Ratings for Dr. Jelena Vukicevic
My daughter, who is now 17, has been going to Dr. V since she was 1 year old, when we moved to the bay area from Hong Kong. A total of 16 years! We have both simply loved her! She is both very competent and really cares for her patients and truly gets to know them. She listens well to your issues and always makes the time to return calls, etc. She is a parent herself and this helps me relate to her even more. She has that natural empathy that comes when a doctor has both the competence as well as the human element in her approach to medicine. I so respect that!
Dr. V is very patient with children. She makes it fun for the child and explains very well. She is always willing to help and have you come in. The only thing I personally don't like is the reception desk staff. They can be impolite and arrogant. But other than that, Dr. V is one of the best pediatricians i know, and I would recommend her to everyone. :)
Dr.Vukicevic asks, listens, explains and suggests. Very personable and charming with kids. Honest. She does know everything about little people. My kids trust her. She calls home to check on them when concerned. Wish I myself had a doctor like that.
Dr V is very good. I do not like when Dr V asks me to talk her nurses who she thinks are very good. Nurses are not good and they give vague answers. I do not like the staff as they are rude. Plus this whole medical group has become extremely money minded. They charge for everything. Now if you call after hour, you pay additional fees. When are these private practitioners going to realize that they have plenty of money and should stop extorting money from patients.
We've been using Dr. V for 13 years now; we have four girls. Nothing but good things to say about her. If you are looking for a doctor for your child and can get in to her practice, do it! She won't let things slip through--we joke around that if Dr. V isn't worried about something then we know we don't have to be worried about it, because she is almost always way more concerned than us about problems. The only serious issue we've had was a child with Celiac Disease, and the diagnosis was difficult, a shared learning experience for all of us. Ideally she would have nailed that sooner, but that was a strange case and it worked out okay.
This doctor is really wonderful. She returns calls promptly and can always squeeze your appointment in when needed. She is also very knowledgeable and personable. Two other friends of ours are taking their kids to Dr V and they are impressed as well.
