we talked about certain recommendations the doctors had for me and they were going to be in the summary of my visit notes but they weren't there when the receptionist printed out the summary.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

I feel fortunate to have this outstanding and caring physician as my doctor. She is continually aware and monitoring all aspects of my medical care. When clarification is required, I will receive an evening phone call from her!

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Our doctor mostly punted this appointment to a young doctor who didn't know my mother and, judging from the notes on my health, misunderstood a lot. This is understandable because my mother is 95 and doesn't hear well, but it would have been better with my mother's regular doctor. We came for a regular checkup. While we were there my reported some pain in her upper arms. Between the two doctors, they both felt her upper arms, which caused her additional pain, but both did so through her clothes. Neither actually looked at her arms.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Dr. Paul is very patient and effective.

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Dr. Paul give my mother excellent care thru the years. She is very warm, attentive and responsive to my inquiries thru my heath.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr. Paul is wonderful. It is difficult having a parent with dementia, but having Dr. Paul as mom's physician makes it much easier to handle. Knowing Dr. Paul gives me strength to handle the say to day issues.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

I have balance problems and think she might have addressed them by giving me suggestions for exercises that might help.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Dr.Paul is an exceptionally fine doctor. She is professional, warm, a great diagnostician and follows through immediately.

Dr. Paul has guided my care during a crisis very effectively and minimized a serious situation and kept me out of hospital.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

One of the best we have seen at Stanford.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

I always have a very good experience with my care provider, call me to let me know about my lab result. And that's very good.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

The job of a caregiver (daughter) of a dementia person can be very challenging. Every day I am grateful that Dr. Paul is my mother's physician. Just knowing she is there if I need her makes this an easier time. Dr. Paul is the best!!
