One of the longest wait times for a consult I have ever experienced. Then the consult lasted 2 hrs. Don't feel she understood what I wanted. Complete waste of an afternoon, plus it cost $100 and waste of gas driving to Bellevue.

negative experience from consult to patient coordinator calling me non stop for more money

Recently had a tummy tuck. 3 kids had taken a toll...........I am one happy camper. Dr. Nygaard is the best. She was upfront about how this procedure would go and what I need to do on my end to make it a successful one. Her staff was great, she was great and I couldn't be happier!

Would NOT use this surgeon again!!! Do your homework and be smart about choosing a surgeon that appears to only care about $$$, getting as many patients through the door as possible.

Dr. Nygaard is a perfectionist who leaves nothing to chance. She explains everything in detail pre-surgery and was with me every step of the way post surgery. To that point - she gave me her home and cell number if I had any questions or concerns as I recovered. I don't say this lightly - as I took this surgery very seriously - she was the BEST and I can highly recommend her especially if you are looking for a breast reduction (what I had done)

I've never had better care from a Doctor or Clinic, or from a hospital for that matter. I recently had a breast procedure and Dr. Nygaard did just what she said she would and the results were better than expected. I'll be back!
