I have had a rollercoaster of care this office was one of my best. I felt very heard and cared for. I believe the doctor has a great plan to help me.

I didn't feel like she listened to my concerns seemed to be in a hurry.

Dr. Ito was amazing and everything I hoped for in seeing a provider for the first time for what's a very sensitive issue.

I've had a much better experience with this same surgery with another doctor 4 years ago. I didn't feel much empathy from my recent doctor. I wasn't aware that removing your ovary and fallopian tube was even a risk. I found out about this from my husband the day after my surgery. Maybe my dr told me about it after my surgery but I was too drugged up. I knew I was getting a blood transfusion from losing too much blood but I thought it was from the fibroids not from removing my ovary and fallopian tube.

Dr. Ito is wonderful! I felt listened to and she offered stages of treatment that started with very low Intervention solutions which I really appreciated. When she did something that could be painful she warned me and always checked in on how I was. She's awesome!

When my mri results were ready 5 weeks ago and I was twice told they weren't to only have the exact same report I read 5 weeks ago read to me in this appointment I see no point to the appointment. The doctor also didn't let me finish my statements and responded with things that didn't help the question I was trying to ask. I felt gaslit by this doctor since they couldn't remember and didn't review our previous appointment and ultrasound results. The doctor obviously hadn't looked at the ultrasound or mri or my records before meeting with me.

I got the impression the doctor was/is competent but she was so rushed she barely interacted with me

When we fill out questionnaires asking specifics about history and symptoms and then we also confirm similar with a hospital rep prior to the consult its time consuming and inefficient for the provider to then go through the same list. It eats up a lot of time that could be used focusing on treatment and management. I have an extensive history that sucks up a lot of consult time. I think for a complex case like mine an hour is more appropriate or 45 min vs 30 min and if only 30 min it needs to be managed efficiently. My provider provided me with a second appointment the following day which I very much appreciated however we still didn't have enough time to discuss hormone management adequately. She said she had to go and I still had pertinent questions on things we hadn't even touched on. Not every case is the same and not every patient just listens. Educated patients are going to ask questions that take up time. It would be good if providers veered off the computerized list of questions they are tasked with filling out during the consult and perhaps just listened and discussed. I get it they see a lot of patients each day too many in my opinion which waters down care for a VERY complex painful disease. Pain management is something else that wasnt even discussed. Thats crazy. This is an excruciating disease.

Dr. Ito is amazing. She's very patient and attentive to details. I know that she really cares about me. Imagine a doctor apologizing for not responding to your message because she was in the OR until late at night everyday. That's not something that she needed to apologize about! Despite how busy she is she still managed to squeeze me into her schedule. I really appreciate how much she does for me. I hope she takes care of herself and UCSF takes care of their staff to prevent them from burning out. I don't want to lose a great doctor like her.

Asked to switch doctors after the visit but found out she is the surgical specialist and I am in need of surgery. Looking into other hospitals/programs.

Dr. Ito was thorough and explained everything to me. I felt so comfortable with her and trusted her immediately. I felt that she and her staff genuinely cared for me. She even reminded me that I can always reach her via MyChart. She made sure our relationship is still there outside of the clinic room & it made me feel relieved to know that she cared for me.
As no two patients are the same, I strongly believe in individualized, thorough women's health care, which I aim to provide to the best of my ability.
