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.

She's the best provider that I've ever had.

I think dr. Gerhsrt is very nice. She said she didn't know what was wrong with my arm, but felt it was from overuse. I left not having enough instruction as to what to do except not to work in my yard. I called to get more information as to length of time to wait and what about other activities that hurt my arm and is there anything I can do to speed recovery. I did not talk to Dr. Gerhard directly, but I would never call again to get advice. I did reach out to providence resource and called another doctor, made an appointment to diagnose the problem with my arm.

My visit was very rushed - the MA and the Dr. seemed like they need to hurry through and I had to ask for the Dr. to return to the room for further questions. Once this happened, I felt like I got better answers. Maybe I was amiss on my expectation that I was getting a physical when it was considered a routine visit time? Not sure on that.
