Patient Comments (5)
Yuba City, CA |
It took a long time to get an appointment, but Dr. Lizama was very thorough and polite.
Grass Valley, CA |
I saw Dr. Lizama 2 times. There was a question of if I had MS. My first visit, she seemed very concerned, did a thorough exam and promised we would get to the bottom of this. Second visit, she was dismissive, unconcerned, spent 7 and a half minutes with me, refused to make a follow-up appointment, refused to tell me anything, refused to answer any of my questions. P.S. I do not have MS. I have Pernicious Anemia which has left me with permanent nerve damage due to the delayed diagnosis.
in Grass Valley, CA |
Front office cancelled appointments with no notice. No process to follow up with MEMORY patients, even after a lapse of one year. Medical assistance staff did not run a full meds check or explain medications and what they are for. Expected patient to understand dosages and drug interactions. Doctor was unable or unwilling to provide progressive protocol for early onset Alzheimer's, opting instead to refer out. Willing to document the patient's decline, but unwilling to fight it.
