    About our process

    Dr. Katz is an exceptional care provider. Most drs. Do whatever the appointment Was for. Then IF they have time and often with their hand on the door knob they ask if I have any questions. She asked FIRST made brief notes on them and answered every one. She is exceptional and makes me feel seen.

    Dr. Katz is excellent. The assistant seemed confused about where to send the medication and in fact sent the prescriptions to the incorrect location.

    Dr. Katz was absolutely wonderful. I could not have been more pleased. She paid close attention to my problems and worries. I was especially grateful for her patience when I had a spell of poor hearing and communication became slow. I am very happy that she is my primary care physician.

    Nothing changed. I guess I expected some suggestions for improving my condition but got none.

    Dr. Katz not only listened carefully she complemented me on voicing my preferences about treatment. Maybe not everybody does that. Makes everybody's life easier! She spent a full hour on my problem including some UCSF computer searching in which she included me. She's excellent for this clinic hope she's there for a while. [They recruit such good docs other UCSF depts grab them. ;-) ]
