Dr. McFarland has always discussed any concerns in detail and given me all options available for any concerns I raised. His care, and his staff's care, has always been excellent. On a few occasions he has referred me to other doctor's for specific care and those experiences have always been excellent for me as well.

I realize healthcare is a for profit business, but scheduling patients every 15 minutes demeans the doctor patient relationship. I have been seeing my primary care doctor for 29 years and do not believe he can provide an "excellent" level of treatment within this time limit. I will can not berate his efforts because of Swedish's policies.

I have been a patient of Dr. McFarland for years and he and his staff have always treated me as an individual and listened carefully to any concerns I have had over the years. On occasion he has referred me to specialists and those referrals have always been excellent as well.

When I experienced negative side effects from prescription, I simply sent "My Chart" message to McFarland and he did re-prescribe alternate immediately. He did accommodate my request for "timed release" version of meds prescribed which mitigated negative side effects.

Dr McFarland is the best health care provider I've had. He remembers everything about my medical history (which is SO important in making a patient feel at ease), seems to genuinely care about my physical and mental well being. He's also very knowledgeable, and gives me great information that's always beneficial to my health, even if I don't want to hear it! I know he's extremely busy, but he never makes me feel rushed, and always seems to be present (not rushing, or eager to move onto the next patient).
