I have told anyone who would listen about VM

I am very glad to have a sleep doctor at the Lynnwood clinic.
June 2018
I was late but dr. took time out to review medical details. Did not feel rushed.
February 2018
The doctor was very nice, but I felt like he didn´t ask enough questions to try to understand what might be causing my sleep problems. And he didn´t seem to consider any options other than a sleep apnea test. And this may have been the right way to go, but we really didn´t spend much time exploring other courses of action. I was just left feeling like the exam had been incomplete.

Asked questions of me that made me feel anxious and defensive. Stared at me too much. Did not explain enough and gave short answers to my questions for him. Did not relay enough information or knowledge about his field of study to make me feel confident in his care.

When asked how my husband felt about my CPAP, I responded that he often sleeps on the couch because the sound disrupts his sleep. The doctor checked for leaks detected and told me my husband shouldn´t be bothered. There was no further discussion. This is an important issue that needs addressed.

My life is changed for the soo much better because of the care from this DR. He listened and explained everything really well and he really seems to care about me as a patient.
