I have seen Dr. Almay numerous times for the toe fungus. She seemed a bit out of patience with me on the last visit - perhaps because I questioned some follow up by her staff. If I put her off, I apologize. I do feel she is working with me in an attempt to arrest this condition.
Dr. Almy is wonderful - a real jewel!

I already have recommended Dr. Almy to many friends! Dr. Almy is kind and thoughtful while being friendly and courteous. Dr. Almy is extremely intelligent and allows time for me to ask pertinent questions either my husband or I may have that particular appointment. She also has a wonderful personality - getting my (and my husbands humor) too. I (we) just adore her, as did my mother-in-law (deceased) and my friends mother, also deceased. Both women, along with the other friends I have suggested to see Dr. Almy, adore her as well! Your board found a good one - make sure you keep her!
Dr Almy is great!
Dr. Almy has been providing excellent medical care and understands my _____ completely. But what makes her care extraordinary is the care & concern she has shown me consistently through us working... - I feel quite _____ to _____ her as a care giver.
Dr. Almy really listened to my complicated medical scenario. She recognized that alternative medicine providers play a role in getting me fully functioning again and did an excellent job in adding her orthopedic perspective and adding more treatments to my regimen.
Pilar Almy is a real jewel.
DR. ALMY is an exceptional doctor, always kind, caring, concerned and polite. I have never had a BAD visit with her.
I appreciated that she connected with me as an individual and not only as a patient w/a problem.
Most times the doctor takes me early. "Thank you Virginia Mason for having Dr. Almy. She is great." Thank you."
she is excellent. she went over her allotted time with me due to a concern that took more time to discuss than planned. I appreciated the time.
Excellent interaction with me regarding pain and bone issues to help my foot not have pain.
The previous visit that Dr. Almy cared for me was horrible. The visit on 3/16/2016 was different, very friendly.
Excellent care was provided!
Best, most compassionate and caring practitioner I have found at Virginia Mason.
Dr. Almy answered all of my questions about my problem and how best to manage it. I came with a list of questions to learn more about my condition and how best to handle it. She gave me very practical information to deal with my condition--answering all of my questions and adding to what knowledge I already had. She made me feel we were a team dealing with this. Personally, she is a very down to earth, delightful doctor to whom I can relate and feel confident she cares about me and my concerns.
I wish I would have seen Dr Almy months ago. She is so very informative and helpful. I trust her.
