Everyone was great, but a small issue with the nurse, I couldn't understand her under the mask and I had to keep asking her to repeat herself in which you could see she was getting frustrated and rolled her eyes. I've NEVER had any issues with anyone at PIH EVER, until this day. My only hope is that she is not always like that and maybe just had a bad morning when I came in.

It was my first time seeing Dr Sánchez. He provided the care I expected based on my previous visits with other doctors there. He was attentive, caring, and answered all of my questions and concerns.

I just want to take this time to thank the front office staff your nursing staff. Dr. Sanchez and the physician assistant that he had or the the nurse practitioner. I'm not sure what her level is but they were all really great and I appreciate it. The service and care that I have there. Nothing but respect for PIH.

I just want to say that the front desk person did not greet me and was very rude. Besides that, the nurse and doctor were amazing. Thank you for taking care of me.

Dr. Sanchez bed side manner was great. He made me feel safe, respected, and heard. We need more doctors like him, who always has a smile on his face and is willing to listen to his patients, as they are the experts of their selves and their bodies. Thank you.
