I appreciate Dr. LaSalle's no nonsense approach. He is detailed, organized, and doesn't waste time. I was a bit startled in our first visit about how honest and straight forward he is, but I find it refreshing. I know that he is getting to the cause and not wasting my time on chasing paths that he doesn't believe fit my symptoms. He was kind, informative, and willing to answer questions whenever they came up.

I just adore all of the staff at Arthritis Northwest. Dr. LaSalle takes such good care of me and the infusion staff is amazing. If you are in need of a Rheumatologist this is the best place to go.

There’s so many weird stories with him I can’t even fit all on here lol I have a somewhat rare condition that most falls under the scope of Rheumatology.. At first we weren’t sure which health condition it was, so he put me through all of these tests that I told him I had already done before. But he refused to listed and instead scolded me for questioning him. Then when all 3 of my other specialists figured out what condition I had they told me to tell my Rheumatologist. But Dr LaSalle said he had never even heard of it. So I tried to transfer to one of the other Doctors there but it needs approved by both and LaSalle denied the transfer but said I could at least still continue care with him haha why would I? I never went back, and found an incredible Dr elsewhere. I didn’t want to write this but I don’t want any of you to have to go through all that I did with him. You all deserve better than this. Best of luck to you all!

My recent visit was with Dr LaSalle’s “assistant”. I made sure to be on time as patients are charged or appointments canceled if you are late. After being led into the room the nurse took my bp and the reading was 190/90. I asked her to take it again as that was insane. Again it was about the same. I asked her if she wanted me to do it. She finally got it right. After she left I sat in the room 90 minutes waiting for the assistant to see me. When she finally arrived her excuse was that someone had come early so she took her as she was from out of town and thought she would have enough time before my appt. I drove from Idaho to WA for my appt. was on time and had to wait 90 min. And this assistant didn’t even do or look at anything as she was so far behind. It was a waste of my whole day my gas my parking charge and my $40 deductible. This is the WORST Rheumatology office I’ve ever been in. The Dr isn’t any better. I would suggest you go elsewhere. They aren’t there to help you.

Dr. Lasalle listened to me and talked through everything with me making sure I understood. I left feeling confident that I was heard and he knew what he was talking about and what the best next step was. He did jump around from topic to topic a bit but it made sense to me.

Do not go see this doctor unless you enjoy leaving unheard, with none of your concerns addressed And any ideas you have about your health or body completely dismissed. He won't take his time to address the issues you have, just enjoys writing prescriptions for temporary fixes instead of conscience doctoring and trying to find long term solutions.

Arrogant and talks down to you. Will not allow you to ask or discuss anything that doesn't conform to what he has already said to you.
