Learn about Dr. Fosmire

Care Philosophy

I have patient centered approach for treating and caring for all of my patients. I show compassion, concern and encourage each patient to be involved in their care. . I educate my patients on their condition and give them an open environment to ask questions so they we may make the best medical decisions for them together. I give patients options to try conservative treatments if available to them. I provide opportunities for patient involvement in their own care. This is very important in addition to making sure they have a clear understanding and their expectations are met. We pride ourselves in clear and timely responses to their questions and concerns.

Patient Comments (6)
Bellevue, WA |
Dr. Fosmire was very helpful, listened to all of my concerns, and had a great attitude!
Sammamish, WA |
I saw Dr. Fosmire once, following a series of 3 ER visits for extremely distressing neurological symptoms. I felt he was dismissive of my perceptions of the severity and nature of these symptoms and was viewing me as being a "nut case." Imaging showed spinal compression and two ruptured discs in my neck, which he ruled out as the cause of my symptoms; however, 2nd opinion by a neurosurgeon led to a cervical discectomy/fusion surgery, resolving both the symptoms and my "hypochondriasis."
Bellevue, WA |
Very knowledgeable and did a thorough exam. Did an excellent job of explaining my condition and the impact is was having and will have. He preformed the EMG himself, usually a tech does this, and did and explained his findings as he preformed the test. I feel very confident in his knowledge and his empathy to the patient.

Had an exam by Dr. Fosmire today he was amazing. He took the time to ask many questions and went over my MRI extensively and then I had a very thorough exam. He then left and after a few minutes he printed out plan of action for me, went over everything again to make sure I understood everything. He made sure every question I had was answered thoroughly. Such a great professional Dr. I would highly recommend. I left his office wishing all my doctors had such a great attitude and helpful.
in Seattle |
He is not sympathetic and not caring for his patient. I had you wait two months for the appointment and when it came I cut off my traveling vacation and came to town just to see him, yet when I arrived few minutes late he refused to see me not considering that I left my family behind and booked a ticket just to make it to the appointment. I don't recommend his clinic.
in Bellevue, WA |
Dr. Fosmire seemed to diagnose me solely based on the recommended diagnosis by the physical therapist I was working with. He prescribed a medication that did not work, when I attempted to make another appointment with him, I was told, He doesn't do follow ups. I explained the medication wasn't working, the nurse called me back with a new prescription. I said I wanted to try something else first because I'd heard about many horrible side effects from that one, he and nurse got upset!!
