Top Doctors 2022 – Seattle Magazine (2022)

Many people have no idea how to find a doctor. They often rely on recommendations from friends or colleagues, or whomever their health system suggests. Personal referrals matter, but, in partnership with Castle Connolly, weve created a comprehensive guide of notable doctors throughout the Puget Sound area. For more than two decades, Seattle magazine has published a list of the regions top doctors. None paid to be included. All were nominated by their peers. Whether youre looking for a primary care provider or a specialist, a positive and open relationship with a doctor keeps you healthier and lowers your medical costs.

This Top Doc Takes Her Own Advice
Dr. Jennie Crews says physical activity is critical to overall health and is the most important recommendation she makes to patients

Jennie R. Crews, M.D.
Practice and hospital affiliation: Medical oncology, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and UW Medicine

Why did you pick your specialty? Oncology was my very first specialty rotation when I was a medical student. I knew immediately that it was the specialty I wanted to pursue because it involved connecting with patients and their loved ones in such a deep and meaningful way during one of the worst times of their lives. With so many advances in treatment and supportive care, it remains an exciting field of practice while still offering that personal impact I initially found so appealing.

What do you wish people knew about your specialty? I wish that people knew that oncology is about more than treating cancer. Oncology encompasses prevention, screening, treatment and support services. We provide care across a continuum and are fortunate to work with experts from many disciplines to meet our patients needs.

What is the most important healthy habit for a patient? Physical activity! If there were only one recommendation I could make to patients, it would be to stay active. Exercise helps so many areas, such as energy, sleep, mental health and physical health.

What advantages are there to practicing in the Seattle area? With biotech industries and academic powerhouses like UW and Fred Hutch/SCCA, Seattle is an area rich in innovation. The scientists and clinicians here lead the nation in advancing cancer medicine.

What question do you wish patients would ask? As patients navigate the many options that are available to them for cancer treatment, it is important for them to consider what potential outcomes and trade-offs are part of those options so that they can make decisions that are consistent with their priorities in life. I would encourage patients to share what things are important to them time with family, independence, relief from symptoms and participate in decision making with their medical team.

What do you do for your own personal wellness? I take my own advice and stay physically active. I love running and hiking.

From his days in college to today, Dr. David G. Maloney has been instrumental in developing new approaches to treating patients

David G. Maloney M.D., Ph.D.
Practice and hospital affiliation: Medical oncology, professor, clinical research division, medical director, cellular immunotherapy at the Bezos Family Immunotherapy Clinic; Leonard and Norma Klorfine endowed chair for clinical research, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center; professor of medicine, division of oncology, University of Washington School of Medicine

Why did you pick your specialty? When I was in medical school at Stanford, I started working on how to use the immune system to attack cancer. We developed a new type of treatment called monoclonal antibodies and first used this in patients for treatment of their lymphoma. We had some encouraging success, and this led to the development of many different monoclonal antibodies that are now being used in nearly all forms of cancer therapy. This experience in medical school focused my interest to the development of immune system-based treatments for cancer. Here in Seattle at Fred Hutch, this continued with new developments in bone marrow transplantation and now to the treatment of cancers with cellular immunotherapy products called CAR T cells.
What do you wish people knew about your specialty? Cancer therapy is increasingly effective for many types of cancer. It is important to be diagnosed early and to receive treatment. Cancers that once had few treatment options in the past can often now be treated with molecularly targeted new drugs or immune system-triggering agents. We are in an era of rapid change and nearly every month new treatments are emerging for many types of cancers.

What is the most important healthy habit for a patient? Try to stay physically active, in shape and engaged, eat a healthy diet and try to keep your weight under control. As much as possible it is better to prevent illness than to have to treat it.

What advantages are there to practicing in the Seattle area? We are fortunate to have close associations with cutting-edge research at Fred Hutch and UW Medicine. These institutions are translating new research from the lab to novel clinical trials in the clinic. In addition, there is a very vibrant biotech industry here providing access to new treatments and drugs. This fosters rapid advances and improvements in cancer treatment.

What question do you wish patients would ask? To ask for and encourage frank discussions on options for treatment. To ask about the pros and cons of considering clinical trials in their particular situation.

What do you do for your own personal wellness? I am an avid learner with an endless set of hobbies from electronics, guitar building, cheese making, brewing, building furniture, house remodeling and fishing. I enjoy spending quality time with my wife, family and friends. We try to spend as much time as possible in the outdoors, walking, hiking and boating.

