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.

Ben is a great listener and when I have worries or concerns, he addresses them. Also, if I want a referral for anything....from a dermatologist to a cardiologist, he provides me with the information immediately. Also, he is one of the rare few who treat you as if you're the only patient of the day...he never acts like he's in a hurry.

Because my provider spends so much time with his patients, including me, I feel that perhaps he becomes rushed and doesn't listen as closely as he should.

The only complaint is the primary doctor either did not get the information from the referred doctors or did not read it.
