    I don't feel anything was accomplished in this appointment. It lasted maybe 5 minutes. I am glad I did not have to drive the 2 hours to this appointment. I felt it was a waste of time.

    The only complaint I would have is that when going over the notes the provider made there were a couple of things that were documented slightly wrong or missing completely. Not too much concern. The provider was very knowledgable and I do not feel like I was being dismissed as I have experienced at other locations or other providers that are not tied to UCSF. My provider at UCSF listened to me and my concerns about an upcoming procedure and together we came up with a plan to help ease them.

    I would highly recommend my doctor. She was amazing. Very informative attentive and compassionate. Like I said the team was great when I was in the office. The lack of communication when I was not was extremely frustrating. My gf who picked me up was suppose to have the nurse explain to her how to take care of me after surgery. He said he would tell her at the car but just dropped me off and left. As I had concerns about infections and discharges the responses were slow or non existent.

    This was my first appointment with Dr. Hampson. I was very hesitant for the appointment. She put me at ease and discussed alternatives. She was sensitive to our transportation issues and assisted in getting the tests she was ordering done locally reducing the trips into SF. Very impressed with her as a doctor and a person.
