My daughter had recommended Dr. Pattison and I was very pleased with her. She informs you and educates you which I really appreciate. I have never felt rush or cut off. A very professional physican and I would recommend her just like my daughter has.
I feel fortunate having access to this excellent medical care.
Dr. Pattison is very knowledgeable about most issues, and explains any of her suggestions in a clear and informative manner. She is open to my questions and deals with my occasional stubbornness in a patient way.
Dr Pattison has been my PCP for almost 30 years. She is very down-to-earth, matter-of-fact, but still very friendly and approachable. I seriously don´t know what I´ll do when she retires.
dr. Pattinson is consistently kind and caring.
I feel comfortable and confident with this physician.
Dr. Pattison is tops.
excellent, caring physician
My only "complaint" on this visit was that I felt a bit rushed. Dr. P. didn´t give me time to ask questions and I think it was because this was my first check-up since starting Medicare. But still! I have been her patient for several years & never felt rushed before.
Dr. Julie Pattison has been our provider since the beginning of her practice at VMC. We so appreciate her effort to help us in preventive care rather than waiting for problems that have to corrected/cured. We have great respect and confidence in Dr. Julie.
Dr. Pattison is clear in her explanations and does not use patronizing language. She responds to all my concerns and offers treatment suggestions but allows me to make my own decisions.
Dr Pattison has been my Dr for years and I am very satisfied with my care and treatment.
No complaints at all, and so far I really like Dr. Pattison. I´m a nervous talker, and she was very good at grabbing the relevant bits and giving me the information I needed. Not everything above applies, as it was a ´new patient´ visit, and I was referred to a specialist for something that still needs to be diagnosed.
LOVE Dr. Pattison!
I had emailed mid-morning about a UTI that I was desperate to get antibiotics for.......within a few hours, the assistant had contacted me to offer me a 5 PM appt - which I realize is later that physicians normally take add on appts - so Dr. Pattison´s willingness to stay and see me (even though I was running about 10 minutes late to get to the appt) was wonderful.
I´VE BEEN GOING TO DR. PATTISON FOR MANY YEARS AND I FEEL SHE´S SAVED MY L IFE TWICE WITH THE DISCOVERY OF A LUMP IN MY BREAST AND MY HEART THAT "SOUNDED FUNNY". WOULDN´T TRADE HER!
She is an excellent care giver! She´s the reason I continue to go to VM!
Thank you SO MUCH for allowing my doctor to spend more time with me during my annual physical! You streamlined the intake process with helpful forms that allowed me to think about and prioritize MY issues. That plus more actual time with the doctor made for a calm and focused meeting without frazzling me. This is a HUGE improvement!!!
Diagnosed quickly with a lot of confidence.
She is very professional, yet explains things in an understanding manner.
Very efficient and caring.
Dr. Pattison answered all my questions and spent as much time as I needed throughout the appointment. She´s great.
Dr. Pattison is outstanding.....possibly the most focused, clear and thorough GM (or internist, or whatever it´s called) I´ve ever had.....and I´m 67.
Dr. Pattison is an outstanding doctor. Listens and explains. I particularly trust her professional knowledge and advice.
Dr. Pattison is excellent. She always keeps up with the science of her profession. This is why I have trusted her for more than twenty years.
Dr Pattinson is awesome. She understands my needs and deals with them top notch. I hope she never retires!
I felt comfortable with Dr. Pattison. She assured me that my symptoms were normal for IBS, and recommended that I call for another appointment, if necessary.
I was VERY impressed with how things have changed. For my last annual visits we were only allowed 20 minutes which made for a stressful and uncomfortable visit for me and my doctor. This year I felt like I was a member of the concierge program! This was my first visit falling under the Medicare program along with my supplemental so the exam was more extensive which was interesting. I love the email system to contact my doctor--very effective and a great way to communicate and get test results. Saves everyone time--especially her valuable time.
I love my doctor. I feel like she knows me and that I matter to her. She listens to my concerns and I feel like I could tell her anything and she would help me. I trust her.
DR. PATTISON HAS MY UTMOST CONFIDENCE. WOULDN´T TRADE HER FOR ANYONE
Dr. Pattison is always a joy to see and practices excellent evidence-based medicine! I feel fortunate to have her as my provider.
great experience. I have had this great provider for 18 years now. and I have always been completely satisfied! !!
Dr. Pattison is a knowledgeable, wise, empathetic, and thorough care giver. She is the best PCP I have ever experienced. I have recommended Dr. Pattison to three people and they too, are in awe of her and appreciate her excellent care.
