This provider, in particular, did not do a physical exam for my main concern, barely listened to or looked at me, and acted as if she couldn't wait to get out of the room/get away from me. She is not very professional, cannot multi-task, and overall not a good doctor (in my opinion).

I had spent months looking for primary care with no results due to insurance, which is usually closes the door. I walked in, explained the situation, the lady behind the desk had me in and set up with an appointment in no time-record time actually. The doctor I was assigned to was able to understand a pretty complex situation and actually lead me to a good specialty call and did the right blood test to find out I was taking some med's I didn't need because I was misdiagnosed at another clinic. Life is better due to some one paying attention, and actually listening and checking thing's out instead of blindly following through with some one else's lead. Thank you guys!

The provider talked rather quickly and spent most of the time talking. She would ask me a question but wouldn't let me finish before telling me what I needed to do. It was my first time with her and she just seemed to go with a script or something, not personable at all. At the end of the appointment, she just abruptly left the room in the middle of what I thought was a conversation and didn't say a word. I had not idea she had left and wasn't coming back. Thankfully, a nurse came in with our after appointment papers and was able to tell us she was finished.

I'm extremely satisfied with the care Dr. Hoang has provided me so far. That being said...I've experienced wait times in excess of 15 minutes, on average about a 1/2 hour, for almost all of the visits I've had. My guess is that the practice I go to is understaffed, which makes it difficult for Dr. Hoang, along with her fellow physicians, keep their appointments in a timely manner.

Provider walked in to the exam room, told me what was probably wrong and the 2 options of how to treat, talked for probably 10 minutes before she even LOOKED at me. She had no questions for me about my issue, seemed as if she knew it all before and already had the answer before she knew the question.
