Dr. Pattison spent considerable time with me, she did not make me feel that she was rushed to move on to the next patient. She appropriately addressed any concerns that I had.

THE BEST.
June 2017
My daughter had recommended Dr. Pattison and I was very pleased with her. She informs you and educates you which I really appreciate. I have never felt rush or cut off. A very professional physican and I would recommend her just like my daughter has.
June 2017
I feel fortunate having access to this excellent medical care.
June 2017
Dr. Pattison is very knowledgeable about most issues, and explains any of her suggestions in a clear and informative manner. She is open to my questions and deals with my occasional stubbornness in a patient way.
May 2017
Dr Pattison has been my PCP for almost 30 years. She is very down-to-earth, matter-of-fact, but still very friendly and approachable. I seriously don´t know what I´ll do when she retires.
May 2017
dr. Pattinson is consistently kind and caring.
May 2017
I feel comfortable and confident with this physician.
April 2017
Dr. Pattison is tops.
April 2017
excellent, caring physician
April 2017
My only "complaint" on this visit was that I felt a bit rushed. Dr. P. didn´t give me time to ask questions and I think it was because this was my first check-up since starting Medicare. But still! I have been her patient for several years & never felt rushed before.
April 2017
We fully appreciate Dr. Pattson and her assistance, the real reason we visit the clinic. #9. Outstanding!!
April 2017
Dr. Julie Pattison has been our provider since the beginning of her practice at VMC. We so appreciate her effort to help us in preventive care rather than waiting for problems that have to corrected/cured. We have great respect and confidence in Dr. Julie.
April 2017
Dr. Pattison is clear in her explanations and does not use patronizing language. She responds to all my concerns and offers treatment suggestions but allows me to make my own decisions.
March 2017
No complaints at all, and so far I really like Dr. Pattison. I´m a nervous talker, and she was very good at grabbing the relevant bits and giving me the information I needed. Not everything above applies, as it was a ´new patient´ visit, and I was referred to a specialist for something that still needs to be diagnosed.
March 2017
Dr Pattison has been my Dr for years and I am very satisfied with my care and treatment.
March 2017
LOVE Dr. Pattison!
February 2017
I had emailed mid-morning about a UTI that I was desperate to get antibiotics for.......within a few hours, the assistant had contacted me to offer me a 5 PM appt - which I realize is later that physicians normally take add on appts - so Dr. Pattison´s willingness to stay and see me (even though I was running about 10 minutes late to get to the appt) was wonderful.
February 2017
I´VE BEEN GOING TO DR. PATTISON FOR MANY YEARS AND I FEEL SHE´S SAVED MY L IFE TWICE WITH THE DISCOVERY OF A LUMP IN MY BREAST AND MY HEART THAT "SOUNDED FUNNY". WOULDN´T TRADE HER!
February 2017
She is an excellent care giver! She´s the reason I continue to go to VM!
January 2017
Thank you SO MUCH for allowing my doctor to spend more time with me during my annual physical! You streamlined the intake process with helpful forms that allowed me to think about and prioritize MY issues. That plus more actual time with the doctor made for a calm and focused meeting without frazzling me. This is a HUGE improvement!!!
January 2017
Diagnosed quickly with a lot of confidence.

October 2016
I felt comfortable with Dr. Pattison. She assured me that my symptoms were normal for IBS, and recommended that I call for another appointment, if necessary.
October 2016
I love my doctor. I feel like she knows me and that I matter to her. She listens to my concerns and I feel like I could tell her anything and she would help me. I trust her.
October 2016
I was VERY impressed with how things have changed. For my last annual visits we were only allowed 20 minutes which made for a stressful and uncomfortable visit for me and my doctor. This year I felt like I was a member of the concierge program! This was my first visit falling under the Medicare program along with my supplemental so the exam was more extensive which was interesting. I love the email system to contact my doctor--very effective and a great way to communicate and get test results. Saves everyone time--especially her valuable time.
October 2016
DR. PATTISON HAS MY UTMOST CONFIDENCE. WOULDN´T TRADE HER FOR ANYONE

