This was my first time to see Dr. May. I found her to be a most delightful person and very knowledgeable physician. Her diagnosis of my eye problem, though a surprise to me, was spot-on. The problem responded to immediately to her recommended course of care. I would have no reservations with seeing her again if my PCP was not available as was the case for this appointment.
June 2018
She did not seem very confident.
May 2018
Dr. May is an incredible physician.
May 2018
The Best CDL physical I´ve ever had. I was able to get in the same day when I called. I drove one hour each way to make the appointment. It was still well worth my time.
April 2018
Dr. May is awesome. She cares and I appreciate that a lot since I have so few in my life who do.
March 2018
Only the first visit, but pleased so far.
March 2018
Dr. May is very good at describing things in simple terms, not in "Doctor Speak" so that when I listen I feel engaged in the conversation, not sitting there trying to figure out what she is talking about. She has nice people skills that put me at ease when I see her.
March 2018
Dr May is a very caring, compassionate, skilled professional. I am always impressed that she is so attentive and patient with this old guy´s problems. She is a genuine credit to VM!
February 2018
Dr May and all employees at V/M are great that´s why we keep coming back
February 2018
As always, Dr. May was great. She took time and listened to my concerns and explained what I needed to know.
February 2018
I will never recommend hershe brushed me off and didn´t show any care when I might be pregnant not someone I would ever want to see again
February 2018
wonderful, caring, patient, willing to talk and listen about anything
February 2018
I was VERY satisfied with Dr. May. She is open and willing to work with me and a Naturopath I have had for 10 years. Dr. May seems to have an open mind and knowledge of a wide variety of health and wellness approaches, as well as a conventional medicine. She was interested in helping and supporting me in continuing my own health regimen of diet, fitness, and Naturopathic supplements/bio identical hormones, etc.. I will recommend her to friends!
February 2018
The diagnosis was simple and didn´t require treatment decisions. Dr. May explained what was happening quite thoroughly and allayed my fears.
February 2018
Dr. Bender (Seattle) transferred me to Dr. May (Issaquah) when he retired. She has provided very good services since then.

I love my Dr. May! Her professionalism and demeanor are a comfort to me. She puts me at ease and answers questions to my satisfaction.
December 2017
The Dr. May - a very warm, friendly easy to talk to professional.
December 2017
This physician clearly conveys her lack of interest. She has never asked questions about my condition. She works hard at not ever touching her patient. She clearly conveys dislike of my condition.
December 2017
Dr. May did a great job and I was happy to help with the nurse practitioner who also saw me. That gives me a lot of confidence in the care I get when you have people being trained by physicians in the clinic. If I was howling in pain I might not have appreciated it but for my condition it was great.
December 2017
Dr. May is SUPER!
December 2017

October 2017
Dr. May is outstanding.
September 2017
Doctor provided everything I expected from the office visit, plus immediate X-rays.
September 2017
Dr May is probably a good doctor. However, over the multiple visits I´ve had with her I´ve never gone away feeling completely satisfied with the care received. I feel almost as though she is not genuinely concerned about my concerns. I will probably try a different provider for my next visit.
September 2017
Dr May was fine. I just wouldn´t go out of my way to recommend her.
August 2017

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

March 2017
I like Dr. May. She is not in a hurry to leave and is willing to help.
March 2017
good
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. 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

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.
