It seems if there is any small disagreement with the care provider, she would not answer my questions through email as what she used to. I hope my assumption is not correct.

Dr.Janet Leung is the best endocrinologist I found in Seattle. She is very knowledgeable, very experienced, and she listens. She has an unique gift to explain complex concepts so well that you finally get it. Dr. Janet is attentive to patients and very responsive over Virginia Mason messaging. I have the best experience with her professional wise and intellectually.

  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
Took the time to listen to and answer my questions in depth - really felt like she wanted to help me manage my diabetes better. Felt like she was really interested in working WITH me to manage my issues, not the plutonic ideal of diabetes.

*Dr. Leung was top-notch in every way.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Provider seemed rushed and unfamiliar with software when showing me ultrasound images. Provider started off my appointment with apologizing in advance if my documents were lost in the mail when she returned them to me. This indicated to me she would not try to get materials back to me and just blame the postal service. She implied she did not want to be blamed. Not a good start to a first meeting. She smirked when looking at some of my ultrasound images as if too small an issue to care. Argued with me when I reported to her what the referring VM doctor said to me which prompted the visit. Said "That's funny because in his notes he wrote..." as if what I was reporting was not accurate. She did not ask me any questions about how I was feeling, what led me to the appointment, etc. She just wanted to look at the scans. I had never met her before. She finally actually touched my neck/thyroid as I was leaving. She needs more training on interacting with patients. If she just wanted to look at images, she could have done that on her own instead of me sitting in the room watching her look at her computer and try to figure out how to use the software.
