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.

I did not always hear back from the medical assistants when they said they would get back to me. In addition, I didn't find out that the doctor had ordered a follow up test until four days after she ordered the test, even though I had spoken with an assistant on the day the test was ordered.

I have been seeing Dr. B. for seven years. She knows my medical history and sensitivities. My wife also sees her, so she knows us both. I can, and have, told her very private information, which she reacts to with compassion and sensitivity. She has made me comfortable and confident in our discussions. She has my trust and I appreciate our relationship as doctor/patient. I would hate to lose her after developing this trust. She is a great listener....I am proud and confident to call her My doctor.

I love my doctor but it seems I'm referred to a specialist for every condition that comes up. I feel she must have limited medical knowledge, but at least she sees to it that I DO get referred so my issues will be taken care of.

[...] Dr Bergquam not only listened, but treated me & gave me access to a physical therapist, both of which combined gave me 70% relief in only a few days from the [...] pain in my shoulders and hips at night. This had prevented me from a good nights sleep over the last several years. I have continued to improve. I coul;d not be happier!

First visit to provider. Had to ask to have my heart checked. Provider didn't seem all that interested in my medical history, although this was my first visit to her. Have a history of breast cancer and diabetes. My blood work was all good, so guess she wasn't very interested in learning my medical history. [...]

This was the first time I met Dr. Bergquam, who is my designated primary. Previously, I have met twice by her PA. My initial appointment with Dr. Bergquam wasn't even scheduled until [...], but because i had a procedure I wanted done, I got in sooner and we made that our initial appointment. She's very nice and did a nice job, but you can tell that the practice is overtaxed with patients.
