    I have been seeing Dr. Christine since 2006 when I was diagnosed for Parkinson's. Through those years Dr. Christine has provided a standard of care unmatched in other clinical settings I have experienced.

    Jun 25, 2023
    Instead of listening he typed during my visit. I think UCSF Drs are just great Dr. Needs to improve his patient personality. He is the least sympathetic of all the Drs I have seen. He knows his stuff he just is rote about it like he is bored after all his years practicing medicine. Unusual in my experience.

    May 26, 2022
    The lack of compassion empathy humanity or basic human kindness was notable and deeply discouraging to the point where I just don't know if I wanna come back and actually quite sad about it because I was under the impression I could trust this doctor and I don't think he really cares about me or for me other than to cover for decisions he has made or others of made which was not what I was looking for at all I just wanted him to say something human. I don't know who this is I don't recognize this particular medical group anymore it's gone downhill so completely just feels like everybody's depressed angry and overworked. I can relate so I'm not judging necessarily but I'm just saying I don't wanna be there
    May 23, 2022
