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 am in increasingly terrible pain with my hip. I don't know what to do or where to turn. Dr. R. told me to go for PT. I can't get in to the Physical Therapist until the 11th--and I question whether it is the answer.

I feel most fortunate to be assigned to Dr. John Ramsay (as a new patient coincident with the retirement of Dr. [...]). He is an excellent doctor, most thorough and pleasant, responding to my issues in a professional manner. He is a take charge guy that has earned my sincere respect.

The doctor was, for the most part, businesslike and efficient. While I do not expect empathy, I would appreciate at least a little curiosity or better listening skills. He seemed impatient and deferred all new concerns to my next general physical, yet he wasted some of our limited time citing some questionable preliminary studies which are the kind of popular pseudo-science I would expect from "Dr. Oz" and the like.

Dr. John Ramsey is a knowledgeable internist; I have no beef with him. However, his "team" of M.A's in the back office are very lax in the performance of their duties. [...] Dr. Ramsey is thorouh, but is seriously hampered by the M.As' laissez-faire attitude toward the care of patients.
