    Dr Kolli is great. The UCSF/MyChart envelope surrounding him is full of well-intentioned people but is nonetheless awful. The envelope reflects the worst parts of our healthcare system

    TYPICAL UCSF as far as I have experienced in 2022 and as far as I have heard: docs are great but nuts n' bolts around them is not.
