Doctor Chieh is the best doctor I have ever been to. She saved my eyesight. She is professional but super nice. SHe explains everything and she really listens to me. I have recommended her to several people and I tell many of my friends about my detached retina and how to be aware of signs they may have one. Dr Chieh told me how important it is to get your eyes checked asap if there are issues and I have shared that with family and friends. I am so happy to have her in my life. THANK YOU

January 2017
Although I don´t look forward getting my eyes dilated, I always enjoy my interaction with Janet Chieh. She provides detailed information about my test results, going beyond the surface to make sure that I understand what is going on with my eyes, how results compare to the past and is great about telling me I should do things when needed. She also cheerfully answers all my questions. I am very appreciative to have such a knowledgeable and caring person taking care of my very elongated eyes!

I don´t think there is really much they could do to improve. Some of the treatments I have to have done because of my condition are unpleasant but because of Dr. Chieh and her team´s nature and their skill it is about as good as it can be. I completely trust Dr. Chieh and her team for my eye care.

Keep doing what they are doing. I believe in the capability in Dr. Chieh ability and the training of the staff and their approach to the patient. Excellent.

June 2016
Dr. Chieh is one of the best if not the best doctors I´ve ever seen. I think her team reflects her. She is great at what she does and has a warm, friendly attitude while she does it. She gets the job done and moves on and her team picks up where she leaves off. I am a Project Manager for Boeing and seeing "high performing teams" in action is a thing to behold and at the level of Dr. Chieh´s team is really rare. I think it begins with the leader. I think Dr. Chieh is amazing in every way!

June 2016
DR. Chieh is super!!!

June 2016
Dr. Chieh was obviously having a bad day from before I arrived. Acceptable enough given her usual professional competence. I subscribe to the old Seattle criticism I grew up with that "You go to Swedish if you want ´white glove´ treatment. You go to Virginia Mason if you want the most proficient practitioners in our area and don´t care about their sociability."

June 2016
Dr. Chieh goes above and beyond for her patients. Makes you feel like you are her only care.

June 2016

When a serious problem was discovered, during follow up exam, my physician was able to have a specialist see and treatment my disease immediately! Excellent attention to my health issues.

I did not have to go home and then return to be seen by a specialist. Thank you!

January 2016
I felt the experience was like being in a lineup. Interrupted several times by attending to other patients. "On to the next" attitude.

January 2016
This Opthalamologist and her team have served me for over two years, six times a year, with retinal issues and stablized macular degeneration. They are remarkable friendly, listen carefully, and speak with a level of sophistication that recognized my understanding of the issues, i.e. neither talking down or overly presuming unwarranted background knowledge. They build confidence in their professionalism and skill.
