Professional Statement

As a Seattle native and a second-generation physician, I opened my practice 14 years ago. As a child I saw my father, also an otolaryngologist, strive to provide expert and personal medical care to the Seattle area. Impressed by my father’s dedication and commitment to helping people I followed him into the world of medicine determined to provide the best care possible. My philosophy is that listening is the key to good communication. Truly understanding a patient’s needs develops a strong and caring bond between patient and doctor. In my practice you are not just a number and your concerns are treated with the respect they deserve.

Dr. Rockwell made me feel comfortable instantly and resolved an excess earwax issue that was bothering me for years. After trying different methods that were either ineffective or painful, I finally got relief within 10 minutes of Dr. Rockwell looking at my ear and suctioning the wax out. Worth going to a professional! Plus, he was incredibly kind and educated me on how to prevent future issues. His receptionist was a sweetheart and my entire visit took less than 30 minutes. Impressive. Highly recommend using Dr. Rockwell if you need an ENT.

I am new to the Seattle area and found Dr. Rockwell and chose him based on other patient reviews. I'm glad I did. My idea of going to the ear Dr. is not always a positive one but Dr. Rockwell changed that. He immediately put me at ease, made me laugh and took good care of me! My visit made me feel like I had been transported back in time when Drs. took their time and made you feel like a real person, not just another appointment! I highly recommend Dr. Rockwell for any issues relating to ear, nose or throat.

The visit was great & Dr. Rockwell was amazing. The only issue was that the receptionist forgot to check ZocDoc, so my appointment was never added to their paper schedule. They were still able to squeeze me in and all my needs were addressed.

Dr. Rockwell is very knowledgeable and yet can relay the medical diagnosis to layman's terms. He listens and takes the time to engage with the patient. There was no beating around the bush on things. He is on point and honest, which I like, and so rarely see anymore in the Medical field.

I was pretty late to my appointment and the receptionist was gracious and got me in quickly. Dr. Rockwell was quick, no nonsense but has a great sense of humor. Instead of a million extra tests he gave me some suggestions of over the counter stuff to try first. A really great visit!

Both my kid and I had ear issues resolved by Dr. Rockwell. Unlike many doctors, he wants you to leave understanding how your body works, your condition, and how to make it better. He's also great with kids.

My appointment with Dr. Rockwell was exemplary. Vicky, the receptionist was very helpful, understanding, and kind. She made the extraordinary effort to secure my necessary referral for which I appreciate very much. Dr. Rockwell is certainly an outstanding medical professional. He is likewise sincere and compassionate. I am 77 years old with severe sinus problems. After viewing my sinus MRI, Dr. Rockwell recommended medical therapy for elimination of nasal polyps. Dr. Rockwell explained the prescribed plan to my wife, son, and me. I am both glad and thankful for Dr. Rockwell`s plan. Hopefully medical therapy will spare me the risk, pain, and possibility of complications associated with sinus surgery. Sincerely, Dozier

Dr. Rockwell is personable and diligent. He took his time to investigate my medical issue and to explain the possibilities and related treatment options. It was clearly important to him that I understood all of these. Dr. Rockwell recommended the most non-invasive course of action, escalating only if necessary. The entire experience was fantastic!
