  • I have found them to be extremely convenient and proficient. I have been going there for around five years. I like the clinic as a whole because everything you need is at the same site and generally you can have it done without making a second appointment. They have a great online report of all of your exams and appointments. It also allows you to communicate online with the doctors.

  • My main issue is that I was told my results would be sent to my doctor the next afternoon (April 2). When I checked with my doctor on April 3 they had not arrived. I called South Sound again on April 10 and was told the doctor had been on call and had not had time to review my results but would and quot;next weekand quot;.

  • I have had a Medicare Advantage Plan with Group Health for several years after having had traditional Medicare and an Aetna supplemental plan. I wish I had changed to Group Health a long time ago for a very long list of reasons. GH offers the best method of patient care delivery I have seen. Here is what I've especially appreciated:
    -In choosing a doctor, I received bios on about a dozen primary care doctors who were all taking new patients. I selected the doctor that I thought was the best fit for me. I've been happy with my choice, but if I hadn't been, I could select a different one. All GH patients have a and quot;medical homeand quot; which includes the primary care doctor, as well as several other doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. If I need to seek care on short notice, one of those practitioners will see me if my own doctor's schedule is full. I have seen several practitioners in my and quot;medical homeand quot; over the years, they all have access to my electronic medical records. Each one has been friendly, conscientious, and capable. I've never felt rushed, and have always been happy with the care received.
    -GH has an Urgent Care Clinic operating daily after hours and on weekends which saved me 2 trips to the emergency room for a simple fracture, and an earache after hours. And they have a 24/7 consulting nurse you can call when in doubt about what to do.
    -I'm paying far less in monthly premiums for my GH Advantage plan than I was for the Aetna Supplemental Plan, and receiving far better care. GH has been well ahead of conventional practitioners in developing new and more effective ways to provide quality, affordable health care. Most of the services I've needed have been provided right at the Olympia clinic location (lab, x-ray, prescriptions, specialist’s consult, etc.) which is a real convenience for me.
    -GH’s website a special convenience. I can e-mail my doctor, order medication refills, schedule appointments, and get results for lab and x-ray tests, etc.
    And, lastly, I like the fact GH is a non-profit cooperative, organized in Seattle in 1946. Doctors are on salary and have no financial incentive to do unnecessary procedures.
    -I'm a retired RN. I'd say this is the best method of medical care delivery I've ever seen. GH is ranked near the top in the nation in terms of the quality of their Medicare plans. They are recognized leaders in terms of seeking innovative ways to improve delivery of care for patients of all ages.

  • It was an awful experience. When I went in for the procedure, the doctor decided she wanted to keep me “as alert as possible” through it. I expressed concerns about this approach. She assured me I would be kept comfortable. I wasn’t, to the point that every night for ten days thereafter I woke up at 3 or 4 in the morning with nightmares and reliving the worst parts of the procedure (in contrast to everyone else I know who has had a colonoscopy, none of whom even remember the procedure).
    When I wrote to Gastroenterology Associates to express how upset I was, I received a reply that stated in part, “You always have the choice to decline or stop a procedure. You did not indicate to the nurses or Dr. Wagner that you did not want the procedure and/or that you wanted it stopped.” No, I went ahead based on the reassurance I would be kept comfortable. Apparently though, as I was lying on the procedure table with an IV in my arm, partially sedated, and a tube several feet up me, according to Gastroenterology Associates, when it got really bad I could have just got up and walked out. How realistic, let alone how caring, is that? What I stated above is an exact quote that I have in writing in their letter. Decide for yourself if a medical group that responds like that to putting someone through a nightmarish experience is the medical team you want doing your colonoscopy.

  • She is with South Sound Internal Medicine. She is pretty thorough. I am rather pleased with her. She is good about getting back to me with test results and stuff. She will call me the day she gets the test result and she will tell me what they are and they are also hooked with Providence, Epic, and Peter system. So, all the doctors that participate, all the clinics that participate in this Epic system that Providence have subscribed to, they can all access our information that goes into their mychart.com. That is really advantageous for anybody that we work with through those providers because they don't have to call our providers and get the information and have it faxed over to them, it is already in the computer, which is really convenient for the doctors.

  • The procedure was performed in the doctors office.  He was assisted by one of his staff and it was done in an excellent manner.  The written pre-procedure instructions were clear and helpful and I had no problem in following them. I was informed along the way as to what to expect next and experienced no surprises (except that it was easier than I was expecting).  The procedure was performed with care and expertise.  I experienced no pain and only slight pressure from the equipment used.  The process seemed to go quicker and smoother than I expected and any anxiety that I had quickly subsided.  While the results of the biopsy were not what I wanted to hear, the process was well handled by the doctor and his staff.
    As an aside, when I had a second opinion consultation with a well regarded Seattle based medical center, the doctor there said that the anomaly that Dr. Ellen had discovered on my prostate was very subtle and that Dr. Ellen was very expert in finding it (they also concurred with his findings).

  • I first went to them because they are an in-network provider for my insurance.  Their appointments are on time, they are very friendly and easy to deal with.  I am pleased with my care and I will continue to go back to Ear, Nose & Throat Associates.

  • I was referred to Dr Bina Souri from an emergency clinic when I had to call out sick from work due to abdominal pain from my menstrual. 
    The Drs office got me in quickly and the Dr herself spent a LOT of time with me on my first visit. I actually went into her office and we talked about my medical history, extensively, as in we were in her office for over an hour before she did her first exam on me. This is UNHEARD OF!! The doctor stated she likes to spend time with her patients to make sure they are getting the best medical care she can give, and that my history required a bit more time then even she usually gives her first patients. (This at times is also her down-fall, because she does spend time with her patients, she is always running late, you just learn to deal with it.)
    Due to my history and length of issues, she sent me for an ultrasound the next day. 
    The doctor never speculates on what she might find, she goes off of facts, but is also very progressive and studies new techniques and information when it comes out, which makes her a very solid doctor! (I am in the emergency medical field myself, so I do recognize this quality as a great one!) 
    The doctor found my issue and told me I would need to go into surgery as soon as i could get in. 
    It was scheduled for the next week and she performed the surgery herself and explained everything she was going to do, even her backup plans should something not go perfectly. (Which was great!) 
    The surgery ended up going quite a bit longer then expected, I had a lot more damage then she thought I would have, but that was not an error on her part. 
    She sat with my family while I was in recovery and explained everything that happened and why, and went over the next steps with them. (I will need to go in for another surgery.) 
    All in all, I have multiple family members in the medical field, including myself - I would recommend this doctor, AND HAVE, to every woman I see! My family was, and is, also very impressed with her, and trust her completely. 

    I highly recommend Dr Bina Souri for all female medical needs!!

    Thank you Dr Bina Souri for the excellent service you have provided.

  • This is a small clinic with a sole provider. He has an onsite licensed lab so no side trips for lab work. He is very flexible in scheduling appointment. He takes more time with his patients than any other physician that I have previously visited.

  • It is very convenient because everything is there; all of the specialists, doctors, and labs..They have a 24/7 consulting nurse that you can call. They also have urgent care that you can visit on a daily basis through the late hours of the night where the copay is the same and you can get in to see a doctor.   It is an HMO. I think it is very good for simple medical needs, but if you need something larger you do have to get it approved. My father had a problem with hand and by the time he saw a specilaist, it was too late and he lost the mobility in some of his fingers.
