I met Dr. Worth for the first time under stressful conditions. Although it took a bit of effort to identify and resolve my health issues, she was very helpful and answered all my questions in depth. I trust her completely and would recommend her to others.

August 2017
Both my husband and I are patients of Dr. Worth. We like her so much that despite the fact that we moved from Bainbridge three years ago, we refuse to find another doctor in our area, Olympia. For each visit with Dr. Worth, we travel 2 hours both coming and going to our appointments, a total of 4 hours. However, we like, believe in and trust her so much, we will gladly travel 4 hours to keep her as our doctor. We believe in her completely.

August 2017
Dr. Worth is extremely thorough. She gives her full attention during the appointment and I never feel rushed. She makes sure all questions are answered and that everything is clear on treatments/next steps before leaving.

August 2017
I was rushed through, there was no time for me to lay out all of my concerns and ask for the proper tests.

July 2017
Dr. Worth is an extraordinary care provider, her knowledge and personalized care is unparalleled.

July 2017
Dr. Worth is awesome. it´s really easy to find someone who doesn´t really remember who you are or your background, but she always remembers and she always genuinely seems to care. I´ve had hers my doctor for several years now, she is always listened to what I have to say and takes in account the things I say about how I´m feeling. Instead of telling me I´m wrong about something or using her level of education to correct something I say, she listens and helps me find a way to better my problem. I have never felt belittled by her and I´ve never been embarrassed to talk about personal things which normally I would be. She´s very personable and her whole demeanor is really positive. She´s a great doctor.

July 2017
Dr. Worth is so knowledgeable

July 2017

Have seen Dr. Worth for past 17 years. She is fantastic!

July 2017
Jillian Worth is by far the best physician I have ever had and that includes VM. She´s awesome. I recommend my friends to her whenever appropriate and all my family sees her. She´s the best.

July 2017
Dr. Worth is the greatest. She is the best doctor I´ve ever had. She is smart, caring, willing to learn, and willing to think outside the box. She gives me the impression that she is not happy unless she is successful in providing the absolute best care possible.

July 2017
Well, I would recommend Dr. Worth, but I don´t want her so busy that I can´t get in to see her, so I might be more hesitant to recommend her...

July 2017
I always feel I am well taken care of by Dr. Worth. She seems very thorough to me. She treats me like I´m her "only patient" & remembers everything about me!

June 2017
Dr. Worth is the best!

June 2017
Dr. Worth was excellent. I was seen for two problems and she acted on both efficiently with, I felt, proper care and concern. She had excellent bedside manner as she was excising a problem spot on my chest--kept up a small bit of banter, keeping me calm and steady. I felt I was listened to regarding the problem with my back, and felt reassured that it was not connected to the spot on my chest. I walked out wishing I could transfer my care to her after my present Family Doc retires in January.

June 2017
Although I know Dr. Worth is very busy, she always makes it feel as if I am her only concern. She is professional while being friendly.

June 2017

Got appointment right away. Had several issues to discuss with Dr Worth and we took time to cover all. I feel like they were all addressed and I am confident the treatment is to improve conditions!

June 2017
I have been seeing Dr. Worth for 16 years. She is always caring, loves a challenge in diagnosing, and has treated my family with respect and thoroughness.

June 2017
after years of frustration and pain with many other health physicians Dr. Worth has taken all of my concerns and helped me to build a plan to address them. I´m so happy to say that life has never been so good.

June 2017
Dr Worth has always been very attentive to points I bring up, and I appreciate that greatly, she recommends medications but I´ve never felt "forced" to take them

Dr. Worth is the best doctor on staff, Bainbridge Island, the state of Washington, and even in America, respectfully, she deserves a mentionable honor for her overall performance.

April 2017
I have already told all my friends about the phenomenonal care I received. So happy with the thoughtful questions I was asked by Dr. Worth. Her follow through was amazing. I feel very fortunate to have access to her genius and compassion.

April 2017
She is the best physician that I have ever had. That is saying a lot as I am 73 years old. I hate to recommend her to others because that only makes her more busy and more difficult for me to see her when I need to.

