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.

My Doctor is the best ever. He is always meeting my needs and is very helpful in trying to make sure I always pay attention to what I need to do next. I need to be on my best regard to follow through with what I am expected to do. So if anything goes wrong its me and not my doctor. I am always given my test results always.

Dr seemed very rushed compared to past visits. He was in and out so fast, I didn't have a chance to ask all my questions. He rattled off instructions from a 6 page summary sheet so fast I couldn't absorb it all. Luckily, I took notes on my phone when he disappeared from the exam room.

The M.A. was very nice but not as cheerful as others; nothing bad to say at all about that really. Everyone is always very friendly in the office.

My initial visit was scheduled 2 weeks out and the receptionist was able to schedule me in immediately which I very much appreciated.

Dr. Lewis always is 100% present when he is in the room with me. he listens, asks pertinent questions, very thorough and always tries to find a solution. I don't every feel like just "a number". I feel that who Dr. Lewis is and the quality of care that he provides is very rare these days.
