Good experience.
Dr. Weng was excellent. I felt a real sense of working together to find a solution.
Good.
One of the best healthcare dr. I have ever met. Glad to have Dr. Weng for my PHCP.
very nice and professional
excellent provider!
I would love to have her as my primary care provider.
my provider showed genuine concern about my chief compliant. she was very personable
4. Care provider made sure I authorized her recommended procedure. Many MD's won't do this.
AMAZING CARE AND CONCERN FROM THE DOCTORS
Had a really great and helpful interaction; she listened to me and took me seriously, advised me not to worry but that she would look at everything possible in order to be thorough and give me peace of mind
My visit went very well: thorough explanations of follow-up care, courteous and professional demeanor.
informative and kind and reassuring
Great care I feel well treated.
Dr. Weng was truly awesome.
I received a follow-up call a few days later & I felt confident everyone I connected with cared about my good health.
Dr. Kirsti Weng was kind, patient listened to me and something about her demeanor reassured me and I felt an enormous sense of relief.
Dr. Elder was friendly and included me in the decision process the whole way.
Dr. Weng knowing she was running behind for so long - Should have the intuitive of getting another dr. to see she shouldn't have to seeing one patient for over an hour - Leave another waiting for so long.
Dr. Weng-Elder is phenomenal. She's intelligent and intuitive simultaneously, and she's kind and encouraging as well. I always ask for an appointment with her when I have to visit Express Care. She reminds me of a GP or family practitioner of days gone by -- she listens extremely well and like a detective, she is able (with the patient's input) to ferret out the solution for a given problem. I wish she could be my doctor of record. She really is outstanding.
dr Weng was very straightforward and very helpful
I felt very well cared for by Dr Weng and was very glad I came in to the clinic.
Personable and caring.
Dr Weng talked more about her daughter attending UOP than seeing to my problem. For the duration of my visit, she talked to me about my issue maybe 5 minutes. She asked me, "what do you want to do with your issue?" I was thinking, what? I came here to get expert suggestions. If I knew, I would of done it myself. Truly disappointing. I hope to never see her. She wasn't very helpful.
Dr. Elder was exceptional in her care and in involving me in my care.
All-in-all, an above-average experience going to the doctor. If this were not an "Express Care" clinic, I would push for this to become my primary care physician's office.
I am very happy meeting a kind & a good lister provider. I like to thank Dr. Weng from my bottom of my heart & again thanks for all your follow up and kindness.
My physician was outstanding in terms of professionalism. care and concern.
I especially appreciated that she didn't appear rushed.
this care provider was excellent-putting me at ease and a true human being. A unique Doctor and special person Thank you for excellent experience.
I felt like this Doctor was talking down to me and did not listen to me...
Waiting on my follow up but I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone (already have)
Dr. Weng listened to my concerns, as minor as they were, with full attention & made sure I was OK before I left.
The dr. got me into an ENT that very day. She answered all my questions gave an exam then sent me to the ENT who quickly diagnosed me and I was soon on the road to recovery.
Doctor was very thorough, thoughtful and caring.
Dr. Elder took excellent care of me. I wear hearing aids and due to illness I was suddenly totally deaf - scary - and she made me feel better.
I wish this doctor could be my PCP she was amazing
Everyone was so kind and explained what they were doing
Dr. Elder is the best! I hope she can be my PCP at Stanford!
Fellow dr. was excellent. Senior doctor was so-so.
I was told I would get a telephone call from the orthopedics department for a follow-up appointment later in the day or following day. After several days no call came so I called orthopedics myself to make the appointment.
Dr. Weng has exceptional bedside manner and caring.
