Lucky to have this provider .

easy to follow the instructions of her assistant on how and when to log on and it worked wonderfully and very clearly

It helped a great deal that I have a pre-existing relationship with the provider. I think a video conference would be more difficult in the absence of an established relationship. Outside the video-conferencing aspect I had a sports-related injury and a doctor who understood what I was doing at the time of injury was extremely helpful. Knowledge of the activity both saves time and establishes trust in the medical advice.

Dr. Carlin Senter is a wonderful physician; a credit to herself and to UCSF!

Dr. Senter was great. I also thought that the visiting resident (maybe from Georgetown?) was wonderful she was clearly knowledgeable and had a great bedside manner. Additionally I appreciated that she waited to do the painful components of the exam until the attending was present to avoid unnecessary discomfort. Further I appreciate that they both were willing to have a discussion about my tailbone injury despite that not being part of this 'official' referral.

Dr. Senter is outstanding. Took complete history of problem and carried out a thorough physical exam. Then explained her diagnosis and treatment plan. Will definitely see her again if additional problems occur.

she is great but it seems there are no answers for my condition - severe joint pain in hips and knees from taking Tamoxifen for breast cancer. Very frustrating

Dr. Senter is the best physician I have ever seen across a wide range of metrics. She has fantastic bedside manner never seems rushed or phased by extensive questions involves the patient in her thought process and conveys such understated competence. This visit was no exception and I am so glad to have her as a resource in SF.

Dr. Senter and her assistant [name redacted] were exceptional. They were extremely attentive and responsive to my health situation and did everything in their power to ensure I received follow-up tests and care as soon as possible. I would recommend them to anyone in a similar situation.

dr Senter was great. I came into the clinic to get the last of a series of injections and was in pain. turns out I couldnt get the injection due to a reaction. she made me feel better about and I feel like she really cared.

I have seen Dr. Senter on several occasions and find her to be very concerned and focussed on my situation. I would recommend her to anyone needing care in her specialty area.

This was a final exam following recovery from an injury. Instructions for contacting the doctor in the event of a future recurrence of the injury were both clear and helpful.

Carlin Senter is always a pleasure to see.

The in office experience was good- the whole staff was respectful of time and knowledgeable. However getting an appointment was quite difficult. I had a bad injury and I wasn't able to to see a doctor for over a month- and the appointment line said that there wasn't any on call appointments. I tried many clinics at UCSF and this was the soonest I was able to see someone.

I was skeptical about even coming back to sports medicine after the way the last provider treated me. Dr. Senter was wonderful. She treated me with respect and allowed me to participate in my own healthcare.
Apr 22, 2019
doctor and her assistant were great...the supporting staff they have need serious help when they cannot even give e the correct fax number
Apr 19, 2019
we can't let "others" know how excellent primary care in this office is. or everyone would ask for Carlin Senter & her team
Apr 04, 2019
Dr Senter is a great doc - she is open to answering questions and discussing medical issues in detail.
Mar 20, 2019
Dr. Senter is one of the best (if not the best) physicians I have seen.
Feb 28, 2019
Said she would refer for PT but did not tell me any details (# or frequency of visits). I only found out after she had left and I was handed the referral paperwork on the way out the door that she was recommending far more frequent visits than I can realistically fit in given other medical treatments that need time / attention. It would have been good to have a chance to ask about options on PT visit frequency and time frame. Also one of my key concerns is how to get past a number of injuries from an accident and become active again. That was not addressed. She did say to schedule another appointment to address another injured body part.
