Very pleasant place, people are very friendly.
She was nice.
It is always a pleasure seeing my obgyn
I had a great experience! Dr. Ho was professional but also very warm and friendly at the same time. I am happy I found this place.
This was my first visit with Dr. Ho, and I found her to be personable and knowledgeable. I didn't feel rushed during the visit, and she really listened to my concerns. The only downside was a long wait to be seen.
Very polite, professional and helpful.
This was my first time, all the staff was very informative and friendly. I was quick to get in less then a 15 minute wait. Dr. Ho listened to all the symptoms before offering a treatment and provided me with all the necessary instructions so I knew what steps to take next.
Actually, I got weighed, blood pressure taken, and Dr. Ho got called to a delivery. It had been 3 years since I had been there, but what do you do? I was leaving for Az. In 2 days, so I have to wait until spring. I still love her as my doctor & Kim is a very special person. I have been going there for 38 years!
One year ago, I saw Dr. Phoebe Ho for my annual appointment. I never received my pap smear results, and when asked for a breast exam (which has ALWAYS been included in all my past appointments with other doctors), Dr. Ho said "Well your husband knows your breasts well enough to know if there is any difference - right?" I insisted they do their job, and although her and the doctor she was training said they would do the full exam, they both left without ever doing it. Now I've learned I have Breast Cancer and am dealing with that process that could have possibly been addressed much earlier. I'm only 30 years old, so it's very uncommon in women my age, but it still would have been nice to have had a doctor who actually seemed like she cared about my well being and didn't discriminate against me because I choose to not take birth control for my own health reasons.
Not very personal at all. I was offended by age comments and she failed to help me with any questions that I had, not a fan. I will NOT be going back to her.
Staff wasn't friendly at all and didn't even say hello to me upon entering. I was there 20 minutes early and was seen about 15 minutes late. The nurse who saw me was very quiet and didn't introduce herself, I had to ask what her name was. My husband went in with me and nobody said hello to him even after I introduced him. Dr Phoebe came in and was cold. Didn't seem interested in me or my husband, got right down to business though it was my first time at a gynecologist and I was nervous. Then she didn't even bother doing a pap smear saying I was "too young for cancer" (like no one my age has ever gotten cancer at 23). Didn't do a breast exam. Acted like she didn't believe my symptoms and every one of them I explained to her she just blamed it on "lack of exercise or proper vegetables" though I've struggled with chronic-like fatigue forever. Finally proscribed me medicine without taking any tests, said "it doesn't matter if you are pregnant because this medicine is fine" but the label specifically said "don't take while pregnant or if you suspect you're pregnant" and gave me different dosing info than the package said. What did she say about my severe cramping? ...."take advil" lol. Hardly smiled unless belittling me for an answer I gave to a question.
She was nice. I went in to get birth control. And thats what I left with. So can't really complain.
Very informative & I did not feel intimidated at all like I was in my previous appointments with another OBGYN.
It was clean, nice, and the Dr's were amazing, and understanding to personal situations.... def would recommend this Dr's office....
Dr. Ho is a very compassionate medical professional. Very thorough and explains well. If time permits, she would visit w/ u to have a multi-faceted consultation about the changes happening in her patient's life.
Great bedside manner; the Doctor spent 10 minutes with me prior to my exam discussing my concerns, current health, questions I had. Very personable and made me less nervous.
Very knowledgeable and understanding to patients needs. She put me at ease.
Everyone is very warm and kind, for a regular exam I'm sure this would be a fine place to go. However if there is something wrong and you want to know immediately how to resolve it I don't think this is the place to go. Dr. Ho is very nice but has more of a sit and see what happens instead of a let's get to the bottom of this now take on things.
They didn't show that I had an appointment, but they saw me anyway. The zocdoc did not work for me.
