SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Dr. Vaughan is an excellent care giver as is the staff as well.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

The services I received from the care provider are among the best I experienced in other states before moving to California last year.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

We were rushed terribly. Before the doctor had a chance to examine me, there was a knock at the door to inform that the next patient is there. I have never experienced that EVER in any doctor's office. Doctor advised me to request for 40 minutes appt. instead of 20 that was scheduled. Shouldn't the person who scheduled annual exam knew that? The whole appointment was RUSHED and felt very bad at the end. I was not given the prescription requested and the FIT test that was needed to be given. When asked I was told FIT test was out of stock. Many things that went wrong with this appointment.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

I always know I am in "good hands" with Dr. Vaughan.

SHC Patient, May 2016

outstanding, compassionate , brilliant MD! very happy with care!

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Vaughan is exceptional in her position as Primary Care Physician. I have the best possible.

SHC Patient, May 2016

I would recommend my doctor highly to anyone who needs a doctor, but I don't often fine myself seeing anyone who needs a recommendation.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Vaughan is the first Lady doctor for Tara. All before were men. I have been around Doctor's and hospitals all my life, mother and wife were both RN's. Doctor Vaughan is extremely professional and very understanding to Tara's condition. I am VERY pleased with the care she provides for Tara!

SHC Patient, May 2016

Care provider Dr. Vaughan was outstanding as usual.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr Vaughan did her "homework" well. Even though a first visit, it seemed like she already knew me and my medical conditions.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Very responsive physician

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Vaughan should be giving a class on patient care. She makes me feel like it's ok to ask questions, even if I think they are silly. She shows concern. She listens without interrupting and explains things clearly. I wish I would have found her a long time ago.

The doctor was excellent. I recently switched from a HMO and I could definitely tell the difference in care. I felt like the doctor actually cared about me and my well being, not just another number on the board.

I consider Dr. Vaughan a partner with me in achieving the very best health care and knowledge I can.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr Vaughan was awesome!

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Vaughan listened to my concerns about prostate cancer and included me in thought and her knowledge and expertise and ordered a test. In the past she literally saved my life by ordering a endoscopic biopsy that found early stage cancer. By doing this, she saved my life, as the cancer is usually found at a later and terminal stage. I have 100% confidence in her medical knowledge and experience. I am one of a fortunate few to be walking around because of the early diagnosis.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Vaughan - trust with my life - she is great.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

I love my physician - and during this visit she made me feel very comfortable and spent time discussing test results and made sure I understood what was going on.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

I am so happy with Dr. Vaughan. I sent her an email late at night to ask to see her the coming day or the next day. I had an answer in the morning to come and see her that same afternoon. this was wonderful and she answered all my questions and reassured me.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Provider should be allowed a little more time with patient. Realize I had more to discuss at this visit than usual but still felt rushed.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Vaughan took her time going through all my conditions, didn't feel rushed like in my prior places.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Excellent care and support with any and all questions by Dr. Vaughan

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

One of the best primary care physicians I have met.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

I can not praise Dr. Vaughan enough. She is very knowledgeable and smart but also has such a caring and kind "bedside manner". You never feel rushed. She takes all the time that is needed to discuss any concerns you may have. She is the best PCP I have ever had. My husband is also a patient of Dr. Vaughan. He works very long hours and has an unpredictable schedule. Dr. Vaughan is incredibly flexible with her schedule to try to get him into the office for a visit. My husband has never "liked" doctors. But he is very, very impressed with Dr. Vaughan.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

It was worth the long wait to see Dr. Vaughan. I'm very happy to have her as my doctor.
