Dr. Inglis is the best! My daughter suffered from an ear infection for 4 -5 months that would just not clear up despite multiple antibiotic treatments. There was so much goop in a her ear that no doctor could see what was going on with her ear drums and inner ear. I went to two other doctors in the area and both wanted to to put my daughter under Anesthesia just to clean out her ear and see what was doing on. Since my daughter was only 8-9 months old at that time, I was very hesitant to use Anesthesia on my daughter to just clean her ear for diagnosis. Dr. Inglis was the only doctor who understood my concerns over anesthesia and agreed to patiently clean out my screaming toddler's ear twice a week ( for 3 weeks) to finally diagnose that she had a fungal infection. Dr. Inglis was fantastic and patient with us throughout her treatment. He is one of the best I have seen. If you really want to be seen by a doctor who cares for your concerns, he is the one to go to...

We flew from San Diego, CA to Seattle Children's to have Dr. Inglis perform a surgical procedure on my daughter that doctor's here were unable to do. My daughter has Bilateral Vocal Cord Paralysis and was trach dependent since birth. She had the operation when she was 6 and it completely changed her/our lives. She did not need to have a nurse with her 24/7, she was able to attend "regular" school/community programs, and I no longer had to fear that her trach would become dislodged and she would suffocate. We can never express our gratitude and the impact that Dr. Inglis had on our family. Thank you Dr. Inglis!

Dr. Inglis has seen me since I was a baby...My parents talk about him as if he is a saint. I have had extensive surgery and have been told I can speak because of him. My dad won't allow any other Doctor to see me as long as Dr. Inglis is on this planet. He has made my life better!

I have seen Dr. Inglis since I was a baby and truly believe that if it was not for him I would not be alive today. Some of my earliest memories include Dr. Inglis performing his pre-surgery consultation with a clown noise on. He always tried to make me laugh and even took in stride my anger later in my teenage years. He became regarded as family with my mom and explained to her in great detail what was happening. He was always there with information, compassion and a shoulder to cry on. After almost twenty years of care it was a sad to to know that as an adult I can no longer see him. He will always hold a fond place in my heart and I would highly recommend him to any family seeking care.

My son has seen Dr. Inglis since he was just a baby. If it wasn't for his compassion and his immense knowledge he wouldn't be with us today. Dr. Inglis will answer any concerns and work with you on the simplest to the most difficult areas of your child's health. There isn't many doctors that play and sing to there patients, but he does!
