Dr. Wallace is a very compassionate Physician.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Dr Kevin Wallace is the greatest doctor I've ever known! He took the time after my initial visit to dig into my issues and then recommended a course of action that may have saved my life. I'm not sure the average doctor would have done what Dr Wallace did for me. He is fantastic, cares about his patients and delivers professional advice in a way that made me feel great -- even in hard circumstances.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Visit is rather rushed.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

DR Wallace is spectacular such a nice man. very thoughtful and knowledgeable

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

I recently switched to Menlo Medical Clinic for my primary care (at the recommendation of a friend) because I was having a truly terrible experience with my previous PCP. My experience at Menlo Medical Clinic has been 100% better. I have met with Dr. Wallace 3 times now, and each he has done an excellent job of bringing his professional expertise to the room while also leaving space to listen to me as a patient. He is thorough and thoughtful in both assessing and addressing whatever issues I'm having. He gives clear information in ways I can understand. He also asks for follow-up from me as appropriate, which makes me feel that he cares if the treatment approach is actually working. It also makes me feel like it's okay to contact him if I'm continuing to have issues in spite of treatment. (This may seem basic, but I can assure you based on my past experiences, it is NOT.) He is respectful. He takes the amount of time needed with me. He makes referrals when appropriate and they are helpful. I feel that Dr. Wallace does a great job of allowing me to be a constructive partner in my health care plan. I feel that he has already helped me improve my health in a very short amount of time, and I believe that I am much more likely to have / am already having much more positive medical outcomes under his care than under the care of my previous PCP. My husband often attends appointments with me, especially because of my past negative experiences, and he also says the difference in quality of care is night and day. He is also deeply impressed and appreciative of Dr. Wallace and Menlo Medical Clinic. I cannot express my appreciation enough, nor can I rate Dr. Wallace and Menlo highly enough.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

dr Wallace was professional and friendly

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. Wallace was excellent at focusing on the critical issues and worked to expedite appropriate diagnostic tests, and medical care. I was very pleased.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

very good

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

The appointment felt a little rushed. However, I also felt the doctor did his best to get all the necessary information, took the time to answer any questions I had, and made sure I was involved in all decisions about my care. This is my first time seeing this PCP, and I feel optimistic about our ability to work constructively together.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Wallace is the most thorough and caring doctor I have ever seen. He is responsive to messages on MyHealth and encourages open communication. He also reaches out to my other doctors to help coordinate my care. He is truly wonderful, and I am thankful to be his patient.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Words can not describe my complete satisfaction with Dr Wallace

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

The doctor seems brilliant. I can see why people recommend him. I do think his bedside manner could use some improvement. He spends most of his time looking at his computer. He gives the impression that he is incredibly competent and really analyzing everything you say. He just doesn't make it clear if he cares very much. So I have no doubt I will receive good care, but he doesn't necessarily invite confidence. I want to give him more time because ultimately having a brilliant doctor who knows what he's doing might be more important than a warm fuzzy doctor who doesn't, but I do genuinely wish his bedside manner was better developed.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

All medical experiences were accomplished at the highest professional level.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Wallace is an excellent GP.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Doctor has been tremendous and forthright in telling me what I need to know to now to firstly attend to current health needs and address my health maintenance needs.

Dr. Wallace is extremely personable and knowledgeable.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

I was blown away by how helpful, thoughtful, and thorough Dr. Wallace was during my appointment. He really listened to me and was genuine in his interest in helping me get better. He was also extremely knowledgeable about specific ear conditions despite not being an ENT specialist. I was extremely impressed by him and would absolutely recommend him to others.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Wallace with very knowledgeable and experienced, and thorough. He's excellent. Thank you for the great care.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

good experience

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Wish the doctor would speak louder.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Wallace is extremely thorough and answers questions with concern.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Wallace is a good MD & care about my well being to a degree. He seems too speedy for a primary care MD dealing with a senior citizen. He speaks too quickly for me to grasp some of what he says.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

I was very impressed with the doctor's completeness and follow up phone call, with ultrasound results much sooner than expected!

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Wallace is a good MD. Menlo Clinic staffing is generally first rate.
