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 very pleased with Dr Monica Ramsey's care of me. She is very knowledgeable and she listens. I wish she had more hours in her day because our appointments are carefully timed, but that's just the way it is with healthcare nowadays. I have recommended Dr Monica to several people. [...] I feel as if I am in very capable hands whenever I walk into the exam room. Thank you.

Dr. Monica Ramsey showed a comforting balance between being professional and being empathetic. I felt that she was very efficient in her way of dealing with me as a patient, and yet took the time to understand my health concerns. I've been looking for someone like her for several years now.

Monica was very thorough; in fact, I have never had, in my fifty plus years, an annual exam that consisted of blood work, questions from my head down, and a complete physical. I was impressed. I also recommended Dr. Monica Ramsey to my husband and my thirty-year-old daughter

I did not like what the Doctor had to say, and I feel that we have still not achieved an understanding of the blood pressure issue that I am experiencing. Apparently we have run out of options and have no clar understanding of where to go next. I wish we could determine a better, more timely plan.
