May 27, 2016

I show up five minutes early, along wait to get in the room. The nurse was slow get the basic out of the way. The said that the doctor was running late and she would be here soon. the nurse never came back to inform me of the doctor be late. I seat there over over 30 minutes waiting. When the doctor came in she said sorry I'm run late ( Like it not a big deal about my time) She spent less than ten minutes going over my chart, said she had to hurry. she ordered the blood work, and left. And an other 15 for that work. start to finish was 1 1/2 hours of my time, and I am not happy with the service I got. I might look for a other doctor, Most doctor in other areas that I see are GREAT.

May 26, 2016

Provider did not remember why the follow up with lab test, I had to remind her about the prior lab results and the reason why. I would assume that prior notes should be referenced or reviewed prior to the follow up visit and or physician coming into room, not attempting to view upon entering the visit.

May 22, 2016

There's a reason I followed her from private practice.

May 14, 2016

Dr. Canga-Siao is always perfectly kind and thorough. She is a great listener and responds with patience, kindness and complete clarity. She is superb!

May 11, 2016

feel a real disconnect with care provider...we had to tell her why we were there and she told us to come back in 3 mths for an AIC check...never heard back about the blood test results and what to expect next or any changes due to the results. My mom is a DNR so I my feeling is that is how she is treated....disconnected. Wish there was more care and concern.

April 29, 2016

Fortunately I am moving soon and will not have to deal with this office again

April 29, 2016

She sometimes does not listen to what I am trying to tell her and goes on with her business.

April 28, 2016

As with previous visit, care provider was more concerned with secondary health issue when what I needed was not provided.

April 25, 2016

I was not allowed to talk about issues because it was ONLY a physical. now I have to wait another month to get in to see her to talk about what is concerning me

April 23, 2016

plesant

April 17, 2016

Dr. Canga-Siao provided great care, she went though all the medicines with me, and wrote down the details for me to understand and remember. Great service.

April 14, 2016

Dr. Cynthia Canga-Siao is a wonderful Dr. She is very friendly, caring, and very thorough. I have recommended her to others.

April 13, 2016

I wanted to talk about my big problem with incontinence and give her a little history, but she wasn't interested.

April 11, 2016

Dr Canga Siao is wonderful. She is very thorough and I know she will do everything required to figure out what's wrong and help me feel better. I was sick for a while and saw lots of different doctors, but when I was able to get in to see her, it was such a relief because she does such a good job of really examining everything and trying to figure out what's wrong. I appreciate her so much.

April 05, 2016

They were behind schedule and seem to be rushing.

April 05, 2016

Dr. Cynthia is so thorough. She explained my labs and broke them done for me. She helped me to understand the values and I left with a better knowledge of what I needed to do.

April 01, 2016

I felt Dr.Cynthia was rushed, did not listen to me and ordered a medication for a possible urinary infection prior to me giving a sample. I returned the medicine the next day when I was told the urinary test was okay. I was surprised that she did not wait until the test was confirmed. The Pharmacist was helpful and refunded my $'s

March 26, 2016

This was my very first visit with Dr. Cynthia and I was so impressed. She has a firm handshake and was so thorough. I was a little nervous a first seeing a new doctor but she put me right at ease and really listened to my concerns.

March 07, 2016

Dr Canga-Siao is an excellent Doctor. She is very thorough, listens with caring, and knowledgeable

March 05, 2016

I LOVE Dr Cynthia! She is very thorough and genuinely concerned about her patients. She asks questions and listens to my answers to find a treatment that will best suit me. She isn't quick to prescribe a "magic pill". I'm so pleased with her and I recommend her to all my family and friends.

March 01, 2016

My doctor and her team made my visit very convenient, they concerned my issues, explained and addressed all questions. The instructions for my medications, medical issues and followup, were very clear for my understanding.

February 24, 2016

excellant

February 22, 2016

Excellent Doctor.

February 20, 2016

We love Dr. "Cynthia" and would follow her anywhere. She is a keeper.

