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.

[...] She is a great doctor but as she is 30 miles south of my home, I will not change to her as my primary provider if I should ever need to. I have no problem recommending her to anybody in her area of Portland Metro.

The office staff getting referrals to my specialists was handled very poorly and still not clear at my specialists office. They tell me one thing on the phone, then when I call my doctors office I find something different. It has been highly stressful since I need the care now. I have had to make numerous phone calls with still no clarity for my appointment needed next week.

When I changed providers from another practitioner in the Providence system over to Dr. Brown, I was quite desperate for someone competent and caring who would - and could - help me navigate and wield my way through several very complicated health issues. She was totally, and sensitively, responsive to my needs, as well as professionally knowledgeable and engaged. Before I had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Brown as my provider, I was questioning the wisdom of my having switched from [...] to Providence [...]. Since establishing my patient status with her, I am grateful for having become a member of Providence Health and Services at the providential time that I joined!

Dr. Brown has been extremely supportive of me as I have struggled to gain control of my BG levels. She has made valuable suggestions and offered ideas to help me achieve those goals. Once my A1c was within range to allow for a knee replacement operation her email to me was one of congratulations. I have truly appreciated her support, advice, and encouragement over the past 6 months or so. She has also been empathetic of the discomfort caused by the knee.

I spent a lot of time ensuring my current and family medical histories were well documented. I took care to write down all of my health concerns on the form given to me by the receptionist to complete prior to my wellness check. After my short visit with Dr. Brown, I'd be very surprised to find out she even looked at them. I was able to discuss recent stress/anxiety with her but she left no opening for additional questions and concerns I had.
