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.

PHS is very well managed. Convenient lab at Bethany get my results on line and PRIOR to office visit. Love MyCharts and Dr Ramsey's prompt replies to queries as well as the permanent records, graphs of health history.

I am actually new to Dr. Ramsey, I came to him for a second opinion on some diagnostics from a previous Doctor, that I was also new to, since I have just changed insurance providers. Dr. Ramsey was quick to earn my trust, he listened to my symptoms, and was knowledgable as well as respectful with his answers. as I said he earned my trust where the previous Doctor had lost it. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

"this provider" was great until my timeslot ended and then he was so concerned about getting to his next patient that he did not do a good job on listening and discussing my remaining concerns and questions. I had filled out the priority checklist at the beginning of the session and he never looked at it and started with #2 ultimately not leaving enough time to adequately discuss my top concern.

The report regarding an ultrasound was just a few words by my physician which gave me no opportunity to inquire about an MRI that was suggested if needed. I know it is more expensive but feel he should have called so I had a chance to discuss the next step.

Explained the need for referral to MA, during in-person visit; it was not passed onto physician. Had to call later to request it. Receptionist that was handling referral request did not seem to care about process or urgency of the matter. Recited a standard phrase instead of listening. [...]

I moved to Portland 4 years ago [...]. I am very happy with the doctor. I feel my health is in good hands. [...] John answered all our questions and concerns. I am seventy two years old and I can honestly say John is the best doctor I have ever meet. He is dedicated and caring of his patients. My son in law has John as his doctor and feels the same way I do.

Dr Ramsey seems to listen carefully as evidenced by the follow up questions he asked. He has such a good demeanor...calm, knowledgeable....I really like him. He made some good suggestions to help me lose weight and commented on the direct link that weight has on overall health...something I already know, of course, but I appreciated that he raised the issue.

Ramsey doesn't explain required tests or the results. He doesn't get back to me personally but has his staff call me. Generally, a PA sees me or my husband who we really like!

I was shocked and very pleased that the Doc himself called me at 9pm on a Friday night to discuss results of some lab work and a CT scan. That made the difference to me between getting medical care, and being cared for.
