Professional Statement
The practice of medicine is truly a labor of love and an awesome responsibility and privilege. I work with each of my patients to identify their unique strengths and challenges. Then, working together as partners, we formulate an individual plan to maintain and improve their health. I am interested in the screening and treatment for common health issues including high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, anxiety, depression and other conditions. I am also passionate about the assessment of risk for heart disease, stroke and cancer. Geriatric care is also something I am interested in.

I know Dr. Sytman to be an extremely conscientious and intelligent person. I suspect things have not gone well in recent visits because of some external factor or factors. I'd still trust Dr. Sytman over many other doctors I've dealt with.

I have complete confidence in Dr. Paul Sytman as he has been my husbands Dr for many years. I will be returning to his office for further blood test later this week. I will also include a list of my medications as well as the supplements I am presently taking. I will expect the Dr to advise me if any of the supplements are considered OK and if not he will let me know at my next appointment on [...]

Dr. Sytman is very good at listening and taking action when requested, but I wish he would be more pro-active in checking medications and further actions based on the physical exam and blood tests, etc

Dr. came in 30-35 min after school visit and stated "I am leaving at 3 p.m." why are you here? I explained that I was getting an annual physical. He said he did not have time. I asked for options and he said he said "Its my practice and I see who I want to see." I don't have time to do a physical today." Then he said it would probably be better if I went to another dr.

I appreciate Dr. Sytman's kindness and medical expertise. He ran lab tests to identify the problem. He communicated well with me through My Chart and ordered the medication that I needed. Thank again, Dr. Sytman.

Did not complete annual check up due to time limitation of visit. Most disappointing. Never happened to me before this check up, ever.

I started coming to Mercer Island Clinic even though I live in Seattle because of a recommendation I received about Dr. Sytman after my previous PCP retired. The clinic is small and feels like service is more personalized compared to what Minor and James was like in 10 years ago. Dr. Sytman is very thorough in his exams and listens to my concerns. Followup tests are usually ordered after discussion.

[...] exam seems a little light and so many forms. Except for renewing prescriptions I don't see much point to it.

This provider is good, but I wonder if I would have a better connection with a woman doctor.

He really makes an effort to stay on schedule & wants any necessary paper work to be filled out before your appointment.
