July 2018
I only see Dr Stefanovic once a year, but she was very familiar with my records and past treatments. Her personality and knowledge is why I commented earlier in this survey that she is a World Class doctor .
July 2018
very courteous and professional!
July 2018
As always, everyone was great.
June 2018
A+: Dr. told me about benefit of more chronic; pain relief by doubling my Cymbalta. NONE! Of other MD´s told me that in 3 years!
May 2018
She only spent about 5 minutes talking to me. She began to order all these procedures and tests after several very brief questions, without explaining why they are warranted. During the cystoscopy I said I was nervous but she did nothing to help me with it. Because of the nervousness my urethra was very tight, and I felt very painful during the procedure. Though the nurse put extra numbing medicine on me, it was still so painful. Normally the pain should go away within 2 days, but mine last more than one week and I had to take Tylenol for 4 days to help with it.
May 2018
I think maybe this was expected to be a short appointment, because the ostensible purpose was prescription renewal, but I´ve had the same experience with Dr. Stefanovic in the past: she brushes off questions with quick answers that seem to oversimplify things, and isn´t super interested in my concern over taking maintenance medications possible forever with only moderate efficacy.
May 2018
*Dr. K. rocks!
April 2018
outstanding experience! usually I am anxious. not so with dr. stefanek. she listens well, and is clear.
April 2018
Dr. Stefanovic is always very pleasant and explains all the procedures she is taking. I got kind of discouraged with my numerous UTI´s and didn´t follow her advice to the letter. She explained everything to me again and encouraged me to fit everything into my routine and motivated me to follow through, which I am doing. She is very caring and concerned.
March 2018
very satisfied with doctors and nurses at Virginia Mason
March 2018
Wonderful physician with tremendously comforting demeanor.
January 2018
I chose this doctor by recommendations and I am glad I did.
January 2018
I believe the appointment could have been handled on the phone as it really was about getting some more some tests done. I had some other questions on another matter which she answered and I was satisfied with visit with her.
January 2018
Caring, empathy, the understanding of a patient is something a person has within, not something that can be learned in medical school. Dr. Stefanovic has these qualities and why I have been a patient of hers for a number of years. She does not hesitate to spend the time required to ensure I understand everything about my condition and answer all questions. We need more Dr. Stefanovic´s. Thank you for allowing me to show my appreciation for her.
December 2017
I have seen Dr. Stefanovic over a decade. She is very thorough so that is why we drive a little ways to see _____, would be nice if the Federal way location had a kidney stone specialist.
December 2017
Dr. Stefanovic´s assistant called for a follow up after Turp surgery and finding of cancer. I appreciated the concern and care.
December 2017
My pharmacy insurance company recently changed the cost of my prescription medication from $57/ month to over $200 / month for the coming year. Dr Stefanovic found a solution (independent pharmacy that would prepare my medication locally) for the original price of my medication. This was very important to m e
December 2017
She is a terrific doctor!
November 2017
DR Stefanovic was very professional, courteous and, as always knowledgeable, as well as efficient with her time and mine.
November 2017
Confidence in care provider is directly related to having only seen them one time. I have been dealing with this medical issue for a few years now and my hope for recovery is presently dwindling. Provider(s) did provide renewed hope.
November 2017
For nearly forty years I have complained of symptoms, sometimes debilitating, and she is the first provider who took enough interest to listen and address the symptoms with appropriate testing. in 2014, six weeks after another evaluation in another place, she listened and directed me for the repeat biopsy which found my cancer.
October 2017
I felt the follow-up exam was rushed. Since it was a follow-up exam all the doctor wanted to do was check my urethra/vagina. Hardly saw her face. She could have taken a moment to acknowledge me and then begin the exam. I don´t doubt her competence and she can be engaging. I was there early so shouldn´t have needed to rush.
October 2017
My husband and I were very impressed with Dr. Stefanovic´s "people skills" in fact on the way home we discussed if Virginia Mason makes a special effort to hire staff who are very personable, down-to-earth and friendly. Dr. Stefanovic was very information, asked me many questions and actually listed to my answers and responded to them. She did not seem rushed and gave the impression that she wanted to make we had all our concerns taken care of before she left.
October 2017
She (the doctor) was above average. She didn´t talk down to me, and I felt like I known her.
September 2017
Always a good visit with Dr. Stefanovic. She listened and then explained any questions I had.

August 2017
Excellent experience.
July 2017
I have been a patient of Dr. Stefanovic for many years, have always been treated with courtesy and have great confidence in her care.
July 2017
She´s one of the best physicians I´ve had.
July 2017
I have already recommended Dr. Stefanovic to several friends.
July 2017
It was one of the best experiences with specialist I would strongly recommend Dr. Stefanonvic to all my friends.
July 2017
She treated me like she really cared.
June 2017
Dr. Stefanovic and Dr Corman are most excellent.
June 2017
I was so impressed with Dr. Stefanovic that I made her my primary urologist.
May 2017
Everything there is top notch. One thing I particularly like is that Virginia Mason physicians are not arrogant and condescending, as many medical professionals tend to be. I have, among many degrees, a PhD in biochemistry, and, in other settings, I´ve been quite disappointed with physicians making scientifically incorrect assertions. Not the case at Virginia Mason.
April 2017
Excellent care.
April 2017
Dr Stefanovic is an absolute gem. She goes well above and beyond to provide a very personal touch
April 2017
She was really good and figured out what the issue was quickly.
April 2017
Next to Kim Leatham, she is the best doctor at Virginia Mason bar none.
April 2017
Dr. Stefanovic was warm; caring, knowledgeable, and efficient - the first provider I´ve seen at VM in years, and I look forward to seeing her again.
March 2017
Have told many friends about her & about your hospital. Highly recommend this.
March 2017
Dr. Stefanovic was terrific! Great experience!!
February 2017
I have discussed and recommended this care provider for her ease with this medical problem with my PCP
February 2017
Great provider.
January 2017
the provider showed no interest in my concerns. since I´ve seen a specialist for another concern at a different hospital, she showed no interest in listening to my other concerns that i had. saying that the specialist could also address these other concerns. I explain that she was my urologist and the other was a specialist, but she did not care.
