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.

Very patient and understanding provider. The fact is that she listens attentively to my concerns, and together we try to figure out what is best for me. She is an asset to your institution. I would never feel comfortable changing her for any other provider. She is the best. I really like her as my provider.

The amount of time it took and friendliness was the best thing ever. I spend on average more than 3 hours a day on public transportation, the fact that something like this went as quickly as it did is a real benefit!

I've loved my provider from the very beginning. She has a way of putting my worries at ease and always answers my questions with care and sensitivity. I love that I've been with her long enough that she really knows my entire medical history and can address the ups and downs.
