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.

Visit was regarding extreme [...] pain. Recommended care has helped a great deal. May still need x-ray or cortisone shot as Dr. Chaplain had mentioned at visit. He is thorough in explaining what most likely is behind the pain. I appreciate that he asks for a call back to his office within 5 days to report the progress. He listens and cares. NO BAD EXPERIENCES EVER with this doctor!

Dr Chaplin and his staff have always provided me with excellent, attentive and timely care. I sense genuine interest in my well being and have always been allowed a generous amount of time for discussion. I have a history of melanoma and after my last CT scan Dr. Chaplain called me at 6:00 in the evening the day of the scan to give me results (good news) and that was greatly appreciated.

Dr. Chaplain in my estimation epitomizes what the word physician means. He has either by nature, experience, or training, I suspect all of these become not only very knowledgeable and caring but is able to use this knowledge and empathy to craft for himself as perfect a physician as I have ever encountered. In this age of information overload, he seems to be able to sort through the noise and find the signal that allows him to make wise judgments and decisions. I am a [...] and have occasion to use numerous medical practitioners fairly often in my 80 years, only 1 or 2 others have have com as close to reaching the level that Ted has. [...]
