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.

most communicate is via email in "My Chart". Response is quick, usually within 24 hours, depending upon when I sent it. sometimes it's the same day. [...]The entire staff is wonderful. I cannot praise them enough. Dr. Herder is so easy to talk with, even sensitive male concerns. I am not ready to die but I feel such relief in the knowledge Dr. Herder is with me.

06/12/2017
The purpose of my visit [...] was handled appropriately. However, the follow-up from Dr. Herder and the PMG clinic was very poor--lack of clear, helpful communication and no care coordination with specialist. I haven't given this feedback directly to the clinic, but will do so with more details. Bottom line, I went to [...] and the appointment was easy to schedule and w/i 1 hour of my request online, the PA there was thorough in questioning my experience and symptoms and offered additional idea on how to manage my symptoms until my [...] appointment with a specialist.

Dr. Herder is very efficient, help me get referrals for things that are not her expertise.
50

06/05/2017
I thought that the annual exam was very perfunctory. Very basic checks from the waist up--that is only half of my body. Really all that was done was a check of vitals, abdomen and lymph nodes. Perhaps this is the new normal in preventive medicine.

05/31/2017
i like Dr Herder - she is efficient and listens to my concerns. When I need referrals, she is there for me.

I had to wait longer than I was told it would take to have a prescription filled! I wasn't happy about that, but I used the time to go to the cafe and have lunch!

05/03/2017
Dr. Herder is the very best Dr I've ever had. She listens, she 's sympathetic, and she knows her medicine!! She also makes sure that I have the tool or machines that I need. I find her very respectful toward me and I feel she really cares about me as her patient. I've recommended her to several people.
100

04/28/2017
The only poor part of my experience is that when I entered the clinic, all of the front desk stations were closed with big red signs saying that they were closed, and there was one open but the person was not looking at me but at her computer and it took several minutes for to acknowledge me. She seemed to act like I was interrupting her work by checking in - it was not the kind of warm, inviting encounter that I got from the medical assistant and doctor who are lovely. [...]

I couldn't ask for a better doctor in all ways than Dr. Herder. I feel fortunate to be in her care and highly recommend her. One of my co-workers now goes to her based on my recommendation; but, she was in total agreement after her first visit with Dr. Herder.

Only second time I had met with her; she is 100% better than my prior PCP, whom I had been told to report to the OMA, by Prov Portland ER staff!

She doesn't seem to listen to me, for my pain, and I have to ask for blood work, or anything routine that needs to be done.

03/24/2017
This was my first visit with someone other than Dr. [...]. She was great! Her demeanor was professional, confident and yet friendly. For a person that usually has "white coat fever", she made me feel comfortable.

Lacking in follow up to recommendations to other doctors, and what the results were of the visit or test. Almost like it never happened.

03/09/2017
I am very pleased on how she listens" & makes eye contact when she is talking or if I am talking.
100

03/01/2017
I was able to see her the day I called, which was great because I had a severe sinus infection that was causing pressure as well as causing pain in my ears. I was able to start an RX that day. I was so happy to have them squeeze me in.
100

02/23/2017
Dr. Herder has consistently been very responsive to my medical needs and concerns. She has often responded to my electronic questions the same day. I have never felt rushed. I have always felt well served. The entire staff from check-in to check-out have been excellent. Welcoming, engaging, and professional.

Needed my ears irrigated for wax that had become clogged although that was not the reason I had come in. Dr. Herder and her nurse were very flexible and thorough and didn't wait at all.

02/15/2017
Dr. Herder takes good care of me.
70

02/09/2017
Dr. Herder is very knowledgeable and compassionate, but I consistently find that the time with her feels rushed and that my questions are not answered as thoroughly as I would prefer. This may be more a reflection of her schedule constraints rather than her care or attentiveness as a provider.
100

02/08/2017
Dr. Herder continues to be excellent in all phases of doctoring, and is extremely easy to communicate with and share concerns. Recent recommendation to additional services was very helpful and ongoing treatment for existing health concerns are top notch.

Dr. Herder was very helpful in uncovering a condition missed by my previous caregiver at another unrelated clinic. I'm very thankful!

I was concerned about my left hip pain since I have been experiencing for six months. I have had acupuncture and massage on that but still not getting better. I might have injured during yoga or something. So I thought I need medical advice. Didn't get the clear one. She mentioned about physical therapy if not getting better, but how long wait and see and when is not clear.
100

12/07/2016
Dr Herder is an excellent MD. She did refer me to a specialist from this visit for a persistent problem I have had. She listens and explains things clearly and is very open to my questions.

11/23/2016
dr. Herder is the best dr ive ever had. She really cares and listens to my concerns and gives advice and care that coincides with my thoughts also. She is not too liberal but not too conservative, and she has ALWAYS been right. She is my health care provider, injury care, and mental health prescriber (along with suggestions for therapy). She calms my BP down during the visit. Pap smears, i dont feel anything at all. She is great and Id follow her wherever she were to practice.
100

11/23/2016
Dr Herder is one of the best providers I have ever had. My husband is under her care now too.

11/09/2016
dr herder is the best physician I have ever had, I moved to Vancouver a few years back and I still go see her in Portland I wouldn't care if I had to drive an hour id still keep her as my dr. I recommend her to everyone I know looking for a PCP. I have never had a bad experience with her, she cares about her pt and you can see that

11/08/2016
Previously my husband had a negative experience with this provider as far as mis-diagnosing his condition. Subsequent to this visit while seeing a specialist I found out this provider was not entirely correct in diagnosing my issues either.
100

10/13/2016
Dr Herder has always provided excellent care for my 96 year old mother and for myself. I driver across town to see her.

10/12/2016
this is about providence call waiting [...]. get more schedulers so those waiting on the phone are not subjected to the presumably advice tape that repeats inane information; one is forced to listed to this junk while one is "on hold". silence is not a crime, nor is quiet music. drop the irritating drivel.
100

10/05/2016
I realize no system/person is perfect. However, I have NOT experienced any deficits in or with my Provider. As a female I have felt comfortable discussing sensitive male issues/concerns. This is very unusual for me.

10/05/2016
Dr. Herder is top notch. I feel she listens to my concerns.

09/08/2016
She's wonderful

I email questions/concerns to Dr. Herder through My Chart. Her answers are prompt, caring and professional. I fee fortunate to have her as my primary care physician.
100

08/24/2016
The drawbacks to this care provider is that she is not available full time and email responses to inquiries may come from a staff member whose communication is not always clear.
