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.

Sometimes I feel that my Dr. doesn't realize how much pain I'm in. Not that she can do much for me...but it seems that because she can't see the pain - that it probably doesn't exist?

I have always had a good experience with Dr. McFarlane. I find it easy to be honest with her and she understands my health needs and what I need to do to maintain it. She not only helps with my health but treats me like a person not just a patient. She always asks about my family and knows my close relationship with them especially my grandchildren. She's the best doctor I've ever had!!

Dr. McFarlane is very thorough. Even though I am older and have an extensive file, she is aware of items in my health history that relate back over twenty plus years. Whenever I ask questions, no matter how obscure or seemingly off the wall, she always listens and answers with attentiveness and respect. She also offers thoughts on my health care I would not have known to ask. I trust her knowledge and genuine concern without reservation.

Dr. McFarlane is new to me as my new primary care, I thought our first appointment went well. I was with Dr. [...] for years and didn't feel as though my concerns were being heard and the communication was not satisfactory at all for me at all and was disappointed because I believe she is a wonderful doctor, I just couldn't get her to hear my concerns. I look forward to working with Dr. McFarlane.

We love Dr. McFarlane and her medical assistants, but not big fans of the reception staff. Most of them are rude and off-putting.

Doctor was good but she didnt seem to understand that my circumstances had led to part of my health issues [...] I just thought she would be more understanding of my situations and borderlined on being judgmental

I had a great relationship with my previous provider, I do not feel any connection to this one. I feel like she sort of listens to me but do not leave feeling like I leave with what I needed. […] I feel like she and I have differing personalities and she is not overly concerned with things that I am. […] After my most recent visit I left very frustrated and have been seeking referrals from friends and will be changing primary care Doctors.

Dr. McFarlane does a wonderful job of listening and counseling about my health concerns. Offers constructive advice on injury and medical issues. Have seen many doctors in the Providence system, she is the best.

It's excellent having Dr. M as my PCP. At times her schedule is quite full and it's difficult to get in if something unexpected comes up.

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.
