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 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.

Have found a very consistent level of sensitivity, expertise and interest in my overall well-being over the years that Dr. John Ramsey has been my PCP; And, when he has been unavailable, the backup caregivers that have been involved reflected a similar attitude and sensitivity

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.
