    She did the best she could. She listened to all my concerns but felt rushed the whole time and just kept saying "Unless you have something else" like she was on a time clock. I made it through my most important list but the conversation did not seem dynamic.

    I wish that safe and effective weight loss meds were brought up by the provider at our last visit a year ago instead of when I discovered them and asked.
    Jan 10, 2023
    At least she went medical school and can write a prescriptionnothing to write home about .
    Jan 09, 2023
    Since I thought this was a post-op visit I was a bit surprised that she never looked at my abdomen.

    Regarding instructions & followup care: My care provider referred me for additional specialized services but was unclear on how I should go about obtaining/contacting those services and whether they would be covered by my insurance. In my experience with other practices there has been other support staff in the office (not necessarily the MD) who was more knowledgeable or at least helped with the referral process. I don't want to give my primary care provider a low rating when this is not necessarily her responsibility but I feel like I'm on my own to figure out how to obtain and schedule followup care referral. Also I haven't been able to access an "After Visit Summary" in hopes the information would be there.

    Dr. Vincent listens to my concerns knowledgeable professional
    Nov 28, 2022
    I'm not sure the Doctor is pursuing a diagnosis of my illness. Possibly she is only considering the symptoms and not the underlying cause. There wasn't any discussion of a proposed treatment or follow up care. She did request a referral and e-consult however.I asked about some of my test results and I thought the doctor's reply was a little vague.
    Nov 19, 2022
    Provider is always running late rushes through the appt does not listen to request properly and provides bad medical advice.
    Nov 16, 2022
    Dr Vincent addressed all of my concerns in a very friendly and informative manner.
    Nov 03, 2022
    Dr Vincent always makes me feel like she is never in a rush and I'm her only patient. Its a wonderful trait being so present
    Oct 27, 2022
    This was a first appointment with the provider. I needed a lot of time due to a complex medical history and current mental health crisis in my family. Dr. Vincent did not have enough time for all I presented because of her schedule In addition to what I needed but she was so effective at combining listening and progression through the appointment. She was professional and highly caring. She made appropriate referrals to specialists answering my questions patiently and really being present for me at a time of great need. She respected my competence and ability to partner in my own care. She also offered another appointment for follow-up which I so appreciated. I am so glad to say that I feel that she will be a very good fit for me.
    Oct 27, 2022
    She's great. Pt centered care and collaborative approach makes up for the long wait time to schedule an initial appt. Very responsive and great trauma informed care! Thank you.
    Oct 25, 2022
    Dr. Vincent gave me excellent care. She's absolutely the best. She gave me the care that I was looking for in a Primary Care Doctor.
    Oct 25, 2022
    Dr. Vincent was excellent
    Oct 22, 2022
    Dr was very concerned and provided needed information.
    Oct 19, 2022
    I was surprised to see that Dr Vincent consulted with ID about my Lyme treatment. IN a response that took the consult under six minutes it was deemed my current treatment not valid per UCSF. I wonder what alternative treatments DSA has to offer for persistent Lyme??? And why my doctor could not pursue her own research on my current treatment? I'm sure in six minutes I could not find studies to back up their proposed treatments. I felt dismissed. I did not ask Dr Vincent to treat my Lyme disease precisely for this reason. 300000 persistent post treatment Lyme patients( or more) are waiting for decent research on this persistor bacteria.All ID does is deny its existence.
    Oct 05, 2022
    Dr. Vincent is very caring and takes the time to listen.

