    I am disappointed that Dr. Grob is leaving and I have to "start over" with another doctor. This means another trip to San Francisco and a delay in scheduling the procedure. It seems this should have been communicated to me and she should not be seeing new patients that she will not be there to treat.

    I am very hesitant to accept new referrals to UCSF providers and I'm happy I relented and saw Dr. Grob.

    My first experience a few months ago with that same provider hadn't been very pleasant. This last appointment was a 360 degree different. The provider was relaxed pleasant confident explained details thoroughly and went through the different options very clearly and efficiently. Great experience

    Related to follow up care: Doctor said the assistant would schedule the surgeries that day to ensure quicker surgery dates At reception told that someone would call in 1-2 days. Have not received a call. "Really " need to get scheduled now!

    My experiences with all care providers have been exemplary. But I just want to repeat that access to the appointment was incredibly well un-accessible.

    She wasn't warm. Didn't introduce herself. Didn't look at us when speaking. Seemed in a hurry.
