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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

Doing the bare minimum of examination and then making a diagnosis anyone could make with a flashlight and a pair of eyes, is not a good provision of care. "Your throat does appear to be irritated" Really? Is that why it's red and painful? Care to provide more insight?

I was very pleased with Dr. Hsu's overall demeanor. This was first time visiting him due to having to find yet another primary care physician for my mom (who has dementia). Her previous 2 PCPs either left Providence or decided to pursue other interests. But my first impression of Dr. Hsu is good...the best I've had of any PCPs that she's seen before.

In general, I really appreciate the care. One thing could be improved. I use a wheelchair, but am independent. Because the receptionists sit behind computer screens, my head is lower than their line of sight, so I am often not noticed when I am waiting in line to be served. If the waiting space and computers were positioned to provide an open line of sight, it would improve service.
