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.
