April 2017
All of the Virginia Mason MD´s, PA´s and therapists I have seen are very good but Dr. Mihalov is very exceptional in every category. I am so grateful to have her "on my team" Her wisdom and judgment have proven to be extremely valuable to me in caring for my health.

April 2017
I´ve been seeing Dr. Mihalov for years and I just love her. I´ve referred many of my friends to her.

April 2017
I was very impressed by the concern and empathy that Dr. Mihalov showed me. I´ve been very fortunate to have good health and quite nervous about any medical procedures. She totally explained everything in a manner that I could understand and worked with me to try an alternative route first before going to a different level.

March 2017
I think she is the best of the best and grateful that she is providing care.

November 2016
Well, the rating scale only goes up to 5, but in the case of Dr Milhalov it should go higher. In my whole 59 (almost) years on this planet, I´ve only experienced 2 doctors that I would be in the EXTREMELY EXCEPTIONAL catagory and Dr Milhalov is one of those. She knows her field, she understands her patients and takes just the right amount of time to make know that she truly cares. Put those three characteristics together for a doctor and you basically get perfection. I feel very lucky to have found her as my GYN. Please, Virginia Mason, take good care of her - I don´t want to lose her!

November 2016

Dr Mihalov is quite simply amazing. So very talented, hears and connects with me, I feel safe, heard, loved and respected with Dr. Mihalov, I am so very happy she is my doctor. It is a hard balance to be a impeccable surgeon, and also have the bedside manner and presence and Dr. Linda is the full package. When she is in the room with me, she is completely there for me, no signs of needing to rush off, very calm, keen to know how I am doing and any concerns i might have.

I am a non-binary trans-masculine person. This was the first time that I have gone for OBGYN care in which I felt like my provider was BOTH knowledgable about my gender identity, and then able to relate their speech and my care to me in a way that I felt respected and validated. Dr. Mihalov is a gem, and I have already recommended her to other transgender folks.
