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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

This was my first visit with Dr. Khary and I look forward to a good relationship with her as my PCP. I have been asea since Dr. [...] retired and the 3 doctors that I did visit in her old practice were less than satisfactory. I'm happy to have been rferred to Dr. Khary.

I like my primary care provider, [...], much more.

Obtaining the referral was very good. However, It took two weeks for the referral to be approved. [...] I had to call several times before learning it was approved. Dr Khary and wanted me to call dr. the same day she referred me. I did, but they could not schedule me until they had received the referral. Dr. Khary's office was wonderful in that once approved, they faxed the approved referral over. The referred to dr. literally had to have it in hand.

THANK YOU FOR ALL WHO WORK IN THIS OFFICE

I communicated primarily by the website. I had to request my full blood work results. this was my first visit with the provider. not being completely satisfied I am researching to find a different provider. I completed the pre appointment information work online but apparently it didn't load. I felt the provider was more interested in doing computer input than in me as a new patient. As I was new I was quite surprised I didn't receive a full examination of the type my old doctor would give me yearly. the provider checked throat, ears and took bp and had blood drawn. that was all.

02/07/2017
This is the usual office I go to for care - but this was not my usual doctor that I always see. I was very disappointed with the care I received from this doctor. I'm sorry to say that she did not make me feel comfortable or that she was interested in anything about me. I felt that I was a bother to her. As I have always gotten excellent care with Providence this rather upset me.
100

02/07/2017
I'm very pleased with my PCP. She listens well, is extremely thorough and direct/clear in her communication. Address on one referral was out of date (changed several years ago) so I went to the wrong location. Another referral sent me to the wrong doctor and location.

02/07/2017
I arrived 10 minutes early as requested to checkin fill out forms, was called back to exam room just prior to my 3:40 appt. Vitals taken, left in exam room for almost 30 minutes before being seen. Well beyond my apt time almost 30 minutes (actually 28 min). Need to have on time go both ways for the us and the office, otherwise will show up 30 minutes late too!

Good listener, sensitive, straightforward communicator
80

12/20/2016
My provider seemed very knowledgeable about a variety of medical concerns, and was very interested in my overall health, my only complaint - and I think we'll iron this out with time - was that she wasn't much of a "people person." I left feeling I had been interrogated about my health history and even the things I was sure about - like my insurance deductible - she made me feel I must have been mistaken about. It was my first time to see this provider and I think with a few more visits we will get along better.
100

12/11/2016
Dr. Khary has always been helpful and when she cannot help me she refers me to another doctor - I appreciate her honesty.

11/07/2016
During this appointment, we discussed multiple areas of potential concern or treatment, and I did not feel hurried or limited to single issue coverage as has sometimes occurred with other providers in the past. I really appreciated this.

11/02/2016

100

09/25/2016
Dr. Khary is always caring, understanding, extremely knowledgeable on a wide array of health issues, and helpful. [...] And one of the things I like about Dr. Khary, in addition to her listening to my concerns without being unnecessarily judgmental, is that she never comes across as condescending in her approach. She treats me as an equal--even though she's the doctor! I like and respect her very much.
90

09/19/2016
Dr. Khary listens to my concerns, answer my questions, and refers me to specialists as needed. (Yes, I am one of those patients who walks in with a list of concerns/questions!) Although I see her only once a year for an annual exam, emails are promptly answered by her or other staff.

I think that Dr. K is the best, she is very caring and tries to always make sure my questions are answered. I love joking with her, seeing her sense of humor.

All I can say A++++Dr. K.