February 20, 2016

I came to my appointment with a bit of apprehension because I have a few medical issues going on. Dr. Canga-Siao was very focused with full attention to even the smallest details, providing me a lot of reassurance. There are a lot of physicians out there who act hurried, uninterested in the patient, but Dr. Canga-Siao has NEVER been that way. I have been her patient for many years and she has treated some serious condition in me with complete success.

February 19, 2016

Good

February 18, 2016

Dr. Canga-Saio is the best!

February 15, 2016

Because she was late, I felt the care provider was rushed and I had to keep correcting her memory about my problems.

February 15, 2016

My doctor is the best and demonstrate the care for preventive care that I am looking for in a doctor

February 09, 2016

The doctor talks to me (the daughter) rather than the patient, I know she is hard of hearing but it is her visit. She feels excluded in her care.

February 07, 2016

Dr. Cynthia is excellent, my only problem is she is often booked for over a week ahead.

January 28, 2016

Felt rushed with her and unable to express all my concerns.

January 25, 2016

She always explains well and asks for questions then has everything printed out. On the print out it says if anything is incorrect please notify us. I have recommended her, I have a good friend that lives in West Jordan that comes to Centerville Clinic to see her, also just told another friend about her. It is so nice to have a female doctor.

January 13, 2016

Very comfortable experience

January 12, 2016

so impressed with Dr. Cynthia....was concerned when Dr. Pham left, but feel that I am in good hands, and I appreciate it!!!

January 11, 2016

Dr. Canga-Ciao is a great doctor. At times she seems to be in a hurry and visits sometimes feel rushed. I understand she sees a lot of patients and so I don't fault her for that. I like to get straight to the point and so most of the time, getting in and getting out is fine with me but it also does not give me time to process what I need to explain to her about my visit or I may was away and forget to tell or ask her something.

January 11, 2016

This is a new doctor for me, as Marian Pham retired. Loved her and did not want a new doctor. I saw Dr. Campbell x 2 and did not like him for myself at all. Dr. Cynthia seems very vested in doing a good job and listened well to me, showing concern for my husband, as well. We were both impressed and pleased that she listened and agreed to not set too many goals for a person of my age and many degenerative, progressisve problems.

January 10, 2016

The care provider was beyond anything; she was very knowledgeable about my concerns and took the time to make me feel comfortable and explained any concerns i had. I couldn't have ask for a better experience with a care provider.

January 09, 2016

Doctor was forgetful, didn't read medical chart about history, was very tired and anxious to finish up.

January 09, 2016

New doctor for me but I find her very helpful and thorough.

January 07, 2016

This is the second time I have had to wait extended minutes for Dr. Canga-Siao. I scheduled my appointment early in the morning this time, hoping that she wouldn't be late again. I was disappointed, and, again there was no explanation or expression of sympathy for my having to wait. Her manner is extremely brusque and non-friendly. I sincerely miss Dr. Pham.

January 06, 2016

Dr. Cynthia is friendly and explains everything.

December 27, 2015

I've always felt that Dr. Cynthia was a caring and thorough doctor.

December 13, 2015

I am impressed with Dr Canga-Siao, and consider her a very dedicated and thorough doctor

December 12, 2015

Dr Canga-Siao is the best doctor ever. She is very thorough, remembers my past history, follows up with me, and stays on top of my health needs.

December 10, 2015

I already recommended her

December 06, 2015

She seemed very uncaring and cold until she asked me too fill out the survey. I need to feel a connection with a doctor if I am going to trust her and I don't feel that with this doctor. I feel pretty confident in her abilities as a doctor but the fact that she doesn't really care about me makes me not want to return.

December 02, 2015

Dr. Cynthia took a lot of time with me. The only issue is we covered a great deal of after care and I got lost on how to take a blood pressure reading at home. I am sure it is my fault that I didn't ask her to be more clear on the instructions. I think I was overwhelmed a little. I will do better in the future.

December 01, 2015

GOOD

December 01, 2015

good

November 30, 2015

good

November 30, 2015

I was disappointed in Dr. Cynthia when it came to answering my questions and involving me in the decisions with moving forward. I wish she would have spent more time listening instead of talking. It seemed that she was hurrying to get to the next pt. or task. I will probably be selecting another primary care provider.

