Overall Patient Rating - November 2019
She literally flies into exam room talks fast & flies out. Two minutes at most spent with patient. What is the problem? Why are visits 2 minutes that is seeing 30 patients an hour.
  Overall Patient Rating - November 2019
This provider seemed very efficient, kind of a dynamo, but also in a hurry, and she could have listened better. I mentioned concerns about the cost of medications, yet she prescribed something that cost $350 for 30 capsules. She doesn't quite fit what I like in a doctor.
  Overall Patient Rating - November 2019
I love Dr. Zhang! She is so compassionate and patient and explains everything in ways I can understand.
