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 feel I am well listened to and I think Dr Mcfarlane has referred me whenever needed and appropriate lab tests have always been ordered.

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!!!!!

The nurse/PA who initially retrieved me from the waiting room, performed the basic tests for blood pressure, pulse rate, etc, was the only weak link in the entire experience. He did not make me feel very comfortable or seemed very competent. I understand he is young. He did not update my current list of medications though I provided him with a written list, containing prescription name, dosage amount, and frequency.

Dr . McFarlane is honestly the best and most compassionate doctor I've ever seen. She listens completely before she starts her assessment. She really seems to care about me, my health and situation. I don't see myself changing doctors anytime soon.

I don't feel that we connect on any level. I don't think she cares for me and after this last visit, I'm not too thrilled with her either. I don't think she is the right care provider for me.
