"We hired Sima while trying to navigate through the Cardiac maze for my father's bypass surgery. She was a huge relief through the entire process. Her help through discovery, interviews, selection, preparation, hospital care, and home care gave our family the energy we needed to focus on Dad. She was extremely knowledgeable and her deep network of experts was reassuring. We'd strongly recommend Sima to help your family with any medical concerns."
--A.M. (son of 65 year old cardiac patient)
"I called Sima and she made time in her schedule to meet with me immediately. I felt better the minute we started talking about my diagnosis and all the decisions that needed to be made. She walked me through everything. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to have her expert advice. She answered all my questions and helped me understand what all the test results meant. She is going to come with me and (husband) to my meeting with my breast cancer team. She is very familiar with Virginia Mason and assured me that I would receive excellent care there."
--G. C. (breast cancer survivor)
"At this stage, with my husband's advice, I sought help from an advocate, an experienced physician, Dr. Sima Kahn. After a consultation, she contacted my physician, who very willingly cooperated and sent my complete records including the specialist's reports. Dr. Kahn helped me navigate and interpret the tests and diagnosis, and then recommended possible choices. I would highly recommend Dr. Sima Kahn who is a highly competent and experienced medical specialist whose warmth and compassion gave me the security I needed. My husband and I felt we had gone that extra mile to find out the best way to recover my health."
