Biography & Education

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.

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.

4.6 out of 5 (88 Ratings, 8 Comments)


I like my provider he makes you feel at ease.
Swedish Patient

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.

Dr. Sytman has exhibited genuine concern for my health and comfort level during exams. He is pleasant and approachable when discussing health information. As a result, health visits are pleasant while still very professional.
