Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Zook is amazing! Always takes the time to address all of my concerns and offers the best treatment and results! Highly recommend!!
Dr Zook is excellent! She explains all available options for procedures. Her and her staff always has made me feel very welcomed and well cared for.
Amazing, she listened to everything I told her and helped me to finally get a diagnosis on something when other doctors were unwilling to help. I saw her for something specific but it was a symptom of the bigger issue which she was the first to identify. I can't be more grateful for finding Dr. Zook.
First time to a Dermatologist, felt completely comfortable the whole time.
Dr.Zook was very informative and helpful. She listed several different options to help my acne. She was very friendly and took the time to get to know me.
Dr. Zook is the best. She is a great listener, gets a ton done in every appointment, super helpful. I have seen her for a range of different problems, and I would recommend her to anyone, for any skin issue.
No complaints. She is smart, determined to solve my problem and seemed to care about helping me. Hope what she prescribes works.
I really appreciated the friendly approach and casual discussion to the baseline exam. Excellent office and staff!
It was an excellent appointment with a remarkable doctor.
Answered all my many questions with recommendations. I feel very comfortable and feel Dr. Zook is very thorough in her examinations.
As always Dr. Zook is cordial, professional, and explains everything in detail.
Her "bedside" manner is extraordinary, professionalism and warmth cannot be beat, she is knowledgeable, did an amazing job removing melanoma with minimal scarring - she is absolutely the best and most trustworthy.
Dr Zook performed a minor surgery for me and it heals very quickly, thanks Dr. Zook!
Very personable. Didn't lecture me on my sun exposure habits, just recommended using sun screen.
Dr. Zook is very professional, the clinic is very modern and accommodating. She treated my symptoms well, which my previous doctors weren't able to. I would highly recommend Dr. Zook for treatment of any skin conditions.
As always, Dr. Zook was the perfect mix of personal and professional. Ditto with her entire office and nursing staff -- from front desk and onward. Her office is warm, inviting, immaculate and comfortable. Coffee is excellent!!! She handled my problem quickly, putting me at ease immediately. I can't imagine having any other dermatologist handle my concerns. First rate!!
My visit went like clockwork. Arrived on time to fill out the paperwork, was seen immediately, and only waited maybe 5 minutes for the doctor to come in. Dr. Zook was professional, courteous and informative.
She is so friendly and personable!
Good listener and offered multiple options of care. Highly recommend.
Dr. Zook is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She answered all of my questions and addressed all of my skin concerns.
So happy with the improvement in my acne thanks to the creams from Dr. Zook!
Dr. Zook is warm, kind and communicates well with her patients. She and her staff make it a point to give you their full attention. She is not convenient to our home, but it’s worth the trip because of the quality of her advice. Also, we think her new office is posh.
Superb as usual
Dr. Zook is fantastic. She described everything in a way I could understand. The instructions for treatment were easy to follow and the medication was reasonably priced. Overall a great experience.
Dr. Zook provided excellent service.
Dr. Zook is my regular dermatologist. However, Zocdoc is too busy with reminders.
Amazing! I've been struggling with hormonal acne for over a year and Dr. Zook gave me new creams to try and within days they began working and my skin is looking 100% better. Highlh recommended!
I've seen Paula for many years and have followed her wherever she's practiced. She's awesome.
Dr. Zook is always courteous, patient, and thorough with her visits. Love the new office and the staff is very nice. Never felt rushed.
She was very nice and thorough!!
Office is beautiful, comfortable, I was seen right away. Dr. Zook gave me a skin check, which was good, but was unable to refer me to another doctor who could help me with a skin-related cognitive disorder. Wish she had a larger network.
Dr. Zook and her staff were great. Perosonable yet professional. Appointment was efficient and infekt very comfortable.
Been with Paula for years. Love her.
Once again Paula spotted a little something I would never have seen. It's nice to have confidence that if anything isn't as it should be, she knows it the minute she sees it, and can correct the situation easily and quickly. Great doc!
Amazing offices, fast and professional service. Would highly recommend.
A beautiful space easy access friendly staff a favorite doctor
I've been a patient of Dr Zook for 6 years. She is always so good with patients, explanations, manner, etc. She is extremely knowledgable and efficient. Her new office with Spectrum is great! It is new and a really great staff. No waiting.
Dr Zook is the best! Worth the wait, great bedside manner, very knowledgeable!
Dr. Zook and her staff were extremely welcoming. She made it a point to explain what she saw and was looking for. I recommended her to friends and family.
She was great. I loved that she clearly explained her diagnosis and provided me with a clear understanding of all treatment options available to me.