    We like dr vincent
    Sep 21, 2022
    Dr Jyotsna Vincent treated me like I was crazy for asking her simple questions about what more could be done to get to the root of the problem that I was severely suffering from and she also treated me with the attitude that I was wasting her time for even seeing her that day. Extremely rude and unprofessional to treat your patient this way when other medical professionals agree that my concerns should be taken seriously. I am planning to switch doctors because this was not the first time she has provided a poor experience but this time it has directly left me in pain and without a doctor that takes me seriously. I strongly believe that I would have received better care if I were a different gender race and age.
    Sep 15, 2022
    I spent 7 months trying to find a doctor. I genuinely cried after my first visit with Dr. Vincent because I was so grateful to be in her care.
    Aug 31, 2022
    What we discussed was not usual. Dr Vincent Suggested a thoughtful experienced informed and professional approach to my problem which can completely make sense sense and to which I am grateful.
    Aug 28, 2022
    Dr. Vincent is friendly she listened to my concerns knowledgeable and very professional. I feel fortunate to have a caring & compassionate physician like Dr. Vincent.
    Aug 21, 2022
    Would look down and struggled to make eye contact. Sometimes felt like she wasn't listening and was multi tasking
    Aug 20, 2022
    Very poor communication between the care team and myself this visit. I was told I needed to make an appt for vaccines. Then the nurse came in to administer them. No one told me that I would have to return for a second dose. I had to look it up myself and then email the office to confirm. A referral to a specialist was made without telling me. Now I have to get a hard copy of the order so I can choose a closer specialty office. Had I known about the referral I would have asked for the hard copy before I left the PCP office.
    Aug 14, 2022
    Good collaboration between my primary doctor and the medical student I saw initially
    Aug 04, 2022
    Only provider of the 6 or 7 I have now that even discussed my weight and set a reasonable goal. Was not condicendingg
    Aug 02, 2022
    Yes I will refer it to friends abd relatuve.
    Jul 28, 2022
    She is the very first dr I've had that has NOT profiled me.. She has been my new dr for only 3 months almost 4 and she has me with the specialist to take care of my issues Causing me havoc. I have gotten further with my health here then I have in 20 years with my previous dr. I'm thankful for the refferals. Thankful I am being taken seriously when it comes to my health condtions. I have a lot of health issues I need handled and she's doing her best with information she has. Thank you.
    Jul 17, 2022
    Thorough review of medications. Thorough explanations of her thinking on how to proceed with various issues.
    Jul 17, 2022
    Dr always shows interest and concern. She never seems rushed and gives me as much time as needed for my visit.
    Jul 16, 2022
    Just hasn't been an overall good experience and I have gone to another entity for service
    Jul 08, 2022
    After waiting for the doctor for 1.5 hrs she only spent 5 mins with me. Then my xray was ordered incorrectly. I complained about my ribs but the xray order was for neck spine and hip. I wasted time and gas again going to clinic because they didn't have the right orders in the system.
    May 16, 2022
    At first I was scared and wasn't sure if my health issues would get resolved and treated so I can remove pain meds. She showed me she really does want to get me the correct treatments so I remove medications. She has reffered me where I need to go to be able get to the right place for treatments or surgery. I know I'll be able to meet my goals with her getting me the help and treatments to be free from these medications. I know it takes time. Sometimes I wish I could have treaments and surgery right now but unfortantly it done work that way. She is doing her best to get me that what's needed.
    Apr 20, 2022
    She still don't have my medical files so it's making it difficult for her to do her job. She can only do so much with the info she has. I am doing everything in my power to get the files to her and I sent mri report and mri images. I'll have the rest here soon in the mail. I hope before my next appt she will have everything. She is a very good dr. She is easy to talk to.
    Apr 10, 2022
    Immediately scheduled
    Apr 05, 2022
