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.

None noted, but the discussion and information was very technical and not easily understood by a lay person such as self. I did relay the information to my lady friend, a PhD in sciences who had taught A and P to pre-med, etc., and she understood that which was conveyed to me at the appointment. I would have benefited having her with me at the evaluation meeting.

I am very pleased to have Dr. Halperin as my cardiologist. I trust his judgment and his honesty very much. I come from Corvallis which is about 80 miles away, and it is worth doing this because of Dr. Halperin.

everything was great until I could not schedule for a next appointment in six months because the scheduling was not done and I had to be told to call and follow up in Jan 2017 that is unacceptable for a patient to have to wait you need to improve this

I stared treatment With Dr. Halperin in the late 1990's. He performed an ablation on me in 2005 and 2008. Last year I had a friend who was not satisfied with the service she was getting here in Bend. I recommended she contact Dr. Halperin. She told me her experience was outstanding. [...] The and my judgment is the same--outstanding on his part and the entire staff at Providence.

With just 6 business days to go before my surgery, my pre-screen uncovered a possible issue with my ECG that might have postponed the surgery for several weeks. I need an echo, an evaluation by a cardiologist at [...], then Dr. Halperin's assessment of all that from his perspective as a specialist in the electrical pathways in my heart. The amazing thing to note here is the level of cooperation between all these specialists so that I would get the right anesthesia for the operation. Many of the modern anesthetics could have caused a heart attack. This is what's important, not whether I had to wait 15 minutes or 25 minutes at an appointment.
