Top-Ranked Doctors Providing High-Quality Care

Washington Permanente Medical Group doctors are regularly voted by their peers as the top doctors in the region. Many have training from the nation's top medical schools and many have national reputations in their fields. They could practice anywhere, but they choose to practice at Kaiser Permanente.

One of the reasons is that at Kaiser Permanente, they can focus on what they got into medicine to do — to help patients live healthier, better lives. Our doctors are paid salaries to do what's best for their patients, not what makes them more money or boosts corporate profits.

Easy Access and Convenience

One-stop shopping. All of our clinical facilities have pharmacies and most of them offer a variety of specialty services, so in one visit under one roof you can get an exam, have lab work done, get an X-ray taken, fill a prescription, and schedule a follow-up visit with a specialist. All with minimal waiting and paperwork.

Online services. While all members have access to our Kaiser Permanente member website, if you get your care at Kaiser Permanente medical offices we are able to offer you more of our most compelling online services: e-mailing your doctor, refilling prescriptions; viewing your lab results, visit summaries, and other medical records; and scheduling appointments — all from the convenience of your home, office or while you're traveling 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Same-day appointments. Call your doctor's office in the morning and there's a good chance you can see your physician or another member of your medical team that very day.

Self-referral to specialists. You can schedule consultations with most Kaiser Permanente specialists without a referral from your personal physician. Consultations with contracted specialists require a referral from your personal physician.

Seamless Coordinated Care

Everyone on your health care team — family doctor, nurses, lab techs, pharmacists, and specialists — is working together to make sure you get the best care possible. They are in close and constant communication with each other, so they're all on the same page — literally. They all have access to your electronic medical records at the click of a mouse, so they can see at a glance what conditions, symptoms or tests you've had or what drugs you're allergic to. They don't ask you the same questions over and over, and they don't order duplicate tests or, worse, drugs that might interact with each other.

Our coordinated, collaborative and patient-centered model of care — called the "medical home" — is getting national attention as a way to ensure better health at a lower cost so health care remains affordable for all of us.
