He's [Dr. Rinaudo] warm and engaging. He's also busy, and our case didn't require a ton of supervision, so, although we had the sense that he was monitoring our treatments, he outsourced the basic stuff to other members of the team. We really only saw him once. . .Be upfront and candid with him...He's a warm and easy to work with individual. Clinic runs like a machine, but is personal...
[UCSF is] Upper-crust, scientifically-up-to-date academic medical center. Unlike the rest of UCSF, runs well. Billing is a mess...Lovely. Well staffed, tons of people, and warm and easy-to-work-with staff...

Nice doctor who cared. Great, helpful, kind.
Paula was great, but there's still a lot you need to be on top of yourself. You have to be on top of your own prescriptions, otherwise nothing.
