This was the fastest and simplest annual exam I have ever had. Felt like a wasted of time in a way.

good
February 2017
Dr. Norsen (Bellevue Clinic) is top-of-the-line - hope he is always there for me. Dr. Sara May (Issaquah Clinic) was genial, competent, caring, knowledgeable and I hope to utilized her in future for further DOT physical(s).
February 2017
Her handoff wasn´t the best. She didn´t say it was nice to meet you or have a good day or anything, so I was confused about whether I was supposed to come back to her.
February 2017
Dr. May is genuinely concerned and she is organized and calm so glad I found her!!
February 2017
Dr. May seemed very competent and compassionate.
January 2017
Dr. May called me the next day to see how I was doing
January 2017
This was my first appointment with Dr. May. She was very professional. She took some time to get to know me personally! We spoke about my medical history. I was very pleased and will continue to see her as my PCP as I had to change due to insurance issues.
January 2017
Dr. Sara May is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I appreciated getting an explanation of the various possible problems I might be experiencing and the options to further investigate and address the underlying cause. Thank you!
January 2017

positive experience
December 2016
first time seeing Dr May and she was pleasant and spent time listening to my medical concerns
December 2016
Very professional, AND caring.
November 2016
Dr. May actually read my intake paperwork and medical history. A rare thing.
October 2016
My first meeting with Dr May and I was very impressed with her professionalism.
September 2016
The doctor that I met with was good but lacked some confidence in overall exam approach. Her overall review of my symptoms, exam and presentation of treatment options was adequate. She just needs to portray a bit more confidence.
September 2016
Very practical advice for a simple visit.
August 2016
Very kind and helpful, displayed enough concern without causing worry or fear. Easy to communicate with and excellent efficiency with communication of lab results and personal touch with direct phone communication.
August 2016
Dr. May listened to what I had to say and did her very best to get the tests I requested. She also was patient and thorough.
July 2016
A+
July 2016
This was the first time I´d seen Dr. May as I opted to take the first available appointment with any care provider. I greatly appreciated her patience and care, she was thorough, informative, genuine and helpful.
July 2016
Dr. May, thank you for seeing me on short notice. I´m glad you had an open appointment. I really wanted to make sure there weren´t any signs of infection.
June 2016
Dr. May was professional, clinical, well spoken, and well reasoned, but not particularly warm, caring, or empathetic. I appreciated her professionalism.
June 2016
great appointment
June 2016
Dr. May spent all the time necessary and e=dealt with all my questions and concerns.
June 2016
Great physician.
May 2016
I have already sent Dr. May several patients and they have been very happy.
May 2016
Dr. May was nice enough, but I can´t quite pinpoint her approach to care so maybe our perspectives/expectations didn´t mesh well. I felt...incomplete, like she was looking for me to tell her what to tell me. She endured through all my backlogged concerns, but when it came test results and how to manage care going forward, I had to seek more information. It was almost literally [despite the pain you´re experiencing, nothing is wrong. Full stop.] Once I challenged the initial response, I was provided more clarity.
May 2016
For a first time visit the dr. was great.
April 2016
Dr. May understands that "people wish to know how much you care, before they care how much you know." Dr. May has a strong command of internal medicine and the unique ability to explain complex medical language in a manner that anyone can understand.
April 2016
Visit was too short for true assessment but I felt she was competent & sharp.
March 2016
Not sure if it is a personality issue with myself and this Dr. but this is the second time I have seen her and once again left feeling like my health concerns were dismissed from the onset. She is very young and maybe lack of life experience or maybe she isn´t listening and has already formed her opinion? Can´t really figure it out but will not be seeing her anymore. Felt like a waste of my time.
March 2016
I am very pleased to have Dr. May as my PCP. She takes the time to listen to your questions and concerns as well as discuss those with you. I would highly recommend Dr. May!
March 2016
Dr. May appears kind and caring. I have only seen her for very routine things however so I am cannot speak to her clinical skills - at least my perception.
January 2016
Dr. May is a wonderful doctor. I´m very glad to have found her and would love to keep her as my Doctor.
January 2016
Dr. May is a great doctor and after our first visit, I wanted to make her my primary care physician.
