SHC Patient, Jan 2016

I was impressed and pleased that I never felt rushed. He took plenty of time to answer all my questions and discuss options.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Very very good dr. Stanford Bay always had & will always have awesome well educated Dr.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

I have the utmost confidence and trust in Dr Kushida and his health plan for me

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Overall we was good. First seen by Dr. Ashbrook, then Koshida. Felt a lack of urgency in solving problem for better or worse; but were very competent and knowledgeable. Overall 8/10.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Excellent intake by fellow MD. Almost overly courteous! Listened well. EXTREMELY brief visit with attending - showed concern & next steps. Was afraid to guess at source of problem.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Provider left me quickly without explain next step, or without making sure next step was followed. I felt be dealt with like a junk!

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

I like this guy a lot. I feel confident in him.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

DRs. are very caring, understanding, compassionate, professional.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Concern by referring dr. were NOT addressed.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

Good experience.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Good.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

Did not get the help I needed to use the CPAP mask effectively - sent me to Apria office where they did not provide needed help either.