Professional and respectful of my time. Thank you for your expertise Dr. Zook.
Best dermatologist in Seattle!!
Ery informative.great demeanor. Quick and efficient but not rushed.
Dr. Zook has an excellent bedside manner! She is always very patient answering questions, and thorough. Dr. Zook walks you through each procedure, so you know exactly what is happening, and explains follow up care well. Everybody at the front desk is friendly and helpful!
I saw Dr. Zook initially at her previous clinic. Excited she has opened up her own clinic and I'm thrilled to support her new business. Also excited to learn she takes my insurance for medical derm appointments.
Dr. Zook was a wonderful doctor and really took the time to listen to me and make me feel comfortable; I did not feel rushed at all. She was very thorough with her examination and diagnosis, and I was very satisfied with her as well as her staff. The only complaint is that when I called the office to try to modify an appointment I made online, I was put on hold for 25 minutes. They called me back the following day and of course I missed the call. However, this time when I called back, I was only put on hold for 5 minutes. My advice: save their number on your phone so you do not miss any of their calls because the last thing you want is to be put on hold by her operator.
Dr. Zook and Young's Spectrum Dermatology clinic created a nice experience for my skin check. Her staff was very professional and Dr. Zook is a wonderful clinician with great bedside manner. Overall I would highly recommend Dr. Zook!
Dr. Zoom is amazing! She spent a very long time asking me questions about my skin, any concerns or questions that I had, and didn't start my skin exam until she was sure that I didn't have any more concerns.
Paula Zook is professional, caring, and pleasant. I have recommended her to friends and family seeking dermatological care.
A wonderful office/atmosphere. Very friendly and professional staff. Keep up the good work!!
My visit with Dr. Zook was an enjoyable experience. She is very professional, knowledgeable, and an expert in her field. I highly recommend Dr. Zook. Nancy R
She is the BEST and so is Melanie!
Even with a scheduling error for my new patient appointment, Dr. Zook was gracious and friendly, took time to explain about my autoimmune disease and treatment ahead.
Very professional and knowledgeable.
Paula is amazing!
Paula was kind, helpful and comforting. Asked great questions and had a response to every inquiry I had. Highly reccomend.
Fantastic medical provider. Very polite, caring and knowledgeable. 100% recommend this provoder
Dr. Zook was very friendly and informative. I had to have a small procedure done in the office, and she was very efficient and also explained to me everything she was doing. I will definitely be returning to Dr. Zook in the future.
I had never been to a dermatologist before, so was a little nervous because I had a wart and a suspicious mole. She was able to explain to me my options well and removed both of them right then. The mole removal was completely painless and she did it very quickly after removing the wart (which was more painful, but quick). Overall, despite what she had to do, it was a good experience.
She was great, she understood the problem very quickly and gave me an adaptated treatment.
She's great! Super informative and friendly!
She was very kind and professional.
Super professional, very knowledgable, great bedside manner and very thourough! I am delighted to have found a derm that actually knows her way around a patient with psoriasis! I left with two new rx's a referral to a good rheumatologist for psoriatic arthritis AND HOPE!! That right there says it all!!!
friendly, relaxed yet very professional
No wait at all, helpful and friendly employees, quick and professional service, didn't feel rushed when asking questions, highly recommend!
Dr. Zook is great, very accommodating and responsive.
It was a great appointment - always nervous about visiting someone new, but they were efficient, respectful, friendly and informative.
Overall, very happy. Was able to fill out forms online, no wait, got called right away. Dr. Zook was very friendly and professional. She asked a lot of questions and took a very close look at my skin. Thank you!
Dr. Zook is always professional and friendly.
Wasted my money
I really appreciated her desire to make sure that I was happy with my results. She wanted to make sure that I felt good and I'm sure would have had some solutions to offer if I wasn't satisfied, but I was :)
Dr Zook is AWESOME and I wouldn't go to anyone else- she really is the BEST!!
I was very comfortable with Paula, and she took care of my issue immediately. I was worried going into the appointment, but it was quick and easy and I'm so happy I went in.
Super efficient and to the point, while still getting all my concerns addressed.
This was my 3rd visit with Dr. Zook. As before, I was seen promptly. Dr. Zook is professional and efficient while also being warm and friendly. As before, after she addressed the issue I cam in for she asked if I had any questions or if there was anything else I needed. I definitely recommend her.
Dr. Zook was attentive and listened to my long list of questions, and took the time to address all of them. She also suggested multiple treatment options for an ongoing skin condition. Highly recommend.
professional and thorough
Dr. Zook was very helpful and informative.
Kind & helpful
They saw me right away and the doctor was friendly and informative!
