    Jan 13, 2023
    She has to take care too many patients.
    Jan 06, 2023
    I will always recommend this provider to others
    Dec 30, 2022
    Dr. Han did a great job of describing the problem and possible solutions. Expressed confidence she could solve the problem.

    Dr. Han is a busy doctor.
    Oct 22, 2022
    I will bring a book next time! The providers and staff were wonderful. Just a lot of wait time
    Oct 19, 2022
    I would recommend Dr. Han as a care provider but if patients are routinely kept waiting more than two hours as I was I would say go somewhere else.
    Oct 17, 2022
    Very professional and caring team
    Oct 11, 2022
    Dr. Han is an outstanding physician and a very compassionate doctor. She is a good listener and together we developed a strategy for my next steps.
    Oct 07, 2022
    Dr. Han is so wonderful. She treats so many patients and extends such friendliness and patience to her patients. She is very clear and detailed w/ discussing and explaining my condition. I feel very comfortable w/her. She apologies for wait times that are out flog her control and that is so thoughtful.
    Oct 02, 2022
    The fellow doctor and Dr Han were very knowledgeable. Great experience!
    Oct 02, 2022
    Location is a challenge.
    Sep 27, 2022
    Dr. Han is so backed up with patients that the visits always feel rushed.
    Sep 25, 2022
    I was able to get my questions answered promptly and clearly via mychart messages.
    Sep 11, 2022
    Dr Han is excellent and professional.
    Sep 06, 2022
    All good.
    Sep 05, 2022
    I was kept informed at all times and truly listened to.
    Aug 28, 2022
    Skill is not the issue. She is unsure of her patient's education/understanding level so repeats repeats repeats.
    Aug 26, 2022
    Dr Han is great. UCSF needs to value its great docs and not overload them. They are a precious resource.
    Aug 19, 2022
    Dr han is excellent
    Aug 18, 2022
    Dr. Han is very good at describing test results and the overall condition.
    Aug 12, 2022
    Fix appointment scheduling.

    Excellent care
    Aug 09, 2022
    Instilled confidence and was compassionate.
    Aug 08, 2022
    Dr. Ying Han!!! She's the best. Very attentive very informative great bedside manner.'
    Aug 07, 2022
    Dr Han is great. I just wish she wasn't over booked.
    Aug 07, 2022
    I have great trust in Dr. Han to care for me in regards to my eye conditions. She listens to my concerns and responses accordingly. This is why I have continued to come back to UCSF for my care since I moved out of state 10 years ago!!!
    Aug 05, 2022
    Very long wait but Dr Han is worth it.
    Aug 05, 2022
    Once I met with Dr.Han she was excellent! The 2.5 hour wait time was very disappointing
    Jul 25, 2022
    Dr. Always seems rushed not just this visit but previous ones too
    Jul 20, 2022
    Dr Han is an exceptional doctor
    Jul 18, 2022
    The doctor is over scheduled and required to see too many patients. The result is a lower level of care for the patient certainly not what the University stand for. You must higher more physicians and stop focusing on your revenue. UC is supposed to be a teaching hospital not a cash cow.
    Jul 16, 2022
    Only she looks tired because patients are waiting for her. The good doctor always concerns about her patients. This is patient care it can't treat like buying stuffs or selling stuffs. I have been working in the intensive care unit for 33 years. All UCSF's doctors are very good & taking car of patients very well. They listen patients concern & treat patient as patient. Hope the system go back as before.

    Will recommend care provider with the caveat that extreme wait times are entrenched
    Jun 23, 2022
    Again I sent a message in April of 2022. And I never heard back. She told me that someone would reach out to me about an appointment and they never did. She said she would send a letter for me and I have no idea if that happened.

    Apr 02, 2022
    Dr. Han and her team are the BEST !!!
    Mar 22, 2022
    Having very good experience
    Mar 10, 2022
    The care provider's Fellow was superb and added tremendous value to the care provider (Dr. Han) and to me.
    Feb 11, 2022
    I saw a least 3 providers and all were friendly polite and courteous
    Feb 08, 2022
    Actually it was an entire team of people--an assistant a resident and Dr. Han--who worked with me. Each one was very good. As I learned more about my condition during the visit I could ask for further clarification and information. Excellent.
    Jan 28, 2022
    No follow up care discussed. Excellent explanation of planned procedure.
    Jan 28, 2022
    As I live an hour and a half away from office reduces chance to refer.
    Jan 26, 2022
    Excellent doctor!!!
    Dec 31, 2021
    When the care provider runs over the staff have already left for the day and some follow up falls through the cracks
    Dec 11, 2021
    Information is also entered in the My Chart very good resource
    Dec 08, 2021
    UCSF and patients is very fortunate to have Dr. Han.
    Dec 05, 2021
    Very good
    Dec 04, 2021
    I am very fortunate to have Dr. Han as my doctor. She cares and gave me confidence.
    Oct 01, 2021
    Dr. Han is very a competent gifted surgeon and very personable in the care she is providing to me.
    Sep 21, 2021
    Dr. Han answered all of my questions and discussed my concerns due to a rare eye condition that I also have. I left feeling like she is the best doctor to handle my situation.
    Sep 06, 2021
    This was my first appt with Dr. Han and I plan on returning.
    Aug 20, 2021
    This clinic is like a family practice. All are kind and interested in the patient and no question or issue is unanswered and that goes from entering check in to the final surgery or appt
    Jul 22, 2021
    Provider some distance away and not convenient for most folks near where I Live
    Jul 21, 2021
    Waited over 90 minutes for an appointment that lasted four minutes.
    Jul 17, 2021
    She was trying to catch up reading the computer during the visit. I'm sure she is excellent on the right day this wasn't a great day.
    Jul 08, 2021
    Dr. Han showed great concern for me.
    Jul 03, 2021
    Very disappointed in Dr. Hans medical notes/documentation after the visit. The visit was a second opinion/consult. In my experience is the physician documentation should include succinct history including patient concerns. There should be a proper documentation of exam assessment and recommendation. Her notes were vague non-specific and did not consistent with a professional consultation.
    Jul 02, 2021
    Patients will need to be educated on their own diagnosis so that the provider explanation makes sense.
    Jun 05, 2021
    can't complain.
    Jun 04, 2021
    I had to wait for almost 2 hours before I saw the provider for barely 3-5 mins.
    May 15, 2021
    Dr. Han is a terrific physician and I trust her with my care. I would say she could explain what I could expect post op and from the drugs she prescribes me better but overall she's fantastic and goes the extra mile.
    Apr 23, 2021
    very clear instructions. I was able to reach by phone to clarify issues
    Apr 09, 2021
    always feel like the doctor is rushed - talks fast and cuts the appointment short
