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.

Dr. Narus is one of the most caring and tentative providers I've ever had. Not only has he saved my life, but he has saved the lives of other patients that are also close friends of mine. I suffer from several rare and difficult conditions. Many doctors wont even treat me because of it. Yet Dr. Narus took me on without hesitation. Not only has he done everything in his power to help me, but he goes so far above and beyond. To this day he still takes the time to understand my conditions and situations intimately. Dr. Narus makes me feel safe.

Even though he was later than my apt. time as he had an urgent patient ahead of me, it was worth waiting to see him. His staff kept me apprised of the status of his lateness. This was very helpful and reassuring to me and my husband to have them continually keep us informed as to when they anticipated him to come.
