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.

I have had nothing but good experiences with all the care providers I have seen at Providence. Everyone who works there is super nice.

Very professional, thorough, and pleasant.

She listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. Seemed to respect me.

I chose this care provider because my main doc (Dr [...]) is often unavailable. I really like Dr [...], but I don't like how hard it is to see her. I have been requesting Dr Nakhai because I can get it. I like her. I got a referral. It was not to the place I wanted. I 'm going to try it out and see if it works for me.

May ask her to be my 15 year old daughter's doctor.

great doctor and great staff

Dr. Nakhai did not have my medical records so she wasn't able to discuss my medical history. But she did a good job discussing my current problems.

She understood what I was going threw and helped me with things to help me better take care of myself.

very thoughtful and caring

She is new. And I thought she was helpful with getting me a subscription that took care of my problem.

She was very understanding and enjoyed my visit, i usually feel uncomfortable when i have any kind of appointments. Thank You!
