Spring Valley, CA |
Dr. P listened to me and I felt that she heard me. She the first doctor that has done this on some time. She didn't make me feel like I was a number or that she was rushing me. Thank you Dr. P!

I love Dr. P! She listens, acknowledges me and then discusses the appropriate plan of care. And then, she follows through immediately. Her assistant, Francine, is awesome. Truly a Sharp experience with Dr. P!

She is an awesome Doctor, our family has been seeing her for 20 plus years and she does a great Job and she cares
San Marcos, CA |
She cares about the people the go to see her, she follows through on what they need and makes sure you never leave without knowing everything you need and having all your questions answered. She's easy to talk to as a person and a doctor. And she treats people like they are her friends, not patients she'll forget about once they're out the door. She is always up to date in the medical field and knows the best doctors to refer to if you need a specialist.
