Specialties

Dr. Julie Son has the following 2 specialties

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Does anyone know if Dr. Son is still in practice?

Dr. Son was my primary Doctor for over 8 years, she was the best! Unfortunately I switched jobs and became a Kaiser patient. Now I want to go back to Dr. Son, but have had no luck finding her. Is Dr. Son still in practice? If so, what is her new phone number or address? Thank you!

Was better years ago

When I first started seeing her you could get in and out quickly, she spent time and explained things and was generally a service oriented care giver. Over the years, all that seems to have gone out the window. Wait times are longer and longer, hard to get appointments (she doesn't have apts certain days and times), tried for weeks to get results of tests only to get a letter in the mail telling me to make an apt because the results were concerning... and when I did, she was on vacation for weeks. went rounds with insurance company after tests because her staff didn't get preauthorization ... even though they assured me I didn't need it when I specifically asked. Sorry, can't recommend any more... but once upon a time she was much better.

why doesn't anyone answer your phones??

I tried calling to schedule and appointment for over 3 hours and left 2 messages. I never heard back from anyone. I have referred over 5 new patients and I am now regretting it. I also want to switch providers since I can't reach anyone. What is going on???
