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.

The only issue I had was about a 5 minute wait I had to get checked in. I have trouble standing for any period of time and there were people ahead of me that required a lot of time from the receptionists. I wish there was a way to check in using a smart phone or some other technology so that a routine check in didn't require waiting in line for so long. Once I got to the receptionist I was checked in in less than a minute.