November 28, 2015

Confidence in a care provider is built over time. Since I am fairly new to the clinic, and had never seen this provider before, I don't think it is fair to answer those types of questions.

November 27, 2015

I have recommended this physician to several of my fiends.

November 27, 2015

Excellent

November 26, 2015

Dr. Canga-Siao is profoundly caring, patient and reassuring. She listens to my questions or concerns and answers them calmly and thoroughly, with great warmth and kindness. She is the definitive model for all doctors to follow. Her competence and professionalism is supremely excellent.

November 26, 2015

It is hard to realize that you are not invincible and accept the things you don't want to hear.

November 25, 2015

Dr. Canga-Sioa is very capable and always show a deep concern for my health

November 25, 2015

Was very satisfied

November 24, 2015

Dr. Cynthia Canga-Siao has always been my care provider. She is very detailed and competent and knows exactly what shes doing. She always wants to make sure of her treatments, and tries to cover every possible treatment to cure an ailment.

November 24, 2015

Have already recoccmended friend to Doctor Cynthia Canga Saio. His Doctor is going to retire in April

November 24, 2015

Dr. Canga-Siao is very caring and patient. She went through all my questions and explained the instructions of the each medications.

November 23, 2015

I followed the good doctor to you.

November 23, 2015

Dr. Conga-Siao was pleasant, knowledgable and thorough. I will definitely recommnend her and the U of U Health facility as the place to go for health care. In fact, I've already recommended her to two people.

November 16, 2015

Very competent, good people skills, thorough. All i could hope for in my Doctor.

November 16, 2015

Dr. Siao has been my provider eversince. She has done a good job so far, as far as taking care of my health is concerned.

November 15, 2015

New care provider. I have recently had care with a doctor at IHC. Came back to U of U Health because the follow up and interaction with other care providers is so much better. Love the print outs with the information I need to go forward. Can't always remember everything. Thanks for the Centerville Clinic, it is close and so helpful. I enjoy working with each of my caregivers that are associated with the U of U Health.

November 14, 2015

No complaints

November 13, 2015

Great experience.

November 12, 2015

A great doctor.

November 10, 2015

Everything was very nice and everybody tried to help.Thank you very much.

November 09, 2015

My first visit with Dr, Cynthia. She reminded me a lot of my previous Doctor Pham. When Dr. Pham retired my wife and I were saddened because we greatly valued her competence and high quality of care. We are so happy we found Dr. Cynthia. She is highly competent, caring and very thorough. We are confident that she will provide us the highest quality of care. Thank you Dr. Cynthia.

November 09, 2015

excellent experience, I will come back to the clinic and recommend family and friends

November 08, 2015

I understand the amount of time spent with a patient is controlled by the insurance company.

October 28, 2015

I wasn't impressed with her, she seemed rushed and wasn't listening to my concerns. She would ask me questions that I had just answered but since she wasn't focused on me, she asked the same thing. My PCP was out so I was scheduled with her due to an illness. Both her MA and the dr asked why I was seeing her and not my PCP. I felt unwelcomed and like a burden. Since I wasn't "her" patient, she didn't seem to care too much.

October 19, 2015

I'm going to try a different doctor at the clinic and if I can't find one I like I'll switch clinics. She didn't listen to my concerns. Was focused on getting the physical done. Most times I have gone to her, she has just referred me to other doctors. If she can't/won't treat me it would be nice to know before I take time off work.

October 09, 2015

The doctor didn't seem to care. I got what I needs only because I knew exactly what I wanted. She was not helpful. Very short and minimal.

October 05, 2015

After years with the old school doc, this was a pleasant refreshing, confidence boosting experience

October 05, 2015

The Doctor was knowledgeable/personable/professional and had great insight!

September 29, 2015

Dr. Canga-Siao is a perfect model of what a physician should be! She is warm, deeply interested in the patient, thorough and profoundly competent. She listens to my concerns or questions and takes the needed time to respond thoroughly. She is truly superlative in every respect!

