SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Dr. told me I would experience tingling when in fact the testing caused great pain to the point of causing me to cry. She offered nothing except to finish up hurriedly & leave the room no one came back for 10 minutes so I left - very upset.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Doctor did not reply to 2 memos regard my pain issues.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Very satisfied with my doctors, I feel like they truly want to help me and my situation.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Provider has failed to respond to an important, time-sensitive follow up request sent through MyHealth two weeks ago and again last week.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Never prepared me for the painful electrical taser applied to my body. Never explained the volts of electricity going through my body. VERY disappointed and upset with this procedure.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

She was kind, professional and made me feel confident in her abilities.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

It seemed that Dr Gowda needed to talk to my cardiologist about certain treatment which I thought should have been done already!

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Perhaps this was a busy day or some medical providers were absent but this provider was curt and would not answer questions I had about the EMG I received.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Dr. Gowda was thorough and scholarly in her exam. Very impressed.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Expected & pre appt info said to expect long office visit - Barely got 15 min.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I'm once again happy with service; just didn't have good amount of time to get my point across or questions, I was cut short, requested to stop my expression. (Needed more compassion & comfortable expression & response.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

First time dr. visits (new) good experience, caring & concerning my health & wellness care & treatments.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

Will never return to the doctor or clinic again. Doctor very short with me.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

Awesome-

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

We received satisfactory care from me pain management clinic.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

The doctor was not well prepared. The MRI reports had already been given but the doctors did not take the effort to ask his assistant for it. When I question the assistant, she gave me the copy.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

She (dr.) was outstanding; very easy to understand & compassionate.
