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.

Kris and her Medical Assistant are the best. We have had visits with other Providers in this clinic when we could not see Kris and we always receive the best care. This is an outstanding clinic.

When I moved to Gresham I attempted to see another provider in the hopes of having my PCP closer to my residence; I immediately became aware of how good my PCP is and went back. Not only is my PCP amazing, but the Gateway Family Medicine Group is overall the best in my book. [...] I have all the confidence in my PCP and the office staff [...]

Dr. Kocher is the ultimate medical care professional. I consider to be very lucky to have selected her when my PCP, Dr. [...], retired and I was searching for a new PCP. Dr. Kocher is an valuable asset to the Providence medical team!

Dr. Kocher is excellent and very professional. She is very cheerful and thinks and talks very quickly. Because she talks very quickly and is high energy, I found it difficult to collect my own thoughts and remember what I needed to ask or discuss. I feel she is competent and knowledgeable, and an excellent doctor. However, I would advise her to sometimes stop and give the patient a little more silence in which to think and process the things she is saying.

I have been with this provider and clinic for years. even after moving to Gresham I chose to stay at this clinic; after attempting to get the same quality of care at the Greaham site. I have all the confidence in the world in Dr. Kocher and the medical support staff at Gateway Family Practice. I also have experienced a higher level of care from Dr Kocher than other physicians at this same site. i can't say enough good things about Dr Kocher, her support staff, and the receptionist there.
