She took an interest in my overall health. I appreciate the approach of treating underlying chronic problems not just focusing on collecting a PAP
in Spokane, WA |
She added the component of patient education, including me in my own health care and helping me understand why certain medications were being recommended.

I started seeing Ravasia in Dec-2015. She started running unnecessary tests on me. I'm not that much overweight and they suggested I start their weight management program. I was put on phentermine and topamax which made me sick. I had a thyroid ultra sound in January and stop going to Ravasia's office in Feb 2016. SIX months later I received a phone call that something was found on my thyroid ultra sound and I needed to schedule another appt.

I love the way this office and Dr. has connected all the dots that other past doctors have just touched on. They really understand what is going on with the body and how it all works.
in Spokane, WA |
Dr. and staff are really responsive to any questions. I was able to get appoints when it was convenient with my work schedule.

The one thing I like about Dr Ravasia and all the providers, I see. in the metabolic program is that the care and plans are very specific to you as an individual. But you need to be involved in your own care and give honest feedback each visit. Good support that allows you to take control of your own health.

I was a patient for over 2 years. Dr. Ravasia performed my hysterectomy and did a quality job. Then the practice started to require metabolic testing, expensive labs and unrealistic appointment times (3 hr health coaching w/unlicensed staff). Navigating their bills is a nightmare. Multiple expensive tests were done on me and never followed up on. I am a health care professional, and I am saddened by what has happened to this practice.
Spokane, WA |
Changed appointments and offices. Left me to drive all over town and then admonished me for being late. Is involved with Health Diagnostics Laboratory who has filed bankruptcy over in inquiry about fraud. They paid the doctors offices to order labs- these were all out of network for my insurance and left me with a $2,000.00 lab bill! It's been a horrifying experience
Snoqualmie, WA |
charged double their written estimate for a cystoscopy, insisted I see her dietician/weight loss clinic though I was less than 10 pounds overweight, put me on testosterone then refused to acknowledge it caused hair loss, scheduled a 6 a.m. procedure then left me in the exam room waiting nearly 4 hours, having nothing to eat or drink since the day before. Did a large panel of labs at annual exam, took 4 months to get an appointment for results. Took 3 months to make a referral.

This practice is a dollar-centered enterprise, not patient-centered. I've been with them for close to 10 years, but leaving to find a better provider because the quality of care has deteriorated greatly. Unnecessary tests, rude staff,(they all appear stressed out), huge staff turnover. Scheduling is a mess.I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Ravasia to discuss treatment options for a serious issue,but she wasn't available to see me on the day of the appointment, that's after waiting for 2 mo.
in Newport, WA |
THIS IS A MONEY-MAKING FACTORY: NOTHING MORE. They did not send me extensive intake paperwork after 3 request calls by me. They called 45 minutes before my appt. and said if I was not there is 15 minutes to complete paperwork, they would charge me $200 no-show fee. As I live 45 minutes away, I told them I could not make it that fast. They sent me a $200 bill. I called them and sent them a letter to request reversal of the bill. They are still saying I owe them $200. They care about $ not us

Dr Ravasia is burned out on gynecology. She has unqualified people doing the majority of her work and she is never available. She runs all kinds of assessment tests but is unable to connect the dots and figure out a diagnosis. Her charges are to the extreme and you do not receive the service she charges for. I have cancer that may have been diagnosed sooner if I had gone to someone more qualified.
Dr. Ravasia insists that you get all theses unecessary tests done when all I wanted was birth control. She won't do anything in one appointment! She insists that you make all these appointments for unnecessary tests. She will charge $400 per appointment! I will never go back to her again! All she cares about is money!
