How We Made The List
Seattle Met partnered with the Professional Research Services survey company to poll health care practitioners licensed by the Washington State Department of Health in King, Snohomish, Kitsap, and Pierce counties, asking, “If you or a loved one needed care, whom would you choose?” Voters nominated their most esteemed peers based on years of experience, competency, rapport with patients, patient satisfaction and compliance with care recommendations, and ability to work effectively with colleagues across specialties to deliver the best patient care. The top vote recipients were vetted with the DOH to ensure good standing before inclusion on the list, which is excerpted here alphabetically by specialty. Areas of focus—for example, a pediatrician might list “transgender care”—provide the reader with context regarding a practice but is not exhaustive. This list of Top Doctors, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners should be viewed as just one of many resources to consult when finding the best care.