    She is a very good dr all the staff is very professional and sweet. It is nice to have this dr listen like she does and actually do something to help resolve this issue. I feel safe now and taken seriously. She knows what's best for me and don't ask me to do research. She does it the correct way. I'm happy to finely have a good team of drs to get me back to good health and do everything they can to make my goal happen by eventually removing pain med since Theres so many other safer options for pain.She is a very smart and sincere women as all staff is. It is amazing of how much was accomplished for me being my first time appt. On my first visit She did blood work and referrals went out. This is the first time I have ever had a dr move this fast to get the medical care I need. She gave me my pain med with the intent to keep lower it and added a narcan. I Never heard of narcan until now. I have always been Scared of this pain med so having that makes me feel safe and secure. And I Have decided to no longer take any medication that was given to me by my old dr and let her decide whats best for me. I'm now only taking what she prescribes me. I'm completely amazed by how much she cares for her patients. Thank you for taking me seriously. I know I'll get my health back on track and be off this pain med soon. Thank you so much for listening and willing to help me reach that important goal. And thank you to the staff for being extremely professional. Thank you for hearing me out without judgment. I know I will finely get a permanent resolution for my health.
    Mar 29, 2022
    Everything was fine except the follow-up communication regarding my referral.
    Mar 29, 2022
    I need to ask doctor for more specific explanations of what she thinks of medications. For example Why she thinks zolpidem is bad for me.
    Mar 19, 2022
    As far as recommending it's really not something I do.
    Mar 11, 2022
    My appointment was my first time to meet Dr. Vincent and it was a pleasure!
    Jan 06, 2022
    Practitioner and staff were all very good but if you're in a hurry to make an appointment there can be long wait times which is the only down side. I had to make an appointment almost 3 months in advance.
    Dec 04, 2021
    I had a pre- appointment call with a person and no one informed me that was going to happen half an hour before my scheduled time. Also the person who called me needs to know how to pronounce medication names etc. It was stressful that she obviously had no training for those things. It leaves a bad impression on a patient. She was extremely nice but lacked any knowledge so I felt stressed going into this new doctor/patient relationship. It was off putting. She could not pronounce my meds and when she asked about depression etc. It was odd because It was obvious she had little to no medical training. Not her fault but this could be helped with training.
    Nov 21, 2021
    My doctor wanted to put me on a medication to prevent headaches. However the medication she ordered can cause other problems for me which are in my chart. I feel she should have known about this before ordering the medication.
    Nov 16, 2021
    Made me feel respected and dignified by including me
    Nov 07, 2021
    Supportive and caring
    Nov 02, 2021
    I am very pleased with my care provider!
    Oct 26, 2021
    It felt a bit rushed but the doctor made sure to explain everything that related to what I asked about in a clear concise manner that made it easy to understand what the probable cause is and what I should do or not do
    Oct 25, 2021
    Dr. Vincent was lovely. She was kind and made me feel at ease to ask questions now and in the future. She is just what I was looking/hoping for in a new PCP.
    Oct 20, 2021
    Will not be rescheduling to see this provider
    Oct 07, 2021
    Doctor was unconcerned unworried. It was difficult to get her to order a urine exam to check if I had a urine infection. She kept saying that urine infections clear on their own. I will be changing my doctor as soon as possible
    Sep 27, 2021
    My doctor is very nice and very knowledgeable. She seems to really care about my extracurricular activities like martial arts. She is very accommodating too.
    Sep 19, 2021
    She was likely frustrated with me and my technical issues.
    Sep 13, 2021
    Dr. Vincent was excellent. She was professional friendly and listened to my concerns and acted quickly on my problem which was impressive.
    Jul 02, 2021
    Very knowledgeable and caring. My only slight niggle is that I didn't hear back for two weeks about a labs result that alarmed me and when I requested a repeat lab I did not know she had taken care of it for me until I called the clinic three days later.

    Very impressed with the provider...just the best
    Apr 29, 2021
    Could not recommend any higher.
    Apr 28, 2021
    while the provider seemed knowledgeable - I felt no warmth at all - I am used to having some friendliness physician's manner - I am easy to engage so it is hard to understand why that is missing.
    Apr 27, 2021
    first time to meet this primary care physician & I think she was concerned with my healt when ahead & requested for my records from my previous primary physician
    Please check with your health insurance plan regarding coverage for this type of care. Not all providers at UCSF are covered by every insurance plan.
