I loved everything about it. I was there for a preconception appointment and am rather anxious, just in general but specifically relating to trying to have a baby. She was reassuring and extremely personable. She was firm with me too when necessary but in a way that didn't make me feel stupid or bad about myself. Overall, I would highly recommend her!

I visited her for Annual Pap Smear. I was there for about 45mins in total. I waited for 25 mins in total, before I met her, and after an assistant checked my weight, etc., and after I put on the pink paper robe. Dr. Laura Cha was very nice. She was quick in speaking and performing the tests, and I liked the quick way. It was my first test, so I was nervous, but she made me feel it was ok, and everything was ok.

Doctor Cha was awesome. However, the office staff has a major attitude issue. She was impatient and almost scolded me for using two emails in their system. Hello? ! Get used to technologyand have some sense of decency

Great experience with Laura Cha. I felt very comfortable discussing my concerns. Laura was very knowledgeable, and provided me with information that was specific to my needs rather than generic responses. The woman at the front desk was also friendly. Overall a welcoming environment, and I look forward to future appointments.

Dr. Cha was great. She was personable and elicited my reasons for the visit. The examination room was clean and tidy. The assistant who brought me back to the room was punctual and professional. The two ladies at the front desk ignored me both before and after my visit when I tried to check in with them. I am not even sure what their roles are in the office but if they are not meant to interact with patients, they should get an office in the back with a door.

Since i was a new patient, I arrived about 10 minutes before my 4pm appointment for an annual check up. Dr. Cha was just finishing up with only other patient in the office and saw me right away. I was out the door and on my way home at 4:15! This was such a nice surprise as I'm used to waiting at least 30 minutes in any doctors office. Dr. Cha was so nice and easy to talk to. When my test results came in I received an automated message and was able to go on the website to see them. Could not be any more convenient!
