SHC Patient, Jun 2015

The doctor could have better bedside manner. Seemed more interested in facts.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Most of my time was with the Fellow as opposed to the named provider.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Dr. Jonelis was excellent and was very thorough. I only saw Dr. Cao for a short time, but she was also excellent.

SHC Patient, May 2015

I spent a lot of time with the resident who was very good and asked lots of good questions and then the doctor came in for two minutes and asked many of the same questions already asked. seemed inefficient and not well coordinated

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Not enough time with doc. Intern is great, though.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

Very pleased.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

A - OK.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Good, no problems!

SHC Patient, May 2014

She was very professional but it took a while to establish a rapport. I ended up feeling good about her but was a little put off at first.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

Dr. Cao is "the best" extremely knowledgeable & caring towards her patients.

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

Good.
