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 am satisfied and thank you to everybody for give me a professional care.

All of my Providence health providers are outstanding care-givers and technicians--and as a result all of my in- and out-of-office experiences have been good.

This was an initial visit to work on an afib issue and to determine whether further action was necessary. Was treated well by all I was in contact with.

Support staff was extremely helpful & friendly (on the phone & in the office). The doctor was focused & efficient.


He is attentive to what I am asking & always kind as he is explaining things to me.

Everyone great, except Dr. Brancato

Dr. Brancato intends to be an excellent doctor, and in most ways, I'm sure he is. The negative issues I saw may be due primarily to the time trap a high-powered specialist falls into. Many people need his help and he is only one person. [...] Dr. Brancato [...] avoid dealing with the whole person to some extent. [...]

providIer would not answer any questions about drug interactions but said ask my GPS who told me to ask my heart doctor? it seems to me that everybody wants to drop a hot potatoe. [...]

My experience and care with Dr. Brancato and the Heart Rhythm clinic was excellent. [...] I feel like I was treated with exceptional care and respect. I can't say enough good about my dealings with this care provider and I will recommend them to anyone I know who needs similar care.

This provider listened to my health concerns.

I have had excellent care [...].

When I asked a question related to a past visit on My Chart, the response was given the same day, which I was very happy with. I have always gotten my sometimes late requests for my perscriptions on time, and I am thankful.

I felt as though he sat, listened and ready tried to explain everything in away I could understand the heart problem is a confusing to understand. I felt as though he cared an had compation for my feeling.

He was great answered all of my questions, Was very nice and considerate.

Provider gives me plenty of opportunities to ask questions and gives answers I can understand with useful information.
