Doctor’s Philosophy

Oftentimes I see patients that come to me that have been told repeatedly by multiple doctors that they just have to live with their pain, that there is nothing else that can be done. But in reality, the issue is that they have not had the resources for the proper treatment. The most important thing I can offer a patient is hope. Most of the people that come see me have suffered for years with their pain, sometimes decades. And they’ve been repeatedly told that there is nothing left to be done, that they have to live with their pain, or even that they are imagining their pain. Ninety-nine percent of the time there are treatments available for people with chronic pain that have never been offered to them. And I pride myself on finding those options for the patient. I really want them to leave the office with a sense of hope. One of the things that I strive for is to be able to give patients the whole continuum of treatment options for their pain. And that is what differentiates me and my clinic from other locations, or other physicians. That is my role as a specialist, is to understand these nuances and try to come up with a different angle to treating the patient. When patients come to me for the first time for an initial consultation, I do a very thorough review of their past medical treatments, their imaging reports, any studies the’yve had done, notes from the previous physicians, and I try to take a very comprehensive history from the patient. I need to understand how my patient is suffering because people perceive pain in different fashions. It affects their lives differently. We treat patients with whats called a multi-disciplinary approach, which means I, as the physician, will diagnose and order specific treatments for the patient for the best outcome. And that is variable but it can include pain psychology, where we work with PhD level psychologists who specializes in pain. Physical therapists who help reeducate the patient with range of motions. Injections, which help reduce pain. Manipulation, which sometimes works sufficiently on its own or needs a team approach. 

Patient Testimonials

“The doctors that I had had experience with, a lot of them their only solution for me was to medicate me. And I actually had one doctor tell me that I can’t fix you. All I can do is just prescribe pain medication for you. And I’m still young, and I want to live my life and not be on medication forever, so it was exciting to come to Dr. Attaman and learn from the very first appointment that his goal was to get rid of the pain and to get rid of the medicine as well. So that I could go on living my life free of all of that. “

“When I came to see Dr. Attaman he definitely gave me treatment choices that I had not previously been offered. “

“He is always kind. The entire staff is amazing and I feel like now they’re my second family. He was willing to try more advanced treatments that definitely weren’t offered to me by other doctors. “

“Before I started seeing Dr. Attaman my pain level was between an eight and a nine on a scale of 10. And I was not able to physically do normal daily activities. And after coming to Dr. Attaman, my pain now is about 95% gone.”

“When I was experiencing pain, I was not able to do normal daily functions such as unloading the dishwasher, going up and down the stairs in my home. Now, to go from feeling like I have no life and no hope and that this was what it was going to be, to being able to do things I like.”

“I never thought I would be excited about unloading the dishwasher, or doing laundry, or going up and down the stairs. But it has been amazing to have my life back.”

“I feel so fortunate that my internist sent me to see Dr. Attaman. He is so thorough in taking a complete medical history, doing a thorough physical exam, and ordering appropriate diagnostic tests to aid him in evaluating a patient’s problems. His bedside manner is excellent. He is compassionate and takes time to explain everything. He asks the patient if he/she understands. He is excellent at injections. I have gotten so much relief already. “

” I would say he is the best physician I have ever had take care of me.”

“I’m a physician and wanted to write a review as a patient of Dr. Attaman’s this past year. I had been having lower back and sacral pain for about 10 years but due to a busy schedule had never gotten it checked out. I knew it wasn’t life threatening and that I didn’t need surgery. But just wanted to finally address the pain in as noninvasive means as possible. I was trained in the MD track (as opposed to Dr. Attaman’s DO track) and know the limitations of training in my field. We are not taught osteopathic manipulation, and I think the DO training in the musculoskeletal system is in general, stronger. I did see an orthopedic doctor who told me I didn’t need surgery, but could not offer much in the way of diagnosis or treatment. So I specifically sought out Dr. Attaman’s expertise because of his DO background and further training in anesthesiology and pain management. I wanted someone who was capable of doing osteopathic manipulation, but also aware of the care needed in doing a safe manipulation. I brought my medical records and recent films, and he diagnosed and treated me the same day. I have never had an osteopathic manipulation, but about 75% of my pain was addressed with that first treatment. I like that his treatment options are varied, from physical therapy and massage, up to to injections. I was finally able to go to physical therapy because he was able to diagnose my issue. I can’t promise that everyone will have the same results as I did, but I was very pleased with my overall experience with Dr. Attaman. He took the time to make an accurate diagnosis, used precautions by reviewing films, explained to me what he thought the issue was, offered effective and diverse treatment options, and was very professional.”

“His office is very pleasant and staff are also very friendly and extremely helpful. I have since moved from Seattle but wanted to post this because my experience was so positive. Best of luck to Dr. Attaman, his staff, and all his patients.”

“It was a Pain Management Doctor who transitioned me to the right people and for the right diagnosis … not the Neurologist, not the Spine Rehabilitation Specialist, not my PCP. However, when I was referred to a Pain doc I assumed everyone had just given up on me and thought I should just be medicated, so I went out of my way to find one who just said no to drugs. Dr. Attaman in Seattle WA fit that bill, and regardless of where things stand with me today – I will forever be grateful to him.”

