Dr. Middleton is an exceptional physician: she reviewed my medical records prior to my visit & was thus aware of my problems, needs & concerns. She provided care treating me as a biopsychosocial being - she was compassionate, kind & caring.

The best doctor I have ever had in my 68 years. So smart, kind, considerate, genuinely concerned for me as a person/patient!

She's great!

Impressed with time & care she took with explanations & care plan.

Dr. Middleton is very supportive, encouraging, caring, understanding and really gets to know what her patients are going through and their progress in recovery of the event!

Dr. Middleton is excellent. She has an obvious passion for her work and it translates as fantastic care.

[...] I'm quite critical of any new doctor in my experience Dr. Kimberly has NO COMPETITION IN SEATTLE I was PLEASANTLY SURPRISED by HER STAFF.

Dr. Middleton is an excellent care provider. She is attentive to my concerns, takes the time with me that is necessary and explains what she is doing and why.

Good, punctual, thorough.
