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.

[...] this was a waste of my time. when i patient asks specific questions and makes it clear that they do not have clear information of health issues, i feel that it is on the provider to connect the patient with the information. [...]
Providence Health & Services Patient

Staff was kind. Wait was typical. Provider was rushed, cold, and annoyed. She was insensitive and acted impatient when I cringed and squirmed during an unplanned and painful procedure. I had abnormal test results [...]. When I had questions, I turned to the internet rather than calling the office - I didn't even want to call the office at that point. What may have seemed routine to the provider was not to me. [...] I get that dealing with people can be exhausting. But I think it should have been handled differently. I expect health care providers to be sensitive and professional.
