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.

First visit with this Dr. since my previous Dr. [...] left her practice position. Was due to see her on [...] for my 3 month checkup which was canceled and couldn't get an appointment to see Dr. Gloria for 3 more months after that so I virtually lost that time stretching the time between visits to 6 months and I do not believe that is acceptable. Dr. Gloria is a good Dr. and I am happy with him but I hope if I need a special appointment I won't have to wait 3 months to be seen.

My only additional comment. If I need to see my provider at once (flu, uti, some unexpected occurrence) I am never able to see him. The PAs are very good but I wish he could be available occasionally.

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.
