If you gave me a choice to respond with "excellent" for Dr. Brzana, I would have given her that in every category.

June 2017
she´s a great doctor excellent bedside manner.

May 2017
Dr. Brzana answered all my questions about new pumps on the market and gave me feedback she´s received from other patients. It was very helpful.

April 2017

April 2017
Think your Dr. Brzana. 10. Any time.

March 2017
Dr. Brzana has provided excellent treatment for my diabetes. I am so glad she visits the Bellevue clinic on a regular basis and have a high degree of confidence in her expertise and the quality of the advice or recommendations she has given me.

March 2017
she is very concerned

March 2017
The Doctor needs to speak louder and more slowly, especially for elderly patients.

March 2017
Dr Brzana, has always been flexible with me in listening to my concerns about my treatment. I tend to do my own research and because of that I bring questions and concerns to her. she helps me understand them from the point of view of the information she has but she is always willing to meet me half way. thank you Dr B.

March 2017
"Very good" doesn´t quite say it, Dr. Brzana is excellent. I´ve been type 1 diabetic for 30 years so I´ve seen more than my share of doctors. Of all the docs I can remember, only one other was as easy to talk to and as informative as Dr. Brzana. She is leaps and bounds above the rest, Virginia Mason is lucky to have her on their team (and so am I!)

March 2017
brzana is great. iv recommend her to others. shes an excellent doctor

March 2017
Dr. Brzana was incredibly helpful. She listened carefully to my concerns, and had great suggestions. The rest of the staff was also great.

February 2017
Dr Brzana is one of the most caring, understanding doctors I have been to over the course of my 50 years including multiple surgeries and cancer treatments. I so very much appreciate her warmth, concern and care for me as an individual I am willing to drive 1.5 hours to seek treatment from her and refer others to her as well

February 2017
every was good for me

February 2017
on a rating 1of 1 to 5 I give Dr Jessica Brzana and Staff a rating100. In fact everything about Virginia Mason is far above anything that I have ever seen.

February 2017
I did not feel rushed. Dr was very thorough and patient.

everything was great

November 2016
I love Dr. Brzana!

October 2016
Dr. Brazana and her nurse Larry make the best team I have complete confidence in both.

October 2016
I have seen two other endrocrinologists. One inside, and one outside of Virginia Mason. None of them can hold a candle to Dr. Brzana. She is competent and compasionate. She gives sound medical advice, not just for the condition she treats, but on other things that could make me feel better. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to her.

October 2016
She used lab reports from another provider, my experience and her knowledge to quickly refer me for more tests on the day of my appointment. She said, I want to do everything I can so you feel better. She is an amazing care giver - emphasis on CARE.

October 2016
The only reason I stay with VM is because of my doctor. I am not an easy patient and she is absolutely wonderful. She has been instrumental in finding a course of treatment for my illness.

October 2016
chance of recommendatio shoot, I´ve already gotten my dad to see Dr.Brzana. if that isn´t trusting the doctor, I don´t know what is!

October 2016
I recommend Dr. Brazana to all of my diabetic friends and family. She clearly truly cares about the health and well being of her patients. I feel like she genuinely listens to me.

September 2016
Dr. Brazana takes her time reviewing my history and explaining new procedures and next steps. I feel confident that she cares and is helping me to be informed.

September 2016
I continue to be very pleased with the care Dr Brzana provides. She is very knowledgeable and communicates very well.

September 2016
Dr. Brzana is just wonderful....she really made sure to explain choices to me and gave me written info to take home

Dr. Brzana is the gold standard of what a doctor should be: empathetic, not condescending, a good listener and very intelligent

Great experience. Br. B. spent more time than I thought she would, to be honest.

August 2016
I am amazed at how EVERY provider and staff member take the time necessary for me. I never feel rushed.

August 2016
Dr. Brazana listened carefully as I gave a patient history spanning 3 years of treatment. I felt like she listened when I talked about what had not worked for me in the past. I appreciated that she emphasized finding the right treatment vs. overtreating my cancer. I will now be seeing her for all of my post-cancer care.

July 2016
Excellent.

July 2016
She is always very helpful and thorough. I trust her.

July 2016
Again, younger physicians and staff tend to talk too fast and not loud enough.

July 2016
Dr. Bzana is one of the best doctors I have ever had the privilege of working with.

June 2016
I love this care provider, Not only able to present information to me but understood my other conditions and restrictions. She seemed to really care about me. She is also beautiful.

June 2016
That was the second time I went to Dr. Brazana, she´s a great doctor.

May 2016
I have referred her several times. I can´t believe how well she listens to me. She spends time making sure I am heard. I love that I have found her.

Dr. Brzana always makes me and my health conditions feel like the top priority. She is a good listener and always provides excellent medical insight.

April 2016
Dr Brzana is great

April 2016
very knowledgeable regarding my condition

March 2016
Very pleased with this provider, and as a result will move my primary care from a family practice doctor at Swedish, back to Dr. Haiashi and Virginia Mason as a result of my appointment and experience with Dr. Branza´s (Endocrinologist), I am sorry to misspell her name, she is an outstanding doctor!!!!

March 2016
Working before in a medical office they did a great job while I was there to make up the mix-up on the date of service- Great doctor and staff there-

March 2016
Dr. Brazana is about the best doctor I have met - She is a total asset! At VM.

February 2016
Dr. Brzana should train other physicians on listening skills and empathy.

January 2016
Dr. Jessica Brzana is by far the most caring and thorough Endocronogolist That I have encountered.

January 2016
Doc understands my issues. Very much a shared treatment plan.

December 2015
Dr. Brzana was an amazing wealth of knowledge, understanding and good information for me during my first visit with her. She listened and addressed my concerns validating my home health care and gave very practical suggestions as to how we will proceed with future care. Very caring and compassionate!

November 2015
I came away from the appt feeling like the Dr. was courteous but not friendly. Told me her opinion while typing notes, barely listened to my concerns still typing notes and was unconcerned about my symptoms and change in quality of life. Seems to encourage status quo and recheck ultra sound in a year. Offers no assistance or solutions. I felt perhaps she prefers to focus on diabetes vs thyroid issues. Will most likely see about seeking second opinion elsewhere unless my GIM has a better suggestion in December 2015. Very disappointed with endocrinology- the rest of my experiences have been stellar at Virgina Mason. Maybe she was reserved due to staff sending out RX for different patient to my pharmacy for me. Idk

November 2015
Dr Brazan has a wonderful bedside manner.

November 2015
I was not in a great mood and frustrated with my health, and the Physician was terrific about listening and responding.

October 2015
I feel Dr. Brazana is an excellent physician, providing 1st class treatment & support for diabetic care issues. I feel very confident about her recommendations advice, etc.

August 2015
She gave excellent information & explanation, I had many questions.

August 2015
Very professional, knowledgeable & helpful!

August 2015
Excellent experience.

July 2015
I was amazed at the time she took with me making sure I understood everything.
