This whole appointment was a joke. Nobody took the time to walk me through any results, nobody is addressing the pain or concerns I have. I have family and friends in the medical field, and I also manage a team of new folks to the Seattle area. I will be urging them not to come to this physician´s or Virginia Mason in general. It is sad how little care your doctors show.
September 2017
I came in feeling very bad and tried to explain the issues to the person, she´s not my regular dr... She kept saying I was stressed. She did not hear me when I said I was in pain and I had to ask for medication and for a follow-up with a gyno. I told them I had chills, they didn´t take my temperature, but asked me what my temp was like I´m supposed to know?? Even if she thought I was stressed, she didn´t offer any way to help my stress, no medication or mental health follow-up of any kind. If someone is stressed or in actual pain, they are not typically in a good place to guide their own care. I came to the dr for help and they treated me with the least amount of care. It was frustrating, to say the least. I will not go back to that dr ever again. This is the second time I´ve come to her and she insisted that my ailment was stress, but offered nothing to help the stress.
September 2017
I am new to Virginia Mason and my experience has been excellent.
September 2017
The Doc is great. VM should never look back on her joining the VM team.
August 2017
Dr. H is always friendly and professional. She has an unique ability to immediately instill a sense trust.
August 2017
I was so impressed by Dr. Hedayati. This was my first experience with Virginia Mason and it was excellent.
August 2017
I was just in for a simple test but everyone treated me nicely.
August 2017
this is the second time I saw Dr. Hedayati. She is very friendly; and really engaged in a conversation about what "we" need to do for my care. I love the fact that her schedule is so available that I can get an appointment regardless if she is not my PCP.
July 2017
I´ve been searching for a new doctor. Dr. Hedayati asked me all the right questions and I was very comfortable with her in our discussion concerning my health.
July 2017
I really appreciate Dr Hedayati as my care provider. She is always engaging and I feel comfortable discussing my issues with her.
July 2017
Upon examining my foot, the doctor determined that I needed to be seen by a podiatrist, so didn´t prescribe any medication or follow-up care. The staff helped arrange for an appointment for me later in the day with the doctor in the Sports Medicine clinic.
July 2017
Doctor H was very kind and empathetic. Asked many good questions. Only constructive comment is at times had a little challenge understanding due to her accent, and probably my hearing challenge. A few times I asked her to repeat.
July 2017
Dr. Hedayati is wonderful. Caring, concerned & very professional.
June 2017
Dr. Hedayati is patient with my elderly dad, very thorough and caring. answers questions thoughtfully and I know has take additional time to make sure our questions are answered, and listens carefully to symptoms so she can make sure she´s treating the "whole." Very happy we switched to her (he was with Mt. Vernon doctor).
June 2017
best doctor I´ve ever had. she is a jewel!

She is my favorite doctor.
May 2017
Dr. Hediyati was very thorough with examination, caring and very professional. I felt that I was not rushed and she listened to my concerns. she called personally to go over the results of lab tests explaining the details. she also made follow up appointments. I felt that I came to the right place to get treated.
May 2017
Dr. Hedayati is outstanding = I highly recommend her to everyone searching for a primary care MD. In addition to presenting a very professional, but friendly image, she listens, explains issues in an understandable manner, and has helped me with the paperwork necessary to for me keep my commercial pilot license/FAA medical certificate valid and stay employed.
May 2017
She was very kind and compassionate. I appreciate her taking the time to listen to my concerns. I would recommend her to family and friends.
May 2017

The best...with her I am overcoming lifelong fears of approaching medical care.

I would, and have, recommended Dr Hedayati to others.