Childhood Injuries Led to Medical Career
Several childhood injuries, starting with a broken ankle in seventh grade, thrust Dr. Christopher Cannon into the world of medicine

Dr. Christopher Cannon, M.D.
Practice and hospital affiliation: Orthopedic surgery, The Polyclinic; Swedish Orthopedic Institute

Why did you pick your specialty? Like a lot of kids, I had my fair share of childhood injuries. I broke my ankle in seventh grade and got to know my local orthopedic surgeon. We then became very well reacquainted when I tore my ACL and meniscus in high school. I was fascinated by everything from the clinic to the operating room. Once I decided to go into medicine, it was pretty much a done deal that I pursued orthopedics.

What do you wish people knew about your specialty? Even though we are surgeons, I think most of us would prefer patients try nonsurgical, conservative measures (like physical therapy, weight loss, etc.) before jumping to surgery. For most things, you can almost always operate later. You can never unoperate.

What is the most important healthy habit for a patient? Theres nothing very unique here. Keep your weight at a reasonable level and get some regular exercise.

What advantages are there to practicing in the Seattle area? There are a lot of gifted physicians in a very small area. If you, as a surgeon, need help with a complex problem, theres almost always someone nearby to help out, which makes for great patient care.

What question do you wish patients would ask? I think patients should push their doctors, whether it be an orthopedic surgeon or their primary care provider, harder for nonsurgical solutions. Nonsurgical measures are not always going to work, but its almost always best to try that first.

What do you do for your own personal wellness? Pretty much anything outside: hiking, backpacking, skiing, sea kayaking and biking. For day-to-day exercise, I will often ride an exercise bike.

Promoting Preventive Care to Improve Well-Being. And Stop Smoking Now!
Dr. Evan Yu advises patients to eat less and exercise more

Evan Yu, M.D.
Practice and hospital affiliation: Medical oncology, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center/University of Washington Medical Center

Why did you pick your specialty? Medical oncology is a field where changes are happening all the time. The biology and science melded with patient care made it the ideal choice for me. It has given me the ability to work as a clinical scientist and help improve treatments and diagnostics for the field, while implementing those changes immediately into practice to help individual patients with cancer.

What do you wish people knew about your specialty? It is one of the most well-rounded specialties in that you have the privilege of taking care of common medical maladies while also having incredibly subspecialized knowledge of biology that translates into direct clinical care. At the same time, you have the privilege of caring for patients in their most emotional moments.

What is the most important healthy habit for a patient? Quit smoking! But if you didnt smoke in the first place, couple eating less with exercise to stay slim and trim. It not only improves your cardiovascular health, but it improves cancer-specific survival.

What advantages are there to practicing in the Seattle area? We are fortunate to have one of the top five cancer centers in the world here in Seattle (my center!). I think it certainly makes practicing in Seattle attractive.

What question do you wish patients would ask? Will you share with me when you think the treatments might harm me more than benefit me?

What do you do for your own personal wellness? I hang out with my family through athletic activities, camping and even board games. On my own? Im a poker player.

Removing The Stigma of Cancer
Dr. Keith Eaton urges doctors to not blame patients

Keith D. Eaton, M.D., Ph.D.
Practice and hospital affiliation: Medical oncology, University of Washington Medical Center/Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center (previously known as Seattle Cancer Care Alliance)

Why did you pick your specialty? I was drawn to medical oncology for many reasons. I feel privileged to get to work with patients and their families during often very difficult times. Despite having a relatively narrow scope of practice primarily in lung cancer, my work presents many challenges that allow me to draw upon many different areas of medicine, which I find rewarding.

What do you wish people knew about your specialty? We see lung cancer in smokers, former smokers and never-smokers. We should strive to remove the stigma of cancer and not blame patients for their cancers.

What is the most important healthy habit for a patient? An important habit is to try to make time for enjoyable activities and socializing with family or friends.

What advantages are there to practicing in the Seattle area? I enjoy practicing medicine with an outstanding multidisciplinary team and collaborating with basic and translational researchers.

What question do you wish patients would ask? I encourage patients to understand their illness and to feel free to ask all the questions that are important to them.

What do you do for your own personal wellness? I take daily walks. I like to learn about a wide variety of nonwork-related topics through podcasts, YouTube and other media.

Helping Kids With Cancer
Dr. Julie Park has a keen focus on families

Julie Park, M.D.
Practice and hospital affiliation: Pediatric hematology/oncology, Seattle Childrens Hospital and University of Washington

Why did you pick your specialty? During my training, I was uniquely drawn to children with cancer, both because of the complexity of their clinical care and the ability to partner with a whole family in the care of the child. I was also drawn to the ability to follow these children over the course of their treatment. Finally, the specialty offers a unique, close interaction between learning about the biology of the tumor and translating that into treatment.

