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.

Dr. Andrae is my Neurologist! She is "Top Notch!" I definitely do not want her to leave or retire from PMG as she is the Best! She listens intently, asks questions in "plain simple language for the layperson" & she gives clear directions of the do's & don'ts! SHE IS A KEEPER FOR PMG!!!

I had a Brain MRI done [...]. After the office took forever to schedule the MRI, my provider never called with the results. Two months later I called and asked for them, was told I had to have an appt. It took about 4 months to get the results for the MRI. Pretty unacceptable.