Smart, no-nonsense, thorough, sense of humor thank god!
Fantastic! Skilled. Professional.
Dr. Zook was very pleasant, professional and efficient. I would definitely recommend.
Dr. Zook is the best - I really have a lot of confidence in her and feel more comfortable with her than with most practitioners I see. I looked at my previous reviews and noticed that one of them in 4.5 stars - that must have been a mistake on my part because I've always meant to give her 5 stars.
Dr. Zook is great, highly recommended.
Dr. Zook was very thorough in her exam and really asked what I was concerned about. I left the encounter feeling like I had left everything on the table.
Very quick in and out! I was terrified coming in for my appointment. She was reassuring, professional, fast and thorough. She explained everything in detail and I left knowing I was being taken care of.
I love going to Dr. Zook. I have never had to wait longer than 10 minutes and everyone is very helpful and friendly. Dr. Zook does a great job explaining what is going on with my breakouts and her treatment plan. I would highly recommend her.
She's professional, knowledgeable, curteous, and took the time to make sure I had no further questions. I highly recommend Dr. Zook.
I think Paula Zook is a wonderful doctor. Easy to talk with, and she is a good listener...makes you feel at ease and explains everything thoroughly. I don't usually spend very long in my appointments and yet I never feel rushed....I highly recommend her.
Seen virtually right away. The physician's assistant was nice and efficient, and Dr. Zook was great. She took the time to explain everything, answer questions, etc.
Still always seems odd to me that even though I filled out all of these ZocDoc forms prior to arriving at the office that there were still more forms, many with repetitious data, that I needed to fill out. I keep waiting for that day when I will arrive at an office, be known, and only have to answer a few questions regarding my current health status that day. But, Dr. Zook is great.
Dr. Zook took a ton of time with me to answer all my concerns. I wasn't rushed at all. I appreciate the straight-forward answers and treatment plans. After addressing my primary issues, she asked if I had other questions. Normally, I feel silly asking a doctor about cosmetic concerns like wrinkles, but she totally put me at ease. So on top of getting problems-fixed, I also got great advice on preventive care. I already sent an email to all my girlfriends recommending Dr. Zook.
Dr. Zook was wonderful! Long winded for my taste, but I had to remember that in this case, I rather be over-informed and educated than having anything left up to my own imagination or Google searching. Overall, the experience was great and I'd recommend Zook's practice without a doubt.
Dr. Zook was awesome. I had been holding off on going so I had multiple things to go over. I was worried that we'd be really rushed but she walked me through options for everything and took the time to tell me pros/cons of treatment plans. She was efficient without making me feel rushed. Highly recommend!
Dr. Zook is fantastic, I would (and often do) recommend her to anyone.
I have recommended her to everyone who asks for a dermatologist. She is wonderful
Really nice doctor and doctor assistant
Very thorough. Listened to all my history and concerns. Followed up immediately on isdues to be addressed. Did procedures that day in office. Outstanding. ..I am an RN and very picky. 1st visit.
Extremely thorough appointment. Dr. Zook manages to be both professional and friendly. Would definitely recommend and return.
You won't be disappointed by this doctor. Informative, thoughtful and kind. Most doctors make you feel inferior or self conscious, she doesn't. Highly impressed by her taking the time to talk and listen.
Very genttle, professional.
Great service, I was in and out withing 20 minutes. I recommend this clinic to everyone.
Overall, the appointment was quick and the doctor did what she needed to do but I did feel a little rushed, she didn't ask if I had any questions at the end before running out of the room or give me a quick run down on daily skin care. I think I expected her to be a bit more personable. However I would still recommend.
Very pleasant experience.
She was very knowledgeable and friendly. I felt like I had her full attention while I was there and she made all the options clear.
This is a delayed review (1 year), but Dr. Zook was really great. Friendly and smart and showed the right level of compassion when providing me with my slightly serious diagnosis. (It was the first time I was diagnosed with real skin cancer.) I felt very taken care of. I have since left the Seattle area, so probably won't see Dr. Zook again. But she was a great dermatologist, I highly recommend.
Very good experience. I liked Dr Zook and her staff.
She cares about my condition and really helped me get the right care to resolve my skin issues. She cared enough to follow up and her staff is awesome. I really like all her staff at the office. Dr. Zook really knows her stuff and was able to figure out everything about my skin condition and want to do to resolve it. I have no doubt she knows her stuff! Glad I found her on Zoc Doc.
The appointment was very rushed. She didn't really seem to care about helping, just getting me in and out of the door. What she prescribed did not help in any way, but made my skin worse. Will not be going back to Dr. Zook.
