Very pleased with Dr. Abueg and the office staff ?
May 10, 2022
My primary is (name removed). And this is second time with a post off, could never get her an appointment with her. So I see Erika, which is also very wonderful. But I would like to see my primary. She never has any appointments available. Even for a post off. It was going to take a month. I think they should schedule something for post off.

After losing my Dr., who treated me for 30 years it was actually devastating, however after trying one other, who left the Group, much to my dismay I was connected with Erika Abueg and on first visit, was sold and completely felt at ease. I look forward to seeing her when necessary

I really like Dr Abueg. She listens to all my issues and tells her wisdom about it.
March 08, 2022
Yes, my comment has to do with the phone center that sets up the appointments. Basically, what occurred was I called and said you're number 3, you're going to be waiting about 4 minutes and then presses and it's 30, 40, 50, 60 minutes sometimes waiting for someone to come on the line, and of course they offer you that someone would call you back. But then again, you're waiting a very long considerable of time, and if they would just be honest and stating when when you call, I'm sorry at this time you're going to need to wait unfortunately we're backed up. We will try to get you as soon as possible. None of this time reference because it's incorrect. And everyone knows that. Thank you.
March 08, 2022
I really liked this physician and I felt like she was very caring, respectful and really listened to my concerns. She was great about talking with me about what I might be needing to stay healthy and she gave me the required referrals. She also made some suggestions for me to consider to assist with my pain management and for possible follow up care in the future. I had a great experience. Thank you.
March 03, 2022

PIH has become money hungry, i got sent to collections over 25 dollars and didnt wanna let me schedule an appt cause i owed 100 bucks its not like i owe thousands of dollars Then i asked for my providers to sign a waiver form for the booster since i just had covid and they refused.The first front office person told me hed ask and i will get ancall back and never did so i had to call and ask again! Last time i came an xray was ordered i was told i can get physical therapy and NEVER got a call. I have been coming to PIH for many years and the hospital as well and the nurses are always rude as fk! I will be looking for care else where from now on

Visit went well ... Dr. Abueg addressed the concern well for a 1st visit.
October 12, 2021
I was with Optum prior to October 1, 2012 and moved to PIH because I live in the area where I have been seen by PIH physicians while in the ER @ Whittier PIH and because of the treatment I received as well I decided that after approximately 40 years of being care for by Optum doctors that I wanted to be treated by PIH doctors because they gave such great service, listened to your needs and symptoms, and were quick at determining what medical needs were required. My first visit with my new physician solidified my decision, and I look forward to establishing new doctor patient relationships. Lastly, I have never received approval of my referrals directly following my visit with my primary doctor. It has always taken at minimum five days. I could not be more pleased. Thank you [name removed] Dr. Farag for excellent service and care.
October 08, 2021
My name is [PHI removed], and it was my first visit with... with the doctor, and I normally have Dr. Martinez and... but my experience was outstanding. She was friendly, approachable, concerned, listened to what my... my health care concerns were. I think that her recommendations for a urinalysis and other things that she shared and recommended for me, I was grateful. And, yeah, it was an extremely positive experience, and I would recommend her and certainly see her again. Thank you.
