Dr. Cuan, Is so so compassionate and a caring doctor. Just yesterday on Saturday she spent over 30 minutes talking to me on the phone regarding things that I have been going thru regarding my pain and my diabetes. She gives her patient 110% of her time to her patients. She always the time to listen and returns phone calls right away after hours when calling esp on weekends. I feel that she really really cares for her patients.
I had an abcess that required follow up care so I had several appointments. My doctor was out when I made the first very urgent appointment so I saw Dr Cuan. I LOVED HER!!! She saw me at all my follow ups because it was best to see the same doctor

Dr. Cuan is the most thorough, compassionate, patient physician that has ever cared for me. She treats me like a person - NOT a medical record number or a diagnosis!
Dr.Cuan is so knowledgeable, she is so engaged with you in the appointment she listens to you pays attention and makes the plan that would be most effective for you. I just can't thank her enough for all her hard work.
Excellent comprehensive exam.
Very helpful @ all times.
for now nothing bad all good
Dr. Cuan new to me and my health records. Very good listener and empathetic. Whole patient approach, very doctorly, unlike nurse practitioner the previous day, who was very conservative and "by the book".
Dr. Cuan is very attentive & listen to my concern. She is professional & polite.
Dr. Cuan had not seen me on previous visits, but she evaluated me perfectly and very kindly. She and I worked well together to reach a reasonable working diagnosis and a diagnostic and therapeutic strategy. Her accessibility and skills saved me from an emergency room visit that would have cost thousands of dollars and involved ED physicians who are not always so skilled with non-emergent patients.
I had to ask the nurse to get the doctor to come out and talk to me. When the doctor came out to talk to me I was sitting in a recliner and a few people were also waiting. My wife was waiting for results, with me, and I just felt their was no privacy. I did receive pictures of the test that was taken but no explanation. I felt rushed. My wife was not treated with respect. Not sure I will be keeping my insurance through Stanford after this year is up. I have concerns regarding this whole experience, plus I am an employee of the hospital. Not happy with end result
