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.

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. [...]
