Olympia, WA |
I was having a very difficult and personal surgery, and Dr. Schmidek was extremely sensitive to my needs, and kind. She went above and beyond standard practice and I will always be grateful.
in Seattle, WA |
Dr. Schmidek is such a great doctor and surgeon. She really listened to me and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my breast reduction surgery. Thank you. My only regret is that I didn't do it 20 years ago.

I feel very lucky to have found Dr Schmidek at Virginia Mason. She made my whole experience positive and much easier to navigate.
Seattle, WA |
I met with Dr Alexandra Schmidek at Virginia Mason Plastic Surgery. I was referred to begin the process of receiving a breast reduction to treat back and shoulder pain that is well documented in my medical record. She repeatedly insisted that reducing my breasts would give me a "disproportionate" and "not conventionally feminine" appearance. She then asked me if I had been raped or molested as a child and if that was why I was seeking the surgery. Rude, offensive, and ill-prepared to serve
in Bothell, WA |
Dr Schmidek showed me obvious concern during the entire process - from initial evaluation to post-surgery care.
