SHC Patient, Dec 2020

Very approachable, caring.

SHC Patient, Nov 2020

I was treated with respect and concern for my unknown pain condition by Dr. Krishnapriyan. She prescribed and referred me in the appropriate direction to manage my pain. I appreciated the time she took for all my questions and concerns.

SHC Patient, Jun 2020

Overall the visit went well and the doctor was caring. Occasionally I felt, it would've been even better if I was given a little bit more time to provide the details completely before rushing to the medical advice.

SHC Patient, May 2020

I was impressed by the amount of time the doctor gave me and listened to all my issues with care

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

I had a great experience for a first time visitor.

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

Dr. Geeta was amazing to diagnose my colon cancer @ an early stage. I was operated well in time & must say she saved my life. I have already referred couple of my friends to her.

SHC Patient, Feb 2020

Dr. Krishna was prompt and provided excellent care. She listened very well to my concerns and made eye contact the entire time. She was not dismissive at all, and I felt that she treated me the way she would treat a family member.

SHC Patient, Feb 2020

Everything is excellent experience. Nothing bad at all.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Doctor is very insensitive! She didn't even ask me once why I visited her clinic that day. She was busy digging my medical history and was focussed on only one thing when I actually visited her to discuss my other health issue and wanted a referral from her, something that was ignored totally till I had to remind her myself towards the end. It was almost end of my appointment time, so she hurried and gave some vague advice. Totally disappointed! I am never going back to her!!

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

outstanding

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Good meeting

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

i felt she wasn't listening to me. i was obviously stressed and upset and i felt she didn't care and she just made me more stressed. i felt she wasnt on my side and that she was judging me. im truly not a complaining person. this was a tough visit for me.

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Dr Geeta is simply great .. she diagnosed Colon Cancer just on the basis of the blood test results. I was operated in time and was saved. I have referred few other friends who have the history of cancer to Dr Geeta.

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Dr Krishna has been my internal doctor for many years now and the reason why I never change my doctor because of her compassion to listen to your health problems. She's very easy to talk to and she shows that she cares

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Dr. Krishna is very knowledgable and personable. I always find it very easy to talk to her.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

I have noticed in my previous visits and this visit too that she always is in a rush to talk herself and doesn't give too much importance to patients concerns. she just brushes of the questions asked as if they are all unnecessary. She doesn't show concern to problems and looks uncomfortable when I ask questions about my problem or treatment.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

I saw the doctor Krishnapriyan. I was thrilled that I was not relegated to a nurse practitioner or anyone else. As I told you before I was very pleased with my medical visit and all my questions and needs were met.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

Good

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Dr. Krishna was excellent in communication and she was friendly and courteous.

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

Dr. Krishna was incredibly thorough in gathering information from me relevant to my health concern. she took the time to make sure she was accurately understanding my problem and concerns and made me feel very heard. Dr. Krishna also spoke out loud so that I could hear her thought process in prescribing me certain medications, and even checked in with me about my past health history to ensure my new medications would be appropriate at this time. Dr. Krishna even remembered my current profession and place of work which made me feel very welcome in her office. I had a great experience with Dr. Krishna and I would not hesitate to refer others to her. she is truly a fantastic doctor.

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

doctor talks more than listening to patient

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

spent exceptional time getting to know me as a new patient and addressing all my health concerns

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

I was extremely pleased with the provider and the whole encounter.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

It was generally fine, but the entire appointment felt rushed. They didn't ask if I had any other questions at the end, although I had already asked some, so maybe they thought they didn't need to ask me anymore.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Definitely recommending to others. what an amazing experience

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

not sure why so much rush to complete assessment. Not passionate towards their work & patient won't be not all comfortable.my wait time is more than doctor spent time with me.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

great experience. though I was new, she read all my History and was well prepared

SHC Patient, May 2019

very good

SHC Patient, May 2019

Very smart and efficient.

SHC Patient, May 2019

SHC Patient, May 2019

My experience was mostly good, but as a transgender person, the way Dr. Krishna talked about my body and gender made me feel deeply uncomfortable, and hurt my confidence in her knowledge of trans health and trans people. It is not appropriate or in line with modern terminology to ask a trans man if they plan to "remain female" or to refer to their body or "female below the waist," or indeed to ask about what someone's genitals look like at all without making the medical need for that information clear. There are many resources for provider on care for transgender patients - UCSF has a guide on their website, for example - and demonstrating an awareness of trans people's health concerns and specific needs as well as using appropriate, accurate, and up-to-date terminology will go a long way toward helping future trans patients feel comfortable and safe in your care, and more comfortable accessing health care in general.

SHC Patient, May 2019

It was an overall great experience

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

good

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

I was very impressed with Dr. Krishna. Being a new patient, I thought she spent an generous amount of time getting to know me and my medical history as well as answering any questions I had during the visit. It's much appreciated and not always the same experience with other providers.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

good

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. Krishna is very competent, friendly, and has a great bedside manner. She spends just the right amount of time with me during my visits. I leave feeling like we have a "plan" in place. My only concern is getting appointments as she has become very busy. When you have a moderate issue (not life threatening), it can be problematic to wait 3-4 days before you can be seen. I have used the MyHealth portal to communicate at times and that is helpful. I also can get a quicker appointment if I feel I need to and I mention it to the staff, however, that can be problematic mentally as I don't want to overburden the doctor and staff unless I feel certain I can't wait. That can be a difficult decision sometimes.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Krishnapiyan or her staff. Always feel I receive the best of care, attention and courtesy.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

