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.

Dr Burness is hard to get an appointment with. The normal procedure when we call for an appointment for immediate need is referral to [...], who is who is thought of as our primary care provider.

My provider ordered additional tests and ultrasounds very quickly. She personally called me twice with test results, and we correspond via MyChart. She is very responsive and caring.
