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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

Overall I was completely disappointed with my appointment. The reason I scheduled an appointment was because I wanted to be seen by a counselor in this office. I was told that I needed to be an established patient first and then be referred to the counselor. Come to find out, the counselor will no longer be working there, she's done at the end of September. I spoke to 3 different people regarding my appointment and at no point did anyone tell me she was leaving. It was a complete waste of my time [...] I also didn't think the provider was very personable or friendly.

I have pain in my side for years and she pressed on the sight so hard that she left a bruise, sometimes I feel she doesn't believe it hurts as bad as it does

Personally, I have never had a negative experience with Dr. McFarlane. She has always treated me with respect and dignity has displayed a genuine attitude of caring and concern each and every time that I have seen her. I a word, she is AWESOME! I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.

When I called to make the appt, I asked about getting blood work first. They said I didn't need it, but I do, so I have to make an extra trip. The only dissatisfaction with this visit.

It's taken awhile, but I think Dr. McFarlane understands me more than she used to. I can be very difficult so I am a challenging patient. She was very nice during this last appt.

She doesn't seem to show compassion or concern for patients. She prescribes medication without explaining its purpose and directions for taking it.

1st visit with this provider and it was very positive. She will be my new "regular physician" as my previous physician moved his office too far from my home to continue with him.

Doctor rushed - made me feel defensive - "is this the same thing" - nurses/dr. assistants whispering about me - seemed to want me to leave to use the room although I had ?s once I read the material.

[...] I wasn't contacted by the dr. regarding my blood test. It was immediately online and I got an email telling me it was online.

Dr is forced to continually write notes on computer. She has to type while patient is explaining needs. I don't like that. Don't believe Dr can listen to one conversation and write about another. Dr is bound to miss something or confuse facts. This is not fault of Dr. Scribe should be used or short recorded "sum up".
