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 Gadeadke is not a MS Neurological doctor, rather a Nurse Practitioner. In all the time I've been with your MS office Leah has been more helpful and gave me more info on my condition then all the doctors I've seen up to that time.

She seemed OK, and diagnosed the MS I've been suffering for 2 years that the Corvallis docs can't seem to see. Unfortunately she wouldn't start any treatment as I couldn't remember the dosage of one med I'm taking. Thus I'm like in bed in pain all day. [...]

While she appeared to listen, her responses were rote and scripted. She did the most cursory neurological exam ever administered to me. In the future, I will insist on seeing the neurologist.

Due to a new health concern that caused me to be taken off my main maintenance medication for MS, my Neurologist asked me to come in and see Leah to discuss medication alternatives. Leah always takes time to understand my concerns, and problem-solve together with me and with the broader team at the MS Center. For this visit she referenced discussions she had with Dr. [...], the Medical Director, and Dr. [...], (my primary Neurologist) about my case. I appreciate that!
