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.

The wait time to see my provider was not okay. I was put in a room within 10 mins of waiting in the waiting room, but it took over 45mins before Dr. Kjos came in to see me. [...] If she was running late or with another patient, it would have been nice to have been notified by a nurse or whomever rather than wait in there and wonder if I was forgotten. [...]

Dr. Kjos provided me with information about the meds I take that I did not know. Also, her nurse was extremely proficient in her job and answered several questions for me before I saw Dr. Kjos. I have referred my wife to her and suggested to others that she is a great Dr. I appreciate her manner and professionalism. I also like that she gives me a paper overview after our appt. It keeps me up on what we discussed and what action I need to take.

Good doctor. Hard to get through on phones and long wait times for getting appointment. communication between pharmacy and Dr office is bad. had to reschedule appt because once I arrived they said they were 40 minutes behind which really made me upset since I had taken sick leave and rescheduled my appointments at work. Dr and her assistant are very good
