The doctor is great! The nurse is terrible and not proficient at all..the nurse gave me two shots to get blood for test but all failed... never have that happened in my previous experience at all... feel very awkward to see her eyes! And she told me to go to LabCorp to do that again.. so I have three times pains for blood withdrawal. I am so unsatisfied... but doctor’s advice is really great

I recently moved to SF so didn't have a PCP to go to for pain I was experiencing in my hip/leg. Found Dr. Tsang on zocdoc and made an appointment for this issue specifically but also as a trial to see if she can be my PCP going forward. The office is very modern and clean and she saw me promptly. The "cubicle" set up is interesting but I didn't mind it. I found the visit to be just a notch up on a teledoc experience or googling on webmd. It was less than 30 min and she barely touched me, gave me the diagnosis but didn't provide much in terms of treatment. I was in severe pain and she just told me to look online for various types of stretch therapy. Then *I* had to suggest that I take pain medication and perhaps look into physical therapy which she then agreed. I mean, I am basically creating my own treatment plan. I went to see a medical/sports massage therapist (on my own) which was life changing. He spent an hour pinpointing and treating the pain and created a customized stretch routine. I will not be going back to this doctor who clearly is not invested in my well being (did not even check in to see how I am doing) . The app they make you use is utter crap.

I came in for an immunology consultation for an upcoming trip. My appointment started almost 20 minutes late. The doctor did not seem very knowledgable about travel medicine- she was constantly looking things up and sounded unsure at times. I required a shot after the consultation. When the nurse arrived she asked what shot I required. Apparently she was not informed by the doctor. After the appointment I did not receive useful instructions for the medicines prescribed. One of the prescriptions was quite expensive and required immediate refrigeration but neither the doctor nor the pharmacist mentioned this so it went to waste. I regret going to this office.

Dr. Tsang was very nice and polite - she asked plenty of questions and took lots of notes. She is a good choice for a primary care doctor. Circle Medical is also an awesome place - very modern office and they let you do a lot of cool stuff from their app.

Clean, modern offices filled with friendly, personable staff leads right to friendly and understanding Dr. Tsang! She listened to my history, my concerns, and was thorough without being dismissive or alarming. I'm actually telling all of my friends they need to start going here for their Primary Care!

Greeted immediately upon entering the office and someone named Andre checked me in with an iPad. Since I downloaded the Circle Medical app and submitted all my info before the appt, check-in took less than a minute. Dr. Tsang saw me within 5 minutes of my arrival, and she was very polite and attentive - felt like she was listening to me, answering my questions in detail, etc. The office was also very clean and quiet enough without feeling uncomfortable/"sterile". It was a nice touch that they had little peppermint patties, starbursts and hand sanitizer at the waiting area. :) Very polite employees and doctor, and would definitely come back again if I need to see a PCP!
