I have seen Dr. Dresang for many years, starting when he was working in the [...]. I followed him to West Seattle Swedish because I couldn't imagine having a better PCP. Dr. Steve is very responsive to any messages or refill requests I send to him. Perhaps the best quality is his genuineness and the care he shows for you. He listens carefully to you and shows sincere for any concerns you may have. I never feel rushed with him. For each annual physical I write a list of concerns, questions, etc. I can hear his words now, "Do you have anything else on your list?" Thanks Dr. Steve for caring about me as a personand not just a patient. You are like family!

The medication I was prescribed had some strong side effects. I wrote a follow-up email about my concerns but was not provided any alternatives to treatment. I felt as though my concerns were simply brushed off. I was essentially told to continue taking the medication despite the side effects. Communication was very poor and my input into my treatment was not valued.

Dr. Dresang agreed to resume care when my intention of having a home birth was not going to work out. He saw me even though it was last minute and he already had a very busy day. He stayed late in order to make sure we had a good plan for a post date labor induction the following day. Never once during my visit did I feel I was an inconvience, just the opposite, I felt like a very valued patient and that he was doing everything possible to help me! I can't think more highly of Dr. Dresang.

He spent most the appointment typing. Didn't feel like he was listening or really examined my back. This my second appoitment with him and I'll see someone else next time. He's nice, but not a good fit for me.
