The biggest problem is the time constraints being put on providers, where they feel rushed. 15 minutes is too short a time to provide the best care

Dr. McFarland was excellent! I arrived with my two preschoolers for an urgent treatment of an infected (painful) finger. I was feeling anxious and stressed managing my energetic kids, but Dr. McFarland was personable, kind, and a good listener. He provided lots of information about how it might have happened, what the treatment would be, how I should manage the wound afterwards, and what to do if it worsened. I arrived with very low expectations for an unknown provider, but left feeling well taken care of. Dr. McFarland even suggested that I join MyChart and lowered the barriers to getting it done by suggesting that I use the computer IN the room and suggesting a way to remember the password. Thanks for going the extra mile Doc!

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.

Dr. McFarland does an admirable job considering the poor processes (your IT systems are a mess [...])...and horrid management.

Dr McFarland has been an excellent diagnostician. He is kind, caring and professional. He has been conservative about recommendations and has taken excellent care of me for many years.

I've seen different providers over the years based on availability but always prefer Dr. McFarland. He is the best of the best and consistently makes me feel like he cares about me as a patient.
