Nathan Summers, PAC, takes time to explain MRI's CT Scans, X-Rays, so I can understand outcome/concerns, unlike former Doctors. Nathan is an EXCELLENT PAC. I saw him previously at Northwest Hospital; found out he had left there. I was overjoyed to find Nathan at Virginia Mason in Edmonds, closer to my home!
