Dr Ly is very thorough and very confident. He quickly looks up previous visits and has all the information he needs at the tip of his fingers and has an amazing command of my history. He is also very empathetic and very congenial. He actually provided a referral to a hand specialist and before I left the office got me an appointment with that specialist for the very next day.He is an amazing doctor and a great human being.

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.

As usual a productive and helpful visit. Dr Ly had a resident working with him - which was fine.Dr Ly is amazing! I feel truly heard and respected.As a side note - parking garage is very tight, crowded. Always stressful to find a spot.

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.

Having Dr. Ly is probably the easiest primary physician I've ever had in my 7 plus decades. He is extremely pleasant, intelligent and uses the technology in a very non-intrusive and complimentary manner. He is superb bedside manners and always in a pleasant and engaging mood. I will and have recommended Dr. Ly to friends.

Dr. Ly recommended that I have an infected cyst removed by Legacy clinic surgery. The referral was erroneously sent to hospital surgery resulting in a 8 day delay in getting the initial interview with the surgeon. A minor problem but the delay created some minor stress for me. This was not Dr. Ly's fault as his referral clearly stated the Legacy clinic surgery. Not sure what really happened... a glitch.

The medical person who checked me in, took vitals and reviewed with me my current drugs etc setting things up before the doctor came in - she was remarkable. Her kind words & sense of humor put me at ease. She did my EKG. The doctor made connections with the & X-ray that allowed me to get everything done in 1 visit - end of day.
