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. Matthew Breeze is an excellent doctor. I never feel rushed or hurried throughout the exam process. He takes the time to listen to concerns. More importantly, he's able to explain treatment plans in easy to understand terms. My father was a family practitioner. When I had to find my own doctor for the first time around the age of 40, it wasn't easy. I had been lucky and spoiled by the best, and it took going through four doctors before I found Dr. Breeze. His bedside manner and communication skills are as good as it gets. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Matthew Breeze as my primary care provider. [...]

I always feel that Dr. Breeze takes the time to listen and approaches my health on a wholistic level. He has been one of the best listeners I have encountered in a physician. I have personally referred him to 5 people this last year. Everyone in the North Portland Providence Clinic from the receptionists, to the nurses, and physicians have a treated me as an honored guest which is why I without hesitation feel confident when referring the clinic to not just family and friends, but my clients as well.
