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.

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.

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.
