Review of Dr. Fontanilla Jr


I have had many serious documented congestive heart problems (recorded by my cardiologists, previous ER visits, and stays in the cardiac ward). I was having heart problems again, and was admitted to the ER - had tests done. Dr. Fontanilla seemed to ignore all of this information and gave me a lecture about heart disease in general. Then gave me some pills for indigestion and said I did not need to come back to the ER ever again - then he discharged me. A nurse pulled me aside as I was leaving and said I needed help and should go back to registration desk, and ask for a different doctor. I went home out of disgust.

Review of Dr. Smith

- in Tumwater, WA |

If you're comfortable with "the doctor knows all" philosophy of practicing medicine, Smith will fit the bill. I found her to be rigid, controlling, definitely not a lifetime learner. Seemingly incapable of expanding her intellectual or psychiatric knowledge. Her callus disregard for patients in distress was simply astounding. I think she has bonded more closely with her cats than her patients. Hopefully she is capable of expressing empathy and caring to her felines.

Review of Dr. Grous


Ice queen, no compassion, would never ever recommend any human patient ever see her.

Review of Dr. Fontanilla Jr

-Phoenix, AZ |

I was in the ER for a finger that got slammed in a van sliding door. Dr. Fontanilla was extremely dismissive and rude. My finger was injured on both sides, the bottom side had a lot of torn skin. Dr. Fontanilla only realized the cut on the top of my finger -- did not even turn my hand over and notice that I needed stitches until I mentioned the wound. I also had to suggest an xray for my finger which was broken. I was given no after care instructions. I am shocked by this Dr's ineptitude.

Review of Mary Ellen Biggerstaff

- in Elma WA |

I have been seeing Mary Ellen for about 4 years. She is attentive, takes the time to listen, and gives positive input. I never feel rushed when I am in her office.

Review of Dr. Zampona

- in Olympia, WA |

I went to St P's hospital via the ER in May 2016. Dr Z was the driver getting me dx of renal dysfunction/ kidney stones. She is a good communicator and team manager, alleviating some early fears and cognition / instruction issues during recovery. I hope she's getting a fair deal; she's a woman, from SE Europe and educated there. She is very intelligent, has a great bedside manner and team leader talent. Thanks Dr Z! The stones are ok for now, best wishes.

Review of Dr. Abdel-Kader

- in Lacey, WA |

Dr. Abdel-Kader saw me at the Providence Urgent Care Clinic after I was diagnosed with DVT in the emergency room the night before. Having not set up a Primary Care Physician relationship, I was totally unprepared to manage this health challenge. Dr. Abdel-Kader treated me, counseled me, led me through the steps of how to manage this new phase of life, and gave me the prescription I needed to obtain medication.

Review of Dr. Grous

- in Olympia, WA |

When I first took my little 89 year old mother to Dr. Grous, mother was concerned, confused and not wanting to go. Dr. Grouse was so amazing with her. She made her feel at ease right away totally explaining everything as to why mother was there to see her. She carefully and thoroughly answered every one of mothers questions. She is amazing! So loving, caring and respectful of how one feels coming into the office. Now mother looks forward to going to see 'the sweet one'!! Thanks so much!
