Dr. Fresco and her team responded to my morning email about having cold/flu symptoms by scheduling a video appointment the same afternoon -- excellent! She did a complete verbal exam and then recommended a nasal swab / PCR test to check for COVID and other possible diseases. The results came back at 6:30pm on Friday evening, and Dr. Fresco called me within minutes (after getting checking for interactions with CLL) to explain the positive for para-influenza #3 before I even had time to worry what that was.

Dr. Fresco was thorough. She reviewed previous doctor notes, discussed the findings, and made her recommendations. I trust Dr. Fresco.
Radiology was delayed and the physician stayed after the clinic closed to wait for the results and to give us instructions. She took all the time needed to help us, when I am sure she would rather have been home eating dinner.

I have been with Dr. Fresco for several years now & think that she is very thorough in her assessments. I miss her warmth & friendliness when we first started. I think that she is so busy that her straight forward professionalism stands out more than her warmth.
Dr Fresco is excellent. She comes with my highest recommendation. She goes above and beyond. For example, calling me on a Sunday night to discuss test results.
It was the end of the day and Dr. Fresco was very caring. And very busy. I am very thankful for her seeing me late in the day rather than send me to an emergency room with a pandemic going on.
Dr. Fresco is an outstanding doctor. always helpful. always available. often goes beyond my expectations.
Thank you for taking the time to listen.
Dr. Fresco spent about an hour reviewing every possible option for me. It was the most thorough medical appointment I've ever had.

Dr. Fresco is fabulous. She clearly spent time preparing for my physical and takes time during he appointment to hit all of the relevant issues. Shenis thoughtful, caring and a great listener.
The physician spent more time during the visit typing into the computer than speaking to me. She also has not yet gotten back to me regarding the results of the x-rays that I had taken during the visit.
Good communication skills.
On computer most of visit.
Dr Fresco exceeds my expectations in care she provides, referrals to other specialists and follow up. I can't say enough good things about her. She calls me promptly with the results and gives me great comfort and confidence that I receive best possible care.

Dr. Fresco is an amazing doctor! She obviously cares a lot about her patients. She responds very quickly to emails and even calls after hours and to check in on you as her patient. I wish more doctors had her kindness, compassion and listening skills. If I could I would give her excellent on all ratings. She is the best GP I have ever had!! I am lucky to have her as my doctor, and Menlo Clinic is lucky to have her representing them. I think you should give her a raise! :)
Just wish she didn't have to spend so much time typing. Hard to talk with your doctor in today's world when the doctor is always typing. I have heard this from others so it is not just Dr.'s the way of the world!

I appreciate her kindness and sincerity. She truly cares about wellness and health of her patients. She is good at discussing lifestyle changes to improve health and not just simply prescribing a pill.

Could not have been better
Dr. Fresco is very detail oriented. She covered all my problems & concerns.
Dr had very poor time management skills. Why do we make appointments if the Dr ignores patient allotted time. At 10:30am Dr was 60 minutes behind schedule. Very poor performance!!
Dr. Fresco listens is reassuring is very thorough & follows up.

Dr. Fresco is excellent. I was recommended to her by another patient.

I love Dr . Fresco, she is WONDERFUL!!!!!!
More time spent typing into her computer that looking at, or talking to, me. Not sure that she is very thorough.
Dr. Fresco thought my blood pressure was too high and took the time to talk to me about it, which I appreciated.
I am willing to wait for Dr. Fresco, because she gives me the same extra attention she gives to all her patients.
My main observation about the experience of the appointment was that Dr. Fresco could probably do a bit more to make the visit feel less rushed and I don't necessarily mean by giving more time. We both are very business like and we both talk fast and we dive right in. But maybe if Dr. Fresco came into the room and just took a big breath or used some other behavior to just slow the initial moments it would have a huge impact on the rushed feeling. One place where she really hit the mark was helping me calm down/feel less stressed so we could get a realistic BP reading. She just made me feel comforted and my BP plummeted from the reading the PA took.
this is the best provider I have seen at Menlo medical
I already recommend her to a friend.
Consistently excellent!
This doctor listens and hears you write it down for review later.
Excellent experience I do recommend Dr. Linda Fresco to care for my daughter.
Good - she gave me a referral.
