I've had this doctor for over 10 years and have 100% trust and confidence in his judgement. He treats me with respect and compassion. He makes sure my needs especially when it comes to best was to managing my pain. He is nonjudgmental. He makes sure I am comfortable with our treatment plan. He accommodates my schedule when able and responds within the same day whenever I have a change in condition or question. I couldn't ask for a better Doctor to entrust with my health needs.

I could not ask for a better Primary Care physician than Dr. Szalay. We always have a good cooperative discussion on items. He is quick to respond to any MyChart E-mails I send. He is quick to refer me for additional tests, or to a specialist, if necessary.

Our family feels very lucky to have Dr. Szalay as our provider. We are thankful for his level of compassion, patience, and how he listens carefully to our questions. He makes our whole family feel very comfortable and cared for. He goes above and beyond to provide the best quality of service. We would highly recommend him to other families.

He is easily the best and favorite doctor I've had in my life. I have already told many friends about him and recommend him. Listens to what I say and what my concerns are and directs treatment in a way that I feel like we are a team.

When recently changing insurance the deal breaker was being able to keep Dr Szalay. He is awesome. He not only listens but remembered things from a few years ago. I have always been very impressed with him.

[...] I've never had such an unpleasant experience with a physician- rushed and disinterested from entry into exam room, rude/flippant bedside manner, mixed messages regarding best practices for me moving forward [...] He was ondescending and distracted and I had to ask him to sit down, close the door, and please answer some questions I had re: prognosis. I've had such positive experiences at Swedish but this experience was very negative. I won't see him again [...]

I could not believe it at first when the doctor told me he thought I had a hernia. But he was absolutely right and referred me to a General Surgeon to make sure [...]I got in to a General Surgeon the very next day and lo and behold- it WAS a [...] hernia. Thanks to his accurate diagnosis, I am scheduled for surgery next week to fit it!

Wish we could have discussed potential long term problems a bit more (e.g. what signs should I look for to see if this cold is developing into bronchitis?) [...]

my doctor showed genuine concern for my health, instructed me to email him via MyChart the next day. A nurse responded in a timely manner and I came in for a follow up appointment. The doctor immediately recognized that a specialist was needed and found me a same day appointment at a local specialist's office.

I have from the first been very satisfied with the relatability, expertise, skill and resourcefulness of Dr Szalay. He remembers previous issues and challenges in my life and relates them to current conditions. I have had a few surprising (to me) health experiences, and he has met them with great competence and inspired my enduring confidence.

Dr. Szalay is the reason I choice the insurance and the clinic I use. He provided care in the past then I transferred to a company that only paid for [...]. When I was in a position to choose my own medicare provider I went back to Dr. Szalay and the insurance that was taken at Swedish.

I had initially gone to an urgent care provider, because I injured myself in the middle of a holiday weekend. The other provider didn't listen to observations I made about my injury and hastily dismissed many of my concerns. It was very refreshing to come to this provider, who took the time to pay attention to my observations and addressed the concerns I had.

Dr. Szaly is a great doctor and I will recommend him to relative & friends.
