Best Intenal Medicine Doctor in the Bay Area. Caring, competent, professional who loves what she does.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Garay is outstanding. Her communication and explanations are clear and complete. She's open to all my questions, which I always have. I feel she is really looking out and problem solving; we've been trying to sort out lingering issues from last year's pneumonia and she's been escalating the exploration so appropriately, right up referring me to a pulmonary specialist at Stanford. I feel she is looking out for my complete health picture and is really covering all the bases.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Garay was able to get a procedure scheduled for me that I was not able to get for myself. She was also able to expedite and specialist appt that I could not get!

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

My experience at MMC has been unsatisfactory. Making an appointment to be seen for my annual physical was difficult. Dr. nurse sent verification that it was past due and I made appointment through phone to schedule it though the day of my appointment the doctor did not know I was scheduled for a physical hence a "mini physical". added wait/ an hour / with an appointment is unacceptable. I would like for the doctor to be present in the room with me during my appointment as opposed to her being on the computer doing the electronic record keeping/ scribe would be helpful to provide quality care.My doctor is one of the best in the business/Stanford Health Care! I have confidence and trust in her medical knowledge and expertise. The extended wait time at MMC with an appointment is unacceptable. The inability of my doctor to be present during my visit with her due to electronic record keeping during my appointment time does not create a caring environment that helps me heal.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Garay is so thorough & complete. Very much appreciate all her time!

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Dr. Garay is everything a person could want in a physician. Competent, caring, concerned careful. Following up on test results, she explained my results, outlined options to for that investigate my condition, summarized current practices and research -- all in an easily understood manner. She had gone through my prior records, so she could suggest were progression of my condition likely falls. I could feel her concern for me. I appreciated how up-to-date her medical knowledge is.

Dr Garay was great turning a bad situation around. The system failed me but not the Doctor. I asked for instructions to be event to LabCorp for blood work. When I got there no instructions could be found. I called the nurse and she fax them to this lab. I went the next day. When Dr. Garay looked at the results two key tests were missing. The samples were still at the lab so they could run the tests. All round a very disappointing experience.

Dr. Susan Garay has been my doctor for close to 19 years. She is the best doctor I have had and I hope someone takes a moment to recognize her. I am an HR Executive in Silicon Valley and sharing great feedback directly is very important and it can be inspiring. More specifically, Dr. Garay is diligent, thoughtful, gracious and very good at what she does. She goes the extra mile and her diligence ensured that my husband had a follow up colon examination which was potentially life saving. Her follow though is exceptional and I trust that she is being appreciated by her senior mgt.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Garay has been my care provider for many years. She is incredibly thorough in her review of my records and in her questioning of my current health. She spends the time needed to explain her treatment, to answer my questions and to make me feel comfortable. I have her full attention during my visits. I have recommended her to colleagues who have relocated to the Bay Area. In the past, she has called me at home in the evening to see how I'm doing and even called me the night before Thanksgiving several years ago just to make sure I was feeling okay and prepared for an upcoming surgery. I trust her to make good decisions/recommendations about my health and well being.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

If anything, the doctor explained too much. I mentioned that I had taken the same medications and inhaler before, but she spent time reexplaining method of use and side effects. I guess this is good in case people misuse meds or are ignorant of side effects, but for me it was a time sink since I needed to get back to work. However, I didn't interrupt her explanations either.
