Dr. Small is the most competent physician I have encountered. There is no other physician I would trust my condition with more than Dr. Small!

Dr. Small has become one of the most important people in my life. His attentiveness and caring attitude have served as a very powerful beacon on my journey with prostate cancer. As a physician myself playing the role of a patient is not always easy but he has navigated the process so skillfully. I can't possibly express enough gratitude for him.

Dr. Small is great. Just alittle confused still about referral process (but that is on my end whether I should just wait until all results are sent for referral to call me or I should call them).

It was somewhat challenging for me to get into the waiting room electronicallyThat should be more simplified for elderly patients

During the past three years of my journey with prostate cancer I have had consultations with numerous oncologists. He is by far the best communicator of technical information; so clear and coherent. He is also compassionate and supportive. I so trust his judgment and medical expertise and am so appreciative of his availability for periodic consults concerning my oncology care at DFCI.

No way for my MD to access my medical records on-line at Stanford Hospital. This is a MAJOR issue you need to solve for all your local patients how are treated at Stanford as well.

When I joined the meeting I saw my image briefly and then my provider's image in thumbnail size briefly. I could not hear him and could not find any buttons on the screen to press for audio or video. He could hear me. While searching for some way to get audio I lost the video and neither of us could see the other. Again no buttons to use to activate audio or video. At some point I saw two lines near the top of the screen. One said audio muted and the other said Video stopped. I got audio back by pressing the audio line but pressing Video stopped line did not toggle the video back on. At the very top of the screen there was a red banner reading Driver Mode which I have never turned on and it wouldn't work in my car anyway. (I was in my car at the hospital parking lot at the time). I am using a Pixel 4 phone with Android 10. I think UCSF needs to check with Google and Zoom to review how this could have happened. I followed the instructions which when I tested my phone using the UCSF test procedure worked as described. But when I did the same thing to connect with my provider the screen with buttons for audio and video did not appear and what I described above happened. I will also mention that the text instructions and video instructions UCSF provides do not provide exactly the same steps. Those setting the different types of instruction should make sure they are the same because when they are not a new user doesn't know why and can be confused.

Dr. Small has me wait to ask my questions and by the time it's my turn he's already answered 95% of them. He anticipates almost everything I think of every time. He's the best.

Following our meeting I sent this message to Dr. Small: "In a turbulent sea of doubt and worry yours is a calm voice of knowledge and confidence that may be curative in itself. Many many thanks for what you are doing for me."

Dr Small is an exemplary physician! He spent much more time with me than expected. He was very comprehensive in his explanations and answered all of my questions in a patient and comprehensive manner

Dr. Eric Small is one of if not the finest physician with whom I've ever visited. He is exceptionally generous with his time; is remarkably empathetic; offers explanations for complex issues and decisions that are extremely clarifying and uncommonly understandable; is open to any and all questions; goes over key health issues in the way a good teacher does with repetition and with confirmation of understanding; and demonstrates a commanding knowledge of his domain with clear understanding of the challenges that his patients are experiencing in trying to make sense out of their health issues. In my lengthy contest with cancer I've encountered literally countless doctors. Dr. Eric Small stands above the crowd for his extraordinary command of his specialty his compassion and his communication skills. I'm confident that my life will be better and longer for the fact that I am a patient of Dr. Small.