“Dr Attaman was the 6th doctor that I saw, over a period of 3 years, for a chronic pain problem and the first to give me a correct dagnosis and to give me some pain relief. He takes the time to understand the problem and does not use a PA as a filter.”

“Dr. Attaman was the best doctor I’ve had (and I have had a great amount). He was very attentive to my needs, and truly listened to me. He looked at different possible solutions and made me part of the decision process giving me a choice. When It was time to have a procedure done he was able to calm me down and reassure me (which is hard to do).”

“He did what was best for me in that situation. I am very satisified with him as a doctor, and a person who is compassionate and truly cares about his patients. If there is anything else I need, or call for another doctor in his field, I will only see him.”

“Dr. Attaman is such a blessing. He takes the time to review the history of what the problem is, prior treatments, and is very thorough and precise in identifying the “pain generators”. He then takes the time to map out a specific plan to help and answers all questions. He also does every procedure himself. Even if he is teaching someone else, he does the procedure himself. He is very respectful and mindful of my dignity and treats me as a partner in my healthcare and talks to me not at me. My pain has markedly improved with his help.I have referred several of my coworkers to him. His office does have a policy of not “inviting” patients back who miss an appointment without proper notification. I think this is because he is very much sought after and if you’re scheduled for an appointment and don’t show then you’ve taken up space from someone else who could use his help. However, they email and/or call to remind you of the appointment so really, be respectful and responsible and either cancel or show up.I recommend him whole-heartedly!”

“Wonderful doctor to have on your side!”

“I have suffered from chronic neck and shoulder pain for over 10 years. Tried all sort of doctors, chiropractors, acupuncture, everything you can imagine. One day, my primary care physician recommended Dr. Attaman; so, I decided to give it a shot. It has been amazing the change since I started seeing Dr. Attaman. After explaining all my symptoms, all different type of treatments and medicines I tried in the past, he suggested that could be related to a not very common condition involving nerve constriction by my muscles, he ordered several MRIs and X-rays to verify the condition. I was impressed by the level of detail he went through to make sure this was the root of my problems. I am in the middle of my treatment and so far it’s been night and day. I cannot think of anybody else more qualified and knowledgeable than Dr. Attaman to treat these type of issues.”

“He’s just fantastic. Straight to the point, good bedside manner, compassionate, intelligent, explains things well and a real go-getter! I’ve recommended him to friends, coworkers & acquaintances dozens of times.”

“I visited Dr Attaman because a friend had seen a physiatrist for similar neck/back problems. He offered a more useful diagnosis than the doctors I had previously seen for my condition (persistent migraines). And the solutions he advised, physical therapy and a nerve rhizotomy, have done far more to help my pain issues than the many drugs I’ve been prescribed in the past.”

“Dr. Attaman is one of the most amazing Dr’s I have encountered in years. He is very attentive to my pain and was very attentive in offering solutions he thought he may be able to provide. He did not b.s. me in any manner, talk down to me and/or make me feel unwelcome into his practice. He is truly a godsend and although we have not finished treatments he has already made me feel 50% better (3/6 procedures so far). I trust him and will continue down which ever path he feels is necessary to help me regain my life. Truly amazing man and I am very grateful to have found him.Also his office staff is one of the most amazing I have ever encountered. Smart attentive and spot on. I can not even imagine a better experience!”

“I worked many years as a Registered Nurse. I ruptured a disc, had surgery, went back to work for a year and then ruptured three more discs and have had disabling back problems including pain and spasms ever since. I saw Dr. Attaman after seeing several other doctors and being told that my options were exhausted. I went to Dr. Attaman seeking out PRP, but after an evaluation he informed me that I was a better candidate for a different procedure (one that he did not make nearly as much money for performing as it was covered by insurance and not a cash pay). I had the procedure preformed and had good results. Although I remain disabled, my quality of life has improved! As a nurse, I have had the opportunity to work with many physicians and know that physicians are just people and there are all kinds. I can truly say that I trust Dr. Attaman, I believe he can help people with chronic pain and that he is exceptional at what he does. He is respectful and caring. I would recommend him to my family members.”

“I observed Jason Attaman treat my wife over several months during 2009 for pain management after two major surgeries and was very impressed with his expertise, medical knowledge, professionalism and patient care and caring. He listens to his patients, answers questions in clear and understanding way, and provides the attention and care they need. He truly loves his patients and cares about them as individuals too. With a nurse and 3 doctors in our family, I know and understand what good doctors are and can do. In my book, Jason is clearly in a league of his own. You will be very happy to have him as your doctor, as indicated by his repeat business, referrals and patients willing to pay for his services out of their own pockets, even when they have medical coverage under their regular medical coverage plans. Simply put, Jason is the best of the best. giving his patients the care and caring they deserve, need and want.”

“My wife’s recovery was significantly helped by Jason’s care and pain management techniques and suggestions. She was very impressed by Jason and recommends him 100% plus with absolutely no reservations to others in need. You shall benefit from his expertise, knowledge and hands-on approach. His sense of humor and people skills will inspire confidence and make you feel better mentally as well as physically.”
