Drs Gilette, Stoehr and Kritzer are top notch!

Every experience I have ever had with Dr. Stoehr and Marika Saarinen have been absolutely fantastic. Both work great as a team, shown a real interest in my well being and have helped me get control of my diabetes.

October 2016
I have a medical background as well and my doctor and I can talk about things in depth and he filled up quickly with a email as promised about a procedure with another professional. I am very happy that his follow through was as promised.

September 2016
He listens - has caring attitude - not afraid - to change Rx - to suit lifestyle - rather than trying to adhere to a regime that doesn´t work.

September 2016
Dr. Stoehr is so knowledgeable, caring and genuine.

September 2016
Dr. Stoehr is amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable and intelligent, but also is extremely compassionate and meters his assessment with understanding how difficult the disease can be to manage. Dr. Stoehr took a look at my pump download and with a few questions, came up with an assessment as to what was going on and how to deal with it. Dr. Stoehr went out of his way to make sure I was being judged about crazy blood sugar numbers, but made sure that we were on the same page and that I was understanding what he was saying. There will be more tweaking along the way - I´m not sure that ever ends, but I have great confidence that Dr. Stoehr will be able to help me figure out what is going on and how to solve the problem. It is extremely rare to find a doctor that is both extremely compassionate and brilliant in his or her field, and who has knowledgeable, kind and caring staff to back him or her up. I feel extremely lucky to have found Dr. Stoehr and his team.

Very good exam for the thyroid...have seen 3 other doctors before for this problem and he is very much like my first doctor. Unfortunately he is in Southern California and retired

July 2016
I honestly feel listened to and cared for as a patient for the first time in years, since joining VM. I have received recommendations on how to proceed with my healthcare in a way that makes me feel informed, in control, and in lock step with my doctor. It´s been a really great experience to date.

June 2016
Dr. Stoehr is the nicest, most caring and maybe the most knowledgeable doctor I have ever had.

June 2016
Something I really enjoy about the Doctors/PA´s/ARNP´s and so on, that I work with now, or have worked with in the past, is that they can all look at my history and know what I need and don´t need. By this I mean, I have been caring for my diabetes for a long time and they talk to me and treat me as if I have been. It is more of a dialogue when I go in for my appointments and not a "directed" conversation. I truly enjoy working with Marika and Jonathan Stoehr. I actually like going into these appointments, almost as if I am visiting friends. :)

On Patients
“In caring for patients, I draw upon my earlier experience as teacher, and as researcher. More than simply making diagnoses and prescribing treatments, I prefer to educate my patients about their medical condition, and to motivate and empower them to be active participants in their medical decision making.”

On Specialty
“One of my greatest sources of enjoyment in endocrinology is the ability to develop long-term relationships with patients, and to personalize their treatment to their particular stage of life, their needs and abilities. I also have a particular interest in diagnostic or treatment dilemmas. I enjoy thinking critically about my patients’ cases, and guiding them through complicated medical decisions.”

On Virginia Mason
“Virginia Mason’s commitment to health care quality stands out among other medical centers.”
