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. Chamie is great! She is attentive and smart and I trust her to give me the information I need to make decisions about my health. I know she's probably very busy, but she doesn't rush when she is with patients and I never feel like she is distracted.

I waited 45 mins to get in for my X-ray. It was not busy, the tech just didn't look at the sign in sheet. Once I called attention to myself to the labs lady, I went right in.
