Very thorough job

I have been SO PLEASED with Christina Parrish ever since my very first visit. I feel that she takes me very seriously and allows me to be apart of the decision making when it comes to treatment, etc. She confided in a second provider during my appointment and I was very impressed by this. I would recommend her 100x over again. Very very impressed with the care she provides, especially in a healthcare system that does not encourage or allow providers to do so.

#5. Excellent care from *Ms. Parish, especially explaining the pros & cons of medications. I would for sure seek her again for health care. A great listener.

my doctor brought in my GP which was nice, but also a bit alarming and they didn't explain why Dr. Ferguson came in. I think maybe my diagnosis was a bit challenging perhaps, so 2 doctors?

Dr. Parish is amazing, words can not describe her. I am 49 years old and she is the best PCP that I have ever had.

She was the best I've seen at the Univ. Vlge. Clinic , even compared to a real Physician, because she wrote everything down, and addressed thoroughly all my symptoms. I felt hopeful that I was going to get well quickly because of her excellent care. She's the Best!

Christa Parish, DNP, ARNP took the time to listen to my concerns and talk through different solutions that would address my concerns, she did a great job educating me on different medications and always makes a follow up plan. It is the first time I have felt like I wan't lost in the shuffle, handed a quick fix and shoved out the door.

My experience with Dr. Parish was the most enjoyable one I've had with a doctor since becoming a patient at Virginia Mason. She was kind, honest, and exceptionally professional. She provided me with thorough information regarding how to continue to care for my broken fibula, what to expect as it heals, and what to do if I have concerns about how it is healing. She also helped me make my followup appointment while I was there.

I could tell that Krista was maybe new to VM and still figuring out how the medical center does things. That said, the healthcare that I received was excellent. If she was overwhelmed by being behind schedule and/or being new to the environment, she did not let it impact the attention she gave me nor the time she spent explaining her treatment plan. I felt very cared for.
