    Kaiser Permanente Medical Center
    They are kind of all over the place. I like Kaiser because of the way they are put together. When I schedule appointments they book everything for me. Everything is on computers so there are no folders, charts and stuff. It is easy working with them. The doctors are good.

    Have been using PAMF for our entire family's primary care for 26 years. Additionally have been able to see highly qualified doctors covering multiple specialities to address knee and foot issues and surgeries; sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment; diabetes diagnoses, treatment and nutritional counseling. We moved 60 miles away, and still come to PAMF at various locations, because we prefer to have the quality of care and services offered within one organization. We have PPO insurance and would have changed to a different carrier if they didn't cover PAMF as a preferred provider. Highly recommend PAMF, and Dr. Macchello in particular.

    Jonathan Levin MD
    He performed surgery for two hernias for me. He was excellent. He is an emergency surgeon at two of the hospitals here in Marin. His bedside manner was excellent. He told me exactly as to what to do beforehand. He told me to walk a lot and build myself up. The surgery went beautifully. He told me that I would have some pain that I never had. Everything healed perfectly. Everyone that I have talked to, who had him as their surgeon has been very happy. I would absolutely use him again in the future.

    Pacific Pulmonary Services
    They come out at least once a month, sometimes twice a month on Thursdays.  They always bring me everything I ask for.  They are very reasonably priced.  They are really very thoughtful.  They call me faithfully every week.  When they say they are going to be here they are here.  There have been times I have had to be gone to a doctor's appointment when they come and they leave my stuffs outside and it would be everything that I had asked for.

    I was disatisfied overall. When I went in for visits, she hadn't taken the time to review my file and was trying to update her memory by a cursory review of my file while I was sitting there asking questions that had already been answered.

    Kaiser Permanente Medical Group
    All the Kaiser doctors are very good listeners. They interact well and respond well to our complaints. We've been very happy and have interacted with them for over 20 years. We can go online and they will either answer questions online or call. We've had a good experience with them and they are pretty good about trying to get us in. We have been perfectly happy with the staff. They are well run.

    My husband and I had not seen a doctor for many years, for a variety of reasons which included job and insurance changes, relocation and increasingly, media-based fear about the length of time since we'd seen a doctor. My husband went largely to humor me, I suppose, and I went because I decided I should act like a grown up (given that I'm 62) and go in and get yelled at, if necessary, rather than continue to put us both in danger by not having access to a doctor, if we needed one. I'm telling you this because IF you have any of the above worries, I would suggest you see this doctor and put some of your worries to rest. Dr. Welter was professional, a good listener, and seemed to be open to our own interpretations of what had happened to us since we last had any contact with the medical establishment. In any event, he didn't yell, he didn't laugh, and I didn't cry, much, so all in all, it was an unbelievably successful doctor's appointment, (based largely on the fact, I suppose, that he didn't find anything particularly wrong with either of us). He spoke with us thoughtfully about medicines, and had conversational remarks that indicated to us that he was quite well-informed. He had suggestions for us as to how to proceed with our own self-care, but he wielded those suggestions rather gently and with some practicality, which I appreciated. I knew I should report to Angie's List, but didn't, I guess because I continued to wonder what would happen if one of us got sick. It happens that my husband had an unusual pain recently that troubled him. He called and made an appointment. They gave him an appointment the next day. Dr. Welter saw him, did a test or two, then followed up with him the next day, suggesting a course of action apparently after giving this unusual series of symptoms considerable thought. Dr. Welter will be following up with my husband over the next weeks to follow up on his care. I'm now ready to concede that this basic attention and concern is what people meant when they talked about "having a doctor." I would recommend that, if you are seeking a doctor, you give Dr. Welter a try. We think quite a lot of him.

    Barbara Nylund MD,PHD
    She is a special specialist. You have to be referred to her. I think that she is incredible. I am so impressed with her knowledge of what goes on in the gut. She diagnosed the problem I had for years that I hadn?t complained about for that long, but it can be lethal if it is not caught. I can?t say enough good things about her.

    Schmitt, Dr. Cathleen E
    She is a very good doctor, and I like her very much. It is very easy to see her. I have to push her a little bit though to get what I want. The office environment is very nice. I would continue to use her in the future.

    Everything was absolutely excellent because he is just the best doctor you could ever want. He takes all the time you need so you never feel rushed or feel like he���s waiting to get to his next patient. He just sits there and answers every dumb question I might possibly have until I feel satisfied. He is always knowledgeable and if he doesn���t know the answer he finds it out. He is just an extremely caring doctor. I���ve always been able to get in that day or within a couple of days when I���ve needed them. The office is lovely. He is just unusual in today���s world because he cares more about the patient than he does about being a rich doctor. He is the kind of doctor who will come see you in the hospital if you need him. I would not be in as good of health if it weren���t for him.
