I have been seeing Dr. Trigg for almost 15 years now. With his thoughtful guidance and help, I have been able to manage my diabetes well under control. Dr. Trigg is always very responsive to my questions and concerns. Great doc! hope he doesn´t retire anytime soon. Enjoy having him as my physician. I have also seen Zach, the diabetes care nurse a few times. He was very prepared to discuss my Diabetes history and offered great insights/advice for me to manage my condition even better. Very dedicated and thorough. Forward my thanks to him also.

Dr. Trigg is my favorite doctor ever, this is my ninth year of him being my primary care doctor. He always takes the time to hear what´s going on with my health and is very helpful, kind and very professional. All doctors should be as good as Dr. Trigg!
March 2017
Dr. Trigg has always impressed me with his ability to remember me though I imagine he has hundreds of patients. While he must be on a tight schedule I always feel like when he´s in the room that he´s all mine and in no rush. He´s thorough. He´s likable. He´s a good troubleshooter -- gets to the bottom of things pretty fast. I enjoy the level of confidence he has in himself which I know is not inflated. He´s been my doc for 20 years and I´ve never once been unhappy with is approach, manner or ability to take care of me. I did leave him about 15 years ago for two years because we moved out of the area. At that time I sought help from a number of different doctors looking for good care. I had been spoiled by the level of care Virginia Mason and Dr. Trigg had so consistently given me so I returned to him even though it means I drive 45-60 minutes for my appointments.
March 2017
I trust Dr. Trigg.
March 2017
I did not appreciate him laughing when I explained my concerns. It made me feel like my concerns were not valid and that I am making an issue out of something I should know not to make an issue out of. As a patient/person, it is very difficult to know when something should be checked (we keep hearing about early detection) or when something is an overreaction. He made me feel like I was overreacting but then said he could not find fault in my thought process. He did then go through a good examination and explained what he found and how that related to what he knows about my concern and he did give me the option to see specialist (ENT) but did not necessarily recommend it.
March 2017
