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 new waiting room doesn't account for larger sized individuals. Need to bring back couches or more comfortable chairs. Chair/Couch against wall not comfortable.

Your new computer system/ program is making it hard for my specialist at Providence to get or receive my medical files from a previous Doctor. Sharing information between Doctors should be that hard. Also there was no way to view a MRI cd in the examine room. We all had to go into the Doctors personal office. If a hospital is going to heavily rely on technology it needs to work.

I respect Dr. Kresa-Reahl as a scientist. She appears bright, organized, informed. The part that hasn't developed for me the way I'd really like is the "spark" or connection that two people working together develops. I feel somewhat like a specimen to be measured, etc., and examined! [...]

Minimized my problem. Did not listen to me. Discouraged appropriate referral to a sub specialist who is more knowledgeable about my diagnosis despite clear information that transferring care or referring was reasonable, but clearly was not herself expert in this issue.

Dr. Kresa-Reahl is very easy to talk to and shows genuine concern for me. She always knows my medical history, which is crucial in determining the best course of treatment for me.

Dr. Kressa-Rehal is the first provider I have seen at Providence that really knew MS and it's affects and what to watch for. She noticed I was depressed a few years back when I didn't think I was. She really helped by getting me to other health care providers and adjusting the medication I was on. Now I am doing great!

03/22/2016
While I had to wait much longer than normal, it was because of extenuating circumstances with another patient that needed to see her immediately. It was not a problem for me. I appreciate the fact that she takes the time necessary to care for patients needs.

01/24/2016
I felt that too much time was spent by the doctor talking about other cases, as well as looking up and writing information regarding my prior visits and results that I already knew about; I really needed to spend the time talking about more about my present and/or continuing issues that were new or had become worse.
