09/25/2019
I felt like the care provider talked more than listened. She did not know the last time I visited or the results of my blood tests from previously. When I asked her what I would be tested for, she referred to a packet she gave me by telling me to look myself with no explanation. When I got my results back, they tested for stuff that I was not expecting and not for stuff I was expecting.

07/21/2019
I felt that Dr. Minosa was thorough with her examination. Her staff did not relate all of the information I needed, so I was not prepared for my follow-up visit.
40

07/14/2019
I personally felt brushed off by the provider. In her defense, I was triggered by the lack of concern and lashed out and could be considered disrespectful but the nurse was above and beyond caring and nice to me.

she's nice & very informative person

07/03/2019
she was being really rude last time, it seems as thought every time my boyfriend is with me she becomes rude and cold. If you're a doctor you should be nice and caring no matter who is in the room, I had a heart related issue and with every response she was being rude.

I am very pleased with the care I received from the Facey Team.
20

06/05/2019
I feel like the Dr. did not listen to my concerns and was very vague on her answers. I feel like the provider wasn't concerned about my concerns and made it seem like it was not a big deal for what I know my body to be abnormal. I was not given instructions of follow up appointment not any medication that was prescribed. I will definitely change providers. Her statements without concern was somewhat discouraging to go to a provider. Fortunately I am a nurse and come across surgeons who genuinely care about their patients and their concerns so I know this was below standard of care.
100

06/03/2019
very good customer service.

06/03/2019
Very empathetic and knowledgeable.

05/29/2019
I went in for a gyno referral but was then told my doctor could just do the gyno appointment for me, that day, without a need to schedule an appointment with someone else on another day. I was so thrilled!! And my refill was scheduled immediately so I was very relieved and stress-free.
100

05/22/2019
She's very nice and so concerned on my health status
90

05/21/2019
This is the first time I have seen Dr. Minosa in a very long while. In the past two years, my visits have been with other doctors because Dr. Minosa was 'busy.' I switched back [...] this month and voila! I am seen right away by my primary (of course the annual physical will have to wait two months). Dr. Minosa listened to me concerning the one thing I came for (a follow-up on an issue that occurred in February and is still unresolved) and she referred me to a specialist; we did not talk about the other issues, as they will be discussed at my physical in June.) So she listened, and she did exactly what had to be done. Had I received better information in February, I would have made a follow-up appointment sooner, since part of her comment was that the issue had moved past the point that she could help, and the situation may be trickier to fix. [...]

05/21/2019
Dr. Minosa (my primary) and Dr. [...] (my gynecologist) are fantastic doctors who really provide professional and excellent care. I'm grateful to have access through insurance to Facey Medial Group. They provide topnotch care all around. Thank you.

Minosa and the entire team at Facey in Burbank are just magical. I feel important and taken care of in their hands. I appreciate that they call me when I'm due to come in for check-ins on my blood pressure to make sure all is going well, and they're such a nice team. Really great people and I'm so grateful for them. It's truely made my life better. I've referred a good friend to Facey recently and she also loves it! Trying to get my fiance to Facey too. [...]

04/23/2019
I thought the doctor was judgmental
30

04/23/2019
I don't have complete confidence in my provider, based on the two in-person interactions we have had. I feel I want to give her one more try before I look into finding another provider that I feel more confident in and comfortable with.
30

04/22/2019
I will not return to see this doctor. She was rushed, not particularly friendly and I didn't feel comfortable. she did what she needed to so I was happy with that.