What do you wish people knew about your specialty? I think that most people equate having cancer with dying, and because of a collaboration of investigators across national and international borders, weve been able to improve the cure rate for children with cancer. More than two-thirds of children who are diagnosed with cancer are cured of it. Much of our treatment and studies now are really looking into how much less therapy can we give to prevent long-term side effects.

What advantages are there to practicing in the Seattle area? Seattle is known for its ability to take whats happening in the laboratory and apply it to patient care, particularly in the cancer field. So my training, through Fred Hutch, UW and Seattle Childrens, has really highlighted that and its a model that I have continued in my career.

What question do you wish patients would ask? Parents usually ask a lot of good questions, but I think for the most part, families are afraid to ask the questions about nonmedical things and how we can help them strategize to care for a patient with cancer and continue their lives. Many of these families have other children, jobs, and some even have to travel to Seattle and live here. I think families are initially hesitant to ask for that help and then to continue to ask for help throughout the time that were caring for their children.

What do you do for your own personal wellness? I garden, cook, ski and surround myself with friends and family.

Sisters Childhood Cancer Influences Doctor to Make a Difference for Families
An exposure to dedicated and compassionate doctors at a young age convinced Dr. Tyler Ketterl to pursue a career in medicine

Dr. Tyler Ketterl, M.D.
Practice and hospital affiliation: Pediatric, adolescent and young adult oncology, Seattle Childrens Hospital/University of Washington

Why did you pick your specialty? I have always been interested in science and medicine. However, my sisters childhood cancer and bone marrow transplant journey greatly influenced my decision to pursue pediatric oncology. At a young age, I was able to see how a team of dedicated and compassionate doctors, nurses and hospital support staff could greatly impact a family going through the unimaginable. I realized I wanted to pick a career and try to have a similar positive impact on families, as the doctors and nurses had on mine.
What do you wish people knew about your specialty? Pediatric, adolescent and young adult oncology is filled with so many daily examples of hope, courage and happiness that far outnumber the tough days. I get to work with some of the bravest patients and families on a daily basis. Seeing patients in clinic over three to five years after the end of treatment in remission who are doing amazing things is truly one of the best parts of my job.

What advantages are there to practicing in the Seattle area? Seattle has so many brilliant and creative scientists at leading organizations and companies that help push the envelope for what can be done to improve the outcomes for children, adolescents and young adults with cancer. What is possible in Seattle to improve cancer care is nearly limitless and the ability to translate cutting edge research to the patients bedside is truly remarkable.

What question do you wish patients would ask? What can be done for me/my child to help preserve fertility?

What do you do for your own personal wellness? I make sure to get regular exercise, regularly meet with mentors both inside and outside of work, and remember that taking time away from work and vacation have allowed me to return and address challenges with new insight and creativity.

Playing the Long Game
Dr. Thomas Takayama considers himself an investigator at heart

Thomas Takayama, M.D.
Practice and hospital affiliation: Urology, Overlake Medical Center

Why did you pick your specialty? The main reasons include versatility in treating adults, children, women and men, and that it requires both medicine and surgery.

What do you wish people knew about your specialty? A lot of men feel that slow urinary stream and/or urinary frequency is a part of aging, but it could be due to a large prostate or even prostate cancer. Urologists are able to carefully investigate and offer solutions that help people feel better and live longer, more fulfilling lives.
What is the most important healthy habit for a patient? We are in an era of longevity where people live well into their 90s. This is in part due to keeping up with regular primary care appointments, controlling blood pressure with medications or good lifestyle, and keeping tabs on cholesterol levels with statins or diet and exercise. For urinary health, it is helpful to seek urological expertise for symptoms such as slow stream, urinary frequency, urgency and waking up at night to urinate.

What advantages are there to practicing in the Seattle area? Living here, we are blessed with nature, clean air and water, and plenty of accessible outdoor activities. Our area has a vibrant international cultural scene as well as art and science opportunities. Our patients tend to be well-informed and aspire to achieve longevity through health.

What question do you wish patients would ask? Many patients ask excellent questions. The best question is asking what they can do to improve their health.

What do you do for your own personal wellness? I try to exercise daily, and I love to eat fish!

It Started With Science. It Evolved Into Personal Connections With Patients.
Dr. Vincent Picozzi Jr. says a patient once told him that the key to good health is to spend time with people who love you

Vincent Picozzi Jr., M.D.
Practice and hospital affiliation: Hematology/oncology, with a focus on pancreatic cancer, Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, section of hematology/oncology

Why did you pick your specialty? Initially, it was due to fascination with the complexity of the cancer process on many levels, from molecular thinking all the way to philosophical and societal challenges. However, as I gained experience in dealing with cancer patients and their families, I began to see it as the ability to help a person and their caregivers in a bigger way than any other I have found.

