What People Say About Dr. Sean Lasalle, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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.
