Visit far better than I expected. I was a little hesitant when first scheduled a telehealth visit but I would now say I think I might prefer this type of visit for many of the medical visits I go to. There are still many times I believe I still need to see a physician in person but this was not one of those. It was nice to get the medical consultation I needed without leaving my home!

Telehealth did not work. Fortunately the doctor called and we had our appointment over the phone.

We didn't need to discuss medications. Follow-up care was discussed in the context of what to expect from a new CPAP machine.

Dr. David Claman is our favorite provider. He is low key humorous warm caring and well prepared. We are lucky to have him.

I have seen many physicians over the years both for primary care and specialities and Dr Claman was the most thorough of them all. In addition to his clinical expertise he was very personable and kind thoughout the appointment and made sure I had plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

So disappointed. I'd waited for this appointment for months with a condition needing urgent help (night terrors that made me fall out of bed and hurt myself and severe insomnia). I felt like this doctor just told me everything about sleep hygiene that I could've printed from the internet and prescribed me drugs I could've gotten from my GP. He then told me to come back in the next 4 months with no other help tests or follow up. He was nice but I didn't feel like my chronic condition was taken seriously or like the visit helped in the slightest.

This was a routine follow-up required by Medicare. I knew from the sleep machine information on my machine things were going well. Dr. Claman confirmed that and was very supportive about my progress. His demeanor was essentially cheering me on and advised that not everybody has as good results. He also gave me pointers and reminders on improving one small problem air leakage which I figured and he advised was not something I had to do but my experience would be even better than the reduction from 72 apneas an hour to under 2 with normal being 5 for people without the diagnosis. He is like a coach trying to help a good athlete be even better.

Dr. David Claman remains an invaluable asset to UCSF. He could have retired years ago but perseveres motivated by helping others in need.

We feel that Dr. Claman is exactly the provider [name redacted] needs. [name redacted] is a complex subject - we felt good about the direction treatment will take and about Dr. Claman's determination to help improve her situation.

I was surprised about how thorough and how much time Dr. Claman examined and spoke with me. Am looking forward to working with him to resolve and further understand this medical issue. We discussed all of the available treatment options appropriate for whatever the test results might be.

Dr. Claman is the greatest. I wish he was more than a sleep specialist and could be my primary care physician.

Dr David Claman is THE best doctor at UCSF that I've encountered (and I've been with UCSF since the 1980's). He's thorough knowledgeable and just a really nice person. He's definitely a stellar doctor and human being as well.
