*Diana was easy to understand & she knew her subject liked her a lot.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2021
Diana was very personable,and very knowledgeable about the subject matter. she gave me some real information I can use for a better decision. She was never condescending but really understood what my concerns were. It was truly an educational experience just conversing with her. I'd want her to be my primary gastro doctor if possible.

Dr. McFarland is always eager to listen to all the issues you have and gives you options and encouragement
  Overall Patient Rating - November 2020
She listened to my assessments and helped clarify hers in a very conversational way. It showed me her thought process in analyzing my issue and she recommended and endoscopy and a stomach test in radiology to help eliminate a lingering concern. But she was really clear about her assessment and basis of her decision rather than just saying go do this. I left knowing why she had come to that decision. It is refreshingly open, human and genuine. I really appreciated her approach and shared that with my primary doctor.--who also exhibits those positive traits. You got to keep good people like this at Virginia Mason, it makes it a cut above other medical groups.
