Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I had a skin tag that was red and irritated with a scab and had an appointment for a week later so I asked them to put me on the list if there was any cancellations. They called me back within a couple of days and I saw Dr. Monica that same day. Excellent care removing my skin tag and no problems after.

I have changed insurance providers and have had help in insuring I was able to keep this as my primary provider.

10/12/2016
I went for specific concerns about a health condition, and I wanted to get help to determine if I have it or not. I feel like the Dr didn't really take my concerns seriously, and she made it seem like I didn't know what I wanted even though I specifically said "I want to know whats wrong with me cause I'm tired of feeling like this all the time." I went with a list of symptoms I've been experiencing regarding Fibromyalgia in hopes that she could help, but she said there is no way to really diagnose the problems I'm having. And it seemed as if she didn't want to give me a referral to see a specialist. I also requested a refill for a Prescription, usually I get 10 pills. She only gave 3, and said if I wanted more I would have to make a follow-up appointment. I also was told I needed to have my blood work done for them to release the prescription which I never heard of before.

my first appointment with Dr. Monica was good - that is why I re-scheduled with her for a wellness check. what a mistake on my part! thinking back at my appointment last week with her, I should have walked out! I perceived her as aloof and short with me. I came in with four questions about my health - I walked out with no answers or directions. I was disappointed in her response to my questions - cutting me off in mid-sentence and giving me brief response. Dr. Monica seemed so disinterested in me and her role. I was the one who asked for a blood panel as well as what do my symptoms mean. No direct answer from her. I will not be returning to her as my physician. It was truly a disappointing experience.

I had to stand in line a long time to get checked in for my appointment. Standing is very difficult for me. I thought the reception area was understaffed. This was at 11:30 AM, and the check-in staff was probably on lunch break.
100

07/04/2016
When making appt. I asked for a pap exam and health check up, and the receptionist told me that the dr. MIGHT be able to do that. I've seen Dr. Monica before for my exams but was back for a full check up because I had not had one in 4 or 5 years [...]. So when I got to my appt. it was just a "How are you doing" appt. and I did not get my exam. I had to make another appt. with her [...]

I was very happy she recommended I get things looked at more closely. I felt like she cared. I just wish she were not so rushed every time I see her and that I had more time to talk about what was going on with her.

05/29/2016
I really like being able to write using my chart to ask questions which are always answered. I have had some serious health issues over the past year and feel my primary care physician has done a good job keeping on top of my conditions which have been largely the responsibility of specialists.

I found dr Monica years ago and was SO pleased to find her, she spent time and seemed very interested in me and my situation. [...] I would have recommended her to anyone. this last visit I was very upset, she came in 20 min late to a strict 40 min appointment. I had things to go over that had to be rushed through, she didn't ask about my mental health yet changed my medication prescribed by a different dr. I've since had bad emotional side effects from this new medication. I feel she is a different dr than the one I first started seeing years ago. I'm disappointed and sad. [...]

I had asked her to look at my skin all over because I grew up in Southern California and had many sunburns up to age 20. She did not look carefully at my face and did not notice a spot of red rough skin. When I pointed it out to her, she looked at it carefully and said that it could be of concern. I don't like the fact that I had to point this out to her. It makes me wonder if she really did a careful job or if there might be other things she missed. [...]

Was very understanding and compassionate about my issues.
100

04/06/2016
I used the kiosk to check in. Might want to have a way of asking for help with it if it is your first time using it. Had to interrupt clerks to say I needed help with it. Which sort of defeats the purpose. I would definitely use the kiosk next time. Liked it very much once I figured out how to use it. I did get the help I needed to use it.

She has a nice balance of science based medicine with holistic practices (meditation, vitamins, exercise) and is a good role model of self-care. Even though I hadn't made as much progress toward my goals of lifestyle changes as I had hoped, she highlighted the steps I HAD made and was encouraging.
