Review of Dr. Koura

- in La Mesa, CA |

Dr Koura is currently taking care of me at the UCSD Medical Center. I find her to be very trustworthy in her treatment and diagnosis. Her bedside manner is fantastic. She always makes sure all your questions and concerns are answered to the fullest. Dr Koura is very kind and caring.

Review of Dr. Roeland

- in San Diego, CA |

Worst oncologist I ever had, and I ended up having many (not because I had problems with any of them, but my journey led me from UCSD to Hopkins, Stanford and back to UCSD). If I had let him verbally bully me into not seeking additional opinion, I wouldn't be alive today. Also, he lied afterward and did a complete 180 on what he said. I can't stress enough to avoid this man.

Review of Dr. Choi

-San Diego , CA |

Dr Choi is kind and compassionate. He explains my medical information very thoroughly. I don’t feel rushed. When I leave my appointment, I feel at peace and calm. Going to an oncologist can be a very scary thing. But I have such trust in Dr. Choi and he explains everything so thoroughly, but it makes me feel better.

Review of Dr. Lerman

- in san diego |

Does not listen to his patients, he simply wants lab rats for his new procedures and research. Be VERY wary.

Review of Dr. Coffey

- |

If you have a complicated case, insurance that doesn’t make them money or are ever on top of your health more than your doc then this is not the hospital for you. I am only 24 years old and switched to UCSD from Rady Children’s over 3 years ago. I have been so let down and feel defeated. I was misdiagnosed for many months as a child and nearly died because of a doctors inablity to believe they are wrong. Once switched doctors I was diagnosed within days. I have run into this problem again now

He made my startling reality of getting cancer into a positive learning process of saving my life. I truly value his expertise, knowledge, professionalism, and positivity. He feels like a lifetime friend!

Review of Dr. McHale

- in San Diego, CA |

This doctor was unprofessional and uncaring. He actually made fun of me for being upset about having Uterine cancer. When he converted from minimally invasive to full stomach surgery he didn't bother to explain to me. He also failed to tell me that I had a 25% chance of having Stage3 cancer. I have many more stories. His staff never returns calls, loses paperwork and blames others. I have never complained about a doctor and loved my new doctors. I hate for anyone to experience what I did
