    I think Dr. Ueda is outstanding! I would highly recommend her to anyone and I am very grateful for having her look after me. She is extremely knowledgeable and gives detailed but easy to understand information. I learned a lot from listening to her describe my medical issues and solutions.

    I am concerned about having to wait two weeks for the tumor board to discuss my case. I am surprised the tumor board does not meet weekly or biweekly to support the growing number of patients at UCSF.

    Dr. Ueda is very business-like and professional. When facing a life-threatening cancer diagnosis this is my preference a professional is taking care of me. I would like to see her just a little warmer in her interactions with me but perhaps that is not her personality.
    Jan 12, 2022
    Dr Ueda went above and beyond for me-negotiating with my obstinate insurance company getting me the surgery I needed when the insurance company said it wasn't necessary.
    Nov 19, 2021
    The Dr went over all my medical history to be clear and reiterated several times the direction we'd head in and how we'd proceed with the delays from my insurance company.
    Nov 18, 2021
    I would've liked to had more answers about what to expect and how to take care of myself after leaving the hospital for this kind of surgery. I was told I would learn more about this after surgery so maybe that is normal. But I'm trying to prepare so a little more information would've been helpful

    The Dr. Gave me the bad pathology results of a sarcoma she removed surgically. She is honest and direct. No sugar coating. After this initial result she called me a few days later on the weekend to tell me an updated mutation that pathology discovered that would change the course of my treatment.
    Sep 21, 2021
    The follow-up notes and letters posted to mychart were very clear detailed and helpful.
    Aug 11, 2021
    Dr. Ueda is very thorough with her appointments. We touched on all concerns both hers and mine. I am going through the motions to follow up on her recommendations.

    Dr. UEDA and her assistant were outstanding
    Jul 14, 2021
    Dr. Ueda is amazing. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of her specialty. Her bedside manner is the perfect mix of caring and informative. I wish that she could be my PCP.

    Dr. Ueda was wonderful!

    Dr. Ueda talks fast ans the mask makes it very difficult for hard of hearing people to understand especially when we have a mask on too.
    Jun 18, 2021
    very efficient & direct
    Jun 17, 2021
    my pathology report was not available for me until after the appointment. I have many more questions I did not get answered. it's too bad I did not have a copy to read over before the appointment or during the appointment
    May 21, 2021
    It's not fair to the doctor to have to deliver bad news and console in the same visit.
    May 04, 2021
    Excellent care and treatment.
    Please check with your health insurance plan regarding coverage for this type of care. Not all providers at UCSF are covered by every insurance plan.
