April 02, 2021
I am very happy seeing Sara Soto.
April 02, 2021
Dr Soto is the best doctor !
March 30, 2021
Dr. Soto is absolutely amazing!! I get really anxious when I have doctor visits but she makes things as comfortable as possible. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful! Wait time was extremely sort too
March 30, 2021
Felt at ease and very comfortable with everyone.
March 29, 2021
It was great. Sara Soto's great. Several people, or several women in my family go to see her. It's just... she's awesome. Everything was super clear, super friendly. Already recommended to friends of the family. So yeah, no, no problems there. It was just a good doctor's visit.
March 10, 2021
Sara Soto is one on the best Doctors I have come across in her field, I wish I could find an Internal Medicine Doctor like Dr. Soto. Thank you for making me feel cared for.
March 10, 2021
The staff in the back office were pleasant and caring along with Dr. Soto amazing. However the encounter I had in the front by one of the registration clerk was the opposite. The way she asked for me to pay for my copayment when I had asked to be billed was really inappropriate and did not match the values and delivery of care of PIH, a patient next to me even offered to pay for my copayment thank god for some kindness being shown however I did not accept and did pay the copayment myself and to find out after my appointment the same registration clerk informed me she charged me on a wrong account, voided my payment and then said she could bill me afterwards because she had made a mistake. This is not appropriate character and being rude is not appropriate customer service I spoke to her supervisor and explained why I was upset I have never had issues with the care I received, there are ways to ask for things and had she not been rude in the first place things may have gone differently. But overall Dr. Soto and the ladies who took care of me afterwards showed great respect, compassion and care through my visit.
March 09, 2021
Since I met Dr. Soto, my life has changed since she is a person who understands that the area where she works is sensitive and she, as a woman, treats one as if she were herself. Although my age is not for frequent visits with her for as long as I need her, she will always be my favorite doctor and I regret not having met her before.
March 08, 2021
I had to return I was having a problem i was able to see the dr Soto She was so nice to me and help me thank you
March 05, 2021
The experience was very efficient. Since I had a fairly cut-and-dried issue, it was the best experience. I would very much recommend Dr. Soto for routine kinds of issues. I can't say what I would think with more complex problems. In general, I'm inclined toward Functional Medicine, which is a rather different medical model.
March 05, 2021
Dr. Soto is fantastic. She spent time explaining everything and developed a plan for a future pregnancy. I'm so grateful to have her as my OBGYN.
March 01, 2021
I've always felt comfortable and trust Dr. Soto's feedback.
February 26, 2021
It was great .
February 24, 2021
It was my first time seeing Dr Soto and I would definitely continue scheduling with Dr Soto again.
February 24, 2021
Dr.Soto is my first obgyn and every time I have seen her she makes me feel so comfortable and very easy to talk to no matter how nervous or embarrassed I may feel.
February 23, 2021
The lack of patient care from scheduling team is terrible. Staff don't greet you properly when answering phones call and when scheduling and appointment they always say there book and no appointments are available.
February 22, 2021
Dr. Soto was very nice and took time to explain everything she was doing
February 22, 2021
I have great confidence in Dr. Soto. She was very up beat and positive. I came away from my appointment knowing I was in good hands.
February 16, 2021
What you can do is get rid of that gate where you don't have to pay to go out. I don't even come on the property because of that. I don't pay to take my child to the doctor. There are a lot of hospitals that do not make you pay, and it's probably not up to you, it's probably PIH hospital itself. So you need to talk to the CEO, and tell him to get rid of it, and quit charging people to come there, or you need to have something where it's paid for. Why are we bringing and going to that hospital for care if you don't accommodate parking? So you need to either make it to where
February 16, 2021
Very nice and courteous, what we need as patients and expect from our doctors.
February 10, 2021
Dr. Soto has been so encouraging throughout this whole experience and I'm truly grateful for her.
February 08, 2021
I was told a procedure was needed and surgery scheduler would call me. A week later, the order still has not been placed and the surgery scheduler doesn't have anything to schedule for me. So my care has been delayed.
February 05, 2021
I was listened to extremely well & made me feel less nervous about the process
February 05, 2021
Thank you for your support and quality of care.
January 27, 2021
Your new parking system sucks and I won't be returning because of it. I'll be taking my kids to a new Peditirican and finding a new Gyno. I had 6 minutes left on my parking ticket and I was not able to pay for the parking but didn't have time to leave because with line was too long so I had to stand there for six minutes to wait to pay. It's the dumbest thing I have ever seen and I cannot wait to never come back.
January 26, 2021
I'd like to add that Dr. Soto is the best gynecologist a female could have. She is thorough,she is excellent, she's kind. She is trustworthy and she listens most importantly, she listens to whatever issues I want to speak for myself. Whatever issues I have,and she comes to brings me to a conclusion and sits there to create the best treatment plan at least for me. And I'm sure and I highly sure that she does that for other patients. She is by far the best gynecologist any Hospital can have.
January 18, 2021
Dr. Soto is kind and friendly
January 18, 2021

Dr. Sara Soto has many wonderful attributes, ie., patient, knowledgeable, professional, excellent attitude and went above & beyond to resolve my medical concern. Thanks to her diagnosis, I was able to have a consultation with my gastroenterologist. I am very grateful to her attention to detail, and I feel privileged to have her as my OBGYN. Thank you.
