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.

my experience was excellent
Providence Health & Services Patient

Dr. Johnson is a very capable doctor. [...] I made the assumption that the three areas I talked to him about were associated, so I tried to cut to the chase. I found out that they were not and the way I was describing the problems were confusing to him. Dr. Johnson's bedside manner comes through at the end of the visits, but I don't continue with him because of his bedside manner (if that were important to me, I would switch to Dr. [...]). He came recommended by Dr. [...], and I do feel I'm in good hands. I appreciated Dr. Johnson's honesty when he told me he didn't have any answers for what was causing the problems but that he wanted to try and help me.

His medical assistant/nurse [...] is very helpful, kind and understanding. I would prefer that the nurse/medical assistant stay in the room with me and the doctor. Then she could help explain what he said to me. What I do not like is that I felt rushed, he didn't listen or let me talk, rude comments about having a lot of medical problems, he did not know all of my history from records I had sent, made me feel like I was annoying him.
