Beware of facility fees 3/25/2013

I love my doctor at the UW women's clinic and have received wonderful care from her over the last decade. But the Roosevelt clinics have begun charging separate "facility fees", which my Premera/Blue Cross insurance will not pay. A routine annual preventative exam that should be free recently cost me $174. My understanding is that the UW's neighborhood clinics do not charge facility fees, so I'm sadly looking for another doctor there. more

Would not send my DOG!!! 7/21/2011

SHould be ZERO stars. UW packs people into 15 minute slots no matter the severity of the problem. I have rarely been seen on time - waiting 20+ minutes. As for "Care", the Drs are so rushed they barely know your name. THey have no time to let you voice converns and treat you like an idiot if you ask questions. After numerous sub-par years with UW, I am done. GOing to another organization, where I hope they still remember why they became doctors. more

Patients first---NOT 9/22/2010

The pain clinic at Uw has to be the worse organisation, or lack there of. Referrals are not made from the physicians you see at the UW for 2 weeks, and that is after you have called several times. The schedulers for appointments are not well trained, or just don't care. If a physican has left the services of the UW and you need to make an appointment with someone, they can't figure out if you are considered a "new patient" or a current one, since that doctor has left. That takes a week to 10 days. The schedulers are rude at times, which doesn't help when you have pain. Next stop, Swedish, UW gives poor service. more

Highest Standards 3/17/2010

After 20+ years of not being able to afford medical care, I got Medicare and came to the Roosevelt Clinic. Linda Pinsky MD of the Women's Clinic took a serious interest in my accumulated problems, and sent me to the PT clinic where they got me back climbing mountains & hiking after years of only limping around the house. She had me seen by various specialists who have got me feeling like 46 instead of 66. I have always been treated like a guest. The level of courtesy and conscientiousness is beyond anything I have experienced anywhere else. The billing department is more than cooerative in working out payment plans for non-insurance covered bills. Dr. Pinsky is as concerned about one's heart and home life as she is about the reason one is in the office. I have seen at least 6 doctors in this clinic over the past 2 years, in 3 different departments, and simply have found nothing to criticize. more

Dr. Osborne 2/15/2010

The best family medical guy in town. I know their must be too many family MD's to count, but he has given me over ten years of really positive health care. I am sad that my Molina Insurance won't allow me to keep seeing him, as i have been switiched to Group Health, but hey if anyone needs a referal to a very keen family guy, he is your man more

God help you if you have workman's comp insurance! 11/7/2007

At first, i got reasonable good care at the Bone and Joint Center for my work injuries, except the staff was rude and had to call several times before my calls were returned. Dr Trumble did a great job operating on me several times, but later, when it became too much to deal with workman's insurance, he abandoned me. I say, God help you if you get injured, because as my experience, many doctors will not. I guess, some doctors let workman's insurance dictate them how, when and how long they will treate the injured. more

My experience with care at Roosevelt Women's UW Clinic 7/14/2007

Karen Carlson, ARNP at the Women's Roosevelt Medical Clinic is outstanding, knowledgeable, kind, gentle, compassionate, empathetic, highly skilled, competent, consistent with her care, works with my needs and limitations, has integrity, ethical, and I always feel safe and taken care of by her. I love her. I highly recommend her. She is very busy and popular. I get the best of medical care at this clinic. I have been seeing Karen Carlson, ARNP for 13 years. Sincerely, Kathleen L. McDonald, patient more

Great Doctors, Bad Billing/Accounting Department 8/13/2006

I’ve been seeing Dr Marie Annette Brown for several years (she’s a nurse practitioner with a PHD) and have always felt lucky to have found her. She is very busy, popular and teaches at the nursing school so she doesn’t see patents full time. But she exemplifies what a doctor’s visit should be all about, very knowledgeable about the current research, empathetic, a good listener, insightful, and admits when I’ve stumped her with a question ( e.g. I asked about some test she didn’t know a lot about) and then actually calls me back within a couple of days when she’s looked in to it with her opinion and recommendations, she’s also referred me to several other great specialists when necessary. The few times I’ve needed to go in quicker than they could fit me on her schedule – I’ve seen other doctors in the Woman’s Clinic and had similarly great experiences. So the only down side to going to the Women’s Clinic at the UW Medical Center(UWMC) on Roosevelt is the billing experience I’ve had with the UW system… which is horrible (I’d almost go as far as saying some of the people I’ve had contact with in the billing department are incompetent or just need to retire e.g. seemed to have difficulty with using the computer and entering or extracting information)I’ve tried to pay bills before over the phone only to find out that some how the person taking the information didn’t do something right so the bill goes unpaid, and I don’t find out until a month or more later when I get another statement (this can be particularly aggravating when you’re trying to use your flexible spending account). Plus, the other down side is that my current insurance seems to view them as a hospital so I have a double co-pay (one for the doctor’s visit and one for seeing the doctor at the UWMC ), which isn’t that big of deal considering the great doctors but the other issues with their billing problems might end up making me go elsewhere. more

Not so good care 2/9/2006

I have had one good doctor in the Women's Center and many poor experiences. They are very by the book and don't really look at the whole picture. The wait is not much, but there are much, much better doctors out there. more

UW Physicians = Excellent and Friendly Health Care 1/8/2006

Hi Erin. I went to this UW Physicians clinic last week and had a really positive experience. (I was refered to the clinic, not a specific doctor there) Dr. Michael Soung, the MD that saw me, was really clear and helpful without being in a rush as so many of them seem to be these days. UW consistently rates as one of the best medical schools and nursing programs in the country and it shows. btw - They take a wide variety of health insurance including Blue Shield. more
