    Dr. Lamar is excellent and the staff is also very good. I think you may need more people to handle the work load.

    I dive 3.5 hours (each way) to see Dr. Lamar. She is so worth the drive. She is not only an excellent physician she is also an amazing listener and supports me emotionally (she recognizes the emotional impact my condition causes me and helps me stay positive). I feel very lucky to have her as my specialist.

    Dr. Lamar is always thorough collaborative and thoughtful in her approach. Her style is warm and is she always takes as much time as needed to address all of my concerns and questions explaining her reasoning from an evidence-based perspective (or being transparent when the evidence is lacking). I fully trust her judgment and feel so well cared for by her.
    May 11, 2023
    I can't say enough good things. I have referred the doctor to others!
    May 07, 2023
    I tried to get care in my home state but was not having luck so I decided to go ahead with Dr. Lamar and wait out the schedule. She provided for me in the past and I was so impressed with her then and she did not disappoint this time around I knew she would be prepared and that she thinks outside the box and she is conscientious of her patients pain time and trying to do the best for the situation. She spent the time and pulled off where 3 other providers did not succeed. I think had I just waited out the scheduling in the first place I would not have had to go to the other 2 providers who were not successful.

    I was really impressed with Dr. Lamar and wish that she was my primary provider. She was caring and very attentive. It was clear that she was very knowledgable and was able to answer all of my questions and provide research-guided recommendations. She was also incredibly knowledgable regarding the UCSF scheduling system and was able to catch the incorrect scheduling of my induction and fix it.

    Dr. Lamar is truly phenomenal. I have never had a care provider who is as kind attentive and knowledgeable as Dr. Lamar. She really makes you feel seen and listened to as a patient and makes the patient feel involved in their healthcare decisions. I feel beyond lucky to have her as my OBGYN.

    Robyn is truly the best provider ever. She is exceptionally kind thoughtful patient and caring. She critically evaluates the literature to provide a nuanced up-to-date evidence-based recommendation that doesn't fall into the trap of over-generalizing which so many providers can do. She is supportive and non-judgmental. I recommend her to all my friends/family/patients (just hoping that she still has capacity to see me!) She is among the very best UCSF Health has to offer.
