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.

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 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.

I am unable to get an appointment the same day. Other than that my healthcare provider has been excellent. We get along very well usually. He is very concerned about my narcotic use as he should be. I have been able usually to follow his instructions. He speaks to me as an equal and respects my opinion most of the time. He has not be very supportive of my search for pain relief and has warned me several times that my search my be in vain. He sometimes asks me to do some things that I am unable to do and then I feel bad about not being able to comply. I think of myself as an excellent patient and am pleased to have him be my Doctor.

Dr Gloria listens to my medical concerns and addresses them professionally. I never feel like I am being rushed through. He makes needed referrals in a timely manner. I obtain results of lab tests etc using "My Chart". I am sure that if the results were not as they should be, I would be contacted by the office for additional consultation.
