Very respectful and polite.
August 25, 2022
Dr. Cochran was very friendly and respectful. But we had to read between the lines as what is wrong with my mom. We had to surmise that my mom had beginnings of Alzheimer. I don't know enough to make any other judgement.

The doctor is amazing but the front desk staff were not friendly. I took the time to complete the online check in but was not allowed to use the line for online check in. I had to sit and wait till called and talk to staff before I could proceed upstairs to wait in that waiting room. If you have customers do part of staffs work by taking their own time to check in online, you shouldn't have to wait to check in at the office, or answers more questions. I thought that was unprofessional. But the doctor and nurses are awesome.

the doctor is very attentive and offers options to make sure my sons health issues are addressed
June 06, 2022
All the care was perfect, it gives you confidence. But where is it where you don't leave the messages so that they answer 1 questions that they don't have to ask no, they don't take long to answer 2 days ago. I need to communicate with your doctor and they still haven't answered me.

The nurses or the helpers for the provider they have no patience, and we didn't talk very nice. Thank you.

Dr. Keith Cochran was prompt, friendly yet professional. I found out he attended , worked at the Veteran's Hospital in Long Beach, California in conjunction to his studies at University California in Irvine. It is very possible I worked with him before I retired when I was 64 yrs old .I am 75 yrs old now. It is a small world ?.

Dr. Cochran Is a sweetheart! He did all the appropriate testing. He told me alternative diagnosis that I would have and he listened to me. I'm so glad I chose him! The appointment took an hour and he ordered a nuclear medicine scan and physical therapy for me. No other doctor has taken the time with me and not made me feel rushed like he took with me.

Everything was good.
January 31, 2022
It was my 1st telephone visit. It was not bad at all.
January 28, 2022
Dr. Cochran was wonderful. The only thing I can say is that he... it took a very long time to be able to see him.... he was scheduling 3 months out and my follow up appointment is also 3 months out. So that's the only negative thing I can say.
January 28, 2022
The sign-in office on the first floor isn't very courteous.
January 19, 2022
I made a mistake on the first question you asked, that should have been a 4 is well. Dr. Cochran was...was very attentive, and I thought he was excellent. Thank you.
January 18, 2022
The doctor and his staff are ALWAYS warm and welcoming, which makes the patient feel relaxed and confident. This doctor and his staff are ALWAYS professional, which makes me feel secure in my prognosis and treatment plan. Wonderful for me with a long term illness.
January 13, 2022
Only that a lot of information was given. I wish there had been a way to write Dr Cochran's thoughts down for us to review once we got home. The written report didn't include everything (rather difficult as there was so much discussed!) Really liked him, and look forward to seeing him again!
January 12, 2022
Well, it's like when I first got the appointment to call him. I had to wait a very long time before I could see him, like over a month. That was kind of you know, what if it would have been an emergency, that I would have had to see him and I couldn't waited that long that would have been kind of detrimental to my health. But as far as when I did see him, he was very very good, about his services and so it was his staff in providing me care, but the wait period. In which we have to wait to see him, is kind of long. Which is not really a good thing.
January 10, 2022
Dr. Keith Cochran is an exceptional doctor, easy to talk to and clearly interested in my well being. It is such a relief to have the right answers at the ready if need be.
