Diana is the BEST provider I have ever had. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring and attentive. She helped get the bottom of problems I have been having for a long time.

Diana McFarlane is a wonderful PA-C she is very caring and explains things very well. She is a good listener. I would highly recommend to anyone I know.

PAC McFarlane is always friendly and thoroughly evaluates my GI needs trying every avenue and test to figure out why I have these GI issues.

May 2017
I could not have asked for better service

May 2017
PAC Diana Macfarlane has been quite literally the most compassionate and connected doctor I´ve ever had the pleasure to work with. She has taken extra time to educate me about the critical components to my care, as well as respectfully consider and brainstorm any issues I have. After a long struggle of searching for a great doctor to tend to my Crohn´s treatment and long term care, I can safely say that the search was well worth it to find a great physician assistant like Macfarlane/Kozarek. Kudos for such a great team, Virginia Mason very well has saved my life. Bless you all!

May 2017
I have been consistently impressed w/Diana´s concern, support and knowledge. She has dramatically improved my health conditions through thought out suggestions that have been easy to accomplish.

May 2017
I´ve seen Diane twice and I find her ideas and suggestions hopeful. I hope they prove effective in the long run!

May 2017
She and I clashed on how to get treatments. She wanted me to do an expensive procedure I know of and told me it´s not invasive. She told me it could mean my life if I don´t and miss something. I still thought unnecessary and she walked out. I remember now...

May 2017
Care provider was great. She had carefully reviewed my file & previous test results prior to my appointment and was extremely helpful.

April 2017
Answers any and all questions I might have and asks me important questions.

April 2017
I liked that she looked at me, & not just at the computer.

March 2017
McFarlane is one of the best GI providers at Virginia Mason.

Dr. Michael Chiorean, RN-Janie Le, Tech - Casey Brown and Recovery RN: Cheryl Lender - All are awesome people - So was Diana McFarlane (PAC). They all made us feel very comfortable during our time there and it truly made a huge difference!

January 2017
Since becoming Diana´s patient I am continually impressed with her knowledge, concern, planning of treatment and overall support. She is a tremendous liaison between Dr. Kozarek and myself. I believe the quality of my care has improved while working w/Diana.

Diana is very articulate, understanding and knows her stuff!

December 2016
Diane McFarlane was so easy to talk to and with regard to some uncomfortable topics for me. She listened, explained things and set up a great plan. Loved her!

November 2016
When a test performed was denied coverage by my insurance carrier (Group Health) due to the fact pre-authorization was not obtained, Diana became my advocate filing an appeal on my behalf. Ultimately, Group Health reversed the denial and covered the test ($1700) due to medical necessity. I can not thank her enough!!

November 2016
Excellent empathy compassion, listening, and time spent with us - My mother (the patient) and me - Diana is wonderful!

October 2016
This is my third gastro doctor I´ve seen, and by far the best. The team is great and I fully trust they are providing me with the best care possible. I would recommend Dr. Kozarek and Dr. McFarlane to anyone with Crohn´s disease. Thank you so much!
