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.

Very professional made everything easy and stress free.

He's very understanding about how you feel. He did a great job on my surgery

I had a very long surgery and am recovering very good.

I usually go to Dr Partfast once a year for this medical problem to make sure the stints are okay. He has always been very good. Also the lady that does the Ultrasound is very good.

I saw this doctor for a follow up exam after being hospitalized. Dr. was cordial and I am happy to have seen him.

Everything has been good. I just have not heard back yet as to the surgery schedule.

Very thorough.
