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.

Leah is the best provider I've ever been to through many years of poor health. I always receive the best care possible from her; but beyond that I never leave her office without new knowledge. She is always tuned into the patient's whole body, not just a focusing on her specialty. I would recommend her to anyone that has need of her services.

I have only been to one appointment and although very pleased with Leah and others I have spoken with, it is premature to know how ongoing care will be or whether staff is sensitive to patient experience. I can say that based on what I have seen so far I am optimistic that I am and will continue to receive good care and respect.

Leah is great.. she listens and shows interest in what I am concerned about. She seems genuinely concerned about me and is very proactive in finding solutions or treatments for my medical/physical needs. Leah is very professional and personable with me. Leah always makes me feel comfortable sharing my concerns and makes me feel I can trust her. She is amazing at getting referrals done and tests ordered if any are needed. She is very genuine and she seems to treat her staff with respect as well as her patients. I am very happy with Leah and how she treats me as her patient.

Leah was beyond kind and excellent in her care of me. I have been suffering from chronic dizziness for many, many years and lately I have fallen alot because it has become so bad. Leah listened to me, understood what I was trying to say. And as I write it seems she has come up with a prescription plan that has brought this long term dizziness under control. I called her yesterday to thank her for giving me my life back!

This provider filled in for my regular provider. She satisfied my needs but I would have rather seen my regular Neurologist. I saw this provider because I needed to see someone fast.

This care provider works in the Dr.'s office and I've seen her in that office on visits to St. Vincent. This virtual appt. is a good thing but the wait time until she actually came on screen was much too long. This appt. happened after two others had been cancelled and was two months beyond the original appt. time.

I have always gotten the care I need and good answers when I see either Dr. [...] or Leah Gaedeke in the office. They are very conscious about making sure all my concerns are met. When I call in with a problem or a question, sometimes it can be a literal game of telephone. The assistants taking the messages don't always listen or understand what I'm asking, and the message to the doctor gets muddled. [...]

I regularly have long waits for my appointments at the end of the day. On this occasion, I had the first appointment of the morning and had to leave after waiting 30 minutes. I do not have time for long waits, especially at the beginning of the day. Either the appointments are overbooked on purpose, causing frustration and stress for everyone, or the physician was late. No one alerted me. I would have cancelled my appointment if I had been told I would have such a long wait.

Leah was extremely helpful explaining the pros and cons of making a medication change and assisting with my current medication. She was very thorough and understanding as I asked her questions and never rushed me in the process. She is an excellent educator too!
