dr. Laura is awesome, she gave me all necessary information on medication and future plans. It was such a great experience
It felt like she really listened and gave me her undivided attention.
Always a great experience!
When I asked about a medication, Dr. Popko explained about it thoroughly
Dr. Popcorn takes her time, listens thoroughly, and is concerned and empathetic and professional. my husband joined me for my recent appointment and he was also impressed. you feel as though you are in good hands with Dr. Popcorn as well as with entire staff at Virginia Masons. very professional and warm!
Dr. Popko is awesome.
Answered all my questions, explained everything and the different options. Friendly but professional and demonstrated the proper amount of concern. Good follow up afterwards on my questions.
my care provider was very gracious and knowledgeable about my condition. she walked me through my diagnosis and explained it in a way that was easy for me to understand and feel comfortable asking questions
Dr Popko is the best primary care provider me and my wife have ever been too. She is empathetic, logical and communicates at a level that we can understand.
Dr. Popko was friendly and expressed concern. You can see she is a good doctor and kind human being. However, I was disappointing that she had a subtle judgmental tone regarding some of the meds. She could have investigated why I am making the choices I am making instead of judging that I should make a different choice. She offered alternative but did not explore much about my discomfort with the alternatives. She could have made more questions trying to know who I am, what was I seeking from her and what I needed. Her attitude is generally nice and I appreciate her calm demeanor, but it feels almost as if I am not there as a total human being and as if she is only interested in my symptoms and prescribing what is ´right´ according to guidelines. Did not feel she was work with me as a partner in wellness but rather feeling uncomfortable about my choices and avoiding having a conversation that could have helped me and her feel at peace with the choices.
Wonderful experience. I had to change providers because of my new insurance, and VM happened to be the clinic I ended up going to without knowing anything about it, but I feel so blessed that I did because this is a wonderful place with caring staff and a convenient office space. I like that the lab and everything is on one floor and very close by.
My first visit w/Dr. Popko. I was very impressed w/ her knowledge, professionalism/listening skills/calm, friendly demeanor.
First time I visited with Dr. Popko. I found her to be extremely pleasant and thorough.
Dr. Popko was very friendly. My fiance and I just moved to the area and are establishing a PCP for the first time. We hope that Dr. Popko is around for a while. We both enjoyed our visits.
Dr. Popko made my office visit such a smooth and easy process. She listened closely and provided helpful suggestions, and I left with solutions to help resolve my health concerns.
Would like Dr. Laura to be my primary doc after dr. SUHR retires.
Dr. Popko did a great job addressing my issue. My thanks for a job well done!
Dr.Popko was excellant would refer her to anyone of my friends
Dr. Popko is a new doctor for me, and I appreciated the time she took with me. I´m glad to have her as my primary doctor!
everything was fine had stiches removed
Dr Popko was great! On time, good explanation of what was going on and quick appointment.
I really like Laura and her warm and caring ways. It means a lot to me to have a caretaker with these qualities.
this was the first time with this physician, as she is not my PCP. My PCP was full, which was disappointing; but Dr. Popko was great. Very nice and gave great care.