Dr. Hedayati is the model of a caring professional. She is kind, attentive, professional and patient-focused.
March 2017
Doctor felt dismissive of the issue and disbelieving when I explained my pain tolerance.
February 2017
Excellent care and listened to all my concerns!
February 2017
thoughtful, took time, positive attitude. good experience. Havent´ been through enough visits and treatment to fully analyze.
January 2017
Dr. Hedayati an I connected immediately. She is extremely professional but also has a lovely personality. . She explained everything in a way that I could easily follow and ask follow-up questions. She is excellent! I can highly recommend her.
January 2017
dr hedayati is an incredible care provider. she did not rush me and listened to me. her exam was very good. she even brought up photos on the computer to further explain how the knee functions. she scheduled me for X-rays and arranged an appointment with sports medicine clinic for next day. now get this, she called me to explain the results of my E rays and followed up with an email to my VM portal. I´ve never experienced a Dr calling me with test results. a new a very positive experience for me at VM. she is a jewel. i trust her to the max!
January 2017
I have many issues and sometimes there really are NO answers. it really is quite okay to say "I really don´t know". I really appreciate that she took the time to study things more, rather than take an easy way out and give a half-baked answer. I just would like to know if the answer is not clear and more research is needed.
January 2017
good
January 2017
Dr. Hediyadi was thorough and a great communicator. I am happy to have her as a primary care physician!
January 2017
Dr. Hedayati is an excellent primary care physician - she spent considerable time with me in going over diagnosis and treatment and underneath it all I could sense a genuinely compassionate and caring person. Generally I am not keen on hospitals/clinics, but Dr. Hedayati gives me a great sense of ease and I am very happy with her care as primary physician - I´m lucky to have found her!
January 2017
I am very pleased with Dr Hedeyati. Sie is sehr gut. I appreciate her concerns and her advise.
December 2016
It was my first time seeing Dr. Heydayati (sp?). She was so very friendly and thorough. I would certainly recommend her to others.
December 2016
Absolutely first rate in every respect.
December 2016
I fired the folks at Swedish and switched to VM some years ago (some time ago I was at Group Health and GH contracted with VM for surgery, etc). Any how, the doc I got assigned (Hedayati) is the best. Good assignment by chance and I haven´t look back since.
December 2016
Warm presence, exerted involvement quest for... treatment, listened attentively, elicited confidence & trust!
November 2016
I´m thrilled to have met Ms Hedayati. I had as primary care doc I liked at VM but she went back to school. So I went to Polyclinic since I have other doctors there. I didn´t feel a good connection with the PCP I chose there so I´m glad to be back at VM for this care. Ms Hedayati was very kind and took good time with me and definitely helped me make decisions and offer options.
November 2016
very through good experience
October 2016
1st visit with this internist. She was excellent and I look forward to her remaining my physician.
October 2016
I waited for dr for +20 minutes. she stated she was late because she likes talking with her patients.
October 2016
excellent
October 2016
Had to find a new primary care physician, and really lucked out. Couldn´t have been happier with the care and information I received, and sincerely appreciated the time spent answering all my questions.
October 2016
All went very well
September 2016
Dr. Hedayati was excellent and took extra time as this was my first visit with her. I look forward to having her as my primary health care advisor for many years to come.
September 2016
greater use of plain language with my 81 yo dad would be helpful
September 2016
My Doctor retired two years ago and I knew I needed to find a new Doctor. I am very happy with my new Doctor, she was courteous, professional, and caring. I am happy to say I have found my new Doctor!
September 2016
A key component of effective healthcare delivery is good communication. Though she was meeting me for the first time, Dr. Hedayati quickly and consistently displayed excellent communication skills.
September 2016
Dr. Hedayati has been exemplary in all my interactions with her.
August 2016
Dr. Hedayati was very calm and did not rush through appointment. She was "present" during our time.

July 2016
best experience since I left group health 15 years ago. love it
July 2016
Good so far
July 2016
I was apprehensive in having to find a new physician upon moving to Seattle. But I have found that physician in Dr. Hedayati. She is very approachable, and understand what you are trying to say. And I love this portal, she has already sent me information concerning lab test, and care information.
July 2016
This was the first visit to this primary care physician. my former provider left VM and this was the introductory visit with Dr Hadayati. the score of 4 reflects insufficient data from which to draw a higher grade.
June 2016
Giving up working with Rich Furlong in Kirkland was difficult...he´s the best. However, Dr. Hedayat quickly assuaged any concerns and is excellent
June 2016
the doctor used medical terms and abbreviations with my 81 year old father. I know them from my work but I was the one translating to lay language. it would be helpful if she would summarize next steps and hand my dad a written easy to read list of what he needs to do and what the staff at his assisted living should do.
June 2016
very good
May 2016
Warm, friendly and attentive. Thorough and concerned. Didn´t feel rushed at all.
May 2016
I was impressed by the time the doctor took to understand what I had come in about and listen to my concerns.
May 2016
This doctors was very nice I normally don´t like seeing other doctors if my primary doctor is unavailable. She was very good.
April 2016
I did not have as much confidence in this provider´s knowledge, not sure why.
April 2016
bedside manner is lacking.
April 2016
provider was very friendly, patient and respectful. I have some gyn issue and was planning to have a baby. She ordered the test for me. I only wish she could explain more about my issue and how this should affect pregnancy.
March 2016
As mentioned previously, I always feel I´m receiving excellent care.
