Dr. Kode is always very professional and I truly appreciate her expertise!!
June 2018
My experience is excellent.
June 2018
Dr. Kode is a highly competent and caring professional
April 2018
I am in fact going to ask for a change in the doctor. She didn´t remember me, she asked me the same questions twice during the visit, she seemed very tired and not paying attention to what I was saying. I don´t understand why she asked me to come back in 3 months.
April 2018
She can be short with you. After years of consulting with patients she works at keeping your visit within the allotted time period. I was told she was my ONLY choice.
March 2018
I would pay out of pocket for Dr. Kode if i had to. She is excellent.
March 2018
Dr Kode has been consistently friendly and approachable. There´s no sense that she´s the expert, so just listen to her. With some things, she leads me/allows me to find the best solution (go to bed earlier, get talk therapy, exercise more to reduce stress).
March 2018
Dr. Shubhada Kode is one of the best doctors I have ever had. She sincerely cares about her patients. I would def recommend her to anyone.
March 2018
Dr Kode does not have a good bed side manner. She comes off as a very insensitive, hard problem.
January 2018
Dr. Kode is absolutely the best I´ve ever seen.
January 2018
Dr. Kode is warm, helpful, confidence-inspiring.
November 2017
even though we only spend 15m together a few times a year, I always feel like she remembers who I am. but not in a glad-handing way. it´s a good way
August 2017
Dr. Kode is a gem!
July 2017
Dr. Kode is amazing. She has made my journey with my depression easier to live with. She taught me that depression does not have to define who I am. I would not be here today if it were not for her.
June 2017
Although Dr. Kode spent time with me during this visit due to following-up after a long period, I wish she could spend as much time as I would like during regular visits so I can address any/all concerns. Regular visits are about 15 minutes.
June 2017
Dr. Kode is wonderful. She is very knowledgeable and she really listens to me and offers information based on my responses/info.
June 2017
I´ve been seeing my doctor for over 20 years. I guess that says something.
May 2017
Dr. Kode is helpful and stays on point.
May 2017
Very sensible and professional, came across as truly caring about me.
May 2017
Dr Kode has changed my life. I´ve seen mental health professions periodically over a 25-year period and she´s the only person who diagnosed and treated me in a way that has allowed me to live a normal life. I can´t say enough about how gratitude and respect I have for Dr Kode.
May 2017
I appreciate Dr Kode´s insight and concern for the challenging issues I have been facing. I left my last appointment w her feeling empowered and hopeful.
May 2017
Very good experience.
May 2017
Felt she just didn´t care!
January 2017
She remembers me and my issues while I am at her appointment and she is very understanding and sensible; provides great insight and advice.
January 2017
I´d clone Dr Kode (VM should too). I know I´m not the only person who thinks like this because I like many other of her patients will go to whatever clinic she´s at to see her. I see other patients doing the same thing / going to Bellevue or Issaquah or wherever..