Dr. Pattison is a knowledgeable, wise, empathetic, and thorough care giver. She is the best PCP I have ever experienced. I have recommended Dr. Pattison to three people and they too, are in awe of her and appreciate her excellent care.
September 2016
Dr. Pattison is consistently professional, patient and highly communicative. Attentive to detail and able to speak directly and clearly about issues, good at helping me better define my concerns and offering advice, suggestions and solutions. I have been her patient for decades and appreciate her interest in my overall physical and emotional health - looking at holistic needs.
August 2016
Dr. Pattison has always been very thorough with any questions I have. She is responsive and makes sure I have the care necessary in a timely manner.
August 2016
Dr. Pattison is a consummate professional with that (sometimes rare-in-health-care) amazing ability to demonstrate her very human and caring side. She has my total confidence. She also provided outstanding care for my elderly mother, and quickly gained the trust of both of us. I am so lucky to have her as my primary care physician.
August 2016
I needed to see someone in Internal Medicine on short notice to get an OK for oral surgery on a Monday morning. When the dentist´s office called on Friday afternoon to confirm the appointment and found out I had been recently hospitalized, they wanted my primary care physician´s approval before they would go ahead with the oral surgery (extraction). My primary care physician was on vacation and we were able to get a Saturday appointment with Dr. Pattison, who had never seen me before. She reviewed my records and took into account every treatment that I had recently received and the input of every physician I had recently seen and provided her recommendation to the oral surgeon so it was in his office by opening time on Monday morning. I genuinely appreciate her thoroughness and sense of urgency in taking care of me on such a tight schedule.
August 2016
Dr. Pattison was very thorough in her questioning and explanations. She has an excellent and reassuring manner.
August 2016
Dr. Julie Pattison is the best. I recommend her regularly, as she is the epitome of what a Primary Care doc should be. She provides efficient care and is always pleasant, engaged and helpful. I feel like she is a partner in my healthcare.
August 2016
I am a new patient of Dr. Pattison but have been a patient at VMMC for since 1974. I was sorry to see Dr Dipboye depart (my former physician) but I am more than pleased with the continued quality of care I am now receiving from Dr. Pattison.
August 2016
Dr. Pattison and I have a long good relationship.

I have trust and confidence in Dr. Pattison, thus 3 members of my family have seen or see her.
June 2016
Excellent.
May 2016
I have been with Julie Pattison since the early 1990´s. If I could give her a 10+ rating I would. When I lived in Boise for 2 years, I would still arrange my primary care visits with her when I came home to WA for a visit. I currently live in Skagit County but get all my health care at VM-Seattle.
April 2016
Dr. Pattison is an outstanding person and clinician.
March 2016
Dr Pattison has been my primary care provider for over a decade and has always done a great job to explain what is going on and help find solutions that are good for me.
March 2016
Dr. Julie Pattison is an excellent provider in all respects. I do have to comment, however, that the 20 minute session directive somehow does underlie our meetings. Although I do get everything answered, there is a subtle sense of rush. Not her fault, I believe, but the need for "efficiency" that seems to be built in.
March 2016
Dr. Pattison has been my PCP for over 20 years - She´s the best!
February 2016
years ago I recommended this provider to family members and they got in with this provider,and are still patients of hers now,they really like her.
January 2016
I mean, I don´t know jack about medical stuff and it had been 8 years since my last visit but this was a good one. I felt satisfied with my visit and had no problems with any of the information provided.
January 2016
Ive been seeing Dr. Pattison for years and I have ultimate confidence in her abilities and her treatment of my health conditions. I´m somewhat of a nervous patient, and she is excellent at putting me at ease. Her bedside manner is calm and assuring, which I really appreciate. I very much appreciate her Dr./Pt style and I can´t say enough about her care. I would highly recommend her as a provider. She´s the best!
January 2016
It´s nice to have a doctor that is truly interested in how you feel and your progress
January 2016
Dr. Pattison is expected to do so much in the time allotted. We moved really quickly.
