Appalled and Disappointed in my 4 Visits With Doctor..., May 5, 2013
This doctor is rude, doesn't listen to patients and your wait time to see her will be no shorter than 1 hour. Your appointment will be rushed, she will not answer your questions, but will walk quickly out the door to go to her next patient. Her entire set up of work is designed to make as much money as possible and keep the patient sick. She has 3 cars. 2 Mercedes and an Audi and acts like she is God. There is some serious narcissism going on and she needs to stop stealing money from vulnerable patients.
DO NOT GO! Read reviews on line. He is the worst!..., Mar 3, 2013
Do not go to this doctor. You will be disappointed. He was the absolute worst! He makes mistakes that cause human suffering and then he cannot even admit that he has made a mistake. Read the reviews on line. They all say the same thing!
Words cannot describe the feelings my family has towards this so-called doctor..., Jan 1, 2013
We saw this Dr. Erlacher in the ER of our local hospital. My 10 year old daughter came in with severe abdominal pain. I was worried that it may be her appendix. After waiting several hours he finally ordered an x-ray in which he saw a "blockage". He diagnosed her pain as constipation without looking further into this so-called blockage. Three days later we ended up in the ER of the nearest city's hospital. (We live in very rural area.) When the doctors there saw this "blockage" on the xray they did an Ct Scan and an ultrasound. She was in surgery within an hour. What this so-called doctor diagnosed as constipation was actually a 10cm cyst on her right ovary. The result was a salpingo-oophorectomy. Her right tube and ovary had to be removed. The surgeon who fixed her said if we had waited any longer it could have killed her. If Dr. Gray Erlacher had been more thorough and less "charismatic" my daughter would not have suffered for as long as she did. He's very lucky she survived.
Dr Conlin practices billing fraud for services not rendered..., Dec 21, 2012
Went to Dr Conlin for a physical only and I was billed for physical and a separate office visit. All he did was ask me about pre-existing conditions (from form I had to fill out when I arrived) and then he starts billing me as if he is treating me for those conditions, even though I told him I am seeing another specialist for those pre-existing conditions. This is billing fraud. Dr Conlin also tried to prescribe cholesterol medication even though my cholesterol levels were very good, and he became extremely rude when I questioned the need for that.
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).
