SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Dr. Wallace is outstanding..

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Dr. Wallace requested that the appointment time be extended since I was a new patient with an emergent condition. He carefully recorded the symptoms I described, asking questions which helped me remember other symptoms that I would not have connected to the current one. Very clearly explained the follow up.

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Dr. Wallace is amazing and is very adept at handling my complicated health issues.

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Exceptionally thoughtful care by Dr Wallace

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Dr. Wallace is clearly a skilled physician. He listens carefully, diagnoses issues with confidence, and talks through his thought process. I am thankful for his thoroughness and his ability to ask questions clearly.

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Of all the doctors I have seen at Stanford and other PCPs I have had in the Bay Area, I would say that Dr. Wallace is my favorite. I hope to continue having him as my doctor. he is very knowledgeable and caring.

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, Jun 2019

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

good

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.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

also recommended the care provider to my wife. we recently arrived in California from Germany and were both looking for a primary doctor.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

great people

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

good

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

The doctor wanted to know all the details of the medical history although it was not directly the related to the reason of my visit.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr. Wallace is sharp, caring, thorough, and patient. I have confidence in him and his ability to manage my care.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Too much engaged with the computer. I felt like I am not listened to and rushed mostly.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

dermatologist and her nurse are the best

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr. Wallace instills great confidence and provides high quality care.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Overall a good experience but would prefer the doctor be looking at me rather than typing away and looking at the computer screen.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr. Wallace was great and seemed to really care about me as a patient.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

I was very pleased

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

The most comprehensive and expert physical exam I have ever received. Dr Wallace gets A++, 100%. Nothing missed. Speedy follow-up. An amazing experience. I am awed.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

had to rush through my questions. doctor seemed to be in a hurry. therefore I forget to mention other health issues I have

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Knowledgeable and friendly doctor. He listens and responds to all questions, however mostly looks at the computer screen during conversation. On the plus side was able to pull lot of information from the system other doctors did not even see. On the downside, one feels like he is not listening or paying attention while he actually is.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

very good first meeting

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Very good

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Very good doctor/ patient communication!

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Dr Wallace is a warm, friendly, and professional.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Very qualified & gives trust that that you are being well cared for!

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Probably the most thorough doctor I have been to as an adult. I appreciate his thoroughness with the blood work. I have never had this type of experience before.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Not my primary physician but showed compassion and concern.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

good

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Dr. Wallace is my new primary care MD so I'm not able to give accurate answers yet since I don't really know him but he is a very kind & soft spoken MD.

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. Kevin Wallace. I think he's extremely skilled and has a wonderful bedside manner. It's a shame he's tied to the EMR which takes up so much of our appointment.

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

dr rocks! so knowledgeable! and concerned observant!

SHC Patient, May 2018

I had the impression that he does not really believe that I am in pain and is not trying very hard to help. He spends most of the time looking at test results on a computer screen, then prescribing more tests. I do not question his competence, but the clinic and the processes seem set up to maximize the use and rentability of the test labs more than patient outcome.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr Wallace and I have developed a very good rapport. I'm very happy to have him as my primary care provider.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

compared with most of the internal medicine docs, Dr. Wallace seems interested, caring without being gushy ( which I detest), and seems to have commin sense and a sense if humor.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr. Wallace gave me excellent advice on several issues.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

excellant

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

I really appreciate Dr. Wallace to call for other locations such that I can have ultrasound test at the same day!

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Dr. Wallace was kind and professional.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018
