    My original Dr. That I waited over six months to see passes me off to another Dr I have never met. Even to this day I have yet to met the dr that did my Colonoscopy.

    Best doctor I've seen in a long time. I've been stuck between referrals at Sutter frustrated so I made an appointment at UCSF and was referred to Dr. Singh. She was excellent smart thoughtful and thorough. I have clear next steps. She's great.

    Dr. Singh is an excellent care provider. I have complete trust in her and I really enjoy how comfortable and valued she makes me feel as a patient. I also appreciate the concern of all other physicians working with her.

    Both genetic counselor and physician were excellent and provided me with outstanding care. Having genetic disorder isn't easy and I found the care supportive and helpful. They showed genuine concern for me as person rather than just patient to be treated. Often in healthcare there is only time to treat symptoms but thankfully this center is all about prevention and helping us to stay healthy.

    She was so well prepared and had great insight on my issue including not just good treatment options but also steps I could take to help with a better outcome.

    I spent most of the appointment time with a resident/student. The doctor pretty much just told me what they decided.

    I needed more specific information about my personal follow up to try to alleviate symptoms and I also needed more information about follow-up appointments.

    Only problem was a confusion initially about which medication to prescribe but this was resolved fairly easily.