Dr. Pattison is consistently professional, patient and highly communicative. Attentive to detail and able to speak directly and clearly about issues, good at helping me better define my concerns and offering advice, suggestions and solutions. I have been her patient for decades and appreciate her interest in my overall physical and emotional health - looking at holistic needs.
Dr. Pattison has always been very thorough with any questions I have. She is responsive and makes sure I have the care necessary in a timely manner.
Dr. Pattison is a consummate professional with that (sometimes rare-in-health-care) amazing ability to demonstrate her very human and caring side. She has my total confidence. She also provided outstanding care for my elderly mother, and quickly gained the trust of both of us. I am so lucky to have her as my primary care physician.
I needed to see someone in Internal Medicine on short notice to get an OK for oral surgery on a Monday morning. When the dentist´s office called on Friday afternoon to confirm the appointment and found out I had been recently hospitalized, they wanted my primary care physician´s approval before they would go ahead with the oral surgery (extraction). My primary care physician was on vacation and we were able to get a Saturday appointment with Dr. Pattison, who had never seen me before. She reviewed my records and took into account every treatment that I had recently received and the input of every physician I had recently seen and provided her recommendation to the oral surgeon so it was in his office by opening time on Monday morning. I genuinely appreciate her thoroughness and sense of urgency in taking care of me on such a tight schedule.
Dr. Pattison was very thorough in her questioning and explanations. She has an excellent and reassuring manner.
Dr. Julie Pattison is the best. I recommend her regularly, as she is the epitome of what a Primary Care doc should be. She provides efficient care and is always pleasant, engaged and helpful. I feel like she is a partner in my healthcare.
I am a new patient of Dr. Pattison but have been a patient at VMMC for since 1974. I was sorry to see Dr Dipboye depart (my former physician) but I am more than pleased with the continued quality of care I am now receiving from Dr. Pattison.
Dr. Pattison and I have a long good relationship.
Excellent care and information given by Dr. Pattison. Am extremely pleased that she is my primary physician.
terrible listener, showed minimal concern for chronic problem
DR. JULIE PATTISON HAS BEEN MY PCP FOR MANY YEARS AND I WOULDN´T TRADE HER FOR ANYONE!!!!
I have trust and confidence in Dr. Pattison, thus 3 members of my family have seen or see her.
I have been with Julie Pattison since the early 1990´s. If I could give her a 10+ rating I would. When I lived in Boise for 2 years, I would still arrange my primary care visits with her when I came home to WA for a visit. I currently live in Skagit County but get all my health care at VM-Seattle.
Dr. Pattison is an outstanding person and clinician.
Dr Pattison has been my primary care provider for over a decade and has always done a great job to explain what is going on and help find solutions that are good for me.
Dr. Julie Pattison is an excellent provider in all respects. I do have to comment, however, that the 20 minute session directive somehow does underlie our meetings. Although I do get everything answered, there is a subtle sense of rush. Not her fault, I believe, but the need for "efficiency" that seems to be built in.
Dr. Pattison has been my PCP for over 20 years - She´s the best!
years ago I recommended this provider to family members and they got in with this provider,and are still patients of hers now,they really like her.
I mean, I don´t know jack about medical stuff and it had been 8 years since my last visit but this was a good one. I felt satisfied with my visit and had no problems with any of the information provided.
Ive been seeing Dr. Pattison for years and I have ultimate confidence in her abilities and her treatment of my health conditions. I´m somewhat of a nervous patient, and she is excellent at putting me at ease. Her bedside manner is calm and assuring, which I really appreciate. I very much appreciate her Dr./Pt style and I can´t say enough about her care. I would highly recommend her as a provider. She´s the best!
It´s nice to have a doctor that is truly interested in how you feel and your progress
Dr. Pattison is expected to do so much in the time allotted. We moved really quickly.
Dr. Pattison is always so pleasant and a pleasure to visit.
My provider is one of the best I had.
Julie Pattison is the best!!! After 30 years, the confidence I have in her is unmatched. She is always up on latest info and addresses any concerns that I have. She knows my family and has always been there for me!
very professional and through but I felt like she couldn´t wait to get out the door when exam completed.
I feel - believe - if I do the things she tells me I will be as healthy as I can. She knows what she is talking about.
Julie Pattison has been my pcp for over 20 years. She is a great diagnostician and a warm compassionate Doctor. I feel like she knows me and all my health experiences over this long time
Dr. Pattison was able to help me get control of a rash on my neck. I had been unable to get this cleaned up prior to seeing her, now. It´s almost gone, following her direction.
