In general, making appointments with PIH doctors for well check ups and minor health issues is inefficient and when I am finally able to make an appointment, it takes at least a month before you are able to see a doctor. I have a PPO and as much as I like my doctors, I am truly considering leaving PIH.

July 18, 2019
It took 3 hours for someone to tell me everything was ok with my unborn child. I had to ask several times before anyone told me anything. I understand that tests may take time, but tell patients that the results are still being processed instead of ignoring them completely when the entire floor was empty. I felt incredibly unsupported during a very stressful time.
July 12, 2019
She LISTENED to me. I have gone to another doctor for this issue and I left his office feeling helpless and dismissed. After leaving the Women's Center, I felt like I was heard and had options.
