Review for PALO ALTO MEDICAL FOUNDATION FOR HEALTH CARE RESEARCH & EDUCATION, Mountain View, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

They have a great facility with great doctors and other personnel. Across many departments, they almost always have appointment openings when I need them, and they rarely make me wait long once I'm there for an appointment.

The one problem with PAMF I have is that they've changed their billing system recently and can't seem to figure out how to input my family's insurance info so I don't have to give it to them again and again.

Review for ACTERRA: Action for a Healthy Planet, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I really enjoyed the two sessions I attended to plant trees in the banks of the San Francisquito Creek! Also, the person who was in charge of Acterra's creek programs was very generous with his time to come to my summer camp to explain the San Francisquito Creek to a big group of kids. Unfortunately, shortly after that, he was laid off, and now I don't know who to contact at Acterra about their creek work.
