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.

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.

I've been telling Dr Graves for years that I felt something was "off" and she kept putting it off as [...] so I wish she would have listened more to what I was saying. instead it's cost me quite a bit to figure this out on my own

Dr. Graves always listens to my concerns and offers possible solutions and/directions for me to take to improve/maintain my health. Her assistant [...] is also most concerned and makes sure my record is up to date and checks to make sure I have gotten my flu shot, mammogram and am taking care. As a retired RN, I give high marks to both for their excellent care and respect.

The cnical experience was great, but when I call to get results (around lunch time) I was on hold for about 30 min - 20 min on land line and then another 10 on cell as I had to leave the house. This is the longest I've ever had to wait to get through.
