Stop weighing patients outside the room in the halls sand fully clothed. It has an unnecessary 2 to 3 pounds to their weight making it in accurate. Not only that my weight is no one's business but my doctors and my nurse so I would appreciate being in the room privately when it is done

Parking was horrible. Could not find parking in the back parking lot, many cars were circling and looking for parking. Had to drive to the lot in front of the building, and walk a long way up the stairs and around the fence. Thank goodness I can walk but someone older or disabled may not have been able to do this. I think it's time to move the employee parking lot elsewhere

Doctor was friendly . She was in a rush after I asked one question she answered it and assisted me. I had another question but she was in a hurry to leave the room. Felt very rushed. Did not have a great experience with this doctor. She needs to slow down. I felt like she could not wait to leave . Maybe book less patients? Or get more doctors. Did not feel like personal care.

April 11, 2022
Dr. Soto takes the time to listen and hear what I'm saying. Her body language never says she's impatient or raring to go off to the next patient, but that I'm who she's thinking about and I'm who she's focused on at that moment. It means a lot to be heard.

PIH providers including hospital care is extremely professional. Patient care is definitely their priority, I had been bouncing around with other doctors not being part of PIH and my condition worsen over the years.

March 04, 2022
Today was my first time meeting dr sara Soto. And out of all the drs I have spoken to in regards to my pregnancy she is the only one who made me feel like I had options. She was very detailed in explaining the process of things that may need to be done. I feel like I am now very informed. The previous drs Ive seen towards the end of my pregnancy almost made me feel like there were no options and basically the only way to have my baby was to be induced which felt very scary. Extremely happy with my visit yesterday and the dr I seen. As of last week I was scared to give birth but now after yesterdays appointment I am back to feeling excited and confident about giving birth to my son.
March 02, 2022
Dr. Soto was very attentive and interested in what I had to say. And also considered future prevention care as well. She did a very good job and very thorough job.
March 02, 2022
Sara Soto is the best doctor I've ever had. She's been really taking care of my needs. She's help me a lot in the past 2 years with my medical situation. She's gone above and beyond any other doctor that I've ever had. And I really appreciate her a lot and I would like her to be recognized for this. Thank you.
March 01, 2022
The office was great. Trying to schedule the recommended tests/labs was challenging. We had to wait over an hour to be registered for labs and then wait to get them drawn. I was on hold for over 20 minutes to schedule an ultrasound and was then told I called the wrong number. I had to use the scheduler at Downey PIH to help set up this appointment. The wait times to register and make appointments are disappointingly long. Very frustrating.
March 01, 2022
I am very unsatisfied with being unable to schedule a follow up appointment in 1 week with an MD and have to see an NP instead. I was told there was absolutely no MD available in 1 week. I am uncomfortable seeing an NP since the follow up appointment is not a routine follow up especially since I am having issues with my pregnancy that may end up with it being terminated.
February 28, 2022
I have been with Dr. Soto for several years now. I drive from Fontana to Whittier just to see her.
February 18, 2022
She's is one of the best doctor's that I've come across. Dr. Soto cares for patients, she listens to them, and overall just the best doctor you can ask for. I wish she specialized in all area so she go be my one go to doctor for everything.
February 18, 2022
Dr. Soto & her Nurse were very courteous.
February 07, 2022
Dr Soto is very professional and spends time giving medical recommendations.
February 01, 2022
My insurance covers 100% with no co-pay. However, every single time I visit I am asked to pay a co-payment. I have called multiple times already to get it resolved and nothing has been resolved. It's frustrating and annoying that this facility can't get this situation resolved.
February 01, 2022
Can you please stop playing the doctor profiles in the waiting room? They're cheesy and really annoying. Perhaps silence or comforting music would be a much better option. I feel like I am listening to a PIH ad while being in a PIH office. Kinda feels like PIH needs to overcompensate by having their doctors pitch how great PIH is. It's dumb.
January 25, 2022
Dr. Soto is absolutely lovely.
January 24, 2022
I love this office they are all great. However, I do not like being harassed after every appointment to fill out one of these surveys.
January 24, 2022
Everyone was amazing and super nice
January 21, 2022
This was the first time with Dr. Soto since my GYN Dr. retired! I don't like change and was feeling very apprehensive about my visit. Dr Soto's staff was very nice and professional, and I fell in love with Dr. Soto! She talked to me answered all my questions and made me feel like she cared.
January 21, 2022
Dr. Soto is very thorough and easy to talk to.
January 18, 2022
Your front office staff is very rude and condescending. They don't listen to the patients and they're very mechanical and not very compassionate. They're not human beings. They're very rude and obnoxious sometimes.

December 10, 2021
Had to wait 45 minutes in the office in a gown. I had to go out to see if I was forgotten about and when the doctor would come. While waiting I could here laughing outside my room so it was not an emergency that was the delay.very inconsiderate customer service. I had to take off work to come and had other appointments after this one. Very rude.

Dr. Soto is one of the sweetest, kindest most intelligent doctors at PIH. I truly enjoy all my visits with her. She always listens and is highly compassionate. She also helped diagnose my uterine cancer. When I visit her, she goes through my whole medical file and always gives me a smart take on my health. Wish you had more doctors with her bedside manner.
November 19, 2021
Dr. Soto has been a blessing to my life at a time when I needed her the most. Dr. Soto diagnosed me correctly when other providers were unable to. Dr. Soto is squeezing my surgery in before year-end because she understands the urgency to condition and wants me to return to my normal life pain-free as soon as possible.
November 10, 2021
Hi. I've been going to Sara Sota for several years and definitely trust her completely with my medical care. I did notice the front desk could be a little bit more friendly, or and attentive on greeting customers coming in and just kind of getting feedback on the wait list, and trying to call in to schedule appointment for a lab test has been a bit of a nightmare. The wait has been about seems like 15 to 30 minutes just to schedule an ultrasound which seems to be completely way too long. So, I don't know what's been going on or even and reschedule on things that I feel like that's been declined. This past experience, and it hasn't been in other years. So maybe someone can look into that. But thank you. Bye.
November 10, 2021
she listened to my concerns.
November 10, 2021
Dr. Soto listened well. Gave Me tender care. And I appreciate her professionalism, period.
November 10, 2021

I had a great experience with Dr. Soto. She met all my needs. She had a very concerning attitude and I felt all very, very comfortable in expressing to her my needs concerning my lack of sleep, and my body. I would see her again. I definitely would recommend her to a family member or a friend. She was a great provider.
