About Our Survey

A provider’s star rating is based on a Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. In this survey, taken after an office visit, patients answer a series of standardized questions and have the opportunity to provide custom comments. Providence strips identifying information from comments so they can be shared without jeopardizing confidentiality or patient privacy.

I had a long wait time and the receptionist did not let me know Dr. was running behind. I had to ask after waiting over 20 minutes.

Doctor was very easy to talk to and seemed interested in me as a patient. Also, Dr. was very nice and respectful to the nurse assisting (which often is not the case.)

I am a 64 year old female with chronic adult diagnosed asthma, osteo arthritis throughout my body, acute dry skin with some spots of concern for me. I have never had a diagnosed cancer skin or otherwise but I felt that the body exam was done very quickly and failed to cover all the issues I wanted to. The places I could remember to ask about were looked at in a very quick manner resulting in my forgetting a large red spot on the side of my nose which has grown. What I heard from the provider was that I had spots of aging and exema (sp), flat warts on my right hand and that the places I could remember to ask about were normal or the conditions mentioned before. I am grateful for my share Oregon medical coverage and do not wish to use inappropriately. The provider and assistant were professional and kind but I felt very rushed and got the feeling I really had little reason to be there. My exam was quick and cursory and did not answer my questions. I live alone and with shoulders which limit my movement, I am unable to examine my whole body for possible skin problems. I was given a brochure on what to watch for in skin cancers and given a steroid prescription for exema (sp) and a brief guide to take care of the warts........I just felt it was not a systematic exam because I didn't present with obvious suspicious skin problems and was given a quick once over.

Almost didn't get appointment until 6 weeks later but then I asked receptionist on phone to ask her if she would see me. They found time for me to come in that very day. This relieved my mind, and having the same day appointment eliminated 6 weeks of delay in treatment for a skin issue.

One of the two things that took me to see Dr. Jetmalani was rosacea. She didn't examine my skin where I was trying to show her where it bothered me..my neck, under my hair. She asked a few questions and kind of dismissed it with a sunscreen recommendation. I needed her to look! I'm not a doctor. my skin is irritated and she should have looked at it.

Dr. Jetmalani is a kind, skilled dermatologist who listens to concerns with respect. She has a calm demeanor. I like that she is not someone who seems focused on cosmetic care, but actually her patient's health. She is practical as well (such as recommending not continuing with anti-fungal medication for toe nail when it is likely to keep recurring, is not impacting quality of life or health and the medication has potential risks).
