Dr. Symons has been my son's nephrologist since he was first diagnosed with chronic kidney disease at age 2. That was 10 years ago, and my son is a thriving, healthy, active 12-year-old today who never dreads his twice-yearly visit to Children's. Dr. Symons has a wonderful bedside manner with both kids and parents, and really takes the time to make sure all your questions are answered and that you understand everything. You never feel rushed during appointments and his entire team is just wonderful. We consider them all part of the family!

Dr. Symons is the most caring, thorough, professional, and supportive physician I have met. He took the time and had the patience to help us understand our son's kidney condition before he was even born. We are grateful for his insight.
AmberBothell, WA08.25.11
He has been so patient in going through with us the basics and tune us onto more serious things about Nephrotic Syndrome. He is the guy to go to if it is your first time. He has a the time and patience in the world for you to get through this hard time. The staff is wonderful and very much on quick response. He called me personally to find out how my daughter( who just turned two) is doing. I dont see many doctors do that. It feels human to be connected with such a wonderful caring person.
