Accepting New Patients
Professional Statement
Excellent health is something we all want to achieve and the way to reach this goal is to use teamwork between patients, families, doctors, staff, Swedish, and the community at large. Doctors need to be respectful, listen carefully, and be compassionate. Patients also need us to make safety our first priority and to make treatment recommendations based on scientific evidence to be sure we give the best care possible. If we follow these ideal our patients can fully trust us. I enjoy traveling with my family, walking my dog Charlie, reading mystery novels, and just getting outside in the Pacific Northwest.

I came in with very specific concerns and NONE were addressed. I asked the same Q's over and over and was told "Yea, I don't know". The provider asked if I wanted blood drawn... I'm the one who doesn't know as I'm not the one with the M.D.

I spent a $20 co pay for an unnecessary visit. we could have taken care of this by phone or email. Which is why I sent a message to her via my chart.

I had several concerns that I wanted to discuss with my provider during my annual physical exam, but after a certain amount of time she looked at her watch and said that I would need to make another appointment to come back for additional questions because she was starting to run behind. She was too quick to recommend me to see a specialist instead of talking to her about a general/non urgent concern/issue. (i.e. go see a dermatologist regarding concerns about hair/skin instead of talking to me about possible options)

I visited the Dr. Chao in order to get advice on how to remain active and treat pain in my right hip while I'm awaiting joint replacement. She spotted a potentially deadly contraindication between two of my rx's and recommended a specific weaning protocol for the [...]. I was/am supportive of the recommendation and was happy to comply. However, that left only a short amount of time to discuss exercises I could do to stay in shape and prepare my body for the surgery.
