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. Graves is really great. My PCP is out on maternity leave so I saw Dr. Graves in her absence. I was very impressed with her compassion, knowledge, and bedside manner. I would definitely see her again and recommend her to friends and family. and her MA is fantastic!

At Providence, scheduling is such that can only see Primary Care Provider for routine check ups/care. For an appointment that's needed within a day or two, always have to see a different practitioner.

Dr. Graves is my ob, I'm now 25 weeks pregnant. I am so thankful that I found her. When I first found out I was pregnant I was going to a different dr in Clackamas who was very robotic and lacked empathy. Dr Graves has truly been a breath of fresh air. She is exactly what I need in an OB. She listens to everything I say, is super sensitive to all of my questions and concerns, gives great advice. Every time I see her, I probably tell my husband 100 times after that I'm so glad I found her. I have never been so happy to see a dr. seriously, give her a raise!

Dr. Graves is knowledgeable and empathetic. I am never bothered with not meeting time schedule as she takes as much time needed to meet your specific concerns. I'm certain she had held others up for me.

Only complaint is sometimes there is long wait time, or she seems in a slight rush during our appointment

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.
