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.

I've never had a bad experience or any negative comments to give about Dr. McFarlane, she's the most kind and caring Doctor I've ever seen. She's patient and understanding, and is always trying to help me feel better no matter what my issue is.

i was disappointed that she could not help me with a gyn issue, but rather referred me to Ob-Gyn. i had chosen my Pcp to now cover my Gyn needs as my On/Gyn retired. she did pap, but wouldnt treat another issue that I believe FP physicisn could handle.

I was in the waiting room for less than five minutes! When in the office the medical assistant did a good job interacting and updating my medical history. It was a short wait, then when Dr. McFarlane came into the room she spent a good amount of time listening and talking to me about my questions and any concerns.

Extremely happy with my choice of provider. Doctor, nurses and front office are caring, thorough, and personable. I moved here from Wasington, where I'd enjoyed a long realationship with my provider and I was very anxious about finding another provider. Choosing Dr McFarland was an excellent choice and I am very happy and confident handing over my healthcare to her!!!!!

I don't feel like she really understands my pain, uncomfort and frustration. Finally I'm getting answers about my medical problems.
