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 Brancato several months ago insisted that I start using a CPAP machine. I reluctantly agreed. Using the new machine has made my life better by eliminating a chronic fatigue condition I have had since about 1990.