It would be great if the doctor could explain the side effects of the drugs prescribed.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Krishna fit in to her schedule even though she had a family emergency. I had been traveling in the UK and came back with a horrible ear ache, sore throat, and cough. Dr. Krishna saw me when I really needed some medical help. She is the best.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Krishnapriyan is a great physician. As a new patient establishing care after all of my recent medical complications, I felt comfortable in that she had already reviewed my records prior to seeing me. She was thorough in her explanations and recommendations. She took the time to get to know me, my family history, and addressed all of my concerns. I was very pleased with the way she practices.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

i have recommended Dr. K already

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

I like the doctor and she is friendly and professional. She seem to be very busy and rush to finish my appointment.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Excellect experience.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Everything felt extremely rushed, much more than any other appointment I had. The doctor almost missed a key condition I need care for. Despite being mentioned on the form, I had to remind after I noticed the appointment was effectively over. The doctor made many recommendations for changes in medication, diet, habits, etc., but everything felt extremely standard, non-personalized, without much explanation or consideration for my own particularities or perspective. I felt as if I was getting getting healthcare recommendations from a phone app.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Dr Krishna is excellent and I've been patient for many years.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

great doctor

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. K and her staff are awesome and I would recommend her to all my family and friends.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Have always received excellent care by Dr. Krishnapriyan.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

I've been going to Dr. Geeta for many years and she is always very kind in regards to any medical issues - And is very pleasant to talk to.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Great physician - very thorough and friendly.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Even though experienced, dr. was in a rush, monotonic and just robotic. She did not express empathy or show care.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

I thought she was not answering my questions with concern. I didn't find her listening to me and my reasons. She may not be wrong, but just a wrong choice for me sincerely trying to change my primary care provider.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

The visit was to confirm my pregnancy. It was my first one, so I had a lot of questions. However, the physician seemed to rush me out of the room. She did not ever let me finish my questions. I will not go back to Dr. Krishna as my PCP.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Dr. Krishnaprlyan listens carefully to my concerns and addresses each one. She speaks in a clear and very respectful manner. I am very happy with her services.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Great doctor & staff.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Dr. Krishna is the BEST! I should know @ 77 1/2! And 22 major surgeries so far!

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

The doctors behavior was very cold, I didn't feel welcome even my husband felt the same way.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Dr. Krishna is a great doctor!

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

I am well into my 2nd decade w/Dr. Krisha because of her professionalism, openness, accessibility and authenticity.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Felt very rushed. Multitasking at computer while discussing concerns.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Good experience.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Fair.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

She doesn't care about the issues I am presenting, I can tell she's just rushing me out.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Will not visit this provider again. Even though we tried to communicate our concerns the doctor was not ready to listen. The visit felt like she was rushing to catch a flight and wanted us to be out.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Good.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Good experience.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Very good experience will definitely recommend.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Dr. Krishna continues to make me feel confident that she has my best interests in mind. I feel VERY comfortable with her.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Everyone was very warm - The staff all seemed to get their cue from Dr. Geeta.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Care provider (doctor) was super fast in asking & answering questions.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

She is a good doctor, just too fast, talks rapidly and seems to be in a hurry.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Very good experience.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

The doctor spent less than five minutes with us. She just came in, started talking very fast and gave a new medicine and left. She just told us to do another 2 week follow up.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

She was so nice.

SHC Patient, May 2017

V good.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

I felt extremely comfortable with Dr. Krishnapriyan she listened, and was very easy to talk to.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Good experience.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Doctor was annoyed I asked her to sign a letter of medical necessity for FSA. That's how FSA works. You use it or lost it and ... for necessary treatment. Sorry to have to take literally longer than it takes to make this comment to fill out my form.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Very happy with the care.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr. Krishna is forthright - Really really like her )COMPARING HER TO PAST DOCTORS).

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Dr Krishnapriyan is very effective but she's unlikely to include me in decisions about my treatment. She showed less patient to listening my concern. Nor ask "any questions?" less care.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

I always feel there is hurrying through the appointment, not giving enough time to communicate.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Dr. Geeta Krishnapriyan was very efficient, empathy, concern care, listened and great knowledge pinpoint exact symptoms for speedy recover.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

I particularly appreciate the fact that Dr. Krishnapriyan focuses on women's health.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Dr. Krishna is a great doctor for me @ 20+ years!!

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

The doctor left the exam room without a word. Took me a minute to understand it was finished and she just left without goodbye & she judged my choices regarding vaccines and flu shot for me and my son.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Good experience.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Krishnapriyan is a fantastic doctor!

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

My first impression with Dr. Krishna is that she is very knowledgeable and confident about what she's saying and she's very nice to me. I'd like her to be my primary doctor.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

I like her.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Krishnapriyan is the best!!!

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Krishnaprayan has been my primary care for more than 15 years and consider her as my family and friend.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Extremely rushed, did remember history, was in the room for less than 10 min. (annual physical!) did not seem inclined to discuss anything - Was in a hurry.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

We have recommended.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Dr. Geeta Krishnapriyan is very efficient no listening and explaining. Refers to best practitioners when needed. I totally trust her on any advice she gives.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

It would be great to leave with some written instructions for medications and referrals.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Krisha also brought in another doctor for a consultation - very helpful.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Prefer dr spend more time & not rush.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

I had gone for my annual physical check up - breast exam was not done nor was it discussed. I wasn't even asked to change into a gown.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Krishna is a caring physician. Spent time with the patient and speaks directly to the patient.

She was in the examination room less than 10 min., when I had questions she was dismissive & didn't seen to care.

She is very professional and pleasant.
