Also got us in early and were very quick and efficient getting us out, which really mattered as we had to hit the road and drive 2.5 hours.

March 2016
Dr. Ochs is very efficient but very fast. I should have written down what my little cyst on my lip was. I was wondering if there was any literature for what I had.

February 2016
Dr. Ochs is the best Dermatologist in Seattle. She is compassionate, smart and practices cutting edge medicine.

February 2016
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.

February 2016
Dr Ochs is the best provider that I have seen at VM!

January 2016
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.

January 2016
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!

January 2016
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.

January 2016
I like her very much and feel confident in her knowledge.

January 2016
very good.

January 2016
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.

January 2016
Dr. Ochs speaks very fast, so sometimes it is hard to "hear" what she is saying.
