SHC Patient, Aug 2015

I've mentioned this before: I consider myself fortunate to be in Dr. Aasi's care. She is always medical perfection personified.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Aasi and her team (Dr. Gee, resident and Christina Saucedo (Clinical Nurse) provided me with absolutely superior medical treatment and care. They all made me feel comfortable for a truly uncomfortable procedure and I felt I was under the care of very competent and extremely nice and respectful health care providers. I don't think it gets much better than this. Dr. Aasi has an especially comforting bedside manner and it is clear she is excellent at what she does. Dr. Gee's bedside mannner as a resident was also exceptional and I'm sure he will make a very fine Dermatologist or Dermatology surgeon, if that's the path he chooses. I am very grateful that I was able to receive such excellent from this amazing Stanford team!

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

The Doctor was so good that I didn't even bruise!!

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Dr. Aasi gave me information about possible variations in the cost of the medication depending on the insurance company or pharmacy. This was very helpful.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

I consider myself very fortunate to be in Dr. Aasi's care and I've told her so. She never fails to listen carefully to anything I have to say and our relationship relative to my care is best described as collaborative. Most important, she never makes me feel rushed or that our meeting has to be hurried along. I realize she's busy and has other patients to see, yet we manage to use our time together efficiently and we all come away satisfied.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

All experiences have been excellent.
