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.

I really like my doctor. However I have had less than satisfactory experiences with the pa on her team. I trust Dr Graves but I have not had good experiences with the pa. I am loathe to see anyone but Dr. Graves.

think she has a preconceived notion of what/who i am and saying without truly listening to my words or what the specialists are saying. her actions and the evidence shows that. especially someone who's had to be on pain pills. i have felt pressure from her and staff to get off of them when the spine specialist and pain dr. say the opposite.

I love Dr. Rachel Graves. She is so good at her job--personable, explains everything clearly, very up on the latest medical information, efficient, thorough. With the workload doctors have in this practice, it is only possible to see your chosen doctor at regular check-up times, not for anything that requires an appointment within 2-3 weeks. You must wait a month or longer for an appointment with her.

I love Dr Rachel and followed her from her last clinic. She is easy to talk to and her MA, [...], is great. when I haven't been able to see her (mostly for my children) everyone else at the clinic is great, too.

I'm an RN and have my own opinions about things, so we don't always agree, and there is an occasional debate. I usually defer to her experience and expertise, or occasionally there is a compromise. In a case where she is recommending a medication, and I don't want to take it, she never forces the issue. So there haven't really been any "bad" experiences.

Rachel Graves and her nurse, [...] are absolutely the best team that I have had the pleasure of working with. They laugh, are incredibly compassionate, and are clearly knowledgeable and experienced. I am never afraid when I come in for a procedure because I know that they will figure out a clear plan if the results aren't ideal. I have moved quite far away from the practice in the last few years, but I happily drive the distance for the excellent care I receive from Dr. Graves.
