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.

I felt like the Doctor thought that my symptoms were imagined or nothing to worry about. [...] I assumed that he felt that I was a complainer. My symptoms have never been worse than they were prior to this annual visit. And I was concerned enough to make my appointment early. He did order a heart monitor to wear for 48 hours unfortunately I did not have any of the issues that cause me concern while wearing it.

He seemed in a hurry, but he did cover the material well. Also seemed to know his work very well.

Providence Health & Services Patient

This way my first visit to this clinic and doctor. He made a very good 1st impression.
Providence Health & Services Patient

Actually, the visit was based on prior testing, which Dr. Rahimtoola was my consultant, and did give me peace of mind concerning the heart involvement in my syncope problem. So it was a very positive experience. Dr. R. has been my husband's cardiologist for several years, and he respects his judgement.
