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.

I like the technology of the portal where I have my labs done and available to me in the portal a few days before my check up with Dr. Nayak so I have already seen my lab results when I see him and can come prepared with any questions about them.

I like my doctor very much, but I feel he is not listening to me because he is entering information in the computer during the entire visit. He seems to be in a hurry and I leave feeling I dissatisfied with the visit. I don't get my questions fully answered. I need him to sit facing me and to listen to my questions as though they matter. [...] I always log onto 'My Chart' and send him a question. I get a response within the next day or two and it is usually most satisfactory.

Dr Navin Nayak is so kind and thorough. I was getting low on my prescription and he refilled it before I could get in for an appointment. my husbands dr will not do that. it made my life a lot less stressful because I didn't need to switch everything around to get in there in order to get my prescription refilled!!!

I had a late afternoon appointment and I needed to have an x-ray and labs so I had to hurry to make it to the lab before they closed, so I didn't spend much time with Dr. Nayak. He tried to squeeze everything into one visit though. He did follow up and personally called me in about 2 days with results and I appreciated that.
