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.

I could not be more pleased with Dr. Parshley. She is knowledgeable, very caring and thorough. She listens to me and tries her best to help with any problem. I am blessed!

Dr. Parshley may be a little behind schedule, but it is not upsetting to me. It actually makes me like her more, since if she has to spend a little more time with another patient, she will do the same for me if necessary.

I won't tell anyone else to see her as she is too busy now! I have been upset in the past about wait times, but she has made others wait to treat my issues so I figure fair is fair. I appreciate her care and concerns of my issues.

Scheduling an appointment is too difficult. I missed my initial annual check-up appointment in November (first time in 20 years), and had to wait 2 months to get another appointment, which I then missed because of the snow closures and it was another month before I could get another appointment. This plays havoc with my need for prescription refills, annual labs, and management of chronic health problems--NOT TO MENTION MY INSURANCE COMPANY'S LIMITS ABOUT APPOINTMENTS. I think you over-work your doctors. They should have more openings.

I always wait too long for my appointment 1.75 hours waiting before she saw me. the front desk did not check on me or update me. The MA only checked on me after I was in the room 45 minutes to say Doctor would be right in, I waited another 30 minutes after that.

my care provider is excellent but the office has a policy to where I was inactivated as a patient because I did not see my provider in two years. I think that penalized both healthy and every sick patients. in my case I had been regularly seeing a specialist for health issues. however when I needed to return to dr parsley I had to come back as a new patient. I think this is a very bad policy that encourages the use of emergency or urgent care services.

09/12/2016
my PCP is excellent! currently the only problem I have is I need the referral to see a specialist after the X-Ray. I have sent two emails through My Char on last Wednesday. I haven't received any response so far (today is Tuesday). My doctor also said she'd call me after getting the results from my X-Ray. [...] is very painful, I hope I can get the referral sooner, maybe her nurse can call me soon. She is a wonderful Doctor, I understand she has many many patients.

This was probably one of the best doctor visits I've ever had, and also, I have a real fear of blood tests and your lab techs are the only folks in my 53 years who have successfully managed my tests.

01/26/2016
Dr. Parshely does a excellent job! I value her as a provider. The only thing I can think of that needs improvement is wait time. It was a hour before I was taken to a room and 40 minutes before I saw Dr. Parshely.I'm very healthy and usually only see her once a year for a physical.
