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.

I asked for appt. as I felt I had fluid in my ears. Dr. looked in my ears and mouth and said I did not. She, therefore, said I needed no antibiotic. Just said to continue nasal spray. Today I saw an ENT who said I had hearing loss due to significant fluid in both ears and prescribed [...]. Provdence doctor was 30 minutes late for seeing me at appt. time. When I called to get appt., I was unable to get appt. as late in day as I desired, but was then kept waiting. She was apologetic.

She minimized my complaint of pain, ignored pertainant history, offered no treatment. signs and symptoms to watch for. My pain was new, worsening. She simply told me the liver in the right side is larger than the left, that is why and abd swelling. She did not enter visit on My Chart, there is no summery , advise, etc. only vital signs. I was extremely SOB, short of breath yet the Resp. were recorded as [...]! I was insulted by the care, dismissive attitude, no recomendations.

my provider called after I had a pregnancy test and told me it was positive and then I checked the results on my chart and it was negative. so I called the office back and it took them 2 hours to get back to me to let me know it was in fact negative. very disappointing. also I feel like my provider does not care about my needs and refuses to prescribe my medications for my mental health. she makes me feel like I'm a drug addict not a patient :(

I complained about postnatal drip and issues breathing with Dr. Jean and was told just to take zyrtec. I ended up going to urgent care because I couldn't breath and inflamed airway. I'm currently on steroids pills and inhaler. I also messaged Dr. Jean on mychart regard my blood work and concerns about a consistent decline in my thyroid level aND my blood work notes showed "specimen is slightly hemolyzed". I told dr. jean I drank a beer at 8pm the night before and had a headache but she said I could get blood work immediately after my visit with her. I know I am a new patient but Dr. Jean had my records 1.5 months in advance and I asked if I could get blood work done before I saw her so we could discuss the results together. the front desk told me it wasn't possible which I understood because it has to be a doctor'said order but I asked them to ask Dr. Jean and I never heard back.

It feels great to know your care provider really cares for your health. Knows how to listen for any health concerns I may have and give me a good easy explanation to understand.

I was surprised that doctor did not have me take off my clothes to examine me since I was complaining about sensations in [...] areas. Dr. Lee is always good about spending lots of time with me during appt. and I have no problem in getting appointments when I want them. Nurse [...] had said he wanted to look at my immunization records but no one was interested when i brought them in that day. I communicate thru My Chart, not by phone. I was not asking to see a specialist. She put in order for ultrasound of uterus if I wanted to pursue that.

10/31/2016
Dr. Lee was not personable, seemed rushed, cut me off, did not ask pertinent questions, showed a lack of knowledge and understanding of presenting health issue, judgemental and could not stop stereotyping both myself and issue; could not make an appropriate assessment of presenting concerns either due to cultural mores differerring from my own and/or inconsistent treatment delivery due to underlying negative opinions of treatment options that have worked successfully for this issue in the past. Overall, a very noticeable lack of care and concern---sterile and rude bedside manners.

Do NOT like talking with someone on the care team who has to go to the doctor and get back to me....almost always frustrated with the back and forth information, especially in the last three months since my last surgery on [...] and several bouts with UTI ; finally resulting in an ultrasound and finding a mass that now I have to see an ob/gyn specialist for next week.
