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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

Dr. Edward Chaplain is one of the best primary care physicians I have known. As a retired physician, pathologist I have known or had quite a few physicians. He is not only knowledgeable, but very pragmatic and has excellent rapport with me as a patient. [...]

Current good knowledge of Medical literature, routinely discusses same in terms understandable by layperson without condescension. Is reachable using "My Chart" and answers personal messages. Good at placing random medical papers in context and separating technical publications from worthless internet babble. Allows patient well informed decisions, particularly valuable for geriatric issues. He is helpful with patients who think they know something about medicine and clarifies what you understand correctly as contrasted with what you are hopelessly nave about.

He is attentive, grounded, thoughtful in his responses, and listens to your concerns and provides useful and realistic feedback. He started out as my primary care physician; now my entire family sees him. He is wonderful and I can't compliment him enough on his excellent care.

Dr. Chaplain is the best Doctor I have had in my 64 years. Very attentive and compassionate. I will only see him unless it is an extreme emergency. My Mother and recently deceased Father felt the same about Dr. Chaplain.

I really respect and like Dr. Chaplain. I have been his patient for almost a decade. Dr. Chaplain recently moved to the Lloyd office; this is the first time I am considering a new provider. The Lloyd location is not in a safe area, parking is very inconvenient and unsafe, traffic is very bad at most hours. I have visited twice and I am so disappointed. I don't want a new provider but the Lloyd office is just not patent oriented. So disappointing.

Dr Chaplain is fantastic! He is a great listener, is warm, and empathetic. He seemed eager to get a thorough and accurate medical history and really seemed to know the implications of an obscure issue. I left feeling like he really cared for my well being and would follow things closely.

Dr. Chaplain is without doubt the best primary care doctor for whom I have ever had the privilege of being a patient. He is attentive, communicative, and above all, caring. His precautionary instincts led directly to a a very early diagnosis of esophageal cancer, which without doubt was life-saving; and his care following multiple surgeries was and remains of the highest possible standard.

Dr. Chaplain treats me as a person, a person he knows well, rather than as a patient. This allows me to feel more at ease to discuss any problems. He is a very caring man.

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
