A positive tele communication visit. I live full time in Arizona now, but come up to Washington for the summer months. I choose to keep Dr. Onell Bains as my sleep apnea physician. With the current Covid-19 issue, being able to have my yearly appointment with him via tele communicating has made it so convenient. I hope Virginia Mason will consider keeping this option available. I want to keep my physicians with Virginia Mason rather than establishing new ones here in Arizona.

  Overall Patient Rating - January 2020
I have mixed feelings about the appointment. Dr. Baines was very nice, friendly, enjoyable to chat with, but I left with the feeling that it was mostly a process to see about a CPAP device rather than just discuss sleep issues in general. I scheduled follow ups to pick up a measuring device, but I might cancel and look for another doctore instead.
