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. [...]

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.
