Dr. Rothblatt is the best doctor I have ever had!! He takes the time to get to know me and he truly cares about the issues I´m facing. Two years ago I had some lab results that required immediate attention and I will be forever grateful for how he took me in as a new patient, fit me into his schedule, and performed a successful surgery! He spends time with me on each returning visit to make sure nothing is being overlooked and to make sure I have all of my questions answered thoroughly.

I see Dr. Rothblatt and I would NEVER consider seeing anyone else. He is kind, concerned, and knowledgeable. I work at a hospital, not Virginia Mason, where I could get the same services for much, much less. I don´t think I could get the same care and that´s the difference. My health is important to me and I feel like it is important to Dr. Rothblatt as well. This is something that money cannot buy.

I have only good things to say about Dr. Alan Rothblatt. I came to see him on my health problem in December 2016 and I was in distress. Dr. Alan is very kind, very caring and spent time with me without rushing. If not because of him and his care, I would very well be in a depression trying to cope with me disease alone. Dr. Alan skillfully removed my IUD which was embedded inside my tiny uterus. Thanks to his skills, the surgery was done with minimal side effects and hardly any bleeding. Due to my analytical background, I tend to be a skeptical individual - however, I trust Dr. Alan completely. His analysis makes sense and he genuinely cares about his patients.

Dr. Rothblatts care is over and above any physician I have ever had. I have know Dr. Rothblatt for almost 30 years and he´s only gotten better.
January 2017
I think Dr Rothblatt is absolutely wonderful. I especially appreciate how he will come in and talk, before I have to disrobe. He gives each patient a very ample amount of time. My only complaint is that he continually runs late. I do realize that is because he does spend so much time with each patient, as he spends with myself, included.

I wouldn´t want to have anyone else as my doctor. I´ve recommended him to others. He is the best doctor I´ve ever had!
