Only Forum member I know who lives in Seattle is Barb (Barb909) - although there may be others here.

You may want to PM her and see what docs she's seen in your area.

I don't actually "make" trouble..just kind of attract it, fine tune it, and apply it in new and exciting ways

I am a patient of Dr. Ferrera,  I had a 4.4 cm tumor that he removed and no facial paralysis or loss of hearing.   My hearing was at 50% before surgery and still the same after surgery.   Dr. Ferrera replied to any questions I had within 24 hours.   Not only is he personable and caring he is also a wonderful surgeon.  I am truly honored that I had him as "my surgeon"

He is my dr.  I was originally at Group health and did not like the dr.  A friend who was graduating from the UW recommended him and I changed insurance so I could see him.  I'm very glad I did.  He has a "round table" approach.  He met me then I met a Gamma knife guy, then Dr. Rubinstein the ENT surgeon.  After I went back and talked to him again (all in the same day).

He later pushed me to meet with the ENT again and a month later I have a BAHA post installed.  I'm still "Wait and See" but I've only had good reactions with him (after seeing doctors at GH and Virginia Mason).  Plus, UWMC/Harborview is pretty world renowned for medicine.
