    He was easily the best doctor I've ever seen for my medical issue had a clear plan for how we can Identify the problem. Past doctors at other practices have dismissed my concerns and basically told me that they couldn't help me I'm really glad I found a second opinion

    Dr. Soe's explanations of my u/s and general issues with thyroid nodules were well organized and clear. He was very careful to go over my medical history and that of my family. He was very reassuring.

    Very good doctor.
    Dec 10, 2022
    I would just say that when receiving news that something is cancerous that dr Soe should take a moment to call that individual personally on the phone and explain the situation to them rather than email the news. It was pretty shocking to receive the news of a second cancer diagnosis via email. Regardless of the "survivability and ease of removal" cancer should be communicated directly to a patient in person or via phone. Additionally a follow up appointment should be on the books after in order to help the patient with this diagnosis.

    Oct 21, 2022
    There will be some coordination with my regular endocrinologist but I'm not sure of the timing or content. Not sure whether I will have additional visits with the UCSF doctor. I got an understanding of my unusual lab results and validation for my own perceptions about my condition which none of the endocrinologists I've seen could understand.
    Oct 13, 2022

    I appreciate that the doctor was familiar with my seizure medicines and their potential to show up as something different in my thyroid tests.
    Nov 07, 2021
    Dr. Soe is highly trained clearly deeply competent and a VERY GOOD communicator. My hesitation to recommend him or UCSF in general to others is entirely because the hospital system seems so poor at handling records or delivering holistic care. I spent 2 hours in an MRI that shut down in the middle. The radiologist didn't even wait to read the whole scan. My endocrinologist says "well come see me in a month or two" regarding symptoms I describe as acute. The hospital denies my blood tests because I have to wait longer for an unknown reason. This is not good patient care as a whole.
    Nov 03, 2021
    This doctor knew every detail of my prior care. I was really happy to know he really did the reach back In time and worked his way up to the present. I transferred to him in order that all my doctors would be in the UCSF system which makes it easier for me. I was hoping I would find him excellent he far exceeded my expectations. He was up on everything "me" and I left with a big weight ooff my shoulders. He was personable quick kind and is turning over the stones to help me.
    Oct 27, 2021
    I was really impressed with the after visit write-up. Dr. Soe very clearly listed my concerns and put emphasis on things that I requested be put in my records.
