I've been seeing Dr. Irizarry for going on 10 years now, so we're usually pretty in sync.

Swedish Clinic on Queen Anne feels like visiting the local GP's office in a small town.

I love Dr. Irizarry! He strikes the perfect balance between professional and personable. I really wish I had found out about him a long time ago! My previous Swedish provider was completely lacking in empathy-no a good quality in a doctor. But Dr. Irizarry is patient, kind, listens well and always has good care advice. He is a gem!

Dr Irizarry has a marked tendency to leave during appointments with a definite implication that he will return. A nurse or assistant then returns instead and there is no opportunity afforded for further questions or the raising of any possible new concerns attendant to the visit. In respect of this most recent visit, the ordered test was clear, but did not address the reason for my visit and the issue underlying my visit remained unresolved. The test aside, there was no attempt to examine me for other potential causes of my complaint and I believe that this would have been prudent. Post the test results, there were no suggestions for follow-up and I had to make direct contact to elicit any next steps. The response was a list of specialists and there was no attempt beyond that to address my concerns. I was rather left with the impression that Dr Irizarry had effectively washed his hands of me and this is not the first time that I have felt this way although I have not raised this before.

He's a great guy, but I felt judged and treated as if I was a lost cause and piggy bank for revenue. might be a systemic issue.

[...] I was sent to a second doctor who said the exact same thing. I should have just been sent to the second doctor in the first place.

As usual, the doctor seemed constrained to a fairly short appointment time. Otherwise they were friendly and personable.
