Amy and all staff are very nice

Caring staff.

Very Caring doctor.

Not bad

The office staff was very pleasant and helpful. Amy was very cordial and professional.

Haley, the physicians assistant, always makes me feel so comfortable and that she truly cares about how I am doing.

They got me in fast for being a new patient they were polite and kind and caring started off on a good note will see how it goes

Excellent service

The staff is always so nice and friendly. They are always happy and cheerful.

Perfect customer service and staff was prompt, professional and knowledgeable. I was concerned when my healthcare coverage changed yet was more than pleased when first appointment was completed.

Five stars across the board!!

Thank you

Everything was excellent. I'm glad that I had such a professional medical care

I was taken in to my room on time, met with a smile and hello. Friendly people and clean environment. all my questions were answered to my satisfaction.

The two videos of Dr. Prabaker before the visit were awesome. Then Haley came in and listened to everything I had to say patiently and then replied and I could tell she really loves and cares about her job as well as wants to ligetiamtely help. This was by far the best visit to a doctors office I have ever had. Thank you.

Dr. Prabaker is very thorough. He takes good personal care of me.

The wait time could improve if a appointment is @ 11:00 you should be called back with a reasonable time. PA Hayley Ridenour is amazing. She is very kind.

Excellent care

Just fine

Had to wait for Hayley who was with another patient. The medical assistants did their best. Even managed to take blood for tests, which is not easy to do on me. Everyone was very nice

Dr. Prabaker is awesome!!

People wonderful! I, however, would never recommend HealthNet as a company to anyone! The company cares nothing about the wellbeing of its customers.

I never have any problems here if I did I wouldn't be going there plus I dislike surveys

Everybody is super nice specially Haylee

Get office staff and always professional

Very good

The staff is awsome. Haley has been great to work with. Thankyou

Everything was excellent.

PA Hayley is the best doctor!

The office staff is friendly and helpful. The wait was brief and I saw the PA (Amy) who was very personable and knowledgeable. It was a very positive experience.

My first visit was very quick, didn't get the fill of things, maybe on my next visit.

Excellent service and very knowledgeable doctor

Thank you!

I am always pleased but this appointment was In a room that was not cleaned, garbage can was overflowing, garbage on the floor and the sink area.

Excellent experience as usual. Health Care staff is always pleasant and caring. P/A Hayley Is great, she always shows real concern in my treatment and always has time to discuss any questions I may have.

Great Service


Swell staff. Was treated well.


Everyone I talked to was pleasant and informative and I spent little time waiting.

It was a great experience

Very pleasant and professional office and staff

Sometimes the wait is too long but when you finally see the dr they treat you like they are really concerned for you and about you. I appreciate that.


Generally good experince . A bit long waiting time.

Amy is the best!

Fast to get an appointment. And the visit went fast. No waiting. Everyone was polite and friendly


Not stressful @ all...

Hailey is a godsend

Hailey is the best

Very pleased with the compassionate care at this facility.

I get very good overall healthcare, my provider listens to my medical issues, and refers me to the right specialist when needed. I feel they value me as a patient, and my care is very thorough and good

Everyone is very friendly and efficient. I especially enjoy working with Renee at the front desk. PA Hayley Ridenour is the person I see for my medical care. She is very knowledgeable and personable. She helped me through a very difficult summer. I am now doing better than I have in years. I could tell she was genuinely happy for me. I am seen by

Good service

Good customer service...

Amy is very knowledgeable and caring.

Please do not sent me surveys it is overhelming everybody is doing job please accept it

I had a very nice visit and will see you next time

None to give.

Place made me feel comfortable

Yes, thanks

Always taking the time to go over and explain everything. Follow up calls with more info etc. going the extra mile for their patients

I always enjoy seeing all the staff as well as Dr, Prabaker and his PA'S. The girls at the front desk are delightful. It feels like family!

