My life is in her capable hands.

Provider's extreme tardiness and bedside manner were negative.

The last 4 times although my understanding was that the appointments are with this doctor I have been seen by the nurse practitioner instead due to various reasons. I know I may insist on seeing the doctor but understand she is very busy. However it would be more reassuring to be seen more often by the doctor.I do find the 2 nurse practitioners I have seen very professional and caring.

Amy Jo Chien is a terrific doctor. When I get her full attention I am extremely satisfied. But it is clear to me that she is very busy and getting her full attention is not always easy. She is often distracted when we begin our appointments (after an extensive wait) she is often catching up on my status in the office. She looks at the computer more than she looks at me. She often consults the record for details that if she would just ask me I could provide. I have Stage 4 breast cancer. I would like to be included in and very fully informed about the decisions regarding my care. I do my homework so Dr. Chien doesn't have to explain everything. While she definitely asks the questions I bring to my visits I still don't always feel heard when are visits are complete. My sense is she's moving very fast and may not really have the time to drop-in to these types of conerversations. This is likely much less about her than the system she's in. She needs more time for her patients - especially those who are very ill.

Dr. Chien gave me the time I needed to answer my questions and concerns. She is very compassionate and professional took excellent care of me. She ended the appointment with a hug that meant a lot to me.

Dr. Chien was my oncologist. I generally have seen her once per year since my medications were finalized. This was my final visit to the Breast Clinic. (Surgery 6 years ago and now I have officially been "released" from care.)

some of the follow up instructions could have been written down as they are now fading in my memory

she was impersonal she didn't even look at my records based on what she was saying she spent any time with me and no care or concern from her

Dr. Amy Jo Chien to me is my special angel she has been my partner in this journey the entire time since I was referred to the oncology department. I can not say enough about the exceptional compassion expertise professionalism and concern I have been shown.

I didn't actually see the provider with whom I had the appointment but that was OK. The FNP took care of everything and answered the questions I came with. I left satisfied.
