18/10/13 1 1 1 1 The negative comments are pretty accurate and I want to add my own personal experience. all she ever asks are personal questions not relevant to the reason why I am there to begin with - highly unprofessional. I agree that the only reason why she is still practising is because there is a shortage of doctors and popularity w/filipinos, otherwise she is highly unqualified for this profession. I inquired about pap smears because there was a big sign in her office. she seemed reluctant to even perform it since she gave me a phone number and website for which I should contact to get that done. also, she said that unless I have a boyfriend or that I am sexually active that only then I should get a pap smear. I've been having sex since my teens which is almost 30 years, I think that qualifies! whether or not i have a boyfriend does not mean i am not having sex, rather I requested to have a pap smear which clearly she did not want to do in the first place. why not say that instead?  Respond

11/01/12 3 3 1 1 this woman is horrible. she had me come in for a follow up appointment after having some tests done, and then scolded me for not coming in sooner. i told her that i had no symptoms, and she said 'yes you did! you told me you did when you were last here!' not sure if she was thinking of another patient or not, but she definitely was trying to put words in my mouth, which i do not appreciate. never seeing her again.  Respond

24/03/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Milambiling has been my family doctor for years, and I haven't had a single problem! As a doctor, she'll listen to all of your problems, and offer her own helpful advice, knowledge and expertise... and as an individual she's friendly and compassionate. Her and her husband definitely go out of the way to accommodate their patients! It's always a pleasure seeing her, and definitely will recommend her to anyone!  Respond

13/12/10 1 1 1 1 I waited over an hour from my scheduled appointment just to get called in. I only go to her because my family has been going to them (both) forever. She is underqualified as she has no clue what she talks about - ecommends taking a tylenol for anxiety? I only go to her for the occasional appt. but I will be trying to look for a new doctor although it is difficult to find in this day and age. That must be the reason she is still in the medicine business, the healthcare's desparation to retain doctors, ANY doctor! At every appointment, she repeteadly asks me personal questions not relevant to my reason to visit. I find this unprofessional and not only that, she never remembers anything since it's always the same questions. Very unprofessional.  Respond

20/07/10 1 1 2 1 Dr. Ligaya just asked questions about my life and not about how I feel. I'd rather go to walk in clinic or emergency than to see again. Plus the receptionist is the worst ever!  Respond

01/05/10 1 1 1 1 I've been going to Dr. Milambiilng for a couple of years, because my original family doc. is hard to book. Even when making appointments, you have to wait at least 30 minutes 'til you get called in. The below reviews are disgustingly accurate. She doesn't listen and she doesn't seem to know anything. Poor woman is very undereducated. As a university student, I do not understand how she has her license. I'm sure my family goes to her because she's popular within the Filipino community, but it all seems like bias -- there's no strength in her knowledge. I've only seen her husband twice, so I can't judge him, but this woman is definitely overrated in her profession.  Respond

08/12/09 2 1 1 1 dr. milambiling needs to improve on understanding her patients and not being judgemental. from my experience she needs to learn to have more patience and practice professionalism. I base this on personal experience with her.  Respond

16/03/09 2 1 3 1 I no longer see any of the Milambilings. I don't have a problem with Dr. E. Milambiling, but Doctora Ligaya I do. My husband & I were trying to conceive and had been seeing a fertility specialist. I took a home pregnancy test and it was positive, I took 3. Went in to see Dr. Ligaya Milambiling and the urine test turned out negative. I insisted that she give me a blood test. She talked to me on the phone and told me straight out, Ining don't force yourself to be pregnant because you are not. I told her I took several home test. So she she said just to ease my mind that she would order blood tests. That was on a Friday afternoon. Monday morning no call yet, so I called the office. The receptionist at the time, didn't really want to talk to me anymore, so Dr. Ligaya Milambiling spoke with me and told me I was indeed pregnant. No sorry no congratulations, just told me I was and that I should see her for prenatal care. I just hung up and didn't see her ever.  Respond

04/02/09 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Milambiling all my life and have no plans of changing doctors! She is extremely patient, kind, and understanding....and answers all questions clearly and concisely! She makes sure you understand completely before ending the appointment. There is reason why her office is always packed, its because she is one of the best!!!  Respond

