A very good primary care physician

I've been seeing Dr Dial for about 15 years. She's pleasant and warm, she is very good at diagnosis, as she has found several issues with me as I age, dealt with them promptly and referred me when specialists were necessary. I no longer live in Ojai, but travel the 30 minutes to see her for my physical exams and other primary care issues. It's worth the trip. Her office staff are all helpful and friendly.

Do not see her

Terrible bedside manner, rude and disingenuous. Was more concerned about scheduling my next Pap smear then talking with me about why I was there in the first place. Asked no questions and made assumption s

Best doctor ever

I have been going to Dr. Dial since I was a child. She has been extremely caring of my needs. She have never misdiagnosed any issues I have had, always caring and pleasant. Is she a specialist no, doctors are human. I have never had any issues getting a referral for specialty doctors and they are done very quickly. Always a happy experience with her!

possibly incompetent

Terrible doctor. Actually told me at one time that colonoscopies were not needed and that sigmoidoscopies done in office were sufficient as a preventative tool. Will do anything and say anything to save money for the medical group if you are on a managed care insurance coverage.

Dr. Dial is the best!!

She's been my main doctor for over 30 years - always professional, deeply caring, explains procedures, answers questions. Sometimes need to see the nurse practitioner for immediate needs, but that's easy to do.

Incompetence is scary at the doctor's office!

Dr. Dial did not learn anything about cancer in med school. She did not learn about diagnostic tools or how to use them. That is why she was incapable of diagnosing cancerous tumors from "endometrial tissue masses" that she felt were insignificant. She was absent on the day they taught how to be an aggressive, proactive physician capable of making difficult diagnoses based on knowledge as a trained medical physician. Instead, Dr. Dial is a lazy doctor incapable of even treating minor health issues because she never looks deeper. She never "makes sure". I need surety in a physician. If they can't be sure, then they better darn know how to ask for help.
