Patient Ratings and Comments
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.

Everyone at this practice is very helpful. If I have concerns re: my current health, I always receive a call back from a nurse or physician's assistant in a timely manner. Questions/concerns I have about my health are taken seriously by the support staff and Dr. Beckerman.

Dr. Beckerman was excellent. he knew exactly what we needed, ordered it and got it done. He and his staff were so very kind - we were scaired when we went in, but calm and confident when we left. I couldn't be happier with my experience in any way.

Then when I finally got an appointment with Dr. Beckerman the office does not have an active wait list so I was forced to call every morning for two and half weeks to see if there had been an opening int he schedule.

James Beckerman MD is an outstanding Cardiologist. I enjoy seeing him because he is very informed on the latest procedures relative to my heart problems, overall health condition and always offers advise and medicines that are related to my specific needs. He is a great listener and always makes me feel like he has my best interests in mind when developing my future health strategy and plan. Every patient should be so lucky as to having a super Doctor in the Cardiology Department of their local Hospital. He is the greatest.......

My doctor suggested that I do a stress test. Instead of driving to Portland , He asked if I would like to have it done closer to home in Seaside. I agreed and Dr.Beckerman said that I would be contacted to set up an appointment. To date I have not heard from the local clinic.
