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.

It would be more convenient for scheduling to take place in the exam room rather than making an extra stop. Dr. Peterson is very good at making me feel comfortable and I really appreciate his light-hearted personality!

I really like that Dr. Petersen is so easy to talk with, especially about helping to decide best course of action, medication options, etc. He's straightforward without being frightening. He pleasantly explains the reality of my medical situation. Really appreciate being able to have such an open, two-way dialog. That's important when you want to be realistic as a person ages.

Dr. Petersen is the perfect Dr.for me. I am a retired cardiac nurse and we had a great time getting to meet each other. He was humerous but careful in his assessment of my cardiac situation. Ordered the right tests, performed the right exams. He gets high points from me. my visit was to get a cardiac referral before endoscopic procedures and at the same time I needed to switch my care from the West side of Portland to the East side.

My lower than stellar ratings came from feeling rushed when in the presence of Dr Petersen. I'm not sure if that feeling came from myself or from Dr. Petersen. maybe from both of us. I often feel that from M.D's.

This was my first time to his new Gresham office and I arrived early allowing time to find it. Found there was no restroom in the waiting area. It turned out to not be a problem and I could have asked to be let go back to the "work" area and use that one but it was a surprise and something to note for future reference.
