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.

I like my provider, however, I think doing work on the computer screen, takes to much time for them to , really listen. Someone else should be there to help with this!

On this day, Providence, somehow, did not have my appointment on file. However, they got me in to see Dr. anyway which was good because I was fasting for the blood work. They got that done, too.

I'm 60 years old and LOVE my Doctor. He has taken excellent care of me during the most difficult time of my life this past 2 1/2 years. He listens and most of all, he truly understands. Dr Hutchinson is awesome, I've never had a Doctor quite like him.

I didn't need a specialty care referral. I like my Doctor and I am very fond of Providence services and I really like the MyChart ability, it is a very good way to communicate with my provider and them to me.

Dr. Hutchinson is a very good physician, he answers all my questions and spends the time with me. It is better now than a year or so ago when he had 10 minutes with his patients. I felt back then he was being rushed.

Although I didn't call to talk to the Dr. between visits I did communicate a number of times with him in My Chart. He always responded promptly. He also anticipated a prescription change for me that my insurance will not cover next year. We then discussed the new medication on my office visit and made an adjustment to the prescription based on my inability to handle the powder version of the medicine. I also like that he gives me lots of information and lets me ask lots of questions until I am comfortable.

Dr. Hutchinson is the best Dr. we have ever had (I am 62 and my husband is 65) so that's saying a lot. The Dr., is patient, attentive, and above all provides excellent care and provides resolution to our medical needs where others are unable to. He has a very special gift.

I respect the Doctor. Have an issue with his assistant giving medical advise that is not correct. Do not feel comfortable with her not having a medical assistant certificate and lack of knowledge doesn't stopping her from giving medical advise.

The care provider is excellent, but his nurse always makes it sound like my issues are similar to hers and no big deal. There was a student with her who needs alot of training on how to deal courteously with the patients.
