Review of Dr. Eastman

- in Pedraza |

Run away from her.She does not have the enough knowledge. You are going to lose your time. She only did me one physical examination.I have strong pain in my neck..She did not examine physically my neck. I went for diagnosis, and I left her office without it. I feel without hope and help.She is fake .No knowledge. She smiles...but she is fake.She is on her field...she.needs to go again to the medicine school to get the basic tools to do a good physical examination on pacients..

Review of Dr. Eastman

- in San Diego, CA |

Nice in that polite/fake way. However, not knowledgeable nor thorough. I've had to learn the hard way that sticking with nice doesn't help you get better. Once I got different opinions, I was happy she wasn't the one overseeing my neck injuries anymore. Get a 2nd opinion if you have any lingering doubts with her assessment. Your instinct is telling you something.

Review of Dr. Eastman

- in San Diego, CA |

I’m a 70-year old man with a long history of back problems. My osteoarthritis has become much worse in the last 2 years. A minor fall down a couple of carpeted stairs in a restaurant impacted me substantially. My left hip hurt and I was limping. Bed rest didn’t help. Finally, I saw Dr. Eastman. She’s young, very smart, and attractive. After a new MRI and X-rays she concluded my arthritis was to blame. It had spread tremendously and had reached a tipping point. I am being referred to a surgeon.

Review of Dr. Albers

-San Diego, CA |

She is thorough, caring and excellent in her judgement. I've observed many doctors in my life, both in my career in a hospital, and from observing the care of family members--and in fact am married to one. I always watch for their use of logic, and of taking time to integrate all the information. Dr. Albers does this. She is outstanding.

Review of Dr. Chen

- in San Diego, CA |

Dr. Melinda Chen is the most compassionate doctor I have ever met at UCSD. She spends so much time with me at each visit. I always leave our visits feeling like I am in good hands, and she has always been right about the diagnosis. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Melinda Chen to all. She is a fabulous doctor and I hope to have her for many years to come as my doctor.

Review of Dr. Chen

- in San Diego |

If I could select zero stars I would. She and most the doctors she reffered me to treated me so poorly I would leave my appointments in full blow panic attacks. Defend yourself and you will be thrown out of UCSD healthcare. Same on you Dr. Chen! You wasted almost 2 yrs of my life living in misery needlessly. Disgraceful! My 7 yr old and 5 year old deserve to have better care for their mother. You failed them.

Review of Dr. Hofflich

-San Diego, CA |

Dr. Hofflich is a knowledgeable, warm, and caring physician. It is her dedication to her patients, her positive and reassuring attitude , along with her medical knowledge and research abilities that have gotten me through many complicated health issues. Dr. Hofflich is an excellent diagnostician. However, she will email other doctors on your behalf, or refer you to a specialist, if need be. I trust Dr. Hofflich with all of medical care. I know she cares about me and all of her patients. She has