April 2017
Jillian is the Best!!! I have referred many to her!

April 2017
Dr Wirth is my ideal of a doctor--smart, kind, patient, great info and excellent care. A++

April 2017
Dr. Worth is professional, but very approachable with issues. She uses evidence based decision-making, but is pragmatic in applying it to meet pts. needs. I have referred her to other family members who she sees and have trust in her judgement.

April 2017
We may have waited a little longer to see her, but once in the exam room, her attention was focused on us and our needs. Always answers questions.

April 2017

Dr. Worth was knowledgeable and personable. She was recommended by a friend, and I´m very glad I have her as my physician now.

February 2017
I have been with Dr. Jillian Worth since she started at VM. I literally owe my life to her. I became horribly depressed,more than usual and could not stop thinking about checking out.(I couldn´t figure a way out). Jillian set up appts with a psychiatrist who figured out meds and stayed with me through the process. In addition she figured something else out to help me with the overwhelming fatigue I couldn´t escape. I now have a semblance of life again. She has a great capacity to really listen, hear, evaluate and then suggest options in so many medical areas. WE are so lucky to have her in our lives.

February 2017
Jillian Worth is an absolute god send to your clinic. She could not be any more companionate and understanding.

February 2017
Dr. Worth always listens, remembers what we talked about in the past, is encouraging and respects my desire to try non-medicine solutions first. I feel she really respects me and my desire to try alternative approaches when applicable. I really appreciate this.

I suggest you add an excellent category. Dr. Worth´s care for me is excellent, not just very good. Both my husband and I have her as our Doctor. We live in Olympia and drive back to Bainbridge (a 4 hour round trip). to see her

October 2016
Dr. Worth is very smart and knows so much about auto immune disorders. She wants to get another opinion with a doctor that might communicate better with both of us so she is more up to date with what the plan is with my care plan. I am seeing Dr. Balentine in Poulsbo as my rheumatologist at the moment.

August 2016
Best doctor ever!

August 2016
Probably should have given question 10 a very poor rating since I know Dr Worth is extremely busy already and would not want to have her oversubscribed with more new patients (half joking). She is absolutely wonderful and the very best family practitioner we have ever had the pleasure of taking such good care of us.

August 2016
Very easy to converse with.

August 2016

I have seen Jillian Worth for the 15 years she has been in Winslow, BI. She has matured and I have aged-- we´ve done it together. Now I am moving to a Continuing Care Community out of the Virginia Mason sphere. I will miss her greatly.

March 2016
I can´t say enough about Dr. Worth. She has taken the time to care for me, be patient with me, understand me and I have a very complicated health history.

She is an excellent doctor and I would recommend her to anyone. I trust her completely.

February 2016
Dr.Worth is a highly skilled practitioner. Additionally, she is educated and well-versed in all subjects I have discussed with her. She has, in my opinion, a brilliant mind. Dr. Worth represents Virginia Mason as the highest l;evel choice for care that I can make.

February 2016
I am incredibly grateful to have Jillian as my doctor, and my kid´s doctor. She is bright, quick, funny, caring, empathetic, intuitive. Taking my 11 year old son in for severe depression, I was thinking how grateful I am that I knew he/we were in very good hands. This is also true for my 16 year old girls. All of my kids really like Jillian and I can trust their relationship can augment my parenting. My kids don´t gush about all adults :) but all three gush about Jillian. I feel the same with my own care. She should get a rise and promotion :) Living on a small island, everyone knows a lot about care providers. I have never ever heard anything other than "oh, you have Jillian, she´s great". She´s an asset to Bainbridge and VM.

February 2016
Dr. Worth has consistently provided me with excellent care. She is efficient and thorough in covering medical checks and issues. She takes the time to address my concerns and is very prompt in providing email feedback about test results or my questions. Thank you Dr. Worth!

February 2016
I have already recommended her to family and friends. Those who followed up my recommendation are similarly pleased.

February 2016
