She prescribed an otc product. But after I left, I realized she did not completely tell my what my problem was.

May 2017
always a great experience

May 2017
I have been a patient of Dr Potts since 1999 or something like that - a very long time. I love her & she is the best doctor I have ever experienced in my entire life - being 60 years old, that is significant. I am so happy to let you & Dr Potts know that I had the same experience & feeling about Laura. WOW! She is fantastic in every way. I don´t know how long she has been at VM Bellevue, but I´m so glad she is there!

May 2017

Laura is very professional,thoughtful,and I really trust her.

March 2017
Laura Wendzich took the time to carefully document my relevant history and clairify the details as she needed them. She patiently explained what was going to happen during the physical exam itself and was careful to let me know if something might be painful and WHY it needed to happen. Laura Wendzich took time after the history and exam to create a plan with me to get my injury healed quickly so I could return to normal activity WITHOUT re-injuring myself. She answered my questions and addressed my concerns. I never felt rushed. The process for worker´s comp/L&I was a bit overwhelming to me, especially knowing how a bucket load of paperwork had to go to multiple locations. The team made sure they had all the information they needed from me, and knew where all the stuff needed to end up, and made it happen! It was a big relief knowing the team knew how to make it happen.

March 2017
Laura was excellent and very informative.

February 2017
Laura was great. I would see her again.

Laura was outstanding in all areas. I would have believed she was an MD had I not known ahead of time that she was a PAC. Very professional, knowledgeable and understanding.

Dr Laura was nothing short of outstanding. concerned, asked questions, explained treatment options. We would seek her out again.

October 2016
I have loved seeing Laura each time I come in. she is really friendly and doesn´t make me feel uncomfortable about anything. I love that she explains everything as she goes in a way that I can understand. I feel very at ease with Laura.

October 2016
The doctor was pleasant to work with, warm but professional. The visit did feel a little quick/hurried but it didn´t have a negative impact on my overall experience.

September 2016
Laura is a very kind, honest, and sympathetic doctor, she listens to everything and gives me answers so that I can understand! She also keeps incredible records so it is easier to follow what is going on! I like Laura so much I followed her from Kent even though the Kent office is blocks away from my home!!

September 2016
Professional, cool/detached. Calling Laura decreases status, but competent.

On Patients
"I like approaching medicine like a puzzle. Each patient is unique, with different pieces, pictures, and difficulty levels. No matter how challenging a section may seem, I never give up working towards the whole, completed picture. My job is to help patients get all their pieces in place and to create the best picture possible for them regarding their health and happiness.”
