    I really appreciated the fact that this provider accepted my lived experiences as truths and didn't attempt to dissuade me in one way or the other. She was very easy to talk to and was sympathetic to some of my experiences with previous medical visits.

    Dr. Christy is a wonderful doctor. She's kind personable knowledgeable skilled with procedures and has a really notable good bedside manner. I had an IUD placed and Dr. Christy was so reassuring gentle and communicated throughout the procedure to let me know what was happening it put me at ease and instilled confidence that things were going well. She was so kind and thoughtful In her interactions and performed frequent check-ins during the procedure to assess how I was feeling. I never felt rushed in getting my questions answered and found her responses to be informative and also collaborative. It seemed very patient-centered and trauma-informed. Her patients are very lucky to have her as their doctor! I feel lucky that she is my doctor and that is probably the first time I felt that way while visiting an obgyn office for what it's worth.

    Dr. Christi 10/10 she was amazing. Her explanations were very clear any questions I brought she clarified explained and let me know the differences between the different types of treatment options if needed on the road. She was proactive in offering medications that I would potentially need. Her notes in my chart also very clear and we went through them through the appointment as well. She followed up on a previous referral on my behalf and sent me up to schedule my follow up appointment. She was fantastic.

    I worked in healthcare for 40 years much at a major Eastcoast academic center. Dr. Christy was truly superb.

    Dr Christy has excellent bedside manner
    Nov 04, 2022
    The physician was very compassionate and spend time to listen to my concerns. Although I am of caucasian origin I noticed that African American OB/GYN are more compassionate than their white colleagues. In previous years a white OB/GYN at UCSF made a painful exam was not friendly and rushing through the appointment.
    Oct 30, 2022
    Dr Christy was very warm professional and caring. I felt seen and safe.
    Oct 29, 2022
    Explanation to my questions were not detailed enough to make a decision therefore I had to explicitly communicate what would be helpful; however even then I could see the provider was inexperienced.
    Oct 21, 2022
    Doctor explained everything very well and I appreciated her referring me to a specialist

    I can't tell you how comforting it is to talk to a Black woman doctor! I was able to receive her information without having to filter it i.e. it was so much easier to tell her what was happening with me and I was assured that she was giving me the best treatment.
    Sep 01, 2022
    I was super impressed with how calm the whole team was. Dr Christy was wonderful and took the time to listen to all my questions. The medical assistant who did my intake was the same. Great team!

    The physician was outstanding! Very personable and well conducted appointment - will definitely become their patient
    Jul 15, 2022
    The provider was great. Everything else was very poor. Considering going to a new group.
    Jun 03, 2022
    I wasn't going to ask any questions since I had already spent too long there. She did say I could message her. I am using Google for my questions now though.
    May 27, 2022
    The provider didn't seem to know the answer to my questions
    May 05, 2022
    Dr. Christie was WONDERFUL. She was really genuinely kind listened to me to hear me (not just to pretend that she was listening or "go through the motions" but actively listened) and she didn't rush me or give me a sense I was taking up her time. She was also very empathetic and compassionate. And she didn't dismiss my feelings or concerns. She is a WONDERFUL doctor. Wow.
    May 01, 2022
    I honestly feel like I should be having some in person pre natal appointments; all of my friends did so when Pregnant. Dr Christy didn't seem to think this was too important
    Apr 21, 2022
    There is still a lot of confusion over getting a follow up ultrasound. And not enough explanation of what's going on with my results of the scan
    Apr 06, 2022
    No real sense that she had actual informed knowledge of my situation or care. She kept referring to what other patients had told her to do in my situation. Instantly lost confidence in her for that. Also said it's just part of life and getting older and culturally she couldn't understand why I had questions around my body changing
    Feb 15, 2022
    Dr. Christy was kind and compassionate. She immediately put me at ease and made me feel comfortable to tell my story. UCSF is lucky to have such a wonderful physician.

    I am honored to be invited into my patients' lives to help make them better, and also to be there for their particular moment of trial.
