    Dr. Christine always makes me feel that he listens carefully to my concerns and addresses them with care and his undivided attention. He never makes me feel rushed or insignificant. Excellent Doctor!

    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

    I have Parkinson's. My legs freeze causing me to plunge forward and fall. Dr. Christine wanted to know when these incidents happened (am pm time). I was lax in this area because I had not written the data down. My fault. But dr. Christine knows they usually occur toward the end of the medicines effective window. I could tell him that much. But I was not concerned with the level of my medicine's strength as much as I was in using the er' version of the carbidopa/levodopa which lasts all night. I know because I can get around In the morning really well. I even take Endecapone which does not seem as effective as the er' version of carbidopa/levodopa. Christine does not seem Interested about my concern for replacing the regular carbidopa/levodopa with the er' version.Thank you

    People at UCSF with whom I have had contact are great.MyChart user experience and management / administrative bureaucracy are awful... Much worse and more frustrating than other health service providers in my experience.

    At the risk of being redundant I want to say that Dr. Christine makes having Parkinson's so much easier and so much better
    May 21, 2021
    I felt like a lot of the information we sent ahead of time was not looked at or addressed.I wish he would have talked more about potential side effects of drugs. I wish he had talked in a little more detail about Parkinson's. We were left stunned and uneasy and ended up having more questions which we sent to the portal.It was a hard diagnosis and you can't think of everything when you hear something like Parkinson's. There were some concerns I wish we had tased about in more detail.
