This was first I met Gloria. She is thorough with questions to bring out needed details I would not have brought up otherwise. Considerate of my inadequate hearing.

Gloria is awesome. I recommend her to all my friends. She knows the balance between eastern and western medicine and when each is appropriate. She listened to me and showed concern when needed.

I like my provider. Having to use the MY Chart, like having it in front of them constantly, I find to be a bit disconcerting. Although I realize some of its benefits, it does seem to place some limits on the physical examination time and face to face contact.

My provider was wonderful and I fully respect her and felt respected by her, and I have already recommended her.However, I was told to request a script if I wanted it via mychart. Unfortunately I did this over a week ago and the pharmacy has not received a script yet. I have had to visit the pharmacy twice, and make multiple phone calls to the women's clinic and the pharmacy. I spoke to multiple people at the clinic who responded as though everything was taken care of, on three different days within the last week. I am still unable to pick up my prescription and this is really disappointing to me as a [...] and patient at the clinic.

I was so thankful to receive care from someone who is obviously knowledgeable of more "current" health advice, not the whole "low fat, eats lots of whole grains" dogma. That advice caused me a lifetime of health concerns, so I'm glad I've found someone open minded and interesting in helping me with lifestyle changes, rather than throwing a pill at symptoms. I look forward to being able to have a good relationship with her and am motivated by her advice.

I was very amazed and happy with the wonderful care I received at this facility. Dr. Kornish and all the staff there are very caring, understanding and compassionate about my health care needs. I am so very grateful for everyone there! They were very quick to call and schedule me for additional appointments when an irregularity was found in my mammogram. They were also very helpful in assisting me with financial resources, [...].

Ms. Kornish didn't take the time to read my chart and greeted me as a 'new' patient, which I wasn't. Insensitive, to my health concerns, did not provide me with requested information regarding a health issue. Ms. Kornish determined I needed blood pressure medication after a single borderline high reading. [...]

waited 50 minutes for you appointment. My provider then forgot to order my blood work. I was there at 8am fasting and they did not have the order. She was rushed during my visit and obviously did not remember what I needed after I left. I will be going to [...] for my next appointment.

Ms. Kornish spent most of our office visit reviewing medications in my record, even though I spent an equal amount of time doing the same thing with her nurse. The records were incomplete and faulty. She did not previously record nor recollect medications she had prescribed for me. After telling me she would contact me about my lab work the next day, she did not contact me for 2 weeks. The the same thing happened a year ago. I had to remind her to follow-up on my lab results after waiting 2 weeks. She prescribed nutritional supplements without explaining the reasons why.
