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.

This doctor seem that she was in a hurry and just being inconvenienced. When i called in for the apt. it was because i had some paint and irritatoin with some private issues. I made that clear even with speaking ot the nurse before i saw this doctor. The doctor comes in and asked me if this is a normal pap smear.. I told her no, and gave her a reaso nwhy. She act surprised and left it at that. I did not have any options to ask any question i had. She made me feel that she was in a hurry so i really didnt try to reach out ot ask those either..

[...] the amount of time with the Doctor does not seem to be enough. It was my first visit and felt as if we were not able to go over everything in the amount of time we had. It could be because it was my very first Doctors visit in a while so I had a lot to say.

Love that she is more often on-time than providers that I have had in the past. Seems fairly thorough in the exam. Somewhat feel that my questions are a bit deferred to me at times like 'would you like to have that test?' when I really just asking a professional opinion about a give test.

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.
