May 2016
Love Dr. Jernberg & all the girls in her office.

April 2016
I drive 1 hr. to come see Dr. Jernberg. She has completely improved my quality of life (after having seen other rheumatologists for my condition). She is CURRENT in her treatment methods, approachable, explains things, I cannot say enough.

April 2016
I wish Dr. Jernberg was my regular provider and not just for me OA and RA. She is a very caring doctor.,

April 2016
Dr. Jernberg in my opinion, is a doctor of rare breed. Her care and compassion towards her patients is outstanding. She has always treated me with kindness and respect. Never making me feel that she was above me and always making me feel that she is always in my corner.

March 2016
She is one of my favorites. Always explains everything to me and suggests other options that might help my condition.

February 2016
I have great confidence in Dr. Jernberg. She has great knowledge, expertise, and takes the time to help me understand my options and my treatment.

February 2016
Dr. Jernberg is very proactive with my care. She listens carefully to any concerns and makes necessary adjustments, gives suggestions,etc. There is always a plan in place and she and her staff always get back with me. She has gone above and beyond working with my insurance company on a medication issue, sent me a note at 8:30 pm about MRI results from that day.I could go on. I feel very well cared for and part of a partnership.

December 2015
I have been very satisfied with all my care at Virginia Mason. You have a very dedicated and professional staff.

December 2015
I think Elizabeth Jernberg is an excellent doctor and I feel fortunate to be able to see her in Federal Way

November 2015
Dr Jernberg is wonderful and so is her staff.

November 2015
I understood that Dr Jernberg was not taking patients. Dr Kadar was leaving VG. The staff in the infusion center recommended Dr. Jernberg and was not aware of her not taking new patients for awhile. I was in need of medical care quickly. I got thru 3 people that finally spoke to her and she agreed to seem me 3 days later. Perfect...she went beyond the call of duty..

October 2015
I drove from downtown Seattle to Federal way to see Dr. Jernberg. I think that says a lot.

August 2015
I LOVE going to this office because everybody is so caring, considerate and helpful.

July 2015

June 2015
Just wish easier to get in to see.
