Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

I have been dealing with a condition and I feel like all I get is testing and medication but no improvement. When I initially saw my provider she said that in 6 months I should be back to normal and we are inching into a year and no real improvement. When I tell her if there is anything else I could do to help my situation she says no.

I had had blood work completed several months before this latest appointment and even with alarming numbers from the blood work there was no attempt to contact me. Once I arrived for this most recent appointment Dr. Naqi asked if I was there for the bloodwork results and provided no explanation why the office never called upon receipt of my bloodwork, which revealed alarming numbers and the need for medication adjustment. I had alerted Dr Naqi that I have been seeing several other doctors who have run other blood tests and she was demanding I send those to her. I should ask the question as to why she wouldn't order those labs, but I suppose it wouldn't matter since she doesn't take the time to review and follow up on results anyways. She told me should would follow up the following Monday for these new results, again I never received a call. This office is so overcrowded, the wait is outrageous and the Doctor's ability to provide information and descriptions as to what course of treatment she is prescribing leaves a lot to be desired. As patients are now taking a more active role in our healthcare and asking for explanations for prescribed courses of treatment Dr Naqi should be accommodating a discussion instead of just looking at a few numbers, asking a couple of questions and prescribing drugs. I had let Dr. Naqi know I had stopped taking my medicine after I had to read and interpret my own lab results (the ones she never followed up on from months prior) and she became very judgmental. After she left the room she must has told her nursing staff about the interaction because when the nurse came back in the room she practically tossed new lab papers at me and walked out. I sure do love being judged when I go to an overcrowded and poorly performing doctor. Dr. Naqi may have gone to the best medical schools and had the best medical training, but with the limited time she has spent with me as a patient and how she doesn't seem to have time to answer questions when I want to be able to partner in decisions about my health it makes me want to change providers. I have already made an appointment with a concierge endocrinologist who practices in the South Bay area and plan to seek medical treatment elsewhere. With excellent PPO insurance and the ability to pay out of pocket if needed, I would never recommend anyone to Dr Naqi. I do genuinely feel sad for individuals who don't have the ability to see other doctors and don't know much better interactive medical care is available to them. I really hope Providence evaluates how care takes place in your doctor's offices because a patient should not feel like they only have a couple of minutes to meet with a doctor with no time to ask questions and become educated so they can have say in the course of treatment.

Dr Lubna Naqi is the reason I have chosen to remain in California, under her care. All of the staff (from telephone operator, appt, front desk, nurses, each one goes out of their way to insure patient care. They are helpful, kind, and gracious. I highly recommend Dr. Naqi and each person at that facility as they are all assets to your fine team.

person drawing blood needs practice. I was bruised for a week. I have not received results yet. I also received papers in the mail to fill out about what insurance I have and to sign a release for one of the tests with no note and no return envelope. when I checked in, my insurance information was verified. I also gave a list of my current prescriptions and supplements to input for my records. the copy given to me did not remove items not on my list and also input the information incorrectly. [...]

Have a hard time getting a respond from my chart message and takes a long time for a request to take action. So my chart doesn't really help if you have concern , better to call directly. My chart only help in checking your blood work results . Have to call several times to take care of the issues . Very frustrating !

I don't really feel she listened to all of my concerns, nor did she test me for all the things she said. She never called to follow up on my test results, only posted them on my chart so I could log in and see them. Wanted me to wait 6 weeks before discussing them personally with her. And she told me I had to go to my primary care doctor if I wanted to get prescriptions based on my results. She would not help me. I feel like she only heard what she wanted to hear but not what I was really saying or my concerns.
