About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

[...] I went into the ER and was told that I had a pinched sciatica going down to my knee [...] I stopped at Dr. Durkan office to see if I could get a cortisone shot in my left knee, I did not have an appointment but he stopped and take time to see me and give me the shot. [...] I am getting better but slowly, knee is just starting to not hurt to much when I walk on it. I can almost stand straight with my back not hurting.
