Amazing doctor! It is very difficult to find a good endocrinologist in this area. I am very disappointed that she is leaving.
May 2, 2020
Unfortunately Dr. V is leaving end of June. Why? She is excellent and our community needs her. I am very disappointed . Replacing her with a PA? NO My experience with PA and NP are they are very poor at diagnositic work. I will not use one.
May 2, 2020
If you replace Dr. V with a PA I will not recommend. I won't be able to because she will be gone!

The present staff is excellent. My problem is with FCPP management. I finally found a good office and doctor to go to and the office is being closed. So far you have changed doctors on multiple occasions and now your shutting the office down. I really don't know if I will ever support FCPP or want to do business with that network If anyone should be surveyed it's the FCPP management

the doctor never asked me how I was sleeping, eating, how I felt. nothing. she would not look at articles that I brought about alternative medicine for Hashimoto disease. very rigid and not warm at all. staff in the waiting were super nice and helpful and friendly.

because of the corona virus I was given the option to have a telephone call Dr. visit. I greatly appreciated that. I undergo infusions for psoriatic Arthritis that lowers my immune system

Staff uses my preferred pronouns, which is AWESOME (last doctor did not and referred to me only as "patient"). Use of pronouns and staffs warm welcoming demeanor makes me feel safe.

I had to wait almost 2 months to schedule my first appointment. The office staff is probably the better office staff I've seen in a long time.
Dec 29, 2019
The best I can say on my first visit is I believe the doctor knows how to work with insulin pumps. She is very good with the patients also knows her stuff.

Jul 20, 2019
our area has so few doctors, so you don't have much of a choice as to who you're going to.
Jul 16, 2019
I will NOT recommend this practice to anyone. It is very unfortunate that there are so few endocrinologists in the San Luis Obispo area and that this level of care is tolerated because there are no other options except going to Santa Barbara.
