SHC Patient, May 2016

Always a pleasure with Doctor Lutchman.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Good so far.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Everything was going ahead of time. It's excelent

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

I always recommend Stanford Clinic to friends & family. I always feel well taken care of by my dr. & other health care providers.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

I don't think it is too much to ask that my care provider take the time to look me directly in the face instead of a computer monitor and at least do a minimal physical examination. As we all know, the color of the whites of eyes, skin tone and texture can tell a lot about a patient's condition, especially when dealing with liver issues. Every time I have see this physician he has seemed either to be in a great hurry or distracted. Has yet to ask about my experience with a newly approved medication that he prescribed or about any possible side effects that I may have experienced.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

The doctor was nice. I felt rushed out of the office. I knew that it would be from my first office visit. Same was my fault, I lost my questions I wrote down. I could of gotten that over the phone. I drive a long way, I get lost, all for 5 min visit. I do not need to drive a 100 miles, to have my chart looked at, tell me over the phone. Unless the doctor needs to touch or look or has BAD news.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Glen is helping me explaining in well manner.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I felt this doctor had no idea of my past issues and didn't take anything seriously. He had to go back and look at multiple past labs after I pressed instead of just looking at the most current to see what the issue was to begin with any other doctor I have had at your facility has definitely shown more professionalism and care. It was only after multiple times of persistent pressure concerning my treatment that he gave us some information and even then it was nothing different then what we had been told by the other liver specialist. I am definitely not happy and will not ever be returning to this doctor unless I have no other choice.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Provider stated he was ill, didn't have test results done 3 wks. prior I had to ask about additional testing, didn't seem concerned which has been his standard throughout treatment.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Dr.Lutchman is a very professional in his career, he listen my concern carefully, he answer and explain very clear, he has very good knowledge in his field. His treatment is very accurate and safe my life. He is the best. Thank you.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

provider is rude and doesn't know how to speak to patients with kindness who are very ill and have a hard time taking some information that was difficult to understand. very strict provider would not likely to continue to see him

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

All good.
