Review of Dr. Hartwell

- in Kent |

Dr. Hartwell is very kind & caring. He explains procedures well & answers my questions. The procedures have gone well & he meets with me afterward to tell me how things went. Have had a really good experience with him each time.

Review of Dr. Duncan

- in Lakewood, WA |

This doctor does not know what he is doing. I went to him for a colonoscopy procedure and he almost killed me by giving me too much fentanyl & not enough anesthesia. I woke up during the surgery & he had the nerve to ask me if it hurt. I will not disclose the details here but because of him not knowing what he was doing ,I almost went into cardiac arrest. You better believe I am going to sue him for Medical Negligence/Anesthesia Error etc. The staff was very cold , rude & uncaring.

Review of Dr. Nader

- in Seattle, WA |

I've seen many wonderful doctors. Dr. Nader, while I'm sure he's a fine person, was not one of them. He was dismissive, rude and behaved as if I was wasting his time when I asked questions trying to understand my diagnosis. He then prescribed me a medication that is dangerous for someone with the health condition I was born with. Would never recommend.

Review of Dr. Hartwell

-Auburn, WA |

Doctor Hartwell is one of the best doctors I know! He is not just there to do "work", but from the many times I have seen him, he actually puts his heart into seeing his patients. When he diagnosed me with my sickness, he did more than just diagnose and tried helping me to find community resources and giving me advice and help that a doctor who didn't care would never do. And when I came back for appointments, he remembered me and what we talked about. I definitely recommend him to people!

Review of Dr. Hartwell

- in Renton |

Explained outcome clear as normal however was billed as diagnostic instead. When calling office Andrea was quite rude impatient and only complicated the issue of billing. The appt was for routine colonoscopy. After talking with Andrea in Hartwell's office I wish not to be put through this type of treatment again and will look else where. Thank you

Review of Dr. Pakseresht

- in Seattle, WA |

Dr. Pak (as he's known inside Highline) was excellent. Attentive, insightful, knowledgeable and genuinely concerned (without being "mushy"). He was still new at Highline when he treated me for a serious (and luckily temporary) condition and in a sense still "getting his feet under himself," but his quality showed through. He listened very well and balanced his recommendations based on the my condition (obviously) and also my preferences (which was welcome). He is skilled and earned my trust.

Review of Dr. Nader

-

My mother was referred to Dr Nader for GI issues. On a ct scan he and the radiologist incidentally saw a nodule in her lung. He asked her to come in and I joined her for the appointment. He only talked to me and hardly looked at my mother who was the patient. terrible bedside manners. Said nodule could be cancer and she needed invasive test. Advised NOT to see lung specialist. Turns out its benign. He caused unnecessary worry and should have referred her to MD with needed speciality. Don't trust

Review of Dr. Hartwell

-Des Moines, WA |

Dr. Peter Hartwell tore my anus muscle during colonoscopy that was not required but he recommended it after he removed a hemorrhoid. Now I have a prolapse and when I called to complain he said "its no big deal." Seeing as I have to physically push my intestine's back in my anus every time I go to the bathroom, for the rest of my life!,....yes its a BIG deal!

Review of Dr. Hartwell

- in Burien, WA |

I have had two colonoscopies performed by Dr. Hartwell. He is friendly, informative, skilled and efficient. I wasn't happy that I had to wait several hours beyond my scheduled time for the procedure, but I'm not sure that was within Dr. Hartwell's control. I was very impressed that he called me at 8 p.m. in the evening after the colonoscopy to discuss the results.