I am really happy that I took the time to look her up and find her at her new practice! I will definitely be returning!
Dr. Zook was professional, personable, and answered all of my questions.
Great! Very personal, knowledgable and professional.
Very informative and reassuring
I will continue to use Dr. Zook as my dermatologist and also recommend her to others.
Appreciate her professionalism
Excellent. She was smart and informative and very direct.
Saw Paula Zook's PA Gina Mower. Excellent bedside manner, very knowledgeable and did a fantastic job treating my axillary hyperhidrosis.
Dr. Zook was very nice and explained my issue very well.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Zook, and I highly recommend her to everyone in need of a dermatologist. I was very impressed with her demeanor, and her willingness to answer all of my questions. I will definitely see her again.
I would highly recommend Dr. Zook to anyone needing any dermatology needs!
She spends the time to educate the patient and the parent. We have used her for our daughters. She has a great disposition toward children without talking down to them.
Im glad i choose her.
Very knowledgeable and will definitely book an appointment through her in the future.
She was great! Personable and seemed very knowledgeable. I was very comfortable talking to her, and she seemed really committed to fixing the issues I was having.
She was professional, efficient, and thorough, explaining procedures and reasons clearly.
Dr. Zook is fantastic, can't recommend her enough!
New to Seattle and was unsure about using Zocdoc, she was wonderful!!!
Wonderful doctor. She's extremely caring and attentive. She is clearly very knowledgeable and answered all my questions.
Lovely and wonderful.
She listened to me and actually heard me! Very personable. I would totally recommend her. I don't understand the negative reviews I had read earlier.
She helped a lot. Hope what she gave me is going to work though. It seemed she never really told me what was wrong.
We really think that she does a great job
Paula is awesome.
Friendly, informative, responsive and prompt.
She is so incredibly nice. Never seems in a hurry but is definitely efficient. No waiting at all.
She is a patient listener, she listened to all my questions and gave good answers.
She was very professional, kind and compassionate. I felt like a human person with her instead of just a reflection of a person. I really enjoyed our meeting and plan to see her again.
Very friendly. The children took to her right away. She explained things in a comprehensive manner and provided sensible instructions to deal with the problem areas.
Professional, friendly, thorough. I have great confidence in her.
It was quick
Efficient, knowledgeable, friendly, respectful!
Very professional and caring.
I was seen on-time which is always nice. There was no waiting at all and I was in and out in 15-20 minutes. Very pleasant experience.
Dr. Zook was very knowledgeable, thorough, and easy to talk to.
As usual, she was attentive, warm and thorough.
She really took the time to understand what was happening with me and work toward finding a reasonable treatment plan. I really appreciated her warmth, knowledge, and thoughtfulness. I would highly recommend Dr. Zook.
Dr. Zook was friendly, informed me about what was happening with my skin so now I have a better understanding of my condition. However, as a first visit, I found it felt like she was more interested in staying on schedule than learning about me as a person rather than a skin condition to be treated. Will give her one more try on a gynecological skin problem and then make my final decision about whether I will add her to my treatment team.
Very professional and thorough. She made a concerted effort to listen and engage me as a patient.
Dr. Zook was very comforting and informative.
quick, professional - perfect
I was treated with dignity and respect. I was given informed choices for my health care. Dr. Paula Zook is excellent!!
She is very knowledgeable and appreciates the patients contribution to their own health.
Dr. Zook is an absolutely wonderful physician. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a very kind, caring, and experienced dermatologist. She is so reassuring and understanding, I never felt rushed.
Mostly good. I had a suspicious mole in an unpleasant location biopsied. She was very professional and thorough. However right after the biopsy she disappeared in a way that almost makes me more concerned (hard to explain). Not that this is her fault but nearly 2 weeks waiting for test results is going to be brutal when I've never waited more than 1business week for tests anywhere else Basically, very thorough skin check but left wondering just how concerned I should be for the next 2 weeks. Certainly worth the trip
She was extremely pleasant. Definitely recommended.
It was perfect, the only feedback i have is the address in Zocdoc is missing the suite number. Z
Professional and nice. The visit was also quick because there was no waiting time.
Great. Positive and helpful,
She was super friendly and professional. She addressed all my concerns and sought to educate me on the issues I was having. Loved it and will definitely recommend her to anyone.
I was a bit worried when I showed up and I had a 7:30 am and someone checked in for a 7:35 am with Dr. Zook as well. Nevertheless, she was largely on time and most importantly I did not feel rushed. Good experience all around.
Friendly & efficient.
Very friendly and professional! Will come see her next time I need a skin exam in a couple years.
