Dr. Alula was my primary care physician for ten years, until I moved away from San Diego. She was, by far, the most thorough, thoughtful, and compassionate of any of the doctors I've ever had. She just happened to be available when I went on the website, and I will always be grateful to her.

I have been seeing Dr. Carley since 1988 and I'm very confident in his knowledge and care for my well being. He prevented me from having a Major Heart attack by suggesting further test of what he was seeing. I'm very grateful for that. Thank you

I had a L4/L5 microdiscectomy done by Dr. Malone in March 2020. Dr. Malone did a great job explaining the procedure to me what to expect before/after surgery. I'm now 3 months post-op and feel great! I'm very satisfied with the procedure and thankful I was referred to Dr. Malone.

Review for Dr. Bugbee

So, Dr. Li is not the problem. It is her Scripps clinic staff. They make appointments for you without telling you. They can't unzip an MRI file. They don't tell the Dr. about treatment history sent from other doctors so she has no clue. The problems are not her. The problems are staff.

Jun 01 2020

Review for Dr. Li

Just saw Dr. Marx for first time. I was disappointed. He interrupted me, and asked questions that made it clear that he had not listened to what I had very briefly told him. I am on here now searching for a new endocrinologist.

She was a really great listener, which, to me, is the most important trait a doctor can have. She addressed all my worries and scheduled a colonoscopy without any issues. Returned results really quickly. Kind, thoughtful, smart and happy. Look forward to working with her in the future.
