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.

No complaints.

Dr. Crowley has proven to be the center piece of a strategy that is easing the pain I have had over many years. Dr. Crowley is the model of a true healer. She is the best.

I found my provider very cold. I did not feel that she cared and I will not go back to her. She was short and I really felt she didn't like overweight, elderly people. It was the first time, with both encounter with this provider, that I felt the provider just did not like me and was going through the motions of being my doctor.
