Dr. Senter is an excellent provider - she also is friendly and listens closely to overall life concerns that are affected by the orthopedic problem (in my case being able to continue to hike as this is very important to me).

Her recommendations did not really seem to match the severity of the symptoms my daughter is suffering. She suggested that my daughter do much more than she is actually capable of. I am not sure she took the symptoms seriously enough. The other health care providers we saw all seemed to be on the same page about taking things very slowly but she was pushing us to have my daughter jump back in to regular activities. My daughter tried this advice today when going back to school and it failed miserably. She could only tolerate the classroom setting for an hour and a half.

Unparalleled ease in informing me the steps we would take to get to the core of my issue.

Dr. Senter is remarkable. Her interpersonal style is the perfect combination of instilling confidence in her clinical assessment and treatment recommendations - with notable warmth so that I also felt personally cared for as a person.

Dr. Senter is brilliant. She manages to listen be empathetic and look at/write her chart notes at the same time and always offers research or suggestions on aspects of health that may not be within her immediate knowledge and or refer appropriately.

excellent care provider combining high level of technical expertise and excellent "bedside" manner.

Dr. Carlin Senter is the very best orthopedist/sports doctor I've ever had in my sixty-five years on this planet. As both a high school and college athlete and as an active runner and participant in recreational sports I've encountered numerous sports doctors throughout my life and Dr. Senter is THE BEST sports doctor I've ever had. That's why I continue to drive from Marin to the Mission Bay Campus to see her long after she stopped taking appointments at the USCF Sports / Orthopedic Clinic in Marin County. She will be my sports / orthopedic doctor for as long as she remains in practice.

I've been pinging between doctors for back and hip pain since november so i had hoped that I would get a line of treatment but instead have another MRI scheduled and then a follow up appointment.

Dr. Senter is an excellent sports medicine physician both in terms of expertise and her approach to the patient. I'm a physician myself and she never has been threatened by my questions or tried to intimidate me if I disagree with her.

Outstanding care. Very knowledgeable

Aren't these repeat questions that I already answered at the beginning of the survey? Dr. Senter was excellent. She represents the kind of doctor I was hoping to meet: Very good listener held eye contact took my concerns seriously provided a thorough examination clear and concise in her explanations never condescending etc. My hope is that her approach is modeled by the rest of the Ortho doctors residents and students in the department.

No concern about THIS visit. All real concerns dealt with prior visit requiring rescheduling.
