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.

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.

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.
