SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Very friendly and down to earth!

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Good experience

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

I have now seen Dr. Pugliese three times. I only wish she could be my primary care provider. She is so caring, honest, and willing to spend the time necessary to explain her thought process in diagnosing a very difficult set of symptoms. Even without a clear diagnosis, she gave me confidence that I was being well cared for.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Pugliese combines professionalism and competence with warmth and compassion. She made me feel at ease while delivering the best possible care.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

I'm very pleased with the care I receive from Dr. Silvina Pugliese. I also appreciate her very thorough after visit summary which included a photo of a new discolored spot on my right upper lip. I feel very reassured by Dr. Pugliese's follow-up plan for the Lentigo vs pigmented AK.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

My first experience was very satisfactory she spoke my same language and I could talk a lot better of my problem. She was always concerned and giving options.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

She is very kind, competent & very friendly.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

DR. PUGLIESE IS AN ASSET TO STANFORD HOSPITAL!

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

All of those involved were very professional, courteous, friendly, and engaging, including the doctor, resident, and assistant.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Dr. Pugliese is delightful. She is very knowledgeable and has a good sense of humor.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

When my allergy in the skin was more serious each time, they recommended Stanford Hospital to me & I was excellently attended for the most part I can recommend it to all my family & friends even to the people that I don't even know.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Stanford is the best care

She was amazing, as usual. My treatment had kind of stagnated, and instead of just letting that continue, she talked through several options going forward, and definitely considered my opinion.

Primary care provider displayed superlative knowledge of her specialty while acting on her plans promptly & decisively.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Every visit to see this doctor is pleasant and leaves me confident that my dermatology needs are in capable hands. She has a wonderful bedside manner and gives me information regarding my skin conditions that are easy to understand. I ask a lot of questions and ask her to look at spots that seem weird or new to me (I have many moles), and she takes my concerns in stride and is happy to address my worries, even when I think they seem excessive. I am so happy to have found this doctor. All of my visits with her have been very comfortable, friendly, and not rushed. Every time I leave her office, I feel as though my concerns and issues were addressed. I would highly recommend her to others!

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Good.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Dr. Pugliese went above and beyond trying to reach my on the phone to explain the diagnosis. She persistently tried calling until I was able to pick up. Knowing how busy she must be, this was truly exceptional and made me feel very well cared for.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Pleasant and thorough experience.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

The care provider was excellent! She was so kind and compassionate.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

My provider was clearly very smart and capable. She provided good treatment, but care and concern seemed lacking - I felt like a cookie-cutter patient rather than a person with individual needs that deserved attention and explanation.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Very informative, trying hard to find out what is wrong with me.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

I especially like appt. times - In other clinics the dr. is rushed. Not Dr. Pugliese she takes the time to thoroughly cover all issues.

All good.

Dr. Pugulsie was outstanding!
