Wait times

SHC Patient, Feb 2020

I always receive excellent care from Dr. Bovone. She is caring, thoughtful and always puts my mind at ease, regardless of my concerns.

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Will likely switch to another doctor and group after I have my baby. I feel like a number - not a person. I don't feel like anyone listens to me. I don't think she's a bad doctor - just not right for me.

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

care provider is very concerned and informs patient every step of the way!!

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

Excellent doctor with very clear information and also a very positive attitude!

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

Well experience, very professional, always happy disposition. Tries her best to understand situation, tries her best to (empathize) be empathetic.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Dr. Bovone is friendly and knowledgeable but it is hard to make personal connection or get comfortable with her. She moves very quickly and it feels like she does not have more than 5 minutes to spend with you. I respect her swiftness and time, but it can feel very impersonal and alienating.

I like my doctor but I do feel rushed through my appointments.

It has been years since I found an OB/GYN who can fully trust. So I look forward to seeing Dr. Bovone every year. She is knowledgeable, approachable, friendly and spends time to understand her patients beyond the physical or medical needs. She can relate and connect well with her patients and that is key in term of continuation of care. GREAT JOB DR. BOVONE!

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Love Dr. Bovone! She is very supportive, kind, and genuinely cares for her patients needs, concerns, etc.

Dr. Bovone is the best there is. I am lucky to have had her as my doctor for my two babies and lucky to have her as my ongoing doctor for women's well checks

I will recommend Dr.Bovone to all my family and friends, she is amazing, sweet and smart.

Dr Bavone is the best kind woman explained everything talked about my concerns great DR

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

The doctor was very rushed. NO one told me beforehand procedures to get the best ultrasound nor did anyone inform me beforehand that the doctor had ordered a test during the visit.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Dr. Bovone is always a pleasure to see, and takes me and my care very seriously. She takes time, listens, and helps solve any problems there may be. I appreciate her so much!

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

dr. bovone is the best

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Overall, I felt like my entire appointment was focused on my weight and like I was being talked down to. When I mentioned certain topics they were brushed aside so I could be told more about how I am overweight. While I understand the importance of a healthy weight I felt very mistreated and like my doctor was being somewhat rude during the conversation.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Bovone has been my OGBYN for years, she is a professional that show empathy and sympathy towards her patients. I like her very much. I feel very confident and comfortable in her presence.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

I love my Dr. Bavon. I live all the way in manteca now and I will never change my obgyn

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

As a patient, every time I have an appointment I have to wait 15-30 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. And then the doctor usually seems rushed once I'm able to see her.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Dr. Bovone is excellent in understanding the concerns of the patient and guiding them in difficult situations. I really appreciate the compassion she displayed, simply amazing.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

doesn't spend enough time with patients, tight schededuled always, wish I could get deeper explanation of my conditions, seems like doc is just checking boxes and doing bare minimum

Dr. Bovone is a wonderful doctor. I told my husband how much I appreciate that she looks at my chart and talks to me about past issues and current issues. It's nice to be treated like a person with a life and feelings.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

She was very thorough and explained everything to me. I feel very comfortable with her and know she will take good care of me

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

there is simply no better than Dr Bovone. she is appropriately cautious when needed. she is thorough in her treatment. she is knowledgeable and yet down to Earth. she has performed a D&C for me and now a csection and I healed beautifully from both.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

I used to see this doctor at another practice so I haven't seen her in a few years. I really like her as a doctor but I felt really rushed in the appointment and I feel that my primary concerns were just brushed off and not really addressed the way I was expecting. she also didn't mention to me when my next visit should be and if I should make an appointment before I left that day. Just a little disappointed over all and was expecting more.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

I love working with Dr. Bovone. I reccommend her at every opportunity and look forward to continuing to have her oversee my current and future OB needs.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

fantastic

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

I felt a little rushed, I really would have appreciated if the doctor had asked if I had any questions. Instead I felt like she was trying to walk out of the room while I said "wait, I have a question...ok, wait, I have another question." I'm pregnant, I'm going to have a million questions!

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

I love my doctor! she is very nice, friendly and easy to talk too. I would recommend her to everyone.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

I love Dr. Bovone. I wanted to be induced and she worked with me to have that happen ASAP! Made my labor and delivery seem SO EASY!!!!

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

I tend to feel a little rushed with the doctor.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

I love Dr Bovone. She absolutely explains my medical choices, the meds I should be on, and leaves a lot of decisions in my court, offering great education about these decisions. She is relaxed but takes action when intervention is needed. Her interpersonal skill are excellent- she remembers personal information, enjoys my daughter and takes genuine personal interest in ME!

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Felt like dr. Bovone was in a rush, she stood the whole time during our visit. I felt kind of lost with symptoms and don't feel like what I was explaining was a normal or not thing.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

very pleased.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

This was my first consultation/appointment with Dr. Bovone and I am very thrilled and excited to have her as my Ob/GYN. She was very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable and quickly followed up with questions that we had regarding some test coverages. I would definitely recommend her to others.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr Bovone is knowledgable and bright. However, when I had questions, she would be in a rush to answer them and when I wanted to follow up on questions, I felt like I couldn't because she was in a rush to get onto the next patient. She was my gynecologist and I should be able to ask her about issues that concern me.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Bovone is great - very thorough and took the time to talk through the ultrasound results and the options.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Despite the long wait, and that the office was officially closed for the day during my appointment, no one made me feel rushed or unimportant. The nurse, doctor, and admin staff were patient with me, taking lots of time to discuss my situation, and answering all of my questions.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Bovone and Dr. Tiglao are excellent!

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Bovone is an exceptional doctor but more than that she is an amazing and caring individual that gives her undivided attention to her patients and any concerns they have. She is an absolute asset to the healthcare industry!

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr Bovone is an excellent Doctor, she listened to my concerns, gave recommendations and I generally felt that she cared about me and my health and welfare. She then called me the following day late in the evening to provide my test results - incredibly professional and compassionate.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

The nurs and doctor didn't inform me that my doctor gonna be absent 1 week befor my due date. Wasn't happy about it. When I realize ( during scheduling next appontment) that and came to ask the nurse about it, she just didn't provide me information about my options if delivery will happens in a week of my doctor absence.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Bovone is simply perfect, and I have already recommended her to several of my friends, one of whom is now her patient as well.
