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 have been seeing Dr. Brandenburg for many years. He is outstanding! We have used Providence for nearly 25 years. We have never experienced anything but superb treatment, etc. except my wife's treatment at the breast center, which I understand is privately owned but located in the hospital.

I like Dr Brandenburg he is relate able and he listens to me. I feel he thinks similarly to the way I do. He tries to recommend things without pushing a lot of medications. I have recently had a heart attack so right now he is going along with the cardiologist as far as care and medications

My PCP usual timing and caring was interrupted by having to integrate a new computer system as well as acting as a teacher to a PA and to deal with new personnel recently added to the work force. His attentions were thus diverted.

I like Dr Brandenburg, but i feel he could be a little more through. While I don't have any real problems, I am wondering if there are any other things we should be checking due to my age

All is good. He listens to me and is more interested in my health than pushing pills and getting me out the door. He has good bed side manners and can be trusted. If something serious happens, I feel I can trust him and his judgement.
