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.

Rarely uses My Chart the way it was intended to be used. Relies too heavily on PA's to do his communication and follow-up so information gets confused easily between them, us, and the doctor. During recent visit I had to repeat information multiple times for him and he asked the same questions several times like he didn't hear my answers or they didn't register with him. A lot of the answers were in front of him in my records. We have had problems with my wife's care with this provider as well. Not at all happy with him. We will be looking for a new doctor.

He did not seem to understand that I saw him first visit as had not liked my previous primary car doctor, and I was there to meet him for first time. I had ordered my medical records from previous primary care to be sent to him 5 weeks ago. He said "I do not know how I can help you today". Need new doc, and one to order my Levothyroxine. I see a psychiatrist for psych drugs and rheumatologist for R.A. and Lupus, just need primary care for times get sick, levothyroxine, just and primary care doctor.

Dr. Detweiler has been very good at addressing the needs of my health care. He takes the time to talk over what is going on and then works diligently to solve the issue. At this time, he has me working with a specialist to determine what is the cause of my constant extreme stomach pain. He always follows up and is very attentive to making sure that I understand the meaning of all the test results and what else we may need to do to solve this health issue.

I've only been going to him for less than a year, but think he's a nice man. He's super good about getting me into a specialist right away. He goes and calls the specialist himself during my appt., so that is impressive. I like this dr. so far!

Dr Detweiler is excellent....I've been an RN for 40 years and when a recent crisis occurred he saw me immediately without an apt. just to get me into a Oncologist ASAP. His efforts and the follow through of his staff are appreciated.
 

03/23/2017
always treated like I was the only person he had and wonderful staff
 

03/22/2017
This was my first to establish as a new patient with this doctor for my primary care doctor and I left feeling worse than I did when I arrived. I felt as if I was just a number and there was no compassion for my health concerns or issues that I have had for years. I also do not appreciate being made to feel as if taking certain prescription medications that I am a bad person, I have never changed doctors, never gone to a different pharmacy, always passed any random drug test that my prior physicians needed and the medications help the pain that I live with, but despite all of the above, he did not ask me any questions, I am currently going through menopause and experiencing various symptoms, my on going pain with fibromyalgia, my port that hasn't been flushed or discussion to take out my port, my depression all went without a care in the world. [...] it is sad when you leave a doctor's office in tears because you felt as if you weren't heard, didn't care or lack of compassion. [...] So with that being said, I am looking for a new primary care doctor.
