I am very satisfied with my visit. Doctor Sanchez was great, so I was the staff. I felt heard when I was telling him about what was going on and we really talked about what was happening and the options Ihad. He took his time to make sure I understood the diagnosis and exams options, etc.. I made lots of question and patiently, he answered all of them!

Dr Estiu Sanchez is the best doctor I have ever had the privilege of knowing. He is extremely polite, and listens attentively to everything, responding in a very intelligent way that addresses all concerns with a range of effective solutions,and importantly, without any bias, agenda or ignorance. It is clearly apparent that he has a lot of experience, and his wisdom is compounded with a genuine desire to help in the best way possible, keeping an open mind. Moreover, his support outside of the office, with respect to check-ins, and even issues at the pharmacy, is unparalleled. Dr Estiu Sanchez deals with issues in a timely manner, and provides a level of care that is echelons above what I expect from any healthcare system in the world. Thank you for such an exemplary level of service, and I look forward to our continuing relationship as my primary doctor.

He listens to you and make sure to answer all of your questions. If he was located in San Bruno where I live, would have chosen as my Primary Doctor.

Excellent care received today !! . My experience with INSTANT URGENT CARE in Palo Alto was beyond my belief. Wait time in the waiting room less that 10 mins and less than 5 in the exam room. I had nothing butpositive experience with Dr. HERBERT ESTIU SANCHEZ . Dr Estiu consistently answered all my questions, his demeanor and bed-side manner was calm, attentive, and thorough. I can not conclude this review without mentioning Dr Estiu's very friendly and corteous receptionist / staff . I appreciated the cleanliness of this brand new facility ( less than two months) with impecable waiting and examination rooms. If you are looking for an excellent urgent/family medicine care , this is your place !!! A.E PaloAlto, CA
