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 was pleased with my office visit. I saw my test results on My Chart and then waited for a call. no call. I called for follow up. again, X-rays were ordered, I saw results on My Chart but no call from office. I was still not well so I have done the pursuing. Overall, in office visits are excellent. Maybe the staff have so many patients that follow up is difficult?

Amber Bowell is the BEST doctor I've ever had. She listens carefully to everything I want to say (which is usually more than necessary!), and she responds professionally yet with more support than I could imagine. She supports my progress, she doesn't "discipline" me for some of my bad habits but does take them seriously. She is encouraging and one of the best-listening doctors imaginable and offers her advice and knowledge like a real person - not a text book! She's the best and I wish all my friends and family could go to her.

Amber is an amazing provider. I don't like seeing anyone else but her if I can. If it's not urgent I will wait to have an appointment with her. She's the best! Amber never rushes and always listens attentively. She answers all your questions and sends you home with all the information you need, including papers on that information. Not just your after visit summary.

On each occasion that I have met with Amber, she has always been wonderful in all respects. She is professional and courteous, an excellent listener, she asks relevant questions, then takes all aspects into account to diagnose. I am not an individual that likes going to the doctor in general, however, Amber makes every appointment an enjoyable one. I am very grateful to her exceptional services and knowledge.

This was a great experience and I really liked Dr. Bowell. she was caring and very thorough and got me in right away for additional needed tests. I needed an ultrasound and by the time I got to my car they were calling me to schedule. She also was quick to call me with test results and to schedule some further appointments. This is the best experience I have ever had with a Dr. and I can't say enough good about the Providence system. I have already referred 2 friends.
