This Team Gets A Thumbs UP From Me !

May 2017
Dr. Kaine is really great. Takes time to listen & follows up well.

May 2017
I always recommend Dr. Kaine when anyone is looking for a primary care doctor. He is honestly the best doctor I have ever had for my physicals and any other needs I have. He is always understanding and a very realistic and down to earth care provider. I am always very comfortable and confident with everything he does. Even when I have had what I thought to be a more serious issue in the past. He thoroughly checked me and gave me a list of what it could be. He didn´t wait for lab results to give care and treated me for the easiest thing on the list that would not negatively impact me from the care. It ended up being the issue and my lab results came back fine, but thanks to Dr. Kaine my abdominal discomfort was handled very quickly.

May 2017
Dr Kaine, is always kind and considerate. Always going above and beyond with his care. He will continue to care for my family even without Virginia Mason insurance... he´s worth it!!

Dr. Kaine is a very skilled communicator. I had seen him several years ago and he remembered a concern I had at that time. We discussed several issues important to my health. I was very impressed with Dr. Kaine.

February 2017
Dr. Kaine has been my PCP for 4+ years, and over the past few years my health has thrown some curve balls. Dr. Kaine always makes me feel so cared for - it could be months between my appointments and he always remembers my (now) extensive medical history and is always confident in what my next steps should be. Dr. Kaine does an excellent job of communicating professionally and in a way I feel like I am being cared for.

October 2016
I spent a long time (over a year) looking for a new PCP after the provider I had seen for many years changed her practice, and it was no longer a good fit for me.

Dr. Kaine was phenomenal! He was a great listener and even though it was my first visit with him, he made me feel really comfortable.

I have already recommended him to another former DiAngi patient.

Dr. Lars Kaine is the best doctor I have had to date. He is thorough with everything he does and he gets right to making sure my needs are met. He never seems rushed and always puts my concerns first.

May 2016
I appreciate Dr Kaine. He was excellent in all of the above. in addition, he invited the social worke to talk with me. It was great resource-my father passed which has been difficult. I appreciated all the support at the visit. I felt better and realize it´ll take time.

May 2016
Already have recommended Dr Kaine

May 2016
Lars was extremely kind, caring and yet professional. The perfect combinations of each, in my view. I have been so spoiled by Dr. Heidi Rogers exceptional care I was pleasantly surprised and relieved to have the Dr. helping in her absence be exceptional as well.... :)

March 2016
Can´t say enough good things about Dr. Kaine - Happy to have him as my doctor

March 2016
Even though my care provider listens to me and talks about my concerns, my care provider always seems like they are in a hurry.

February 2016
i honestly think that Lars is the best PCP I have ever had. This was our first meeting but I was incredibly impressed.

February 2016
Very good overall - just the medication and home care instructions could have been more clear. I was told to have ibuprofen and wrap the blister in gauze if it pops, but wasn´t told how much, how often and how to pop the blisters. I figured those out on WebMD.

February 2016
As mentioned, Dr. Kaine is one of our favorite providers at VM. Since Dr. Morrison is our PCP, we only see Dr. Kaine when there is a more acute concern. He is very kind, caring, engaging, has a good sense of humor and is a wonderful physician. I trust him with my health care needs and those of my 3 sons, ages 15, 11, and 9. We have great respect and gratitude for what he does for us and the community.

January 2016
Dr. Kaine is just wonderful. Easy to talk with, open and very clear communicator. I think he´s fabulous.

He is a great doctor, not only his skills but also his personality.

December 2015
Would never change the provider!

December 2015
Dr. Kaine is excellent.

December 2015
Of all of the doctors I have visited at the Kirkland clinic Dr Kaine has been the best. I felt he took more time to listen to my concerns, talk with me about my history and care options.

December 2015
I have used Virginia Mason care providers since ~1978 (yes; 37 years) except for certain brief times when for some reason my health insurance did not cover VM doctors (e.g., I had a Group Health Plan at one point in time whose network only covered GH Doctors).

November 2015
Dr. Kaine spent more time with me than any doctor I have had recently. He listens intently and shows he truly cares about his patients. He answered every question and was frank about my health. He also follows up with answers to your questions online. I appreciate Dr. Kaine and would recommend him highly.

November 2015
Have already recommended to someone

October 2015
I tell everyone I know about VM Kirkland. I love them. :)

October 2015
I trust no one other than Dr. Kaine @ UM.

September 2015
Never problems. All very helpful - great clinic.

August 2015
Very ice man and very attentive, but I sort of feel like I´m not getting through to him. #2. Unknown condition.

June 2015
Very likely to recommend Dr. Kaine. I feel very confident that he will take good care of me.
