No longer in this practice: Andrea Franchett
Editor Note: there is another practice on Dwight Way with a similar name: Berkeley Primary Care Clinic which is affiliated with Lifelong Medical Care.
I have been going to Berkeley Primary Care Medical Corps for awhile and have had Dr. Andrea Franchette as my primary MD. However, she has left the practice. I am wondering if anyone has recommendations for other MD's in the office. I have seen Dr. Powell and thought she was OK, not great...
Editor Note: Dr. Franchett now practices at Temescal Creek Medicine
Re: General practitioner for husband
I posted for a male doctor a while back and got no responses, so here's what I've done since: http://www.berkeleydoctors.com/ I see Doctor Ako Jacintho there. I don't know about all the doctors in this clinic, but I really like Jacintho. So often they'll try to get you an earlier appointment with someone else, and in most cases I decline and wait to see Jacintho. He will transact with you over a secure website as well, including refilling easy scrips without a visit (assuming you're on an HMO - PPO is probably different). Good luck! Anon
Re: Primary care physician referrals
I really like my new primary care doctor, Susan Lucas at the Berkeley Doctors' Group on Regent Street, 510 848-7533. She's young but very smart, thorough, and kind. Meryl
Re: Female Primary Care Physican Needed
My mom, husband, and I have been seeing Elizabeth Powell for years now, and I like her very much. She's thorough and a good communicator, willing to listen to your concerns and take the time to respond. I switched to her when she was able to identify a drug allergy (unusual symptoms) that another on-call doctor couldn't. The office is right by Alta Bates on Colby St, 510-848-7533.
Re: Health Net Primary physician
Hi. I had been seeing Dr.Powell for about a year. If you can see Dr. Lee in the Berkeley Primary Care group, I'd suggest seeing her instead. She's new to the group, but friendly and fairly reasonable in this wonderful world of managed health care.
I would highly recommend Elizabeth Powell as an MD. She is thorough, respectful and very approachable. She has been my MD for several years and has alway been great. MK
Elizabeth Powell has been my primary care physician for about 8 years now, and my experiences with her have been pretty positive. I don't go to her anymore for my annual exam, since I acquired a GYN with my first pregnancy, but she's always been helpful for the few minor ailments I've picked up along the way, and she is certainly not patronizing. I don't think she would be hostile to alternative treatments, but I don't have personal knowledge of that, as I have been fortunate with my health and have not had much need to explore alternative medicine. You could probably arrange a ''get-acquainted'' meeting with her - - I know my OB/GYN did those, and Dr. Powell might, too. Wendy
