The best! I came to UCSF because the lack of care concern and medical attention I was experiencing in my area (SLO) I was very pleased with what I experienced and care I received once I was at UCSF

I am glad I got to talk to the NP as she was very knowledgeable. I didn't feel I had to hurry with her or feel bad about "taking up time."

The doctor's punctuality and professionalism and code of conduct are impeccable. The staff are enthusiastic and diligent. Everyone are sincere and kind. I highly recommend this doctor to everyone.

I was not given any painkillers after my major surgery. I was in SO MUCH PAIN. I messaged several times with the nurses through MyChart to let them know of my pain and every time they told me to take Tylenol. I was later told this was a MISTAKE and I should have been given painkillers upon discharge!! I am VERY ANGRY about this. UCSF should do better.

Dr Varma was very interested in what I had to say listened and questions were used to followup with more info. Her PA [name redacted] was wonderful as well. Both my daughter and I talked about how we had been received and shown so much respect. We went away feeling we had been treated with "warmth and fuzzies."