September 27, 2015

She was okay, but was not the wise, mature, experienced GP I was looking for. Repeated herself multiple times as if by saying thing over again she was trying to cement in her mind what the medical path forward was supposed to be. No question about the fact that she cared and was trying hard. No question about her medical capabilities. For me, she just didn't have that "X" factor.

September 25, 2015

I have many co-morbidities and the Doctor was able to address all of them in an effective and complete manner-initiated all indicated referrals and reviewed my condition/labs/meds in full before I left.

September 18, 2015

I was seeing this doctor for the first time. I feel nervous when getting set up with new doctors. Even though it was stressful for me, I felt reassured that my doctor was going to meet my healthcare needs.

September 12, 2015

Dr. CANGA-SIA is excellent! Even during the time when she was operating her own clinic, she always sees to it that everything are properly explained and that I understood why I am having problem or experiencing such pain and sees to it that I understood my lab results results and the cause of l being prescribed such

September 07, 2015

Dr. Canga-Siao was wonderful. Firm handshake, friendly, knowledgeable. She was a breath of fresh air. FINALLY, I feel like I have a doctor who can help me with my issues!

September 05, 2015

I was seen for a possible sinus infection, and because I'm breastfeeding I scheduled an appointment to be seen by a doctor to get advice on medications safe to take while breastfeeding. I informed Dr Cynthia of this, and then she asked me what kind of medications I could take while breastfeeding. She was unsure if Augmenten was safe to take but rather than researching and finding out sent me to my children's pediatrician to ask her. She then suggested I pump 10 day's worth of breast milk before taking the antibiotic, which for me is impossible as I had gone through my reserve during the sickness. The other option was to "pump & dump" after taking the medication. I didn't feel like my question about medications safest to take while breastfeeding as answered or that the doctor cared to help me find out.

September 02, 2015

Dr. Canga-Siao was very helpful in scheduling appointments with other providers to help me begin a new health care system custom for me. Such as therapy, case worker, physical therapy and my medications.

August 30, 2015

It felt very rushed.

August 29, 2015

Staff very thorough and efficient.

August 28, 2015

The doctor does a good job. that is why I followed her here to the U of U

August 26, 2015

Seems like she just asks rhetorical questions in a way your to make an informed decision

August 24, 2015

My appointment, which was to establish care with a new doctor, took 1 hour. A lot of time in a busy schedule, I know. But, I do hope to establish a better rapport with Dr. Canga-Siao. I couldn't say whether I would recommend her or not until I had more visits. I like that she is having me plot my blood pressure at home rather than just taking the figures from that one visit.

August 11, 2015

I feel like I have to rush through my appointment through no fault of the physician. I know that she is limited on the time she can spend with each patient. More time should be given.

August 07, 2015

comfortable to speak with. seems knowledgeable

July 25, 2015

She was very abrupt in manner. she seemed rushed to get through the appointment. I was comfortable with her recommendations but did not feel much rapport with her as a doctor.

July 17, 2015

It was an initial visit so we didn't have anything to go on, but I felt like she is a good fit for my primary care dr.

July 14, 2015

Dr. Canga-Siao is the model of medical practice excellence! She is always very cheerful and pleasant, caring, attentive to details. Her professionalism and patient care is superlative!

June 27, 2015

Dr. Canga Siao is alway very pleasant, professional and informative. She takes the time to talk to you and explain conditions, status of lab results, etc. Was a patient before she came to University Healthcare and I followed her here because I really trust her.

June 22, 2015

I'm really hoping that Dr. Cynthia Canga-Saio will stay here. It was my first visit with her and she is very pleasant and competent. Only asking her to stay for about 30 years---

December 27, 2014

Her exam was very quick.

December 08, 2014

she is new to the clinic and seem to be more concerned on how to get the info in the computer then she was in talking with me. I am having to try to schedule another appt to see if i can get back on my meds for my anxiety because she wouldn't pay attention when i kept saying i was feeling a little anxious. Now i went the weekend and it has intensived and i now need to go in and see someone else.
