Followup tests are usually ordered after discussion.

[...] exam seems a little light and so many forms. Except for renewing prescriptions I don't see much point to it.

He really makes an effort to stay on schedule & wants any necessary paper work to be filled out before your appointment.

Dr. Paul Sytman is a rare combination of an old fashion family doctor who is seriously concerned with all aspects of my life as they affect my health. He is a competent modern physician, up to date and provides me with reference materials on matters we discussed during the visit.

He took all of my comments and concerns down in the computer, but then got distracted by a phone call from another patient that I overheard and when he came back did not reengage to provide any feedback or work with me to figure out what was wrong or create a care plan at all. He gave me a list of labs and a recommendation for an allergist and shooed me out the door, but did not walk me through any theories or make any plan for follow-up care or an action plan. I feel like I just talked about my symptoms so he could put them into the computer like a receptionist, and not actually act like a doctor and try to solve the problem.
