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.

Always ready to act on any new or old issues and willing to contact medical personnel to handle that issue beyond his expertise.

Dr Chaplain has alway been great with both my husband and myself. When we moved here from Southern Oregon I did a lot of research on who we wanted to have as our health care provider. He is much more than I ever expected. His manner is reassuring, considerate and he is an excellent listener. I have great confidence in him.

Very attentive and respectful doctor who didn't 'talk down' to me or make me feel rushed... he actually spent more than half an hour discussing my concerns with me. Easily the best experience I've had with a male doctor in a long time! And the PA (or nurse? I forget her title) was amazing, as well - completely painless shots and blood draw, and I got the results with a note from the doctor less than 24 hours later online. The only drawback was I had to wait over a month for an appointment, but it was worth it.

I love my dr but the care team set up is a mess. Having so many people get involved sends things different directions and the communication doesn't seem to always transfer over. As a result I've had an incorrect prescription called in and my referrals were delayed.

Dr Chapman and I agreed on the role health care should play in one's life. Minimal use of medical services; however, available when required. He provides sufficient information to make informed decisions; however, he leave the final decision to the individual.

Dr. Chaplain is the best doctor I've ever had. That's why I come from Vancouver to see him. But he is so busy with an over full schedule, it is often hard to get in to see him, but usually I can get in to see one of the other 2 members of his team.

dr. Chaplain is the best Doctor I have ever gone to. he's kind compassionate and always listens to what you have to say. I believe he saved my life by getting me a stress test when all other indicators suggested nothing was wrong and I actually had a major artery that was [...] percent blocked.

The person to draw blood was not in that day, so I was sent down to the lab, where I was expected to wait over an hour. Because of this, I haven't had a blood draw for my tests. Except for this minor hiccup, my experience was exemplary.
