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.

I feel Dr. Cockcroft is a dedicated physician, however, the wait time both in the waiting room and in the exam room is almost lengthy. It's not unusual to wait a half hour or so to just go back to the exam room. I NEVER feel that Dr. Cockcroft is rushed or wants to get on to other patients. When he's in the exam room with you, YOU are the most important patient that he has and, despite the wait time, I continue to seek his services because of his "bed-side" manner. I would recommend the practice to others with the reservation concerning wait time if you wish to have Dr. Cockcroft as your PCP!
