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.

made an appointment to establish care and obtain my medication prescriptions. I am a [...] nurse and have to go through this about every 3 months. she did not take that into account even though I would obtain health records, had prescription records from every pharmacy used,and explained how long it takes to get an appointment with a specialist and my medication is very sensitive

I was a little frustrated because I asked for a spot on my leg and arm to be looked at also, I think I should see a dermatologist. I have a high deductible so more visits means more out of pocket. The Dr Ji left and I asked her nurse if she could look at those spots (which I had told the nurse needed looked at) and she said the Dr was already leaving so it would need to be done at another time.

The doctor rushed me out of the room, saying she had no time and I should come back another time if I have any concerns about my health. She was mot a good listener and didn't perform the routine checkups on me, such as reflex, thyroid or other things like my previous family doctor had done.

Provider was friendly but really doesn't go out of the way to really understand patient's health or dig deeper. Provider was quiet and only did what she had to to get patient in & out. No real rapport or conversation.

I just moved over thirty miles from this provider. I considered looking for a new physician closer to my new residence, but Dr. Ji is definately worth the travel time to see. Understanding, patient, and more than willing to answer my questions. I will return to Dr. Ji.

As a retired RN I tend to be very picky about my health care but Dr Ji and her nurse always make me feel important. They are more than just helpful they are encouraging.

Dr. Ji is very minimal in what she says. I felt like most of the conversation was just me telling her what I thought about things and she just kind of looked at me and shook her head. She seems very quiet. I work in healthcare and I realize a lot can be going on in the background but it would be nice if she talked a little more:)
