My experience at the office was great what was not great was the call center. I told her this was for a complete physical . First time going with this Dr. when I arrived they said this was not for a physical but follow up? That was not the reason for my visit. How can it be a follow up if I have never been there. Now I have to reschedule a visit for a physical.

I went for help on a sensitive matter and I felt care and concern. Everyone was kind and friendly, and helped me feel at ease. Thank you so much.

I liked my visit with Dr. Li and we have a longer scheduled appointment next quarter, I'm looking forward to that opportunity. She is very responsive to the type of care I prefer, I'm glad we happened upon one another. Thank you.

Receive very warmly. Would smile and friendly. I was very anxious about my condition. She also gave me a few pointers about about what to do. I found very helpful. Also I was greeted warmly by her staff. After leaving I felt I had the right doctor at the time. Thank you Dr. Li & Staff. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year ?

I have a apoint..I had an appointment with the PA Connie. However, she was not there and I wasn't told you I was after there and I was very impressed and how quick I was able to see a doctor and Dr. Cathleen Li and I really appreciate the staff. Accommodating me to see the doctor as soon as possible. I was there to see it take only about like 10 minutes for me to see Dr. Li and I really appreciate that because I already I couldn't come back later because I had a previous commitment. But thank you very much. Thank you.

Soon as she saw my age and what I have to say, she came up with one answer and that's all she would discuss and would not get any further, when I go there my doctors are very (INAUDIBLE), they're very good and they they give me the opportunity to really talk to them and stuff. And this was not the case.

Dr. Li was very good and helpful.

Dr. Li took my complaints and symptoms seriously and referred me to the specialist right away for my first issue. She also gave me good first steps to take for the second issue while I wait for clearance to begin physical therapy. I feel very validated.

I hope to make Dr Li my Doctor for many many years. Why you ask? Simple, she made me feel like a person, not a patient or a number. She answered all of my questions and concerns, she was approachable, last but not least had a genuine care. When you have a doctor like this on your corner, there is no need to look anywhere else. Thank you Dr Li!

I'm a new patient and I had the best experience in this doctors office. Down from scheduling the appointment, the check in and seeing the nurse and doctor. It all was on such a timely manner. I have found my new doctor and office. I just loved it here.

Dr. Cathleen Li is the best I just love her .

My nurse was extremely comforting and caring. I'm not real comfortable going to the doctor but Dr Li is awesome she has a great smile when she walks in the door and she really cares about you. Thank you doctor Li for caring.

Dr.Li is amazing, she's a wonderful doctor she is very professional and respectful. I am very comfortable speaking with her about my health. She is very thorough with her work. Also my nurse on my visit was courteous, kind and professional.

The care that I receive fromDr Li and other physicians at PIH is excellent. I continue to experience troubling experience with the billing department. I was given erroneous information that could effect my health because of their negligence. I am covered by two different health insurances. I was told by one of the staff that I could no longer be seen and that my insurance no longer covered me. I need to make calls to my insurance carrier and it was not true. I believe this kind of service puts PIH in a liable position. If it were not for excellent care received, I would have left. Please correct this.

It was pleasant.

Cathleen Li was great! She took time to listen and answer all my questions and concerns. She even came back in the room to answer one lat question I forgot. I would definitely recommend her to all my family and friends.
October 04, 2021
I felt rushed. I came with a list of things I wanted to discuss and felt like dr. had a quick answer to everything vs actually listening and taking the time to talk through things with me. She didn't address one thing on my list...
October 04, 2021
Easy process to check in, I didn't wait long at all to be seen
