The Dr was too rushed this day however apologized for the wait, but also rushed out when appointment was over. Appointment itself was good but you could tell she was just too, too busy. She neglected to tell me that I needed to have a urine sample and used the restroom before my labs and couldn´t provide one. But she is an excellent Dr. I have every confidence in her and wouldn´t want to have my care with anyone else.

Dr Adkinson is not my regular doctor, but was able to see me for what seemed a possible medical emergency.

Dr Atkinson is a superb provider. She includes me in my medical care and gives me choices of what I want to do. Which is always the least evasive. Dr. Atkinson has always spoken to me, not down to me or over my head. If she is running late in her appointments I know she is giving her patient before me the best medical care as I know she would give me. I am so very happy coming to Virginia Mason from Providence. The difference is unmeasurable to me. I feel I will finally get my health under control and have a much healthier life being treated at Virginia Mason. I am very close to the Lynnwood office. I appreciate so much that the specialists come to Lynnwood campus. I feel that Virginia Mason really cares for its patients and does what it can to keep us healthy.
