Julie Chacko did the surgery but did not get my stone. I ended up having to come back to get surgery again with a different doctor, who was better skilled.

She should work in a lab. No people skills. Nightmare md. Total nastiness. My urologist retired and I inherited her. Not! Would rather walk barefoot on glass than have to come back to her office.

I have. Ever been disappointed with Dr Bailey. He is the best doctor I have had in years. I was so disappointed with Doctors at SANSUM Clinic. They take Medicare so Inuse specialists there but when I’m sick I get in to see Dr Bailey and don’t have to wait forever to get in!

Dr Morff took care of my husband during the last few years of his life. He understood his cardiac problems and at the end of is life with cancer treated him with kindness, respect and returned phone call as needed. I would highly recommend him.

Just tried to become a new patient with my Aetna insurance. She does take Aetna and new patients, but I would have to pay 2,750 a year out of pocket to become her patient.It’s called a concierge service. I’m from a big city and have never heard of such a thing.

Review for Dr. Timothy West, MD

He really is a wonderful doctor. I can’t believe he goes the extra mile and makes an effort to help. I know he just started at UCSF so he is still adjusting to the commute. He is a patient advocate and is a compassionate and caring person.

Review for Dr. Timothy West, MD

Consistent horrible service. They do not care enough to call people back about labs even when the results are bad. The office staff is rude and only cares about billing and taking money. I am finding a different doctor an d so should you.

I was at my wit's end with plantar fasciitis. One year of pain, cortisone, and physical therapy that only made it worse. I could hardly walk. Then someone recommended Dr. Robinson to me. Three weeks later, under Dr. Robinson's care, I was recovered and walking all over Spain with my family.

Would never ever recommend or see this doctor! He shouldn’t be working in the ER. He is not a trustworthy person period. Someone should complain to the board of directors about his inabilities as a physician.

Dr. Mozingo is an excellent physician. He never rushes my appointments and I know that he truly cares about providing me with the best help that I can get. He is knowledgable and skilled, and my pain has improved greatly because of him. I highly recommend him.

I needed my 13 year old to be seen for a wart. I also wanted him to be checked for eczema and moles. Dr Gammon saw him promptly, was polite, kind and thorough. He explained everything he was doing. I will definitely keep him as our dermatologist. The front office was clean, and friendly.
