SHC Patient, Feb 2016

NQFB is awesome and fantastic. I have only great things to say about her.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Edward Sheen and Dr. Linda Nguyen did an excellent job of listening to Martina and showing concern and compassion along with professional advice regarding a plan to diagnosis and treat Martina's chronic health problems and pain.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Excellent quality of care.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

I wasn't clear on what the details of the procedures. It was well explained the day of/during the testing.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

I was very impressed with Josephina. She did not get rushed and truly seemed to want to help me and get to the bottom of my medical issues.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

I love her! She is a great listener. Even when she thinks my own diagnosis is wrong, she will explore the possibility.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

I was very impressed with what an outstanding listener she was. Treated me with respect & intelligence. I appreciated that she checked my understanding.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Care provider was sweet, caring, kind, thoughtful.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Excellent care by Dr. Fernandez-Becker!

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

very good provider.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

No complaints! I found out what I needed to know - - now I can move on!

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

She is very caring and genuine. Has one of the best "bed-side" manners I've ever experienced. Friendly, warm, even remembered me although I haven't been there in about 6 months. Careful listener, thoughtful, measured approach to getting me well again.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Dr. Fern-Beck is very nice - this was 1st time seeing her in clinic & she didn't have all my prev. info I'd given Dr. Gray.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Wish she was quicker to get into. She is the best gastroenterologist I've had in four states. Super responsive on MyHealth - Greatly appreciated.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Dr. Fernandez-Becker was very thorough and impressed me with the amount of time she was prepared to spend with me.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Just think digestive health is a tough area and really needs holistic type model and savvy testing.

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

Phenomenal doctor!

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

Appeared to me that the dr. no longer remembered my care. Dr. referred me to another dr. for follow up on issue which had been discussed in intral visit.

SHC Patient, May 2014

She was really very understanding, professional and reachable. She was by far the best doctor I have interacted in Stanford Hospital & Clinics. I have had couple bad experiences in ER and w/some other doctors. She is by far above Stanford's standards.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Dr. & her assistant were very kind and caring. Dr. Fernandez-Becker is one of my best doctors at Stanford!

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

My overall experience with Dr. Fernandez - Becker has been wonderful. She is an EXCELLENT provider!!!
