Dr. Marsha MartinsonMD
8.5mi
OB-GYN
The office was surprisingly clean, updated, and nice; I found parking on a side street right nearby. The women behind the counter were very helpful in getting me the paperwork, and getting me started. The nurse that took my weight, history, and checked me in (she also took my blood later) was extremely nice and friendly. I only wish Dr. Martinson had been half as friendly. I'm extremely nervous during annual exams and PAPs because I've never been able to get comfortable with a doctor (constantly moving) and they're very painful for me. Dr. Martinson asked standard questions, talked about my history/method of contraceptives, and we started the exam. She did use a smaller speculum when I told her that the standard one hurt too much, but she wasn't nice or patient about it. She was very brusque and more interested in getting the exam over with than making sure I was comfortable. I guess she did her job, and that's all I can ask her to do. But she was also very curt with me about getting my prescription renewed (it was, admittedly, my fault I forgot the package) and warned me to call the nurses with it ASAP because she wasn't going to be in the office for more than another hour or two. She was about 30-40 minutes late to my appointment (I was sitting in the un-airconditioned exam room in those flimsy paper things waiting.... and waiting), too. So I guess really make sure you're on time for your appointment! The nurses and atmosphere alone are worth going here, but Dr. Martinson didn't really seem to care about me as a patient. She just wanted to get in and get out. BE WARNED. This office also changed my appointment without calling me to confirm it or ask! I booked my appointment through ZocDoc and the next morning I had an email saying that my appointment time had been changed. The people at ZocDoc were very nice about it, but it wasn't their fault. The nurse (Vanessa) also made my follow-up appointment without first asking what date/time worked for me. I have a really flexible schedule so it didn't matter either time. Just be wary of that!

Dr. Archna ChaudharyMD
3mi
Internist
I am new to CA and finding a new primary care Dr. sooner than later was important to me. After getting sick, it became a much bigger priority. I took the first available appointment listed online, which happened to be a week later. I wasn't particularly happy about that. Who can stand to be sick for that long before seeing someone? I had no major illness, so I knew I could hold out but it did make me a bit leery and wonder how hard it would be to get an appointment in the future if I really was sick. When I arrived (15 mins early), I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Chaudhary also has a walk-in clinic. This information may be listed somewhere online, but I didn't see it anywhere or in any of the reviews that I read. I was seen after my scheduled appointment time, but there were a couple of elderly patients ahead of me with some disabilities which required a little extra time, which is understandable. The waiting area began to fill up before I was seen and was full by the time I left. Dr. Chaudhary was very pleasant. Great bedside manner and asked enough questions to make me feel like I wasn't in some sort of "patient puppy mill" where she was churning through patients to get to the next. She advised of some non-medicinal things to try in addition to some lab work and a follow-up. I'm glad she didn't just throw a Rx at the problem and call it a day. She seemed to want to get to the root of the issue. I left feeling confident in my choice about selecting this Dr. and comfortable with her approach to my "treatment".
