    Dr. Padgett called me because he had to cancel my appointment because it was for a procedure that he does not perform.

    I am a bit irked that the first thing Dr Padgett recommended for my obesity is a referral to Stanford for bariatric surgery. He seemed to ignore that I told him I had just lost 10 lbs in prior 6 weeks. Such an extreme measure may be necessary in the end but it seemed radical to propose it right away. I am not a statistic.

    Dr Padgett throughly explained my condition and broke it down so I understood just how critical it is. I saw another provider who ordered lab tests and later told me that I was severely anemic but never mentioned how severe or what to look out for but Dr Padgett went and explained the numbers so I understood what the other doctor meant by "severely". He's great! I'm so glad I went to see him!

    Engagement with a physician was really good

    Dr. Padgett is great--and for me a wonder in terms of a doctor who is thorough and proactive who listens and considers my needs as well as my feelings--to then provide me comprehensive as well as personally prescribed care that best benefits me. I've suffered from "White Coat-itis" all my life but something tells me Dr. Padgett manner and attitude towards me the patient will cure me of that too.

    Very comfortable informative first visit with the DoctorHe gave me some insight and advice concerning my health without being condescending nor judgmental .

    My care provider is a very professional person and he listens and responds very nicely explaining everything in detail.

    Dr. Padgett is an excellent provider. He tailors his care to encourage my input. It feels as if we are developing a plan together. He invites me to share my thoughts and concerns after he provides his expertise. He listens and addresses all my concerns. Never before have I left a doctors' office so full of hope. He makes me feel supported and well taken care of. An absolute pleasure to work with and have as my primary care provider.

    Dr Padgett pulled up some online drawings which were very helpful to me

    Dr Padgett provided excellent care.
    Jul 19, 2023
    Very reassuring respectful. Handled multiple concerns / requests in about 20mins. Left feeling heard and understood.
    Jun 27, 2023
    Dr. Padgett seemed very knowledgeable but he didn't introduce himself wasn't wearing a badge seemed barely interested in my concerns and when 30 minutes had elapsed ended the session by saying "I have to move on now" I've never had a physical where the doctor didn't examine me - no listening to breath sounds or heartbeat no hernia check stomach palpitation nothing. Maybe that's just not his style or maybe it's an antiquated expectation on my part. I listed my troubles and he ordered the appropriate tests and I came away feeling like I could have easily done the same thing with an online computer program. Would not recommend.

    Care was much better than what I expected. Dr Padgett was wonderful to me. I also dealt with 2 nurses on the phone who were terrific. Just great service.

    Dr. Padgett clearly explained my test results and treatment plan
    Apr 09, 2023
    Was a routine check up
    Apr 02, 2023
    Dr. Padgett listened to all my concerns and addressed them with quick solutions. I threw a lot at him like spitfire and he set me up in a nice trajectory to attacking my health and holding myself accountable. Dr. Padgett has a can do attitude which is refreshing and I look forward to his support.

    I made him my son's PCP after this visit.
    Mar 31, 2023
    I felt heard taken seriously and not rushed through which is not often the case at doctor visits nowadays unfortunately
    Mar 30, 2023
    The doctor didn't know us yet so we had to explain the background. It was alittle frustrating after going through all the info with the nurse that its basically duplicated. However he did listen and understand and explain how he can help.

    Dr. Padgett is excellent.

    Dr. Tyler is the best; very caring and always provides the best solutions.
    Mar 07, 2023
    Dr was kind and thoughtful but somewhat dismissive of concerns. These concerns may be unfounded but they significantly impacted my anxiety.

    Dr. Padgett was helpful. I saw him because there was no opening with my primary care doctor and I was prepared for yet another failure I'm going to see a doctor at that office to get basic care but then he actually was straightforward and got what needed to be done. I really appreciated his straightforward Efficient plan to get me the care I need. He did not try to lecture me about what was going on with my health without having understood anything about my medical history and instead he actually listened to what I was telling him and we went from there. With the other providers I have to spend a long time trying to educate them that what they're saying is not accurate and then there is no time left in the appointment to get what I need. Dr. Padgett turned out to be efficient and quickly listen to what I said and then came up with the direct solution without having to insert some sort of pseudo friendliness and personality that masking the fact that heDr. Padgett turned out to be efficient and quickly listen to what I said and then came up with the direct solution without having to insert some sort of pseudo friendliness and personality masking the fact that he wasn't actually providing care. He was a breath of fresh air. Actually useful. But I am still the one having to actually manage my own care. Overall this was just a situation where I finally got a basic order that I needed to get from the doctor. He was great but then it turned out he didn't put the orders in correctly for the labs or the iron infusion so it took another month of me on the phone and my chart day after day after day trying to get the orders fixed and entered properly. But he meant to be efficient so that is definitely something. And he respected that I knew about my own health and I didn't have to work to dispel his misinterpretation of what was going on. That is what happens with the other providers.

    Nice good doctor.
    Feb 24, 2023
    He explained everything in detail and easy to understand.
    Feb 21, 2023
    This was my first meeting with my PCP. He was friendly detail oriented and professional.

    Best primary care visit ever. I am a UCSF employee who provides direct patient care. Dr. Padgett is truly one of the best I have seen. He is knowledgeable and listened to my concerns and help me with my goals in my own care. Overall fantastic experience.
    Feb 09, 2023
    First time meeting him. I liked him a lot.
    Feb 09, 2023
    This is the best Doctor I have fro UCSFSpend the time to explain to me everything and he wasn't in a rush and answered all my concerns and recommendations.
    Feb 09, 2023
    Excellent care by everybody.
    Dec 22, 2022
    Dr. Padgett did not try to understand what I was experiencing to provide appropriate next steps to alleviate my pain. He didn't have any empathy for situation and it felt like he just wanted to get me off the call as soon as possible. I do not want to see this provider again.
    Dec 11, 2022
    Dr. Padgett is exceptional. An excellent Fam. Practice pro.

    I had seen Dr. Padgett once at OneMedical for an urgent care appt and was impressed with his care so dolled him to UCSF. I've only had two appts with him but have a feeling he is going to be great in helping me with my complex list of health issues.
    Oct 24, 2022
    Care provider was kind thorough and patient. I also appreciated that he came back in with the nurse as the nurse came back to get a second breath sample from me 15 minutes later. He did not have to do that but in doing so showed his care and concern.
    Sep 26, 2022
    Primary care MD did his job and provided by-the-book potential next steps to my problem.Unfortunately this problem likely requires a more tailored approach based on leveraging the existing data/knowledge about the problem. Given the limited time this provider has and the way primary care is approached at UCSF this is not a suitable place for me to get help with this problem.
    Sep 15, 2022
    I love Dr. Padgett. He was kind and explained things to me like I was an adult who could understand what he was saying. Big fan!
    Sep 10, 2022
    This physician was an excellent and patient listener of both the patient and his family. He was generous with his time and most important considered the patient and family's questions carefully and provided clear medical explanations regarding the patient's needs and treatment to be followed.

    Really nice friendly & informative doctor.

    I would have appreciated more discussion of the use of Plaxlovid on my blood sugar levels and the side effects and tradeoffs of taking or not taking the medication.
    Aug 03, 2022
    Thoughtful questions. We provided options for treatment.
