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 came for a painful knee. The aid that took me to the examining room did not seem to note that I was having trouble walking. it would have been nice to have been offered assistance.

Too long of a wait!!! Waiting a long time before they call me in to the doctor's office. Then from the doctor's office, waiting for almost an hour before the doctor came in. It was really obvious that the doctor was rushing for her next appt, which somebody did knock on the door and she said she had to go.
