Dr. Trigg listens to my questions and gives me good sound advise.

August 2017
Dr. Trigg is a great physician. He is no nonsense... gets to the point! My communication style is the same.. and I love that about him. He is not dramatic.. offers a little sympathy if I am in pain, but what I like him so much is that he gets right to the solution. Thanks.

March 2017
Dr. Trigg is my favorite doctor ever, this is my ninth year of him being my primary care doctor. He always takes the time to hear what´s going on with my health and is very helpful, kind and very professional. All doctors should be as good as Dr. Trigg!

March 2017
Dr. Trigg has always impressed me with his ability to remember me though I imagine he has hundreds of patients. While he must be on a tight schedule I always feel like when he´s in the room that he´s all mine and in no rush. He´s thorough. He´s likable. He´s a good troubleshooter -- gets to the bottom of things pretty fast. I enjoy the level of confidence he has in himself which I know is not inflated. He´s been my doc for 20 years and I´ve never once been unhappy with is approach, manner or ability to take care of me. I did leave him about 15 years ago for two years because we moved out of the area. At that time I sought help from a number of different doctors looking for good care. I had been spoiled by the level of care Virginia Mason and Dr. Trigg had so consistently given me so I returned to him even though it means I drive 45-60 minutes for my appointments.

March 2017
I trust Dr. Trigg.

March 2017
I did not appreciate him laughing when I explained my concerns. It made me feel like my concerns were not valid and that I am making an issue out of something I should know not to make an issue out of. As a patient/person, it is very difficult to know when something should be checked (we keep hearing about early detection) or when something is an overreaction. He made me feel like I was overreacting but then said he could not find fault in my thought process. He did then go through a good examination and explained what he found and how that related to what he knows about my concern and he did give me the option to see specialist (ENT) but did not necessarily recommend it.

March 2017

February 2016
see previous comments (excellent) re: Physician

February 2016
Dr. Trigg was very friendly and personable, but I felt a little bit like he disregarded my thoughts and concerns and stopped listening to me once he´d made up his mind as to what my diagnosis was or wasn´t. I may not be a doctor, but I´m not stupid and know when something is wrong.

February 2016
As ever all very professional

January 2016
Doctor is a good listener & suggested a good pathway for me to embark upon to correct my situation in a suggested timeframe.

Dr. Trigg is one of the best. I appreciate his conservative, common sense approach to my medical problems. He always listens to my self-diagnosis but then goes by what the facts tell him.
