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 in the waiting room for 35 minutes after checking in. Went back to desk to inquire and they had not followed procedure so Dr Rashid thought I was late. The nurse treated me terribly because he thought I was late. He said, "You can't walk in here 20 minutes late and expect to get a physical". I told him I had been waiting in the waiting room for 35 minutes. I have never been late and would have called if I were. Dr. Rashid knows me and knows I am never late but Noone checked the waiting room. I wanted to walk out. The nurse made me feel horrible.

Dr. Rashid, to put it simply, is a gem. She is truly a model healthcare provider and she has been, by far, the best doctor I have ever interacted with. Dr. Rashid is extremely patient, kind and creates an environment of safety and positivity. I really can't express how much I appreciate her professionalism, knowledge and general good humor. A+ physician all the way!

I have an excellent care provider in Dr. Rashid. In my last visit there was a snafu in the reception area and I didn't see the doctor until after a 30 minutes wait. In retrospect, I should have checked with reception as to why the wait was so long.

I presented a problem that was a bit nebulous and could have multiple causes. It wasn't entirely clear to Dr. Rashid what the issue was, but rather than order a ton of unnecessary tests, she noted a couple of possibilities that were likely given my current meds/labs. She asked me to make small adjustments to see if they would be helpful. She also indicated that there could be other, more serious, issues and asked me to check back with her in two weeks if I didn't see improvement. I've noticed Dr. Rashid always goes with the simplest/most obvious possibility and doesn't just pile up labs/referrals "just to be on the safe side." I really appreciate this approach! I always feel that she's listened and is being respectful of my concern, but she isn't overreacting and wasting my time and money.

Dr. Rashid did something different that other doctors I have seen have, she did not give me another drug to take, and fallowed up everything we talked about to the letter.

I love Dr. Rashid! I was nervous to tell her some things about my personal health and she was very kind and most important - OBJECTIVE. It is so important to me to have non-judgmental doctor, she gave me a professional and informed response and I felt safe disclosing anything relevant to my health. She also seems like she educates herself on recent research and she's never offended me or made me feel uncomfortable. I always ask for her when I come to this clinic!

I had been a patient for a couple of years and had comfort and trust with this provider until my mental health deteriorated severely in [...]. I had received some much needed help from a Naturopath who I can no longer see due to insurance issues. Wanting to maintain consistency with medical records to the best of my ability, I wanted to come back to Dr Rashid. I have been having trouble with my [...] and was unsure if Ibuprofen was OK to take with my current medications. I had wanted to return to Dr Rashid for continuing care which would require that I get her up to date on what we'd found at the Naturopath and what medication I'd been taking. She genuinely seemed uninterested in obtaining this info and ignored me when I said I couldn't see the Naturopath. I can't tell you how disappointed I was. I won't be returning with the exception of using the lab services.

I appreciate Dr. Rashid's habit of looking for the simplest diagnosis and the simplest treatment. While she always explains a number of possible diagnoses for my symptoms, she isn't wasting my time and money checking every crazy possibility. She appears to try very hard to stay current on medical science, which is a challenge, and always provides well-reasoned explanations for her conclusions.
