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.

Though this provider was not my normal physician, he was very helpful and I'd recommend him to other patients.

Dr. Calvert emailed my test results with his interpretation very quickly the same day he got the results. The email system works very well to communicate with him. It's an excellent way to be in touch with him.

The only weakness is the phone system. The wait to speak to a scheduler can often be 10 minutes, really annoying.

The very little time that the provider spends with a patient hardly allows any understanding much less the development of a solution to a problem.....especially a difficult problem. The staff might have been nice, but they were all busy and did not acknowledge I was there.

Dr. Calvert is a great doctor, but unfortunately he does not realize the amount of pain I have to deal with daily. If he were more concerned with the amount of pain I am in, he would not make me choose between getting sleep and being able to function during the day. Unfortunately he is only prescribing me medication at half the rate I need to not be in pain all day and sleep at night. This situation may be because of my insurance, but I am not sure.

Dr. Calvert has provided excellent health care for me. I had [...] secondary to high BP. I have been seeing a Dr. at [...]. During this time time my BP remained uncontrolled and so I tried another time to find a Dr. who might have some answers. Dr. Calvert has amazingly brought might BP under excellent control. He reads the chart, asks questions, schedules F/U appointments to review meds and how they are working. I am thankful for the care I have received from Dr. Calvert.

I don't feel that the provider sought the root cause of my medical complaints - rather I was given medication for each individual complaint without a real reason "why". I don't feel I can make a good decision for my health without understanding the problem.
