Dr. Chien is very impressive caring and patient with my comments. I could see that she is truly an expert in her field based on her knowledge of the different medical studies. She took time to understand my personality and medical history before discussing the medical concern.

Dr. Chien is exceptional. She is very thorough thoughtful friendly and empathetic data driven and extremely responsive. I am particularly blown away about how brought into the decision making process I am how decisions are made with a tumor board and how thoughtful UCSF is ensuring the best care is provided for my cancer. Dr. Chien calls and texts me at all hours and it's truly above and beyond care. I am very grateful for her care and would highly recommend her to everyone I know.

This was one of the best experiences I have ever had with a medical provider anywhere in an appointment or video consult setting! I don't live in SF. I was diagnosed with cancer in [date redacted] and since then the first time I have felt like I had enough time to talk to oncologists was with Dr Chien and Dr [name redacted]y. Amazing experience for which I and my entire family are eternally grateful.

Dr Chien is absolutely wonderful. She is warm and friendly and reassuring. Her knowledge compassion professionalism are the best. I was very fortunate to have her as my medical team while dealing with breast cancer. She is a kind of doctor who's very willing to listen to all of your concerns consider all of your information discuss different options and explain it very clearly. Her staff are very good too everyone in the office has always been friendly and supportive.

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 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
