I recently moved to SF and needed to have my annual wellness check and I found Dr Hom. Typically annual checkups are 100% covered by my insurance so I was surprised to receive a bill. After talking to someone at PacificWomen's OBGYN I found out it was because we talked about things off the "wellness checklist" that then was determined to be an additional visit. Dr Hom was very friendly and easy to talk to. She immediately talked to me about my age (mid 30s) and asked if I had plans to have children. I asked a few questions and that is when I was charged. I didn't initiate the conversation, although not a surprising topic, but I feel that I was almost set up for that. I don't feel that I trust going back to her and while I do think she was a nice doctor I don't want to incur charges unknowingly and I want to feel comfortable having a conversation with my doctor. I also would note that they do not have electronic medical record system. The billing team was very helpful though!

Dr Hom is wonderful! She really took the time to get to know me and my medical history. She was super friendly and knowledgeable. The annual exam was very fast and I asked for an IUD consultation where she explain allof the different brands, the pros and cons of each, and how to get one. Can’t recommend enough, she is the nicest OBGYN I’ve seen!

This was hands-down the best experience I've ever had at the Gyno. Dr. Hom was so brilliant to talk to. She was very personable, made me feel at ease, and talked to me about my history and made sure to answerall my questions. I had to deal with an immediate problem and Dr. Hom jumped to help me out. She went above and beyond to make sure I got the care I needed and did it all while asking like a caring friend. I can't recommend her enough. The office staff was also very efficient, organized and managed my appointment very well even with a packed office.

Dr. Joanne Hom was extremely friendly and informative. Although I scheduled only a birth control consultation, she performed a full annual exam (which was free with my insurance), wrote me two prescriptions, and helped me start the process of getting an IUD.

All staff I encountered were very nice and approachable. The clinic seemed very receptive to women of all ages/stages of life, which is refreshing compared to clinics focused solely on pregnancy or family planning. Dr. Hom is one of the bestGyno's I have seen! She was very down to earth and provided recommendations tailored to my lifestyle, as well as suggested alternatives should my insurance not cover some (not many doctors take this into consideration!). I have already recommended her to 3 of my girlfriends and will only book my women's health appointments with her going forward!

Dr. Hom is one of the most genuine and kind doctors I have ever met. Her bedside manner is phenomenal and for someone needing to see an OB/GYN, that is extremely important to me. She even memorized my medical history fromprevious doctors I've visited and that lets me know she truly cares about her patients. Thank you, Dr. Hom! Can't wait to see you again. Tiffany
