Liz Pearce @LCM (fellow Cap Hill mom) could be a great option for a physician - I know she has a lot of senior patients. (Linda, correct me if I'm wrong :)
Liz Pearce Also @sdossick just recommended a dentist this morning (Dr. Richard Stickney) that sounds great!

Meredith Fife Hi Melinda, I can totally relate. I hate the dentist and I'm still searching for that special someone to help me with all my hopes and fears. My last dentist drilled down on a root canal before I was numb and sent my body through the ceiling. So, I too am interested in this topic. Here is what I have learned:

I know that Innovative Dentistry used to have a therapy dog that helped out around the office for people like us, however, the dog retired with his owner a year or two ago. The office still tries to meet the demand of patients with anxiety by using nitrous oxide, weighted blankets, and other tools.

Fidler on the Tooth (what a great name right?) has some great recommendations on Fresh Chalk and their website talks specifically about helping patients with anxiety. They work with you on a plan of attack to help keep you calm during those nerve-racking times. I like that idea-- hand signals can really be helpful.

Lastly, Pacific Modern Dentistry works specifically with patients who have anxiety. I’m not sure what methods and tools they use that are different from the other places, but I think their office picture looks calming and a place that I could relax. That counts for something, right? Good luck.
Adam Doppelt A close friend of mine is an anxious dental patient and often avoids going for that reason. I set her up with my dentist, Dr. Russell, and they've been very understanding. Now she gets her teeth cleaned regularly and we all declared success.
Amy Woidtke Thank you. I am the classic white knuckle patient. Thankfully I respond well to nitrous but I'm still freaking out. Grateful for these referrrals. I have been going to PIMA dental school and they have been great with the dental anxiety however it does take longer than a standard appointment so I look forward to these other options!

Adam Doppelt Shannon's whole family has thyroid issues, unfortunately... You need to see Dr. Shannon Heitritter at Polyclinic. She's quite good.
Leslie Feinzaig My uncle is the former president of the American Endocrine Association and he recommended I see Dr. Tylee. I've been seeing her for years for my thyroid. She's excellent. uwmedicine.org/bios/tracy-t...

Sima Kahn I have had a good experience with Sound Options, and the client was in the south sound region. If you mean the south end of Seattle, I also like With a Little Help. I hope one of those works!
Della Glein Thank you! I'll check them out. I'm really looking for something in the Auburn area, but I'll see if they serve that area. Thank you for the tip on employee vs contractors.
Shannon Garbaccio Here is another option - Eldercare Navigators eldercarenavigators.com. Heather is an amazing, knowledgeable and compassionate person. She has a wealth of information and resources to help people navigate the system. She can help with the smallest to the largest needs!
