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.

I am a new patient for Dr. Zia, and my appointment with was for an annual pap. However, she determined that I didn't need one because it was within the 3 year window. So instead I opted for a pre-conception visit to discuss a first pregnancy. Our conversation was unhelpful and I am very dissatisfied with the visit. Dr. Zia's sped through a litany of generic advice, consisting mostly of "you're young and healthy, there's nothing to worry about. Take folic acid ... don't worry, relax. It could take up to 1 year. Don't worry, relax." Her demeanor was rushed and off-putting. She did not ask me anything about my medical records, leaving me with the sense that she was trying to move on to other things, and wasn't concerned about my questions or concerns. I didn't learn anything more than what I could find with a basic search on the Internet. I am contemplating a first pregnancy, and I was nervous and didn't know what questions I should be asking. Instead of taking the time to get to know me and talk through this big decision, she gave generic advice without asking a single question, and moved on in about 10 minutes. This appointment was very disappointing.

While Joy Zi was away, I saw two other providers covering for her while she was out. I felt glad I'd chosen her as my OB, even though the other kids were nice too. Since I will be induced, I am 90% sure that Joy Zia will be the one actually delivering as well, so that's nice.

I love Dr. Zia and she makes me extremely comfortable during my visits. I will always come to her while living in Seattle. Although, I think word has gotten out about how amazing she is, because it usually takes about 3 months to get an appointment.

It was a short first visit but this is one of the friendliest and most genuine doctors I've seen in a long time and someone who I actually think would be a really lovely friend. I feel very blessed and confident to have her as my new gynecologist. I just moved to Seattle in December.
