I have been a patient of Lili Sacks for many years. She is an excellent listener and sensitive to my emotional and physical needs and concerns. I would refer anyone I know to her. If Swedish continues to support physicians like her, I would recommend Swedish in general too.

Dr. Sacks is a good doctor. I feel she listens and tries to think of solutions that work for my situation. She has been concerned and engaged and always discusses potential treatments and ideas with me with respect for my decisions. It can be difficult when many different providers are tossing things that might help at me--I can't do everything they suggest in a day and somethings may help but are too difficult or burdensome to do, like swimming which comes up often. Some docs get upset or feel like I'm making excuses or not trying hard enough if I resist adding some new activity for practical reasons--like 1/2 hour in a public pool would take 3 hours of effort (driving to pool, changing, showering), that I'm a bad swimmer so it's not fun, and swimming hurts my shoulders and neck--and don't look at their suggestions in the context of what I'm already doing (daily low-impact aerobic exercise or strength training). Dr. Sacks doesn't do this--if she has a suggestion for lifestyle changes or medical treatment, she always discusses it with me and takes into account what I'm already doing. She offers practical solutions that are usually geared towards lowering the burden on me and thinks about things I could stop doing so it's not always adding one more thing I "should" do. She's also very good with managing my medication and I always feel comfortable calling her about a new medication or treatment prescribed by a specialist to get her opinion about whether she agrees and to make sure it doesn't interfere with something else I'm doing. She keeps an eye on medication without doing too much tinkering and is willing to take over prescribing from specialists once I've been taking something for a while--this is important for me to simplify getting refills and feeling secure that someone is looking at all of my medications. I definitely feel that Dr. Sacks is my "medical home" and that she's looking after my well being, keeping track of my treatments, advocating on my behalf, and really trying to optimize my quality of life even though there's only so well I have the capacity to be. She does a good job balancing being hopeful about making things better/easier on me and being realistic about what I can manage to do and how much of a difference things will make. She never gets frustrated with me when something doesn't work and admits the limits of what she knows or can do. She has developed a good understanding of how my body works and trust in my experience living with it. All of this makes her a trusted caregiver with whom I feel is willing to learn and make me part of my treatment plan. I feel comfortable discussing my situation holistically with her--including emotional health issues--without being judged or worrying that disclosing new problems, questioning recommendations, asking about/for specific treatments, or sharing my thoughts, knowledge, or research about my conditions or treatments will be received negatively or with skepticism.

[...] I'd like to have my blood and urine tests done before my annual exam so we can discuss my results in person. My husband's provider at [...] does this, and it's very useful! I'd like to have the discussion with my doctor vs. having to get my results on My Chart and research when it means myself. (I pay for the service, so why not be treated to a little more 'customer' service.) [...]

The provider ordered antibiotics from my local pharmacy, which was good, however said that I either had pneumonia or sinus infection. My chest x-rays showed clear, so therefore I had a sinus infection. I'm not sure how that came to be, given I didn't have any sinus issues, no blood was drawn and no cultures were taken. I had the prescription filled, but never took any of the medication.

I recommended my boss at work to see her. My boss has an appointment with her [...].

I left a "concierge" practice and doctor that I have been seeing for at least 20 years. Dr. Sacks came highly recommended to me and she lived up to all that as did my entire first visit from making the appointment to getting lab work. I am so happy that Dr. Sacks was able to fit me into her practice.

It wasn't made clear that the rapid strep test could be incorrect. I found out the following week that another test came back positive and I may have infected others.

Although Dr. Sacks was more than 30 mins. late, she spent a lot of time with me and I appreciated that. No rush. Answered all my questions thoroughly. Hopefully the lateness was a fluke. I was her first appointment of the day.

Dr Sacks has exceptional rapport. I researched top doctors in the King County area when I was needing to find an Internist in the Swedish Healthcare System. I found her credentials impressive. When we met for the first time, Dr. Sacks expressed a warm, genuine demeanor and listened thoughtfully. I will continue seeing Dr. Sacks as long as she stays with the Swedish family. I have referred Dr. Sacks to my family and outside circle of friends. I find her personable, and genuinely caring.

Dr. Saks is the most respectful, approachable and thorough general physician I have ever had. She is an excellent "doctor's doctor" - she respects my knowledge and uses excellent judgement when giving me additional information and advice. She listens attentively and makes connections with past medical history without always needing to refer to notes. She works seamlessly with my other specialist physicians. Once, when I arrived without an appointment and in a confused state, she recognized early signs of anaphylaxis in me as relayed by the receptionist. She walked promptly out to me into the waiting room and immediately began to treat me with proper emergent interventions. Dr. Saks is a physician in whom I readily place my life and wellbeing.
