Dr. Rothblatt is amazing! He is knowledgeable and I trust him. Most of all he is also kind. A rare combination in my experience.

June 2017
I see Dr. Rothblatt and I would NEVER consider seeing anyone else. He is kind, concerned, and knowledgeable. I work at a hospital, not Virginia Mason, where I could get the same services for much, much less. I don´t think I could get the same care and that´s the difference. My health is important to me and I feel like it is important to Dr. Rothblatt as well. This is something that money cannot buy.

June 2017
Dr. Rothblatt & Dr. Wolff are exceptional professionals, it´s a pleasure to be in their care. Their MAs & support staff are always pleasant and professional.

June 2017
Dr. Rothblatt is the first doctor I remember going to who has made me feel valid in my pain and experience. He shows understanding and care and listens to everything I say, never putting a sign or symptom aside. I look forward to our visits. As a premedical student, he is the type of doctor I aspire to be like.

June 2017

March 2017
I have only good things to say about Dr. Alan Rothblatt. I came to see him on my health problem in December 2016 and I was in distress. Dr. Alan is very kind, very caring and spent time with me without rushing. If not because of him and his care, I would very well be in a depression trying to cope with me disease alone. Dr. Alan skillfully removed my IUD which was embedded inside my tiny uterus. Thanks to his skills, the surgery was done with minimal side effects and hardly any bleeding. Due to my analytical background, I tend to be a skeptical individual - however, I trust Dr. Alan completely. His analysis makes sense and he genuinely cares about his patients.

March 2017
I am thoroughly impressed with Dr. Rothblatt!! He´s very knowledgeable and empathetic. I feel very fortunate to have found him!

February 2017
Dr. Rothblatt is an exceptional physician who always takes time to answer questions and appears to genuinely care about me as a patient. Even with the delay in my appointment I will continue to see Dr. Rothblatt and recommend others to him, where appropriate.

February 2017
Dr. Rothblatts care is over and above any physician I have ever had. I have know Dr. Rothblatt for almost 30 years and he´s only gotten better.

January 2017
I think Dr Rothblatt is absolutely wonderful. I especially appreciate how he will come in and talk, before I have to disrobe. He gives each patient a very ample amount of time. My only complaint is that he continually runs late. I do realize that is because he does spend so much time with each patient, as he spends with myself, included.

January 2017
I wouldn´t want to have anyone else as my doctor. I´ve recommended him to others. He is the best doctor I´ve ever had!

Dr. Rothblatt is so kind and caring.. one of the best doctors I´ve ever encountered. Have nothing but great things to say about my experience being under his care.

December 2016
Dr. Rothblatt is fantastic. He clearly cares about me as a patient and never makes me feel rushed when I have questions about a procedure or health. He takes the time to explain everything he recommends and the procedure. I wish all of my practitioners took the time with me as a patient.

December 2016
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Rothblatt. He is easily my favorite doctor, and that means something because I am "mature" and see a lot of doctors. The surgery he performed on me a few years ago has greatly improved my quality of life. He is a great clinician, and his bedside manner is really wonderful. I always leave my appointments knowing something I didn´t before going in. he has really empowered my to manage my own health with confidence.

December 2016
Dr. Rothblatt is AMAZING. He took care of a problem TEN other medical professionals couldn´t figure out. I am so incredibly grateful to have found him.

Would not change anything. The dr. was really great with everything.

October 2016
There´s a difference between going to the doctor, and going to a doctor who genuinely cares for your complete and total well-being and makes you feel like a valued patient. Dr. Rothblatt is an amazing surgeon and manager of my disease treatment and his bedside manner is unparalleled. He is well-known in our Seattle Endometriosis Support Group for being compassionate, an expert in our disease field (which is extremely limited as it is), and for being excellent at managing the ins and outs of this complex disease. I, along with many women in my support group, recommend him often and with high regard. After over a decade of searching for an expert who could handle my disease, I am so thankful to have found him. He is a blessing to women with Endometriosis and I don´t have a single compaint about him or his staff.

October 2016
Dr. Alan is the best

October 2016
I have already recommended him to my family members.

September 2016
Dr. Rothblatt and Dr. Washington were amazing and I´m very pleased with everything they have done for me.

