Very responsive to my comments and concerns
Difficult of assess confidence on first visit but she seemed competent.
Dr. Le was so knowledgeable. Several doctors on Maui never found the neurological problem i had. For 3years i have been hospitalized numerous times, rushed by 911 to the ER, for seizure-like tremors and involuntary vocalizations, like growling, beyond my control. She found the problem and offered solition, and weeks later i have had zero episodes. Dr. Le is Super Woman/Doctor
After test was done, NO ONE called me about the results or a follow-up appointment. After several weeks I called, they sent my report and I had to ask for a follow up appointment.
Very thorough & professional & compassionate.
The dr is very good and knowledgeable but she needs more time to help her patients.
Amazing very caring doctors and staff.
Low on follow through with lab results & prescription.
Dr. Le was excellent!
Again questions like "why you are not working?" or "what classes you take, name them in college" has nothing to do with my health.
Didn't understand when she said it was a metabolic problem.
Doctor very impressive.
Dr. tried to view MRI's disc on 3 separate computers but service was down. Dr. said she would call me after viewing MRI's and discussing them with radiologist. I received a call in 2 days.
Time doctor spent in explaining condition in a way I could easily understand.
Very productive experience each time I visited - thanks.
