SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Doctor allowed time to process information and ask questions about complex issues.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Dr Guillominault was incredibly knowledgeable and kind. I felt well taken care of and confident that I was in the best place to address my problems with sleep and fatigue.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

All caregivers were very professional.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

I cannot thank Doctors Truong, Guilleminault and his medical assistant enough! For the first in a very long while I felt like a patient who was diagnosed, informed and given a treatment plan. Thank all of them.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

staff was extremely caring and understanding.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

A bit rushed, spoke about considering surgery but I never got a call back to schedule an overnight sleep study. I had to call 3x to get one scheduled.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Included second opinion on the spot.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

The service provided by the sleep clinic personnel, particularly the physician, was outstanding.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Dr. Guilleminault was very professional, compassionate, and showed helpful concern. He has a wonderful manner in approaching patients - very honest, direct, yet kine. Both my husband and I like his approach very much. He's experienced and thorough!

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Learned several things I wasn't aware of.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Outstanding. Would pay out of pocket to see him if I had to. Even if I was insured and covered to see other sleep doctors but not covered to see him.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

The two physicians were very capable, friendly, very good bedside manner, confident, concerned, and helpful.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

I'm so thankful to find a doctor who is knowledgable about Ehlers-Danlos.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

great caring staff!

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

Excellent Visit

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

The doctor spent plenty of time explaining things. She was very helpful.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

I have already recommended your Sleep Clinic to others.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

I love Dr. Guilleminault! He's a very caring doctor and his enthusiasm for his patients is so obvious! I wish there were more doctors like him!

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

The doctor was relaxed, patient, and answered all my questions fully.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Really appreciate Dr. Schultz. Worth the travel time from Fernley NV.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Dr. Nguyen was extremely kind and compassionate. I received some potentially scary results an Dif I had burst into tears it would have been okay.

SHC Patient, May 2017

The fellow Dr. Donna Reddy was wonderful! Very understanding, helpful & an advocate for my daughter ? THANK YOU!

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

I just love Dr Christian Guilleminault

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr. Christian Guilleminault went to a great length in helping me securing an overnight sleep study scheduled for the next day. He was kind, sincere, and enthusiastic.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Satisfactory.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Super doctors!

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

experience and concern about my health.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Very good experience.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

The care provider came into the examining room, did then initial examination, then disappeared for about 30 minutes. I had to leave before she came back because I had another appointment.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

Dr. G. is the best. I've had sleep problems for 17 years & felt like I wasn't taken seriously by doctors because I present healthily. He listened and helped me tremendously.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

Everyone took their time with me.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

Dr. G. is certainly well experienced except he's a bit stubborn when it comes to talking alternative Txs.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Not only was I treated like family but my company was very well accommodated and informed as well! Definitely a 5 star facility! I love this hospital!

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Working hard to solve medicine bureaucratic foul up.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. G was on a roll ordering tests & referrals; but was a bit unprofessional in telling me all of what he was ordering should have been ordered at my last appt or by my other specialists.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Technician that performed my ultrasound spoke much too softly, was brusque and did not seem much concerned about me. I'd prefer another technician next time if possible. The remainder were excellent!

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

I enjoyed both doctors.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

I felt very relieved being in there and leaving their knowing about my condition.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

I felt like I was just a numbered patient with little concern for my worries.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Amazed people of this calibre would actually work with just a plain guy like me.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Dr. Chow did an excellent job of answering questions that I originally posed in the days before last year's routine visit. I had not previously been aware that those questions triggered a re-interpretation of my sleep study. Dr. Chow mentioned that someone from the Sleep Center had attempted to contact me but failed. After confirming Stanford's correct understanding of my home phone number (there is a recorder on that number) and confirming no entry in MyHealth, I find this situation to be very strange.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Guillemou etc (sic) is extraordinary

SHC Patient, May 2016

The Stanford medical team is tops in caring, understanding and discussing the issue.

SHC Patient, May 2016

I was very pleased with the explanations of what the doctor felt was wrong and what steps would be taken to move forward.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Both Dr. Lee and Dr. Guillemnault were pleasant, listening very carefully to my concerns, examined me very thoroughly (in the case of Dr. Guillemnault) and answered all my questions. Excellent care from the MDs'.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Guilleminault is excellent and gets a "5" rating. His assistant, I forget her name, was not vey knowledgeable and gets a "2-3" rating. I would not want to see her again.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Good care by doctor. Was referred to another doctor still waiting to hear from this doctor. No resolution to health issue.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

I had excellent care providers. Drs. Christian G & Carlos Dorri were so thorough in their explanation and advices to me.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Excellent in every way!

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

No other specialist has gotten to the root cause of my sleep problems. The physician's (attending, fellow, and resident) were very thorough with my physical assessment and history of my condition. They were the only ones to give me a definitive diagnosis and multiple solutions. HUGE!

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Very knowledgeable & interested in giving me best treatment.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Everything is so good.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

This Dr. is in the top 1%.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. CG was very thorough - more than any other physician I have ever seen! He spent over an hour with me and has been very understanding of my insomnia and obstructive sleep apnea. He took my urgent call while he was in clinic and reassured me everything would be okay and even scheduled me to be seen the very next day. He has been wonderful to work with thus far.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

I am very thankful for the service of the sleep medicine clinid; it changed my life!

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

The PA was lovely patient and detailed. The attending, however, was absolutely unbelievable!!! He noticed every little detail from the manner in which i speak to the size of my nostrils within seconds and was able to tie in my current and previous medical problems in ways i couldn't imagine possible. I have not been well for over a year and for the first time since i got sick i believe i am truly in the most capable hands to dealing with the true cause of my illnesses.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Christian Guilleminault is one of the most thorough, kindest physicians I have ever had the good fortune to see. Almost makes me happy I have sleep apnea. :)

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I always have good experiences. Everyone is pleasant, they listen to my concerns and they suggest changes that will enhance the use of the equipment. This time I asked if I had to bring my BIPAP every time or could I just bring the e-card. The doctor explained that if I called the provider they could put my information from the e-card in the Cloud and I would not have to lug the machine with me to the next appointment. That is a real plus for me and I appreciate him taking the time to inform me.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Terrible bedside manner. Not kind or patient. Not informative. Really, it's time to hang up th coat. WORST & most humiliating experience.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Very impressed with overall treatment etc., at sleep clinic. There was a supervising doctor, and two attendees both very good. I appreciated the substantive care, and the bed-side manner.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Guilleminault is easily one of the best doctors I have ever had for my health care.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Everybody at the practice is focused on shovelling people through. Now you have experts in the field teaching residents to rush. The dr. was only interested in what he could see of my body. Must not believe in histories.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

I saw Dr. Robinson & Dr. Kawaii from the sleep clinic. Both were great.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

I have confidence in this doctor by his explanation of my problem.

SHC Patient, May 2014

I was extremely tired from trip, was discouraged from taking notes. Wish I had.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

Excellent bedside manner. Very pleasant experience.

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

Physician was not very information on condition/what to expect/procedure.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

Very caring, relaxed and informational.
