SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Dr. Barman was awesome! Super clear in her communication and someone I could trust.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr Linda was excellent! can I have her as my PCP?!

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

The attending, Dr. Barman, was very good. The resident (can't remember his name) was good, but didn't follow up the next day with me as the attending had asked him to do. Perhaps he got busy or it was an oversight. Nothing major, but something I noted.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Linda Berman provided excellent service and paid attention to my health concerns. She did a good examination of my terrible headaches. She is very professional

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Very thorough (Dr. Barman).

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Linda Barman was very attentive and nice.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Very pleasantly surprised by level of care for an express visit. Doctos walked already knowing my medical history like a regular primary care visit.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Dr. Barman is far and away the best urgent doctor I have ever seen--if she worked in primary care, I would sign up to be her patient in a flash! She is compassionate, thoughtful, and gave excellent explanations on my condition. I cannot say enough good things about her--she is a model physician. She even called to check in on my condition a few days later! I am a young physician, and she inspired me with her care.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

One of the best Drs ever experienced

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Outstanding above and beyond care. Exceptional diligence, thoroughness, and knowledge. Very caring, compassionate.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Dr. Batman is really good with her medical knowledge and style in patient care.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

I feel very grateful to have had a careful, attentive care team in the urgent care clinic. Because of their attentiveness, I was referred to the right providers and course of action for care - and uncovered important health issues. Now I am aware of these health issues and can take steps to manage them. If the urgent care team had simply stopped their questions after a certain point, or not shown as much concern for my well-being, I would still be totally in the dark about my condition. I will always recommend SHC's urgent care in Palo Alto because of the outstanding compassion and expertise of the staff.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

This was the second time I've had this doctor. She is the best healthcare provider I've ever had.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

very profession also very caring

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Dr. Barman was great.

SHC Patient, May 2018

The provider was very helpful and knowledgeable in answering all my questions.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

My doctor, Dr. Linda Kirkpatrick Barman, was easily the best doctor I have ever seen in my 19 years of being alive. She came in and was immediately sensitive to my pain and discomfort, and correctly diagnosed me in a matter of minutes. After being in an Urgent Care for 4 hours and leaving with the wrong diagnosis, it felt so good to be treated properly. I will 100% recommend this care provider to my peers, and will always return to this facility for my health moving forward. Thank you all for your wonderful help!!!!

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Very impressed and pleased with the medical resident (Dr. O) and the family medicine Dr. (Dr. Linda Barman)

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

All very good.

Dr. Barman called me that same day to inform me of my X-Ray results. Thank you very much Dr. Barman. My worries were wiped away that day.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Wonderful; I really appreciate the Express Care option, and all of the doctors I've seen have been great.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

I was surprised to get such interest & attention especially for the mental health aspect of my visit. I felt very understood & cared for. As well as nervous about the recommended treatment (meds) & concerned about severity of diagnoses (worse than I expected.)

This was possibly the best doctor visit I've had. Dr. Barman was extremely understanding, very concern- extraordinarily empathetic!

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

It was a very good experience, and the Physician whom I met was such a wonderful person. She was not in a hurry, did all the tests that needed to be done in a gently manner, answered my questions and explained everything to me in detail. I have already recommended her name to my colleagues.

I was very impressed with the staff and treatment I received at Stanford Express Care.

SHC Patient, May 2017

I was having an issue with my foot and Dr. Barman called me and asked if I would be able to get an X-ray ahead of time since it would likely be required to properly diagnose my issue. She knew she wanted to have the radiologist read it as well as herself and was concerned if we did it at my appointment time that I would have to wait longer. I appreciate that she took the time to reach out ahead of time as it ended up saving a lot of time during the appointment.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

My doctor was hands down the most efficient and thorough doctor I've ever seen in my life!

I liked her very much.
