Review for Dr. Smruti Nalawadi, MD

I was very impressed with Dr. Suh's professional manner as she seems very knowledgeable, asked many pertinent questions and is a very good listener. She also ordered appropriate labs, made a referral for me and called in a prescription all in one visit. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Dr. Lieberman and his staff are very professional and always demonstrate that the patient matters to them. My husband has been a patient for over 2 years and they have always gone above and beyond to make sure he is taken care of in a timely, caring manner. Thank you

Review for Dr. Marc Lieberman, MD

Dr. Beck has been my doctor for many years, and she has never let me down about what is going with my body. She is very thorough and respectful. I will keep going there until she kicks me out.

Would never recommend. Not interested in answering questions or actually having a conversation. Rushed me through visit and then prescribed a medication that isn’t even a standard therapy for the complaint I had come to see her for. I’d never return to her.

Just had my second visit with Dr. Petronijevic and I'm so pleased I found him. He cares about my health and takes the time to review my health issues and comes up with solutions in a collaborative way. So fortunate to have Dr. Steve as my primary physician.

Review for Dr. Steven Petronijevic, DO

This doctors incompetence meant I was stage three when finally diagnosed with colorectal cancer after she misdiagnosed my tumor as a hemorrhoid. In addition, I was present when she acted very unprofessional with staff

I delivered my first child at salinas valley memorial hospital and dr Larsen was the on on call that night. She had no interest in honoring my rights as a birthing person, tried to bully me into many interventions that were not evidence based, and made my overall experience awful.

Not only is the doctor worthless, the staff is more worthless, lacking basic skills and training.

Apr 01 2019

Review for Dr. Aytac Apaydin, MD

Not fantastic. Nice enough, but I have a few problems with her way of thinking. For example, she didn't know why a person would have allergies in California but not in Washington since "there were also trees in Washington".

Great Doctor- he really listens and takes time to understand your issues and do what it takes to treat you. He’s open to alternative methods and doesn’t try to make you feel like you have no voice in your own healthcare. ????

Review for Dr. Glenn Yoneda, MD

Mar 19 2019

Review for Dr. James Lin, MD

She is more worried about being sued or getting into trouble with the licensure board. She will not help you get on SSI or disability and she will refer you to many Doctors instead of treating you herself!

Mar 14 2019

Review for Dr. Valerie Choy, MD

I don’t trust her because she’s the kind of Doctor that protects herself over good patient care!