Listens when I talk and seems concerned about my well being

Very satisfied with the service

Service was very good

Taken to the exam room very quickly. Med student was very nice and thorough in questions. Had to wait for Dr. Prabaker for a few minutes but a good visit. Renee very efficient and pleasant at checkout.


NP Hayley was great. She listened to all of my overwhelming ongoing issues and I didn't feel rushed. I feel like my next visit I can just talk about general stuff and not have to remind her of everything again and I don't have to retell my history again. Sometimes I go to follow up appointments and the dr is cluessless of my history; like I wasn't just in their office last month. I think she absorbed most of the information I shared with her. She even said she was going to review all of the documention I provided to her. I was impressed.

Everything great. Thank you for your understanding and dealing with my hearing loss. I'm thankful to have you taking care of my medical problems.

Very nice personal i really like to take my son there. The doctor and the nurses are nice.

Everything was good

Terrific annual Physical exam. Very well done especially the Boston Heart Lab analysis. Dr. Prabaker was excellent in interpreting and explaining the results, without using too many medical terms.

As always, a pleasant experience at SHC. Haley is the best!

Very positive experience..

Very helpful friendly

Got in and on on time.

Excellent service

Very friendly and helpful staff

Long wait after appointment time

I love Dr. Prabaker and the attention he gives me when I have to see him. I just don't like having to wait a long time to be seen. The nurses and office staff sate nice.

Once again the Health Care Medical Group under Dr Prabakers leadership gave me 5 star care. Dr Prabaker has given me 5 star recommendations to follow. It's up to me what I do with them. ( Heed his recommendations) The High Five Moments have came right along with the 5 Star Care. Keep up the Good Work. Thank you !

I a glad that I choose this office very nice thank you

My doctor visit is always excellent prompt courteous and professional

Thanks for all you do!

Always going the extra mile . Thking the time to make sure everything was gone over and taken care of

Best physical ever!

I was able to get an appointment the day after I called. Everyone was very nice to me. It's a very big relief to have a place that makes an effort to take care of you.

Dr Wozniak and her nurse Irina are very professional and knowledgeable!

The front desk girl was a bit short/rude with me when I checked in. Not a good impression for a new patient coming in. Everyone else I encountered. A plus.


Great Doctor with care p.

Very well. Highly satisfied.

Drs seem concerned about a patients welfare instead of anxious to push pills without knowing what is wrong.

Very professional.

I was on time and didn't have to wait. The procedures went smoothly and quickly. I've been a patient for ten years and am still satisfied with the service.

Great perfect Amy is a good pa

A very good experience

Didn't have to wait long. Everyone was very professional.

Long wait past appointed time

Love seeing old faces. Be blest.

I'm am Dorothy Geisbuhler's daughter and take care of her. She's been a patient with Dr Parbaker for many years. We wish you still had the El Cajon office but we understand. My mom always gets very good care at her doctors office.

My mom loves dr. Joanna Wozniak

I appreciate your getting me in even though I was 20 min. late. My fault: I had the wrong time down. Amy is such a caring and professional health advisor, and I am very glad to have her. Thank you!

I don't know how to make it a lot better experience. It was my first time in your office.

Was very pleased with your kind and professional personnel.

We are off to a good start! Nice Doctor and office staff.


Everything is great.

I was disappointed that I had to wait over an hour beyond my appointment time, but I had brought my reader/Kindle so was able to occupy myself. The appointment with the P.A. (well, actually 2 - since a student from Western was also there!) went fine. I am disappointed that yet another test of my mental status was done. It gets old...just getting old! I needed some prescriptions refilled, and the student PA took care of that with my mail order company (Humana)...but somehow my hydrochlorothiazide capsules were reordered as tablets (after taking the capsules for years). That was frustrating to me. This Medicare required appointment was pretty much a waste of time - but I was treated pleasantly even though it took a large portion of my afternoon. The link sent to me on my phone was non-operational, stating that it did not conform to Google standards. If it had worked, I would have responded immediately. Thank you for asking.
