We were on vacation back home in Seattle, and although there were some paperwork mishaps, we were very pleased with the care we received. The staff was friendly and attentive--truly caring. We know we were more than just "renters" which some centers can make you feel like. We were very happy to be welcomed as part of Olympic View's dialysis family. Safe, clean, and inviting. Thank you Sandi and Ron -- From Joe and Kathy Hodges, Seattle Alki when we retire.
