I have total confidence in Dr. D. She is very complimentary on my accomplishments (quit smoking last year) and very encouraging for my future health care improvement strategies. Her recommendations and suggestions are very realistic and down to earth. I don't like fad diets or joining a weight loss program, I want to do this on my own and appreciated the tips that she shared with me and they made perfect sense.

The best!!

Provider somewhat condescending, and had little interest in why I did or did not want to take recommended medications/shots. Physical rather basic.

During my apt I liked this provider and was considering changing her to my primary. However, I went through the antibiotics and my symptoms were worse so I called to follow up and left a voicemail on Friday and did not receive a call back. I called again on Monday and was told the message was still in there and I should make an apt if I felt I needed to. I stated that my schedule was very busy and I would appreciate a phone call from a nurse or dr. It is now Wednesday and I have not received a call from anyone. Very disappointing that in order to get follow up care you have to come into the office.

She is wonderful I love my doctor.

I was very pleased with DR. Especially that she took time to follow up with me to make sure I had no questions and let me know about some more options such as PT.

They made you feel you are important to them.

she wanted me to sign up for mychart but did not inform me that she would not be following up. I am disappointed than no one has followed up with me.

I LOVE Dr. Deshpande!!

This was my first visit with this provider. It was for an annual physical - I hadn't had one in several years. She spent no more than 15 minutes with me. She asked a few questions while at the computer, then did a very fast physical exam. The physical exam took maybe 10 minutes. As she was walking to the door, she hesitated, turned to me and asked if I had any questions for her. That type of body language indicated to me that my questions were not important, just an after thought on her part. I didn't feel like she wanted to hear any. I know I have some "maintenance" issues, but she didn't address any of them. I received a paper with a long list of standard, computer generated generic do's and don'ts. It was a very impersonal,, cursory visit.

need more doctors and larger clinic at this location. well utilized but hard to get in as overbooked

I would recommend Dr Despande to anyone

After the appointment, she called me after hours on the following evening. Very impressive.

She seemed to be in a hurry so much that I didn't even manage to ask her a single question [...]. I wanted to ask about my tonsils and pain in the chest, and perhaps get a referral, but the doctor was out as soon as she did the exam and pap smear. I only heard "You're healthy". Moreover, I didn't like the very short reply on MyChart where she followed up with regards to my blood tests results; she said my cholesterol is elevated and I should work on a healthy diet and lifestyle. Period. No further information at all. Very disappointing. Lastly, I've never had a pap smear that'd be so painful as the one she took. [...] I'll certainly never make an appointment with her.

I would recommend Dr. Deshpande but not the clinic.

She followed up with me the following day. Wants to get to the reason I am in so much pain.

[...] Dr. Deshpande is great. I never feel rushed the way I have with some doctors in the past, where I almost feel like I'm on an assembly line. She really takes the time to talk to me and more importantly, listen to me.

The care provider was on top of her game regarding a wellness check up. Because she was unable to fully address a need with an injury - not part of wellness - go figure that - I can't in all fairness judge her for rules imposed upon her. I have issues with the system, not the physician.

I absolutely love Dr. Deshpande, she is easy to talk to and I feel confident expressing my medical concerns with her. She explains things in a way that I can understand and use to improve my overall health. She is very encouraging with my health endeavors. I quit smoking on Jan. 1st and she was very excited and complimentary towards me meeting my 1st Quarter goal for 2016. [...]. Again, she is very supportive of my health efforts and I truly appreciate that about her.

Dr A Deshpande is a caring doctor. I feel fortunate to have her as my provider. I was thinking about leaving Swedish with the loss of my former Dr however Dr. Deshpande filled the gap more than adequately

I didn't have a problem with the Dr. It was that I was told to go see other Dr's and take additional tests [...] I also don't like that NONE of my problems could be addressed in this appointment and that I'd have to schedule a follow up [...]
