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 Chaplain is the epitome of what a doctor should be. He listens, he cares, he considers body AND emotional needs. He has referred me to a specialist when needed; he doesn't second guess symptoms. I trust him completely with my healthcare.

I receive my lab results through MyChart, but Dr. Chaplain always includes his input on them. This time I brought a rather large issue with lots of research I had done. Even with a full calendar, he read through what I had sent ahead of time and addressed it with great respect, talked about his perspective, and was very collaborative in deciding how to proceed. This is the best quality of care!

after the Doctors appointment you have to back out to lobby and stand in line for the receptionist to validate your parking ticket. 10 minute wait to get the parking ticket stamped. receptionist said you can only get the ticket stamped after your appointment. there should be a separate line for parking validation

Front office is not very helpful. I'd love to be able to talk to a doctor over the phone but that seems impossible. Also general admin. questions are hard to get an answer to. The medical team is great.

The Drs. and nurses have always been outstanding. This office used to be a nightmare in regards of getting messages relayed, questions answered in a timely manner, prescription refills, and almost all administrative functions. It has improved in the last year or so, tremendously!! Being able to call the phone center is the biggest improvement. These people are so helpful, friendly and efficient [...] Dr Chaplain is the most caring, efficient Dr I have ever worked with. He doesn't brush off answeres. When I leave the office I feel confident in the fact that he listened, he cared and he gave me good solid answeres to my needs. I have really started on a journey of self care with him. I am actually succeeding at my medical goals. [...], Dr C's nurse, is the best! she's very caring, efficient and personal. I love my experiences with this office, now. Thank you.

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.

05/12/2016
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.

02/21/2016
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.

02/07/2016
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.
