Dr. Ochs is the best Dermatologist in Seattle. She is compassionate, smart and practices cutting edge medicine.
I have already recommended Dr. Ochs to many others.
Dr. Ochs is a truly incredible physician. She makes me feel like she´s got my health under control with the perfect proportion of bedside manner mixed in.
Dr Ochs is the best provider that I have seen at VM!
Dr. Ochs needs to invest more time in really hearing and listening to patients. She is the BEST dermatologist in the Puget Sound Area (I drive from Olympia to see her), but 10 minutes once every three years just isn´t acceptable.
I really like Dr. Ochs and she puts me at ease with her knowledge & expertise. She asked thoughtful questions about my mitochondrial disease, as she noticed a particular symptom I have about that, which I much appreciate. She made me feel like she´s confident about what she says. My only request would be a little more time with her explaining the skin condition she noted. She spoke quickly and concisely, to where I wasn´t very sure what she was saying about it. Also the Rx explanation wasn´t there, so I didn´t know much about what I was getting or how long exactly to use it. so a little more time there would be nice. But i still love seeing her & trust her care!
I have worked with Dr. Ochs for several years. During that time, I´ve had a variety of skin care needs, including skin cancer diagnosis and Moh´s surgery. I trust Dr. Ochs completely. She is by far the best dermatologist I have ever worked with, and her outcomes on my behalf have been amazing. She is a pleasure personally, and an excellent physician.
I like her very much and feel confident in her knowledge.
Seemed rushed this time and other times I have seen her. Did not ask me anything or explain anything. Left that up to her assistant. I believe she knows what she is doing.
Dr. Ochs speaks very fast, so sometimes it is hard to "hear" what she is saying.
Dr. Ochs is fantastic & I have recommended her repeatedly.
Dr. Ochs has been my dermatologist since she first started working at VM many years ago. She is a fantastic physician and dermatologist!
Dr Ochs has been wonderful in her care & skill for years. I really appreciate her!

Excellent service from this professional physician and staff.
Absolutely LOVE Dr. Ochs. She is the VERY best.
I have much, much more than"very good" confidence in Dr. Ochs. I have total confidence in her.
All of this was specialty care and Dr. Ochs is very knowledgeable and caring.
Too busy and rushed to recommend to others.
Dr. Ochs is always knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. She takes time to answer questions.
Dr. Ochs is very quick & thorough I have COMPLETE confidence & trust in Dr. Ochs - She is exceptional!
Everyone in the clinic seems very rushed. I don´t feel like the medicines I´ve been prescribed were carefully explained.

"I believe every patient is entitled to receive the best medical care. I like to treat my patients as I would like to be treated."
"Cosmetic dermatology is an extremely rewarding field. Minimally invasive procedures, with little or no downtime, are used to help people look and feel their best. New therapies are constantly being researched and developed; it's so exciting to me!"
