Avoid at all costs!!! Terrible doctor who imposes conservative beliefs on patients!..., May 21, 2013
I had slim pickings with my new HMO so I chose Dr. Galiano because he was downtown near my office. I was always in/out in 30 minutes which was great BUT he would always make snide comments to me. He asked "Why would you need a blood test for STDs? Are you promiscuous?" All I wanted was to get a checkup and figured I could test for STDs since they were already taking my blood. I didn't need a judgement. Recently I went in to get a blood test to see if I was pregnant. This was an unplanned pregnancy so it was really scary. He proceeded to lecture me by saying "The body is made for reproducing and you should not be having sex if you do not want to reproduce." I have never been more offended in my life! He also refused a blood test because he said it would be a waste of money and I needed to wait longer than 2.5 weeks. 2.5 weeks or not I was scared and needed medical guidance in which I received judgement and lectures. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!
RUDE, HURTFUL, NO FEELINGS FOR PEOPLE, LIKE A METH ADDICT..., May 10, 2013
I had my 2 small children for a check up. This doctor bryan ledbetter said"shut up and I will see your kids or leave". I was not angry when I told him the medicine he prescribed has not rid my daughter's lice.. i was and am very frustrated. she goes to daycare while i go to RN school. I asked for a stronger medicine rather than the OTC he gave me last week. No, he gave Bactrim Suspension!

Dr. Regina Syed is a great doctor. She spent a lot of time with me and addressed my concerns. Through my job, I had a lot of back pain and with Dr. Regina's help I'm no longer in pain and was able to get back to work. Thanks Dr. Regina!
Dr.Bernot was awful i've never met such a crappy dr in my life. AND i've had 3 orthopedic surgeries ..., Dec 6, 2012
I've never met a doctor that was so rough and careless. I went in to see Dr Bernot for an injury i got back in August and he just hit my knee and threw my leg around like nothing was wrong. He didn't stop until he noticed i was sobbing and had to tell him to stop. He asked me questions but didn't listen to any of my answers. I've never met anyone that didn't care about what he was doing. He made me wait for 2 hours before going in and i missed 3 hours of work. The only thing good he did was give me a stronger brace. I will never go back.
Dr. West Makes Me Laugh...Even during "that" exam and also makes me feel heard. ..., Nov 26, 2012
I've been seeing Dr. West since 2000. I had to move to L.A. for two years and one of my regrets was having to give up Dr. West. As soon as I moved back to Seattle I immediately signed up to see him. I even talked my husband to see him (his PCP before that was Harborview Emergency). Dr. West spends as much time with you as is necessary. However, the thing that impressed me the most and why I have remained so loyal is that Dr. West isn't a "easy fix" kind of guy. His first instinct isn't pills but exercise, proper diet, mental health, etc. However, if medication is necessary he isn't afraid to prescribe it. The best thing I can say about him is that I've sent him several patients over the years and they all equally sing his praises. (FYI - He is now located in Edmonds at the Edmonds Family Clinic).
