SHC Patient, Aug 2019

I wish she was a bit more personable and pronounced my name correctly, but she's kind and fine for referring me to specialists (which is mainly why I see her). I know she has the textbook knowledge, but doesn't seem to convey any professional experienced opinions (seems to just give me printouts as opposed to knowing things). She just still comes off as very green/new.

I have been to many doctors in my lifetime...Dr Ly, beats them all in treatment. My initial thought was that she may be young to treat seniors....she is very well educated....a superior physician...kind & considerate...and is giving me high quality care

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

I came in wanting to know more about the symptoms I was experiencing - willing to do blood tests, ect. But the doctor was quick to prescribe medication and didn't really listen to my concerns or why I wanted to have an appointment

SHC Patient, May 2017

Outstanding physician. Excellent visit.

SHC Patient, May 2017

Dr. Ly was great. The tech who did my EKG was the best I've ever had. She excelled in all aspects of her job. She went over and above to help me and also help the doctor. Not only that but she was REALLY nice. If I had a special evaluation to do on that employee she would rate the best I've ever had at the clinic. I've been going to the Menlo Clinic since about 1970. I've worked with lots of different employees and she was about the best if not the best. Please tell her that. (Sorry. I can't remember her name.)

SHC Patient, May 2017

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Dr. Ly is professional, friendly, seemingly competent and always takes the time to make sure I understand the diagnosis and resultant care, if any.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

I have already recommended my provider to several friends and family

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

I was attempting to find a doctor that specialized in older adults within the Stanford systems...nothing...was ready to go outside of the system...Was hoping to find a seasoned physician..I was a bit apprehensive of such a young physician...Dr. Tiffany Ly is outstanding....have never encountered such a knowledgeable caring physician.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

she's top notch

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Tiffany Ly is excellent!! I am so lucky to have such a bright, cheerful, knowledgeable & friendly doctor!!

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Dr. Ly is professional, caring & confidence inspiring.

SHC Patient, May 2016

My PCC is extremely knowledgable, cautious, well prepared but she shows no enthusiasm or passion for her job. Even a small smile, a minute of personal banter or something "relatable" would make it so much more pleasant to see her. It might not be fully reasonable to expect a more positive & personal experience but I have been "spoiled" by doctors like Dr Rachael Seaman and Dr Jordy Lawry at the Menlo Clinic.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Ly is the BEST!

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Dr. Ly is extremely detailed in offering information and appropriate care

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Dr. Ly listens really well. She took the time to show me the limitations of various antibiotics in dealing with my infection. I am allergic to penicillin and sulfa so I appreciated all the time she took. I had a lot of questions because I had had an unsuccessful colonoscopy and then three days later developed a bladder/kidney infection that sent me to the ER.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

She is a very caring, understanding doctor.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

informative and sincerely concerned

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

good

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Very good experience. Hope overall that docs can spend less time on computers. Dr. Ly needs a transcriber.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

I was very impressed with this doctor. I actually phoned a friend right after to recommend her, as my friend is looking for a new GP.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

My doctor does make notes on the documents for me. I appreciate that & would like even more detail because I have a lot of data I deal with on a daily basis. The more I can have things documented, the better because it is sometimes hard to recall all the details.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Ly is very patient and you know she listens to you

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Li is very concerned about my health & very caring.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Ly has a gift for being very compassionate and helpful. She always says to come back if you still do not feel well after the appointment. She is a great doctor! I have trust in her. She is also extremely knowledgeable of medicine. You can tell she wants to help you!

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Tiffany Ly is an outstanding doctor. She is highly experienced, but manages to speak to the patient in very understandable every-day language. She is both respectful of privacy, but is also able to ask important questions with delicate sensitivity. I found her personality, composure, and attitude to be second-to-none. This was a highly positive experience, and I would recommend this doctor to anyone I know.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

I could not ask for a better Doctor!!! In every way. She's very intelligent, knowledgeable and empathetic. I have complete confidence in her. She makes sure I get all the info I need and that I understand what my options are. She's always available for me. I would give her an A+.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

DR Ly is a caring physician and has been very responsive to my medical needs. I'm very appreciative of her efforts to address my medical issues.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

very good

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Ly is THE BEST!

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

This was my first visit with Dr. Ly, who is my new primary care physician following the departure of my previous PCP. I really appreciated that Dr. Ly wanted to order a test that seems very appropriate for my situation. (My previous PCP was delaying this inexpensive, low risk test for years, which was causing me concern.)

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

I like my PCP. Took awhile to find one and I feel confident and comfortable with Dr Ly.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

very responsive. very thorough physical exam (I know because I am also a doctor)

SHC Patient, May 2015

I had to find a new Primary Care Physician. I really liked Dr Ly. She seemed very competent and caring.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Very good - I look forward to my next visit.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

I'm very grateful to have Dr. Ly as my PCP. She has definitely gone above and beyond what is expected, ranging from a phone call during her administrative day to extending a consult. She shows true compassion, professionalism, care and discipline - all of which I greatly admire.
