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.

I don't know how she does it, but Dr. Gedenk always seems to care only about me while she is with me. She remembers details about my life and is kind enough to ask. she takes time to help me make decisions and she is ready with advice and guidance when I ask. She always says "I'm sorry you're not feeling well" or "That must hurt," which makes me feel less like a pain [...]. She gives me all the info I'm asking for. The only thing that I wish is that the appt was 5 mins longer.
