    I don't usually write doctor evaluations, but outstanding service by North Coast Cardiology over the years surely deserves a praise. First of all, in an era of conveyer-belt medicine it is truly nice to find a place where patients come first. Its not easy to run a private practice in today's medical landscape. Its much easier to join a big group or a hospital and have the 'machine' bring you the new patient at a fifteen minute interval. Only the best doctors, in my opinion, can resist that trend and use their skills and experience to *earn* every single patient they have. North Coast Cardiology has wonderful support staff who are very professional and willing to take the time to answer all of your questions in a polite and human manner. Scheduling appointments, having Rx sent, labs etc are handled with wonderful efficiency, and yet one never gets the feeling that you are just a case or a number... Dealing with technicians and nurses is also very reassuring - you immediately know that there are no spring chickens there, every one knows their task and are at the top of their field. I am sure of that. Dr. Ludington would not have it any other way. However for me, the real reason one would choose North Coast Cardiology is Dr. Ludington. I have taken my family members to many doctors over the years, but only a few standout as true professionals. Dr. Ludington is definitely one of them. Dr. Ludington is a highly educated doctor - Stanford, UCSF Medical School (one of the top in the world), UCSD (also one of the top Medical Schools in the world) coupled with years of practice and learning at top SoCal hospitals puts her credentials above most of the field. No matter what our media or insurance companies will tell us, not all doctors are educated the same way. Not all of them have the same experience. I trust Dr. Ludington's education and experience. The results clearly show it as well. What makes Dr. Ludington even more special is her willingness to care for the patient in an old-fashion ways - she takes time to listen, never hurrying an elderly person, she takes time to answer questions (either directly or though her wonderful nurses), she takes time to understand individuality of each patient's situation and uses all of her vast knowledge and experience to determine the best treatment possible. Again, without going into specific details in a public review, results always show it for my family. Dr. Ludington is not a magician, psychiatrist or your best friend wanna be or anything else - she is a very serious, focused, down to business Cardiologist, who works very hard, together with her staff, to take care of every single patient under her care with the best tools modern medicine offers. My family has great results under her care and I would recommend her practice without hesitation.

    My daughter had a horribly ingrown toenail and was very worried about having it removed. Dr. Dustin was awesome. He joked around with her and made her feel very relaxed before starting the procedure. He numbed her toe and she barely felt anything at all. I highly recommend this practice.

    They changes doctors kind of frequently lately. So far, they have been okay. Dr. Kuning is my Gynecologist. I like him. You have to deal with Kaiser to go to them. The doctor that I saw there, she���s not there anymore, she went on to do some other kind of specialty work. It���s a good company to deal with. When I had my uterine cancer, when I first had a symptom, I knew what it was. They didn���t do a DMC or anything. My doctor waited a year, I don���t have her anymore. By the time they got it, it could have gotten to stage 2 but it didn���t. Something like that can happen, sometimes because...these prices, these costs���I don���t know. The doctors I known are fine. You can get service very fast.

    When I talk to people, they are always talking about that Kaiser is very difficult but I do not fine anything like that. My two children, who are 35 and 32, where indeed born there at the hospital and I have had nothing but good experiences with Kaiser. I had a heart valve put in, Kaiser did not do it because Kaiser did not have the specialist, so they sent me to some other hospital and they had an excellent doctor that did it. Kaiser is good and I enjoy it. I am old, I am 76, so I go to the doctor a lot because of my heart condition and I am overweight so I have other illnesses, and they really take good care of me. I see them at least once a month for a check-up. I would rate them high, because they keep me alive.

    He was very nice and I found him very easy to talk to. I thought that he was very thorough. I was very pleased. The staff all seemed very friendly. They were very close to my house, so it made it really convenient.

    I have had excellent experience with them. They seem to pay attention to the patients. They spend the time to take care of you. They are not shoveling you through like a big factory. You have to wait quite a while to see a counselor. Once you get in, its fine.

    Dr. David Woodruff tested my dad, then recommended hearing aids that would meet the needs of his hearing loss. There was no sales effort to try to get us to purchase more than what dad needed. Very happy with the results.

    He's a fantastic doctor. I've been seeing him for probably 15 years now. He's an excellent physician. He went of on his own which was really nice but he was in a group before that. He's an excellent, caring physician and his staff was excellent. Easy to get appointments and has great bedside manner and a good physician.

    Core would not accept the prescription for physical therapy from our family physician, who is an MD. Instead they insisted on an exam by one of their physicians. This meant another insurance co-pay and additional treatment charges.
    They charged for a and quot;missed appointmentand quot; when no appointment had ever been made for that time, consequently, not missed.
    Suffice it to say that the treatment received was fine and therapists were knowledgable, but the office administration and billing is very lacking and needs improvement.

    Dr. Spencer was very, very pleasant, easy to get along with, but he did not do his job.  Last week, I went to another doctor who diagnosed acute tendonitis and described why I was having the pain and what I could do about it.  This doctor conducted strength tests with his hands to determine my problem, took maybe a minute or two.  Dr. Spencer dismissed my issue without having touched my area of pain.  How many doctors do not perform an examination?  Obviously, I will never return to Alvera Podiatry, but perhaps, you will have an appointment that does not fall on a Saturday where the doctor seemed incredibly anxious to get out of the office and not provide the service he is there to do and what you paid for.
