Sue answers questions about insurance and billing.

Medical Staff

Meritt, Jillian, Victoria and Vicki (not pictured) are medical assistants. They will set you up in the exam room, check your medication list, weight, and blood pressure. They also may draw blood and do EKGs.

The medical assistants have more than 20 years of combined experience. They arrange for tests done outside the office, schedule consults, do referrals and med refills. They will also return your phone calls to collect more information and relay a plan back to you from the provider.


Physician Billing Partners does the billing, and checks the clarity, promptness, and accuracy of the bills to ensure that you get the coverage you have paid for. Call them at 206-932-9025, if you have questions about your bill. Or talk to Sue in our office.
