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 keep having problems with getting my prescriptions renewed. My prescription provider said that my doctor has declined. My MD does not answer my questions but defer me for later but I don't always get a response. This has happened more than a few times. My MD also doesn't address all my concerns like my hip and back pain... is it arthritis, side affect of statins,or something else. MD forgetful?

12/25/2016
The nurse during this appointment was not accustomed to children. She was not knowledgeable on child development. She did not know how to respond to a child which was uncomfortable. The nurse doing a well child check and administering shots should be comfortable with kids or the appointment needs to be rescheduled.

I love and greatly respect Dr. Rashid and everyone at Providence. I greatly appreciate that she doesn't push medications and helps encourage me to exercise more and watch what I eat.

She missed diagnosing my broken wrist. Gave me antibiotics as a precaution, but did not have me get an x-ray as a precaution.
100

Turned out I needed a simple procedure, so Dr Rashid worked it into her schedule while I was there, so I didn't need to make a follow-up appointment. I greatly appreciated this -- saved me time and money.

Dr Rashid is very easy for me to talk with.

[...] Dr Rashid is as good a doctor as I have had ,responsive, concerned, communicative, I could go on. However, I am not clear on the check up itself, it seems very cursory, kind of a " size up " the patient approach as opposed to the more detailed "inspection" I have had during past physicals. [...]

01/26/2016
One problem has been having people on staff to answer the phone when I call. I have called several times over several weeks when the phone rang and rang and then I was "on hold" for 20 minutes or more. The phone was never answered. One time I drove down to the office to schedule an appointment because no one was answering the phone. That was very frustrating.
100

01/26/2016
Dr Rashid was attending to an emergency with another patient, which is why she was late to my appointment. I greatly appreciated that her staff explained the reason for the wait, and kept me updated. I understand that these things happen, and did not mind waiting at all because I was treated respectfully.
