Dr. Qi is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and direct. She provides information in a very factual straight forward manner filled with options for you to consider. She provides the tools for you, then encourages you to the path of overall health and well being. Dr. Qi in every medical sense of the word, through her understanding of Internal medicine and experience with human emotion and mental health considerations SAVED my life. I still see her regularly and consider myself lucky to have her as my doctor.

I did not have good experiences with Dr Qi. She is an ESL doctor and I have trouble understanding her. She prescribes medications. says she'll call back in a week then never calls back. That happened twice. She wrote a prescription my insurance did not cover and then said she never saw the texts from the drugstore or the insurance company. She has trouble with writing prescriptions in English. She wrote one that said take this medicine for 30 days as needed and ordered 15 pills. Overall I do not feel confident she is capable of caring for my medical needs. I thinks Dr Qi needs t a lot more education in oral and written English and with using the health system here in CA.

Dr Qi is a great doctor. She listens, asks questions, explains her recommendations and works hard to make sure you are satisfied before you leave. I greatly appreciated her caring attitude and thorough diagnosis. I would recommend her without hesitation.

Dr Qi has been on point and very dedicated to my care for each of the conditions I have seen her for. She has looked at each of my conditions very intently and been thorough in her research and testing. She has even called in the evening after office hours to check in on me. I feel very happy with Dr Qi's medical care.

Dr. Qi is a wonderful doctor. She is so kind and caring and takes the time to explain everything to me. I am healthier than ever and taking much less prescriptions under her management. She never rushes and answers all questions. I am so happy to be under her medical care. I highly recommend Dr. Qi.

What an excellent doctor! Very thorough and extremely intelligent. I took my 90 year old father in to see her since his regular doctor was out of the office. She meticulously went through all of his records and was extremely focused on his care. She did not rush us at all and did not make us wait--which is so exhausting for elderly patients, especially when they aren't feeling well. I would not hesitate to see Dr. Qi, she is amazing!

This doctor saw my invalid mother and she was so rude to me. Instead of evaluating my mother that was just in the hospital. She started asking me why is she dependent on me and what type of support am I providing. She had no consideration of how difficult it was bringing my mother to her for medical treatment. She also did not really check my mother at all. Not a nice person for seniors.

I have never met such an ignorant person in my life! She asked if I had ever been diagnosed w/bipolar because I take blood pressure medication (carvedilol). I've had a heart attack, of course I take blood pressure meds and the stupid woman was looking at my medical records. I will never go back! This woman has no business PRACTICING medicine! If this is what Dignity Health has to offer for doctors I am better off driving into the bay area where they actually have a brain in their heads.

Dr. Qi is very thorough in her initial evaluation and is very focused on what she is doing. I can see how this might come across as being "cold and uninterested" however I must say I appreciate her valuable time. She was on point, listened and took my concerns seriously. Read my file and asked questions related to tests made and some missing. Followed up with lab and pharmacy to get correct information.

As I read in the other post. Dr. Qi does not listen. Either she does not understand you or does not care. She only wants to see things her way and not involve the patient in their own medical decisions. There is a sense of lack of experience/ knowledge; therefor she does not have the capacity to take in the patient perspective. I am requesting a change of doctors. The shame is that my insurance will probably switch means networks. Bye Dignity :(
