Dr. Fresco spent about an hour reviewing every possible option for me. It was the most thorough medical appointment I've ever had.

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

I would be happy to recommend the doctor based on skill & expertise. I don't like to recommend doctors anymore because it's too difficult to schedule appointments within a reasonable amount of time.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

outstanding. Dr Fresco took the time she needed to provide what i needed. She did not try to rush.She is fantastic!

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Although I waited a bit for Dr. Fresco, she spent a lot of time with me and made me feel that I was the most important patient. Given this kind of attention, the wait was inconsequential. I am sure she does the same with her other patients. I would not change a thing. Dr Fresco is the best. I feel very well cared for by her.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

The doctor (Dr. Fresco) was wonderful! I highly recommend her!

dr Freaco went above and beyond my expectations and I really felt she cares about me and my well being.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

Dr Fresco always seems to be behind schedule and therefore seems rushed and a bit frazzled during our visits. This has been a repeated experience for me.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

On computer most of visit.

Dr. Linda Fresco was excellent!! she was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, patient & my mom, visiting from Germany, was very impressed by her care!

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

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! :)

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

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. Fresco...it's the way of the world!

Dr Fresco was very professional, she showed genuine interest in my health problem. She checked for other symptoms and explained possible solutions. I left feeling confident in her care.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr. Powell is my normal doctor, but he wasn't available to see me, so I was referred over to Dr. Fresco. She did an excellent job diagnosing and explaining my condition to me. And a handful of printed docs to help me when I left.

In a perfect world Dr. Fresco would not by typing at the computer when taking down reasons for the visit. There would be a less efficient AND more human person to person conversation first. I would rate Dr. Fresco very good, not withstanding.

Could not have been better

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Fresco is very detail oriented. She covered all my problems & concerns.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

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!!

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Fresco listens is reassuring is very thorough & follows up.

Dr. Linda Hannah Fresco is a very good and caring doctor. Her advice has always been very good. I have learned to trust her completely.

SHC Patient, May 2015

More time spent typing into her computer that looking at, or talking to, me. Not sure that she is very thorough.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Dr. Fresco thought my blood pressure was too high and took the time to talk to me about it, which I appreciated.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

I am willing to wait for Dr. Fresco, because she gives me the same extra attention she gives to all her patients.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

this is the best provider I have seen at Menlo medical

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

I already recommend her to a friend.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Consistently excellent!
