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.

was genuinely interested in my health. BP appeared to be unusually low. BP was retaken at end of appt to ensure no issues even though I felt fine. Reviewed my lab results with me and recommended changes as appropriate. Appreciate that she evaluates the patient from a wholistic view; and doesn't treat automatically with prescriptions.

I waited 20 minutes past my appointment time in the waiting room because the receptionist forgot to check me in. Then I was brought to a room and my vitals checked. The nurse said the Dr was not busy and would be in in a few minutes. Another 15 minutes passed and they moved me to another room to wait another 15 minutes before the doctor came in. I was given a sample of an insulin pen and nobody showed me how to use it and they did not give me pen needles either, so I couldn't use the insulin.

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.
