I have seen many care providers for my issue before seeing Dr. Verdin. I received fabulous care from Dr. Verdin. He listened to my concerns, researched my issue, communicated the information to me regarding treatment options and provided the very best care I´ve ever received! I already have recommended him to others and if I ever need another orthopedic procedure will only return to him. Thank you Virginia Mason for having such a fabulous care provider!

Outstanding physician. Provided very clear description of the findings and treatment options available. Have complete confidence this physician will provide the successful outcome I desire.

Dr. Verdin is awesome! I´m sure every patient that has had a successful TKR raves about their doctor. My experience was great, I would recommend Dr. V for this procedure to anyone that asks. if he´s still operating if/when I need the other knee done, he´s my guy. Thanks!

My experience with Dr. Verdin and his PA were higher the #5. He gives you confidence. He is positive and listens and explains very well.
January 2018
He was honest & said he didn´t know some of the answers. Seemed to doubt my descriptions of my symptoms. Wanted to know about surgery I had in 1974 @ Swedish Hosp. but did not have staff request records. I did that on my own.

May 2017
He´s knowledgeable & professional just not particularly friendly. Not much humor.
April 2017
My impression of Dr. Verdin was that he is a very patient, thoughtful, caring physician. He spent a lot of time with me going over my various orthopedic issues and his explanations made excellent sense. He gave me good ideas on how to manage my issues without the need for surgery, which was music to my ears! He left me with the idea that if the pain levels should increase, I can always come back to revisit these issues and to address the need for surgery at a later point in time. I really enjoyed his demeanor and felt comforted by his knowledge and prescriptions for how to best deal with my knee and shoulder injuries and issues.

Dr Verdin, in my short 68 years of experience, is one of a very few doctors who I would call a true Physician, second only to Dr Farrokhi in Neurosurgery. His knowledge, professionalism, compassion, empathy, skills and simple caring about his patients make him one of the most valuable physicians I´ve ever met.
July 2016
One of the best doctors I´ve had.
June 2016

June 2016
For the last 5 years I have been getting shots in my hip _____ & pain returned. It became more apparent to me it might be a knee issue - leg was getting weak, steps a huge problem. Dr. Vendin took a knee x-ray and voila! There was the problem which he can repair when needed. HE TOOK THE TIME TO TAKE MY PAIN SERIOUSLY and determine the source. Bless him!
