Biography & Education

I believe that good health is a partnership between patient and doctor. It is essential that patients be given good explanations and a clear understanding of their health status, so that they can meaningfully participate in their care.

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.

Excellent Doctor
Swedish Patient

More medical care should be focused on preventative mechanisms to AVOID pharma drugs and increase health
Swedish Patient

Doctor didn't listen to me, was very quick to make a diagnosis and dismissive (perhaps not even aware, for all I could tell) of other possibilities. I probably won't choose him again.
Swedish Patient

I felt rushed in this last of the day appointment. I was not provided the information on the proper equipment needed for my specific pain. I had to find this out from another doctor at the clinic in which I work.
Swedish Patient

I'm happy with the level of care I get from my doctor

Swedish Patient

Dr. Terasaki combines science with compassion. He checks on drug interactions and explains the choices he makes. [...] has dementia, yet he makes every effort to evaluate her health apart from the distractions they come with her memory problems.
Swedish Patient

Yes, I have recommended many of my friends to be on his waiting list to have him as a family doctor primary provider, we (my husband and I ) are very fortunate to be cared by this wonderful, patient, and caring doctor.
Swedish Patient

i have been a patient of Dr. Terasaki for 25 years.... he is incredible, i would not think of going anywhere else if possible to see him.
Swedish Patient

The Dr I saw was a last minute thing and i was seen very late [...]. He was a good Dr but not my primary care.
Swedish Patient

I believe Dr. Teraski is an excellent doctor, however, his hand is tight when managing his schedule, and therefore there is no time for patient to discuss concerns/condition that possibly related to the issue on hand, patient is discouraged to do so and had been informed by doctor to one needs to make another appointment. For any 20-30 minutes scheduled visit, I usually get about 15 minutes from the doctor. For example, during my last wellness visit, getting up to the patient bed was skipped, so was check of patient's eyes, ears, hitting knee, pressing abdomen etc. were skipped.
Swedish Patient

Dr.Terasaki is a fantasic person !!
Swedish Patient

Dr. Terasaki is great. If a patient is not to discuss his/her medical concerns at a physical, the receptionist needs to say so when appointment being made. Patient needs to make 2 appointments back to back. Preventative care is good, but if a patient cannot discuss medical concerns at a physical appointment that is counter productive. To degree they were discussed - and that was discouraged -
