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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

Dr. Ramsey quite empathetic.

i sent a message on my chart for dr ramsey. it was concerns about a medication that i have been directed to take. i got a call back from the office saying the dr would like me to come in for a visit.

Dr. Monica Ramsey is a smart, kind and attentive doctor, everything I could want particularly as I am aging.

This was my first visit w/Dr. Monica Ramsey - She is now my [...] primary physician. I am thrilled to be under her excellent supervision.

Monica is a caring, professional and a great doctor.

Dr Ramseyhas helped me through some very serious health issues with understanding, support and action.

I don't think she is the right provider for me. I am a change behavior first and see what happens over time type of patient. She is more a prescription drug first doctor. She doesn't give behavioral change enough time to work nor does she really show interest in it. I had to point her that a few things improved a lot such as weight, blood pressure. You would think when you wait almost 45 minutes after your appointment that she would have reviewed your information.... not at my last visit.

Dr. Monica Ramsey was very thorough & took the time to address all my concerns & issues.

DR. Monica Ramsey is so wonderful after last doctor I had.

Dr. Monica Ramsey was very good. She communicates well and follows up through email. I got all my test results on email too which made it so much quicker than other providers I've had. I'm very happy with her.

Dr Monica Ramsey is very through! Evwn though she may be running behind or busy she Always makes you feel like she has time for you and appointments don't feel rushed. She is a great listener,calm and you can see the compassion in what she does! I would recommend to anyone!

all positive

She was very nice and caring, concerned about my health!

I feel she always has my back.

Dr. Ramsey is always perceptive to my needs/questions. She really seems to care about my well being and feelings. Awesome Doc!

I would like to see less computer & more personal conversation.

This was to establish care with this provider. Did not have enough time to cover all questions. Also, I had first appt. in the morning, so that allowed for no wait time.

It seems to be hit or miss with this provider. Sometimes she takes the time to hear me and other times not. And I never feel she is prepared with my medical history.

Service--very good

Sometimes I don't hear back from her until the end of the day when it's too late to get prescriptions.

Dr Monica Ramsey uses my time with her asking questions regarding my health and any health questions I may have. She is very knowledgeable!

Dr Ramsey knows me and we make a great team

when i first went to dr.monica ramsey i was impressed, i had never had such a thorough exam got my son to schedule with dr. john ramsey
