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.

Shanelle O'Dell was very good. My only hesitation was she is a PA and apparently can not be assigned as my primary care physician.

She spent a good amount of time with me, answered all of my questions and made sure I understood what was going on, anytime I have used MyHealth to email her questions she has gotten back to me within 24 hours. She was also very prompt in getting my test results to me. She is kind and very caring.
