Dr. Low is excellent. He gave me hope and confidence. I was privileged to have him as my doctor. I am hopeful to see him again. Dr. Low looks for anyway to help.
Dr. Low put me at ease, answered all my questions, and was completely understandable.
Very good experience.
Dr. Low is very helpful and takes all the time needed to explain things and make sure I understood.
Dr. Low even was able to get a surgeon needed for further treatment to come to his office to converse with me about the surgery.
Dr. Low is professional and friendly. He goes above and beyond with his care and concern. I have great faith in his skills. Dr. Rachel Heneghan (intern) very personable, knowledgeable and made me feel at ease!
Excellent medical staff.
Dr. Low is very confident, which is reassuring. He is also very professional.
Dr. was abrupt & impatient would answer before I finished questions. I felt like he was in a hurry to move on.
Dr.Low - thank you for your kind, concern and professional approach to my care. The resident intern - excellent! Donald E. Low MD.
There are all 5´s, not to be nice but to genuinely rate this care I received -
Dr. Low and Dr. Trottman were the BEST!
Dr. Low and his team are the best doctors ever. Very caring and thorough.
What is "routine" to doctor and ARNP is a first time experience to patient. Although Dr. showed a gentle, caring face and tone, the whole appointment seemed too rushed.
Dr. Low and his residents are exceptional professionals.
I feel very confident with Dr. Low and his staff.
Coming from the Boston area I thought only Mass General could provide the best care. I was wrong. Virginia Mason has exceeded all my expectations. #9. 100%.
I feel that Dr. Low spoke to my spouse - not to me - the patient.
Dr. Low is such a wonderful doctor! So patient & helpful.
Wonderful rapport with this doctor.
Still waiting on response to my questions.
Everything was very good.
Excellent doctor only too busy for me. Never got a good explanation or plan of treatment.
The whole staff at the Virginia Mason Hospital/and clinic is very focused on patient care and helped me throughout my surgery and toward recovery.
