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.

My doctor is extremely caring and an excellent doctor. The only problem I have ever had is when it was taken out of the doctor's/office's control and went to an office management service. Before that the office was well run and referrals etc. were processed with speed. After the management service took over it was so bad at one time that I missed my cardiologist appointment because of the delay in a referral. I finally got the number of the service and called them. The response was that they had so many doctor's office to cover that they were "swamped" with work. I said that they needed to hire more people if that was the case. Dr. McDonough and his regular office staff make a wonderful team but it's the outside "help" that usually causes a problem for me. I realize that this is supposed to be a cost cutting measure but it isn't always good for the patient.

My only complaint is the length of time to be seen by the specialist I was referred to. That really doesn't reflect on my provider but the overall Providence system. If I were willing to go outside the Providence system I would have been seen within a week, I have to wait over 2 months to see the specialist that was recommended....and I think that's too long.

Dr. McDonough is amazing. We moved further away from his clinic and have to drive a half hour each way to see him, but he's worth the drive. We've been seeing him for years and will never go to see another Dr. He's so friendly and thorough. He's absolutely the best!
