I had a great experience with Dr. Valentine!

March 18, 2016

My experience with Dr. Valentine was very positive. He listened well and explained things well. He understood my condition and was concerned that the treatment plan was agreeable to me. I was never sure why the other doctor came in, though, and would have liked an explanation.

March 07, 2016

Good experience once I got over how mad I was about the lack of communication around the wait.

February 03, 2016

My experiences with all the staff were great. Everyone (esp, pharmacist and GI fellow) was very thorough with history questions. I got physically examined, both for GI/UC symptoms and for swollen joints and inflammation symptoms, which I appreciated. Dr. Valentine was very friendly, answered all my questions, and showed great concern for my well being.

February 01, 2016

Dr. scheduled me for a follow up visit - but I'm not really sure why.

January 12, 2016

Great doctor

January 11, 2016

Thank you for seeing me past my appointment time due to an accident on the freeway.

November 29, 2015

very well informed, makes careful decisions, certainly skilled and experienced in his field. I have a lot of confidence in him as my physician.

October 29, 2015

I waited 32 minutes after check-in just to sit in my room for 15 minutes before going into procedure. Not pleased with that.

September 13, 2015

seriously the best GI we have ever had. took the time to know all medical history. did not discount "mother's intuition" Was not condescending, arrogant or disrespectful in any way shape or form. was informed far beyond standard GI box answers. open to learning. love love love this doc!!!

September 03, 2015

Tauna, penny and Alex were awesome. Lobbed them. So was Dr Valentine.

August 20, 2015

Had to wait nearly one hour.

August 10, 2015

John Valentine is among the finest physicians I have ever known. I am a physician myself, so I know a great deal of them!

July 31, 2015

Dr. Valentine could be the best doctor I have met with regard to my condition and disease.

Exceptional patient experience. Dr. Valentine is the best IBD physician who has ever taken care of me in my 43 years with Crohn's disease.

January 22, 2015

I do not feel rushed in exam room. Dr. Valentine and his PA spend however much time is needed to take care of me. They are both very thorough, and take the time to help me understand our treatment plan, and how to decipher the markers in my blood labs. It has all been a very positive experience.

November 21, 2014

I love Dr. Valentine. He provides excellent care and I have referred him many times to family and friends. He is very knowledgeable and kind.

Excellent interaction.

July 14, 2014

Really enjoyed the visit with Dr. Valentine and the third year fellow Jessica (forget her last name). Both very considerate and willing to discuss the diagnosis and treatment options. Felt like my care was in good hands and that follow-up would happen and that they were invested in my care.

June 15, 2014

Very professional and thorough. Also very knowledgeable in his expertise.

June 03, 2014

March 10, 2014

very good

February 08, 2014

he is really good.

January 27, 2014

Dr. Valentine spent more time with me than I could have hoped for. He was very thorough to make sure all my health information had been input correctly. He even found a lab test that had been ordered incorrectly and reordered the one that would be right for my condition. I am confident in Dr. Valentine's knowledge and feel he will give me the care that I need.

January 06, 2014

Doctor was very thorough.

June 26, 2012

i have already referred Dr. Valentine to a colleague with whom I work.

May 04, 2012

This was my first visit and I am fully confident in Dr.Valentine.

May 01, 2012

On the first visit with Dr. Valentine there was a cancellation so he spent over an hour with my wife and I discussing my condition, past present and future. It had been years since a physician spent more than ten or fifteen minutes in a consult and appeared considerate and competent.
