Review of Dr. Carlin

-WA |

This guy has an ego that won't quit. He didn't listen to what I had to say, and because of that, instead of having my meniscus repaired, I ended up with a total knee replacement. He also gave me a cortisone shot that only lasted a day because he was acting like such a cowboy. Avoid at all costs!

Review of Dr. Mihalov

-Seattle, WA |

I do not have any major issues following breast cancer over a decade ago (I'm in my late 60ies ) so I can recommend Dr Mihalov for annual checkups. She spends time with me and answers all questions. I have several physicians at Virginia Mason and am satisfied with their care.

Review of Dr. Carlin

- in Seattle, WA |

As a doctor Dr Carlin is pretty good, but his charges are exorbitant and deceptive. He charges $431 for an appointment (spent 15 minutes with me). I pay $290 of that after insurance negotiates down his rate. On top of that was $170 for the blood test and routine x-ray he ordered. Nearly $500 out the door. Charged me at the new patient rate (higher than followups) even though I'm not a new patient. I first saw him 4 yrs ago. VM refused to adjust and didn't disclose beforehand.

Review of Dr. Mihalov

- in Redmond, WA |

I came to Dr. Mihalov at the recommendation of my primary care doctor, and I don't think I've ever had a doctor who I would recommend so highly and without any reservations. I came to her seeking a hysterectomy. I met with her twice to discuss options, and she respected my bodily autonomy when I told her that this was what I wanted when other doctors had turned me away due to my age. Within two months of meeting her, I underwent surgery, and I'm recovering beautifully. I've never been happier.

Review of Dr. Carlin

- in Seattle, WA |

I would not recommend Dr. Carlin to anyone! He was very unprofessional and made a very crude comment to me when I left after waiting an extended amount of time for him to discuss test results. Long wait times in this office.

Review of Dr. Carlin

- in Seattle, WA |

I thought he was very impatient. I had an injection in my shoulder. I moved a bit and he was not happy about it. I can understand his reaction, but I saw an orthopedic doctor after this. After I had an MRI, It was determined that my pain was not because of arthritis, it was due to a tear in my shoulder. I would have to have surgery to repair it, so the injection was not helpful or needed. Also, I felt he was not understanding or patient about my RA symptoms.
