    Group Health Capitol Hill Campus South Specialty Center

  • Timothy Scearce, MD

    "I am honored to be entrusted with the care of each patient I see. I want them to experience the kind of medical care I would want for myself or my family. That is why I review the charts of each patient I see several days ahead of time. I make sure each patient has had a chance to tell me everything they feel I should know about their concerns and, at the end of the visit, I provide them with a personally typed note summarizing the diagnosis and plan we discussed during our visit."
