Patient Reviews
Nov 02, 2019
Dr. Kowdley was fantastic - very knowledgeable and helpful. I have Hemochromatosis and he is one of the rare doctors who knows a lot about this and can offer good advice and perspective. I understand that he is no longer doing direct patient care and will be focusing on research for a while, which is a real loss to me. As another patient has noted, however, the staff at Swedish Liver Center is non-responsive to the extreme. After they notified of Dr. Kowdley's departure and invited me to contact them for a referral to another provider, I reached out 4 times -- 2 voice messages, 2 emails on the patient portal. Nothing. So my advice: steer clear of Swedish Liver Center, but if Dr. Kowdley comes back (or is available at another facility) try to see him.