20/01/09 4 4 5 5 She is a fantastic physician, and I trust no one else. She will sit with you after you're appointment and answer any questions you have no matter how much time it takes. She never rushes and she makes you feel extremely comfortable. Yes, there is some waiting involved...but she gives each and everyone the same amoutn of attendtion and care!  Respond

18/08/08 1 1 2 2 I've been seeing this doctor for a few years now, and the only reason why I continue to do so is because most of the family doctors I've called who have very good ratings are either retiring or just not taking anymore new patients. This woman is horrible. And yes, she does tell you "it will eventually go away...it's nothing serious...take some tylenol and call back here if you feel anything more..." She is not good, would never recommend her to anyone I know, and I cannot wait to find a REAL doctor. Oh and they never take you in when they say they will! I'll call in for an appointment, the receptionist will tell me to come in at 3pm and I won't be seen until 530pm. Seriously, everything about that practice is wrong.  Respond

30/05/08 2 2 1 1 This doctor doesn't know what she is talking about yet does not listen to you. She easily dismiss your concern and tell you that's either normal or there's nothing you can do about it. it's frustrating to deal with her everytime. Yes, she does refer you to specialist if you insist and are able to convince her. But to refer you to the right person is another matter.  Respond

20/05/08 1 1 1 1 I too, waited more than 45 minutes when i booked an appointment with her. I didnt have a very good experience with her husband, so i decided to go and see her about my irregularity as a woman. I finally went in to see her, and all she did was ask me questions. She sent me for an ultrasound, and didnt hear anything from them after. i was left in the dark for a couple of months. i then called their office, and asked about the results. they didnt even know what i was talking about...they said they will call me back, but never did. I finally decided that i have had enough of the Milambilings. I dont even know how they can keep their practice! And their kids are rotten snobs...they would come in the office like spoiled brats who don't know how to even smile when they're being smiled at. Rude girls! i hate that place!  Respond

10/03/08 2 3 2 3 This doctor wasn't helpful at all; I had wanted her to prescribe me birth control since she had most of my medical records and she refused. She misdirected me to go to the Women's Clinic and they couldn't help me and when I got it from another doctor and saw her again she said she can't check me anymore and wants nothing to do with my birth control. I thought doctors weren't suppose to be bias when it came to that stuff? That's just bad practice!  Respond

03/07/07 2 2 1 1 This MD didn't impress me one bit!! She was substandard. I went for my physical and instead of reviewing all the systems, she asked me what I wanted done. I wanted a breakdown of my cholesterol so I could know how I was doing in that area and she said it wasn't necessary. I swtiched MDs and was blown away by how throughough a good MD could be.....beware of this one!!!  Respond

15/04/07 4 1 1 i dont like her.I had previous concerns w/ gall stones. When I went to see her all I told her was everytime I drank my birth control pills the right hand side of my stomach hurts and she says it shouldn't have an affect of hurting the stomach. so not really knowing the medical world i just went along with it and finally just went to a walk in clinic. There was a Dr. there but I forgot his name at least he took the time to further check the complaint I had and then got referred to a specialist which then end up taking my gallstone out and regarding some birth control pills it does affect it.I have more previous issues with her but finally I just decided to look for another Dr.  Respond

01/03/07 5 5 5 Extremely personable and has excellent listening skills. I found my experience the doctor to be quite valuable and she was able to give very good advice on how to take care of myself. She's the best doctor I've had so far and I intend to recommend my family to her.  Respond

10/02/07 4 3 2 She's a great doctor but not very knowledgeable. My mom went there when she was having chest pains. She has other concerns too and asked Dr. Milambiling what seems to be the problem and if that was related to her ulcer (she had an ulcer). Dr. Milambiling told her that she will go to the bathroom and then she came back with an answer. Then my mom asked another question again then the Dr said that she needs to go to the bathroom again. Then my mom caught her asking her husband, who is also a doctor on what she should tell my mom. So my mom figured out that she uses the bathroom as an excuse to ask her husband. That didn't happened once and my grandma experienced the same situation. too  Respond
