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 ask alot of questions about my illnesses and test, etc. I don't think the MA's should be giving out the information as they cannot always answer my questions. In the past at other providers I've had, the RN would call with results and were able to answer my questions and concerns without having to message doctor or provider. I have also been given the wrong information on some test results in the past from this clinic. Shanelle has been very thourough and understanding. I like her as my provider.

The waiting room was clean but it felt like a hospital. (I understand it is a medical facility) I think some people prefer a more comfortable or personal atmosphere for a primary care setting.

Provider listened to me and understood what I was saying. I had a diagnosis within 24 hours of seeing her. I had been going to a different doctor for more than 1.5 years and they did not ever diagnose me.