What do you wish people knew about your specialty? Its much more than simply giving chemotherapy. It encompasses the entire spectrum of care of the cancer patient from prevention and early diagnosis to managing rehabilitation, survivorship and terminal care.

What is the most important healthy habit for a patient? As I learned from a patient once, there are two: First, keep your body moving and second, spend time with people who love you.

What advantages are there to practicing in the Seattle area? I think Seattle as a whole is one of the five most sophisticated medical communities in the U.S., with overall excellent relationships among providers, even at different institutions.

What question do you wish patients would ask? Ill give you two. First, tell me more about yourself, and second, what can I do to bring more joy into my life while dealing with a terminal illness?

What do you do for your own personal wellness? Not enough! To try to find better mind, body, heart and soul balance I try to do things like read regularly outside of medicine, get regular exercise (at least on weekends), cook dinners for my family, teach adult Sunday school, listen to jazz and occasionally spend evenings in the third deck at T-Mobile Park watching the Mariners play.

Do You Happen to Like Dogs?
Any question a patient has is fair game, says Dr. Pamela Paley

Pamela Paley, M.D.
Practice and hospital affiliation: Gynecologic oncology, Overlake Medical Center & Clinics/Overlake Cancer Center

Why did you choose your specialty? At the top of the list is the privilege and honor of helping patients and their families through a very difficult and potentially life-threatening journey from a cancer diagnosis to wellness. Secondly, gynecologic oncology is a unique blend combining surgical oncology and medical oncology, and so there is always room for improvements in surgical approaches and development of new treatments, with health care providers in this field constantly learning and evolving.

What do you want people to know about your specialty? My days are never dull. I ride the highs and the lows, and theyre both critical. The best patient-doctor relationship comes from mutual trust, respect, honest dialogue and knowing Ill be there for the triumphs and the disappointments.
What is the most important healthy habit for a patient to have? For cancer survivors, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and routine examinations are keys to fighting recurrence. Women treated for cancer need to be vigilant in knowing signs and symptoms to address during their post-cancer health visits. Every patient is different and should be provided a personalized cancer treatment summary and survivorship care plan.

What advantages are there to practicing in the Seattle area? We are blessed with all the natural beauty surrounding us, combined with our strong tech economy. Thus, our area draws a large and talented pool of medical providers. The joint cancer treatment program between Overlake Cancer Center and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance offers the most technologically advanced diagnostics and treatment in the region.

What question do you wish patients would ask? Whatever is on their mind. One of my favorite questions was, Do you happen to like dogs? That launched us into sharing photos of our four-legged buddies and reassurance that she would be able to get back to playing with her dogs.

What do you do for your own personal wellness? I unwind by spending time with my family, our two pups and friends. I enjoy our regions amazing natural beauty and do as much hiking, skiing and wakeboarding as I can. I make it a priority to take at least an hour for myself each day to be physically active. I play the piano, and one of my goals this year is to dust off some old classical pieces I havent revisited in years. Wish me luck on that one!

Normal is a Moving Target With Cancer
Dr. Jason Rockhill emphasizes resiliency with patients

Jason K. Rockhill, M.D., Ph.D.
Practice and hospital affiliation: Radiation oncology, Harborview Medical Center

Why did you pick your specialty? I liked the challenge of combining the technical aspects of radiation therapy with biological complexities of cancers impact on the body.

What do you wish people knew about your specialty? All the great, intelligent, caring professionals whose skills are behind the scenes but are essential to developing the best radiation plan for a patient. They are medical physicists, dosimetrists, simulation technicians and radiation therapists.

What is the most important healthy habit for a patient? Practicing resiliency and finding a supportive environment. Normal is a moving target with cancer and it takes a great deal of resiliency to keep up with the changes in your body related to the cancer itself and also to treatment effects.

What advantages are there to practicing in the Seattle area? The incredible breadth and depth of truly wonderful people trying to improve cancer care.

What question do you wish patients would ask? I like it when patients ask what would I do regarding a certain treatment? It often leads to a deeper conversation about how everyone approaches their illness differently and how life experiences would impact those decisions. I often have a better understanding of the complete individual when we have those conversations, even though they may be very difficult.

What do you do for your own personal wellness? I am very blessed to have an incredibly supportive network of friends and family. I try to get out and take in nature as often as possible.
