She was just the best!

May 2017
All my interactions with Dr Connolly have been courteous and professional. I feel confident and comfortable discussing my health issues with her. The attending staff are always pleasant and professional as well.

May 2017
Very good.

May 2017
The dr. gave me a referral to the hand doctor. I pay to use LA Fitness Center. The dr. suggested I check out Lynnwood pool, a good suggestion but I wondered why I should pay to use 2 places. We did not discuss meds or follow up care. I did have blood done & rec´d. results. My experience may be clouded by my very long wait. I´ll hope for the best next time. Thank you.

I am very happy with Dr. Connolley. This time she examined my feet, told me what she thought and gave the referral for the specialist for confirmation and what ever treatment I end up needing.

March 2017
I found dr connelly to be rude and not very personable. I understand that I got the appointment only an hour before the appointment time, but I found that she didn´t care about what I was saying. She made me feel like I didn´t know my body and that I was being a hypochondriac. I work in the medical field and know information and this severly turned me off to the idea of going to any other provider than my primary. I didn´t feel listened to or even understood since she didn´t do anything that I actually needed to be done since she assumed I was only there for one reason when there was more talking that needed to be done for me to feel like I was fulfilled in this visit.

February 2017
I was so impressed with Dr. Nancy Connoly that I am going to request her as my physician of record. She was knowedgeable, and caring. Both my husband and I were impressed.

February 2017
This was my first appointment with Dr. Connolly as I wanted to establish care with her as my new PCP. When I arrived, the board in the waiting area indicated if the physicians were behind or on time. Dr. Connolly was on time and I was brought back promptly. The assistant mentioned the physician was running behind. I appreciated knowing this and the wait was probably close to 30 minutes; I kept myself busy reading. When Dr. Connolly walked in she was smiling and very welcoming. I liked her immediately. She was extremely attentive as I gave her my medical history. She never rushed my visit to get to her next patient and I realized she probably skipped her lunch hour to accommodate her patients. I was very impressed with her and left feeling she really cared and I was in good hands.

February 2017

Seemed in a bit of a hurry, was trying to catch up some I think

December 2016
Dr. Connolly took a significant amount of time to go over all my issues and provided me with resources to help myself. She is a great doctor and I feel she empowers me to take good care of myself.

November 2016

Dr Connolly is excellent

September 2016
I already recommended Dr Connolly to my husband! I was so impressed with her knowledge, her personability, willingness to really listen and engage with me -- along with sharing sound advice and health resources with me. And--I never felt rushed, which is rare in the medical world these day. Feeling very grateful.

September 2016
The experience was good. I expected a breast exam and more of a complete physical. Heart & chest checked etc. Stool sample taken and not having to mail in.

August 2016
I really like my new dr.

August 2016
I felt I had the full attention of the dr. and any nurses or assistants. All my questions were answered and discussions were good.

August 2016
Dr. Connolly is lovely! VERY easy to talk with great sense of humor, just very "sensible" - is NOT condescending (often a problem when the patient is old)!

August 2016
She is the best!!!

June 2016
So happy Dr. Connely is back from England!!!

June 2016
felt like a number. when expressed my concerns I felt judged. I specifically asked for follow up on two specific conditions and the topic was not brought up again. I´ll have to fin another doctor to get treatment for what I asked about.

June 2016
#7. Good.

May 2016
Dr. Connolly was very considerate and efficient during my visit.

May 2016
Very patient and has excellent listening skills. Like she was trained. Great questions to probe at the care issues.

April 2016
Dr. Nancy Connolly is my favorite doctor I´ve ever had, equal with my previous doctor who was a natropath. She doesn´t make me feel afraid to be open about my more alternative health ideas and seems to embrace some herself, but also tells me what she thinks we should do too.

March 2016
I much appreciate Dr Connolly´s geniality and professionalism.

March 2016
I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Connelly! She is an example of what ALL doctors should be!

February 2016
Wonderful lady always explains what is going on and let you know so you feel comfortable .

February 2016
It´s been my experience with this provider that she spends almost all her time on the computer during visits. It is very annoying to me. I feel she is more interested in getting her ´paperwork´ completed than spending undivided attention with me. I´ve been thinking of changing providers.

January 2016
Amazing doctor. Got me in late in the afternoon. The last appointment of the day

December 2015
I felt like I was being talked down to and I had ask multiple times about a concern I had that never got answered. She was frustrate with many things.

November 2015
Dr. Connolly is awesome. Best doctor I have.

October 2015
Dr. Connelly saved my life.
