My most current appointment was very specific, but your office took the liberty of adding additional health items to the list of reasons I was being seen by the doctor during my appointment. (ie,,,pap, flu vaccine, pneumonia vaccine...) It frustrated and confused me when the medical assistant started listing off the other reasons. I had to take extra time to explain why I was seeing the doctor, and that I'd call the office to make appointments for the other reasons soon.

Waited for 30 plus minutes before seeing provider. Clinic needs to communicate when the provider has not arrived.

I will probably be switching doctors offices. I waited 25 minutes for my doctor and last time I saw her I waited over an hour. I don't think I've ever had a good experience with this doctors office.

The provider was late to my appointment which was scheduled at 8:25 am and she arrived at approximately 9:15am. The appointment was rushed, but since I am knowledgeable about my condition being rushed was okay. The outcome would differ for less knowledgeable patients that require more time. Overall, appointment was okay.

The doctor and her staff were very friendly and helpful. They all listened to all what I have to say regarding my health issues. I will definitely recommend her office to all my family and friends.

I waited in the exam room for over half an hour past my appointment time and did appreciate a knock on the door letting me know the doctor would be there as quickly as possible. The visit felt rushed, I didn't feel like I could bother the doctor with questions I had prepared because she was late and rushing through things. I've had other appointments with her and find her to be incredibly kind and well-intentioned but increasingly behind schedule and hurrying through our visit. I come to appointments prepared with questions so I can make efficient use of everyone's time and I never feel like I am "allowed" to ask them. Now I'm left with questions that are important to me and wondering how to get them answered.

I would continue to recommend giving providers more time to have conversations rather than feeling rushed.

Dr. Tarrazona-Yu is fine. I suspect that Legacy over schedules all GP's in such a way that the individual doctor doesn't really have time/space to connect w/patients. Bad on you all!

I waited for over an hour after getting to the appointment. I do not blame Dr. Tarrazona-Yu for this -- in fact, she was very apologetic, and told me that she was the only provider there ( because other providers had called out sick). I feel that it is a systems issue that I was not notified by phone that she would be running over an hour late. I would have appropriately cominto my appointment an hour later, if this were the case. Personally, I felt like Legacy did not care about The importance of my personal time.

I like Dr YU this was my first time meeting with her. She's Very thorough and I need that in a doctor with all the stuff going on with me we just didn't have enough time. Nice and pleasant I am impressed. Because before I came to this clinic I was afraid that I would Not have a doctor as good as my doctor I had before I came here. I believe we will get along Just fine. you have a blessed weekend

I scheduled this appointment because I was in pain almost daily. I reached out to other doctors first because I haven't always feel the most heard in my past appointments with Dr Tarrazona-Yu. They directed me to my primary care physician and I went hoping for a different outcome this time. However, instead of actually addressing the problem, she spent the entire appointment lecturing me about using online programs for mental health care. I sat there crying out of pure frustration because I just wanted someone to help me with the pain that's been affecting my life for months. Instead, I got a lecture, and was sent away to schedule an appointment for a couple tests. My original concern was hardly addressed at all. I want to be treated like a person, not a checklist.

I was not and am still not clear about what to ask for when when I call for an appointment for a check up visit where I can talk to the provider.I was quite disturbed when I received the After Visit Summary to see the "Order" to STOP taking herbal drugs. The doctor didn't discuss this with me at this visit nor give any reasons why I should stop these.

The best Dr I've ever had. When she finishes answers questions about my reason for the visit, she always ask is there anything else I can help you with? I love that, as there is usually some little issue I need answers to and that give me the opportunity to open up. She is the best!

The provider ignored my concerns and questions. I did not receive the care I was in need of. My concerns were brushed off as she said I think this is temporary when I explained ive been dealing woth this for years. She ignored my requests for an mri. She just wanted to get rid of me and refer me to other people. I left the office in tears and feeling hopeless. She made it very clear she had no interest in helping me and that my presence was an inconvenience to her.

All she does is make prescriptions, sometimes I think that's just easier for her. Is she really concern or is it a kickback in her pocket

I think the long wait times at her office and for my x-ray may be related to a backlog of patients seeking in person care. Many people may have put off in person services until recently.

In MyChart the appointment said it was an office visit and when I got there they were expecting a virtual visit, which caused confusion and longer wait times.

The nurse that seen me was rude and standoffish and if she didn't want to be there. Like she was mad that I came to my appointment. My doctor is always nice and understanding.

Dr. Yu is very respectful. She does not seem to judge me for my mental health issues. She does not seem to stigmatize which I appreciate! Her current MA does NOT come across friendly OR very engaged.
