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.

dr Nayak is a wonderful provider. I enjoy our visits. [...] The auto generated letters sent that say "we care about your health..records show you need tests...as a courtesy we will send prescription for 30 days," sound a bit threatening and should not be sent to patients until after the period of time that their insurance allows them to come for annual Evals. I received one 30 days before the year waiting period required by my insurance, and one a week AFTER I had been in for my annual exam. I'm not sure what would be a better system, just thought you might want to change the parameters regarding when they are sent. Thank you for your efforts to focus on prevention and maintaining health rather than just treating disease. I do appreciate that focus. [...]

Extremely hard to get an appointment especially during an illness. My appointment last week due to an illness and recommended that I see m primary doctor 2-3 days after my urgent care visit, was not easy to get. I ended up taking an appointment we had scheduled for three weeks for my husband, but now he is another three weeks out for his appointment. my biggest complaint with this clinic is availability of appointments. seem to always be referred to urgent care if ill. if you can get in, it is not with your primary doctor and time choices are rare. [...] I love my physician but do not get to use her on short notice (when ill) mostly just for physicals and routine care which I do not need often.

I felt like I have had good care from this provider in the past, but that she has given up on me.

10/17/2016
My knee pain got a lot worse after the examination (and is still giving me a lot of increased trouble more than a week later) - and specifically I have increased pain at the sites where the doctor applied pressure in order to see where the problems were. I understand that this may have been necessary as part of attempting to make a diagnosis - but it's still a terrible thing to go through. Also, when I looked at my after visit summary, I saw that it said I was a long term user of insulin - but I have never used insulin. When I brought this to the doctor's attention, she said it was a computer error - but don't humans put the info. into the computer? [...] In general, I believe the medical practititoners at Providence are good.

I mentioned that I was still having problems with pain in my foot, even though the X-rays showed no problems. I indicated the pain was such I felt I could just work through it. She said "no" that was unacceptable and arranged for P.T. and an appointment with a foot specialist. I am now wearing an ankle brace that is alleviating my pain.

Alice Nayak is by far the best doctor I've ever had. She is professional, knowledgeable, and an excellent doctor. She is also caring, empathetic, and compassionate. She always knows my medical history and facts about my family, etc. before arriving to the appointment, and she is very proactive about treatments I might need.
