Went in with a very painful sore throat, that had persistd 7 days and not improving. The doctor was great. discussed the possibity of strep. throat, was not sure. It was a Friday and I was scheduled to leave for a conference on Sunday. The doctor was preparing to go out of town the next day. Doctor recommended throat culture that would be read on Saturday by Saturday staff. Gave Strep antibiotic injection to start treatment, I was to call on Saturday to speak with nurse regarding results. If negative , I was to come in for further testing. .I called the Nurse on Saturday, she had opted not to set up the culture on Friday, because the doctor had given me the Stept. injection. She was adament I had strept because the doctor treated me for Strept Throat.
My throat was still very painful, the injection had not helped at all. With out the culture result, strept could not be confirmed, I was to leave for a very important conference and my throat was killing me. I went to my old private physician in Gig Harbor, which required out of pocket expense,as not on my company insurance plan. I was diagnosed with an overgrowth of yeast (trench mouth). Appropriate treatment was started, I got relief from the pain and was able to make the conference in good shape.
I wrote a letter to my primary doctor at Valley Medical Center at Covington, Outlining the above. The doctor nor the staff even bothered to contact me. DO NOT RISK YOUR HEALTH, POORLY RUN FACILITY AND RISKY STAFF MANAGEMENT.

My wife went to Valley Medical Center on Oct 15, 2009. Our son had a fever for 2 days and complained about his ear hurting. My wife and son were there for several hours in the evening until they were finally seen. The doctor checked my son out and gave a clean bill of health. That evening my son still had a fever all night and we could not bring it back down. It stayed around 101 F all night. The next morning my wife took my son into Multi-care of Covington for a second opinion and said he had such a massive ear infection that it looks like he ruptured his ear drum. There was actual blood coming from his ear the days we took him in. We are so upset at Valley Medical Center of Covington for missing this easy diagnoses. It was our FIRST AND LAST TIME EVER GOING THERE. DO NOT GAMBLE YOUR HEALTH AND GO HERE !!

These are very nice doctors. The whole office has a nice feeling, it's very welcoming. I feel very comfortable with the staff here and especially the doctors. They have taken very good care of me when I was sick. It's very easy to make appointments with them, they can always get me in when I need to be seen. It's also very easy to find.
