I´m very comfortable discussing anything with Dr. K. Blade. She has always been compassionate, concerning & helpful
July 2018
Dr Blade is great, one of the best doctors I´ve had in the 70 long years I´ve been going to doctors.
June 2018
My problems are complex. I´m forever adding new challenges. I´m a hard patient to help but she really does try. I live far away now but still want to stay with her. I send her way too many emails and she likely does not get paid for all the time reading and replying for which I feel badly. She and staff are always good at responding quickly.
June 2018
The presence of the scribe allowed the provider to actually spend time looking and talking with me instead of being focused on documenting notes. Make this a standard of care.
June 2018
Dr. Blade always listens and explains issues, she is the best
June 2018
I couldn´t see my primary, Dr. Shenoy (who I really like) but since I could get in the same day I called I was scheduled to see Dr. Blade. She is so nice. Explained that I needed to see the eye doctor because she didn´t feel what was happening was life threatening most likely a retinal issue. She didn´t hurry, she listened to me, she asked many questions.
June 2018
I like the concern Dr Blade always exhibits whenever I see her about my medical issues. She genuinely cares about me and explains medical issues in laymen´s terms. I feel very comfortable with her and love her soothing southern accent.
June 2018
I SO appreciate Dr. Kristie Blade, her attentiveness, active listening, obvious interest in and care for my concerns. It was a stroke of genius to assign her a charting scribe so she can focus on patient care and spending the time required to address my concerns. Thank you.

Dr Christy Blade was involved in my issues with medication reactions and also probed further into how I self-medicated for the days when I could not get any appointment to see a doctor--making my UTI that much worse. She did not go off-topic and was sensitive and professional. I hope to be able to see her again!

December 2017
This was the first appointment I´ve had w/ Dr. Kristie Blade. She was immediately reassuring and interested. She allowed me to express my concerns, give my history, and ask questions. I felt at ease w/ her and felt informed about the various possibilities of what could be causing my problem. She told me what kinds of tests she was ordering, and what we would be looking for from each of them. I left the appointment feeling reassured and in good hands. I appreciate the rapidity of the help I received, since it was the end of the year, and Christmas season, and everyone did so much to help me get the testing I needed done in spite of the fact that it was a very busy time for scheduling the testing.

I have several friends who would like to be seen by Dr. Blade. unfortunately for them, she is not taking new patients. But this is what I like about VM. You´re not trying to pack in more patients than can be reasonably seen. I always feel Dr. Blade takes enough time with me and helps me solve any problems I may have. She´s the best!

Dr Blade is a very compassionate doctor with great bed side manor. Every time I have seen her she answers all my questions and gives great advise.
March 2017
Dr. Blade is an exemplary physician that has a profound insight about the psycho-biology of her patients. She is a very astute active listener and extremely inclusive in her diagnosis and treatment planning. I have never experienced a doctor that has actually listened to me before; that is, and will always be a refreshing appeal to the medical community; as most doctors usually tell you what to do and how to think about your affliction; instead of inquiring from you about your affliction! Dr. Blade actively seeks information from you (the patient) about your perception and how your affliction is interrupting your way of life. She truly understands that a medical affliction has a strong impact on your emotional well-being as well as your financial, biological and overall basic essentials in life! Her medication evaluations are through and she will not hesitate to inform you if you are being irresponsible in following your prescribed medications. This is very pleasing to have someone ask you about yourself instead of someone telling you about you before they even meet you! Dr. Blade is a definite role model for our future interns and doctors that are diligently training to serve the public.
March 2017

March 2017
Dr. Blade has been the BEST provider I have ever had. I don´t plan on changing anytime soon.
February 2017
Dr. blade has been very understanding and nice ever since I first saw her (back then because my prmary physician was on vacation). So I did ask the clinic to switch her as my primary physician. You will feel no pressure whatsoever every time you visit her. She respects you as a patient and will tell you what needed to be done and let you decide if you are ready to do it or not. She would tell you what needs to be done but won´t force you to do it if she thinks it will not put a danger to my life.
February 2017
I moved to Washington about 3 1/2 years ago and chose Dr. Kristie Blade through the Virginia Mason website and feel very fortunate that I did. I have had several health issues and have felt that I could not have found anyone more caring, thoughtful, helpful, concerned and easier to talk to than she is.
January 2017
I have extremely high confidence in Dr. Blade; I am pleased to be under her care.
January 2017
Dr. Blade is a GREAT doc! I am so glad I found her. And the Lynnwood clinic location is incredibly convenient for me so I hope she stays there for a VERY long time.
