Patient Ratings and Comments
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.

provider was fine, but for my fasting blood sugar test I had to wait too long I arrived at 7;30 am to wait outside and be the first one as it is difficult for me to be without food ( I am diabetic) they took at least 5 people before me and I had to let them know again that I was waiting. Anyway don't know what to do next time. This was my first apt. with Dr. Chiou as I moved here in Jan.

First time visit and decided immediately because of how well the entire staff and the doctor. They listened and were very clear on explaining what could be done there or elsewhere. I had a referral for a specialist. That was refreshing to have a doctor say not my field and recommended a specialist immediately. I will continue going to Dr. Chiou.

After receiving my x-ray, the Doctor looked over them with me in the room, he did not seem to know what he was looking at and seemed to dismiss me after reviewing them because there where now broken bones. I went and got a second opinion and it was dislocated. I again felt very dismissed. And just because an injury doesn't directly show its self, should not mean a patient should get this kind of treatment.

I trust him and has always been interested in anything I ask or tell him. I would recommend him to anyone who ask about needing health care. He cares about his patients.

I filled out a comment card and nboted Dr. Chou's nurse, [...], was very amiss in her communication with me regarding an immediate visit to an ER for a CAT Scan. She failed to answer questions and offered her directions in a very questionable manner.

I like him, but he's not right for me. too cold. doesn't listen. He hears. thinks he knows everything. I have been in this body, I know my body, I know when something isn't right.

I think Dr Chiou is an excellent Dr. We have differing opinions on medications but I will usually defer to Dr Chiou unless I feel my argument is stronger or I've researched it and come to the same conclusion.

Doctor seen at this visit was rude and insensitive to my concerns and requests. i can completely under a dr for not prescribing medication against his or her values however his responses to my request was far from respectful and and lacked any compassion. every request I made was denied and I felt he was making a judgement of a foot condition based on my weight alone. however when I injured my foot I was 25pounds light. it had nothing to d with my over weight condition. [...] i came out of my appointment discouraged and nearly in tears. very disappointing

This biggest issue I have is wait time to see the provider. I first had to wait 4 weeks to see the Dr. and after consultation the doctor ordered blood tests and rescheduled a follow up for 3 weeks. I think 7 weeks is a very long time to wait to even bring to see what is wrong with me, or possible treatment while I have a difficult time functioning every day.

English might be a bit hard for some folks to understand. [...] He is obviously knowledgeable, listens well, and seems to be quite competent.

Dr,Chiou has seen me many times, and I did all he recommended and he still said my problem was mental, when in fact it is looking like [...] which I asked him about but he would not entertain. But in all fairness, he's not the only GP I have seen for condition over the 2yrs,

Staff was great! Dr. Was very insensitive and laughed at a couple of my comments and concerns, he was very hard to understand.

01/31/2016
The provider is nice enough but there seems to be a fair amount lost in translation. He has a strong accent and I occasionally get the feeling that we are not talking about the same thing. I sometimes leave wondering if he understood my problem.

Only have had one appointment [...]. I am pleased with what I found at this point and I have referred one person to date.
