      After months of illness, a week at Seattle Children's Hospital with my 12 year old daughter, and several doctors unable to figure out what was wrong with her, we were so thankful when Dr. James Metz arrived and had the wisdom and knowledge to help her. He took the time to really listen to us, evaluate her symptoms and re-check test results that had been overlooked by previous doctors. We believe he saved her life! She has a long road of healing ahead of her, but thanks to Dr. Metz she now has the chance to recover and be healthy again.

      Dr. Metz did an examination on my son the morning after he was born. The doctor was warm, personable, knowledgeable and was a pleasure to work with. I would have wanted him as my son's pediatrician if he were available. I would trust him with my child's care anytime!
