Review of Jessica Pechtel

- |

My 8 year old son was seen by Jessica this morning, and she was very professional and relational. She took the time to explain what could’ve caused his ear infection. I voiced my concerns regarding my son taking antibiotic, and she said that she wouldn’t hesitate to give it to her own kids if they had the same ear infection. I appreciate her honesty and care, and the fact that she reassured me my son needed antibiotic.

Review of Dr. Shetty

- |

I am so thankful that we are able to have Dr. Shetty who is such an amazing doctor right here in Yakima. She is dedicated, determined, and compassionate. When my mother had complications after surgery Dr. Shetty was the only doctor that was able to figure out what was wrong and the correct treatment plan. She absolutely save her life. Had Dr. Shetty not been there my mom and my kids grandma would not be here with us today. Her compassion and care extends even after treatment. Amazing!

I am sorry about your experience and sincerely hope you have not mistaken me for some other Indian doctor. Did this happen in a clinic setting... more

Review of Jennifer Lewis


Best provider I have ever seen. Thorough, honest, kind. She is straightforward and doesn’t mince words, but is very empathic. She is the only provider I want to see. She works in Ellensburg at an urgent care clinic, so not sure about above review, but likely not Jennifer Lewis ARNP in Ellensburg

Review of Jessica Pechtel

- in Yakima, WA |

Went to Memorial ER and was seen by Jessica. She was very attentive and kind during my visit. After reading the other negative review, I can’t believe that she and the other ER staff made an incorrect evaluation that wasn’t warranted. I’d highly recommend this hospital and the staff.

Review of Dr. Johnson

I found dr Johnson to be conscientious and factual, he was in attendance when I was admitted for diverticulosis.

Review of Dr. Edwards

- in Nampa |

We have seen Dr. Edwards many times and I refer my clients to her because I have been impressed with her care of my child. She encouraged an emotional support dog in addition to meds and counseling. I have seen a dramatic increase in my child's happiness and functioning over the past year and a half since we have been seeing Dr. Edwards. She may seem direct and "uninvolved" but that is the difference between psychiatry and counseling. Counselors do the "touchy feely" stuff and she does meds.

Review of Jessica Pechtel

-Yakima, WA |

Jessica filed a CPS report after we brought our child to the ER because his eczema had spread from his cheeks to around his eye and we were worried. She tried to insist that it had become infected, even as a more experienced doctor looked at her and said there was not. I believe her overzealous stance was because our child is not vaccinated. Her report was full of fabrications and the investigator agreed after I provided photo AND video evidence contrary to her report. Dangerous behavior.

Review of Dr. Shetty

- in Wapato, WA |

I credit Dr. Shetty with saving my life. I was hospitalized for 6 weeks in 2016 with C-diff and related things such as a-fib, pneumonia, internal bleeding and an infected gall bladder. She was my infectious disease doctor. She came to see me virtually every day and ordered various tests and prescribed various antibiotics. She ordered the test that disclosed the infected gall bladder and they removed it the next morning. They say one more day and I would have died. Dr. Shetty is excellent!
