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.

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 can only relay positive experiences with Dr. Hsu even in difficult times. He has always helped me and made me feel more than just another patient. As a patient , I actually feel that he has actual concern about my well being and that makes me Want to improve. Doctor Hsu has been a true healer/physician while dispensing a sense of humor even while you wear a humiliating open backed gown. Providence is fortunate to have him and his staff.
