Dr. Alisse Ryan is always calm, patient, and willing to listen and answer questions. She takes the time to hear my concerns and explain things clearly. She also is a very kind person, which is important to me. I´m glad to be her patient.
Dr. Alisse Ryan is an exemplar of what an outstanding physician represents: she is extremely knowledgeable, sympathetic, proficient, friendly, and compassionate. She treats illness, of course, but for me she is also a motivator and guide in wellness. I believe that through her expert interventions and advice, she has extended my life expectancy, and does service for the health care system as well as for me. She is the best doctor I´ve ever had and is the reason I´m a loyal Virginia Mason client.

I need info on hip arthritis and this isn´t her area of expertise. she referred me to a PT.
Dr. Ryan is the best,,,,,,,
dr Ryan could I had been in pain for several days and acknowledged my frustration. she even called to consult the Rheumatologist and ask to have my appointment expedited
First time with Dr. Ryan. Got on top of my situation immediately.
I love Dr. A. Ryan! She is calm, friendly and thorough.
Really like Dr. Ryan.
I am a PH.D with experience in molecular biology. Dr. Ryan discusses things with me at a high level. She is VERY knowledgeable. She is the BEST physician I have ever seen. Dr. Ryan deserves very high praise, and I hope VM does what -ever is necessary to retain her.
I always feel that Dr. Ryan is looking out for ALL my health issues.
We are a team in the purest sense of the word.
Dr. Ryan did an excellent job for me. We had not met before, but she quickly made me feel comfortable and moved smoothly into figuring out what to do next about my knee injury.
I have seen her twice and she has addressed my concerns each time I came in for a visit.
Very friendly, easy to relate to, felt she cared
Dr. Ryan has consistently helped me _____ my health through pro-_____ preventive measures.
I don´t see Dr. Ryan often, but when I do she always makes me feel as if she is glad to see me even if the circumstances are unpleasant (e.g., a bulging disc and extreme back pain). She uses just the right amount of humor in response to my efforts to lighten our conversation, which I appreciate. Getting old and having things deteriorate is a bore and I am glad that she allows me to be glib about it (I have had care providers who chide me for being flippant). Nonetheless, she lets me know when it is time to be serious and when the situation requires me to suck it up and do the hard work without treating me like a child. In reference to the question about the provider using words I can understand, I would like to say that Dr. Ryan never talks down to me, i.e., she uses technical/medical terminology and treats me as a well-educated lay person with some science/medical background. I am grateful that she is younger than I and (I hope) won´t be retiring before I do!
ALways the very best.
My concern is all about the including me in the decisions about my treatment. And the Doctor knows my input and perspective.
Love Dr. Ryan... she´s the best.
I always feel heard by Dr Ryan. She makes sure to talk to me holistically about my health, and not just the reason for the visit that day. I never feel rushed during my appointments, and always receive a high degree of empathy and compassion when I´m in distress.
Dr. Ryan is fantastic & should have a very, very good column! Couldn´t be happier.
I am a relatively new patient to Dr. Ryan and I feel very safe and comfortable with her. This is uncommon for me.
I appreciate Dr Ryan´s positive attitude, compassion and comprehensive care. She put me at ease discussing all my health issues.

Very good time spent with her even look forward to seeing her.
