Dr. Ly is awesome - very attentive, caring, communicates clearly, and seems genuinely interested in any issues. I hadn't seen a doctor in years because of not so caring experiences and Dr. Ly put faith and comfort back into my own attention to my health.

To my pain specialist clerks and nurses; they have claimed to call me on my phone for a doctor home call visit ' but I never received that call.. I have waited for an hour, and they say I missed the call. But I don't think they called.. Their phone number was never recorded on my phone. That has happened twice. Now, I have to go in person to visit my doctor.

As he always does, Dr. Ly prepared for my visit and came with an appropriate agenda. He asked me to state my concerns and questions first and responded to them before he stated his. He went progressively through his concerns, explained himself clearly and thoroughly, and gave me opportunity to ask questions. He gave me positive options for moving forward and allowed me to make my own decisions, now that I had good information on which to do so. He gave me a schedule for reporting back on how things develop. He spent an entire hour with me. I cannot imagine there could be a better doctor than he. I feel very confident in his care. He gives me most positive ways to improve my health.

Parking facility machine was not working, Parking facility I go into was full except for disabled parking an 1 narrow one. The receptionist should have offered to stamp the ticket while I was being checked in for my visit. I would have had to pay $63.40 for parking (less than 1.5 hours) had not the assistant not opened the gate.