September 2016
Dr. Rothblatt is my favorite healthcare provider. He speaks to me in a way that does not insult my intelligence and legitimately cares about my input and concerns. This is especially important as I have a chronic condition that other doctors have simply told me is "hopeless" or "just the way it is". Those words have never come out of his mouth and he is always willing to look into new therapies and options. He is very welcoming and seems to genuinely care about his patients´ well being. Medications are always offered instead of pushed on me and they are explained very thoroughly. He may be running late, but you never feel rushed in the office. He was even willing to take the time to prepare a list (or at least print one off) of therapists that would be closer to my home than the ones at the Seattle campus of VM. I am confident in Dr. Rothblatt´s abilities, which allows for a very successful doctor-patient relationship. I will see him for my gynecological needs for as long as I possibly can.

September 2016
Dr Rothblatt is an amazing doctor and I am confident and comforted in everything he says. He is a perfectionist and every surgeon should have the bar set by him.

September 2016
Dr. Rothblatt is an excellent provider - He genuinely cares about me as a "whole´ patient. He is considerate of the delicate nature of his patients and has their best interest in mind.

September 2016
Dr. Rothblatt is amazing.

August 2016
I have been on an almost year and a half journey trying to get understanding about my condition and concern for my pain. He not only is extremely knowledgeable but very warm and caring as well. I feel cared about, understood and supported. He is incredible!!

July 2016
I have always been so happy with Dr. Rothblatt and would absolutely recommend him. He gets to know and understand me. We talk through my health and my lifestyle. He generally falls on the conservative side and orders testing even if chances are slight- and while I am not one for unnecessary tests, usually he does it with good reason and because he wants to catch things early. But he´s equally good and not making me worry.

July 2016
The care I get from this provider far exceeds the long wait times - He cares about his patients & provider excellent service every visit.

July 2016
Dr. Alan Rothblatt is exceptional. He listens actively and intently, asks investigative questions that help drill down to the reason for my visit, he answers every question and will makes appropriate recommendations if he is not very familiar with the subject, and is extremely patient and calming. He explains every procedure clearly and never causes any undue pain or discomfort. Dr. Rothblatt´s bedside manner is very respectful, yet warm and easy to talk to - he is truly a kind soul, and the best doctor I know.

July 2016
Dr. Rothblatt is amazing! Only reason I see him at VM. He´s perfect.

April 2016
BEST Doctor Ever!

March 2016
Always so easy to discuss things with Dr. Rothblatt!

March 2016
Dr. Rothblatt has been consistently attentive, knowledgeable, thorough and compassionate in his care. There is joint decision making and he takes the time to address my concerns within the context of the totality of my life, not just the isolated problem for which I made the appointment. Having been his patient for almost 19 years, the level of consistency in his dedication and commitment to patient care is impressive and greatly appreciated. While my overall experience at VM has not been consistently strong, as it depends upon the combination of the staff working that day, it is Dr. Rothblatt´s care that keeps me coming back and willing to tolerate the bad days when the staff is not up to their best. He is a true asset to VM.

March 2016
Dr. Rothblatt is the most caring concerned doctor I have ever had. He takes time to listen and seems to really care about what you have to say.

March 2016
Dr. Rothblatt really puts me at ease. He takes his time explaining every little detail to me in a way that I can understand.

March 2016
All I can say is "Amazing!"

March 2016
Dr. Rothblatt and his team (Kim and Judy) are wonderful and caring and incredibly skilled. I´m there a lot and they make me feel validated and cared for and I feel very lucky to have found them. And because of my praise to my friends several of them now see him!

February 2016
Dr. Rothblatt is the best doctor we ever had. He called me 2x, none of my providers called me before. Excellent in what he does. Caring & make sure we understand.

February 2016
I wish Dr. Rothblatt would be name Doctor of the Year. He is a wonderful provider and I am so fortunate he has helped me navigate my health issues.

January 2016
Very good - I came from Nevada, very helpful and considerate.

January 2016
dr. r is THE best. sometimes, he runs late, but this time he did not. when he does, we, his patients, all know why....he spends the amount of time he feels is necessary each time with me. he also saved my life, BECAUSE HE LISTENED TO AN OFF-HAND COMMENT...he makes me feel comfortable each time, with what could be an ´uncomfortable´ exam...and he is a true PRO. i would never go to anyone else.

January 2016
Dr. Rothblatt is, ´hands down´, the best doctor I have ever had. He is informative, patient, and I have full confidence in his advice/care.
