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.

Dr focused on on the job injury when I clearly explained that is handled separately, forced his opinions without regard to all that I had been through in prior 10 years. Waisted whole visit on this. This was a physical and Dr did not listen to my heart, lungs, check thyroid, eyes etc. [...]

I find Dr. Gloria the best physician i have ever seen [...]. I think he's smarter, more personable and up to date more than previous physicians. I recommend my husband to him and he had just as many good things to say about him. Dr. Gloria diagnosed the type of Cancer my husband had, before we saw any specialists. [...] I really can't say enough good about this man. We are so fortunate to have him here at the Coast!

I was 5 minutes late for my appointment. I am always on time this was a fluke. The receptionist looked at the clock and said in a loud voice "the doctor will see you after he has seen the other patients who were on time". The fact is the wait wasn't long BUT I have often waited more than 5 minutes for Dr. Gloria and thought it was rude for this receptionist to speak to me this way. Late is late regardless of who does the waiting.

I am able to e-mail my doctor comments about a problem I have and the doctor responds with information that may answer my question or ask me to make an appointment as soon as I can. Receiving feedback to a question in less than 12 hours is a large plus for me.

I hold Dr. Alexander Gloria in the highest esteem. He is the best physician I have seen in the 20 years of living on the Coast [...]. He's highly intelligent, sensitive, compassionate, knowledgeable and very personable. He was exact in my husband's diagnosis of esophageal cancer and referred him to immediate, specialized care at [...]. While I cared for my husband at home, Dr. Gloria met all our questions and needs with skill and care. I'm 73 and I have not seen a physician with this level of concern, ability and love for his patients. We are so very fortunate to have him here. I was his patient, then recommended my husband see him. He was very, very satisfied with Dr. Gloria as well. We both received excellent care from Dr. Gloria. I just hope he stays here for many years.
