Dr. Ling has been my family doctor for 4 years. When getting sick, I'm always able to see her on the same day. Dr. Ling is very experienced, quick and direct to point, and I have full trust in her.

I don’t understand why the doctor was in a hurry to see me off. I didn’t even know that the appointment was done. She literally speed walked me out and didn’t ask if I had any questions. In fact I don’tknow what medicine I should pick up and instructions on what to do.

Ling is an excellent doctor who communicates to me well. Her bedside manner is superior. She is very trustworthy and caring. However, I had a bad experience this time due to the unprofessional service of one of her staff. I hadsome questions regarding my prescription on this weekend. I wasn’t sure if I should take it or not due to an unforeseen issue that is not included in my prescription or advise given by my doctor. It was hours behind my schedule. I was in a different time zone. I waited until 6 AM on Sunday in PST to call the office and leave a message for Ling. I got a call back after 6 hours. The staff blamed me for calling them so early that I ruined their Sunday. She asked me to carefully calculate the time difference between my timezone and PST and call them after 9 AM only. I do not know that I can’t call them out of their working hours due to an health issue that I should or should not take my prescription on the schedule. I’d recommend that Ling hires good clinical staff who can match her professionalism. I don’t feel well during this visit.

Dr. Ling is very smart and seems a good doctor. I was impressed with her ability to diagnose and even test pre-Alzheimer's. The only negative is that she seems strung out. Her mind is racing which takes her focus away fromyou. Either that, or she is not a good listener. Either that, or my communication was babble and not worth listening to. She could cause people to feel like what they said was useless. On to the next patient! My time is precious with so many patients stacked up.

I had been with Dr Ling for a few years. Dr Ling was very professional at all times as well as her staff. She is a very caring doctor, very knowledgeable as in the reviews. Her staff is also super niceand accommodating. I have never waited longer than 15 minutes in the waiting room. You can tell Dr Ling really cares about her patients.

While Dr. Ling was great, her staff was not. I had a horrible experience with the 2 staff that checked me in. They did not understand what I was saying and could not answer my questions. I'm not sure if itwas a language barrier, but they came off as rude. I would recommend Dr. Ling, however, the initial experience I had was not the best.

The staff and doctor were very nice and professional. I had to wait in the waiting room for a small amount of time and once I was taken to the examination room the doctor came in immediately. Dr. Ling had alreadyreviewed my medical history by the time she saw me and had follow up questions which I appreciated. We spoke about my symptoms and she had immediate solutions. It was also nice and convenient that there is a pharmacy downstairs in the same building. Thank you!

Very friendly office. Dr. Ling listened to everything I shared with her and given it was my first appointment with her, she took the time to go through all of my records and ask detailed questions about my health. She isvery straight forward and looked into everything I had concerns about with great detail and blood tests. I got tests done the same day and will be going back in a week for follow up! Definitely going to make her my primary.

She's so kind and understanding. Not afraid to talk about the grosser aspects of bodies but she makes sure you don't feel uncomfortable talking about it. Also, I had lab results come in on a Friday night and she called meon Saturday about treatment options, which is kind. Normally, you'd have to wait all weekend I think. She's very knowledgeable and explains her procedures as well.

Everything went very smooth and got to see the doctor very quickly. Two things that I really appreciate about Dr.Jie Ling were: (1) The very thorough walk-through of the process and the way my concerns were addressed with pros/cons covered.(2) To do what is the most appropriate for the patient, instead of having alternative agendas.
