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.

this opiod overdose is extremely disheartening to me-because i am in need and its being taken down to where im once again having my functioning daily life reduced. i believe i should be treated as an individual in need, not thrown into a catergory that labels me because of someones elses bad choices. i have complied for many years and i wish my doctor would stand up for my personal need and not dismiss the pain reducing medicine i need. surely she has to know my need is genuine-look at my records.

She was unwilling to help me out with my problem. Said I should go to a naturopath for my health concerns but I should be careful with them because they will just tell me what I want to hear.

Dr. Gerhard is great. The only irritation I had with the visit is that when I was taken back, the lady stopped at the scale BEFORE taking me back to the room. I had a coat, my purse and no where to put them EXCEPT THE FLOOR! I then had to stumble around to unzip and take off my boots. They should have taken me to the room to do this AND THEN TAKEN ME BACK to get my weight. This was very embarrassing. If this were to happen again, I will not do it and leave. I work in a hospital and this is not patient centered care.

09/29/2016
Whether Dr. Gearhart uses records to refresh her memory, she seems to remember me & treat my health as an ongoing conversation.
