SHC Patient, Feb 2019

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

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Garay was extremely thorough taking my medical history and responding to my questions. She also followed up with me regarding obtaining tests from other doctors I recently saw.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018
