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.

I had a follow up pap this year due to an HPV diagnosis last year, records had me down for a 3 yr follow up when in fact it was a yr, after this pap Dr Reays message to me was that the HPV came back negative, however in reading my chart, I did not see that so I sent her questions, she then responded that what she received was wrong, in fact I was positive again and that the bad reports had occurred to her 4 x and that she thought it could be an I.T. issue! after 2 different issues with my chart notes, clearly there maybe an issue with records, I'm now questioning whether my blood work is accurate as well. I love Dr Reay, have been seeing her off and on for nearly 20 yes so my issue is not with her but rather reports, charting and documentation that could affect someone's health negatively

I have never been treated with such condensation and disrespect by this provider and a specialist I was referred to years ago by this provider. They worked hard to burn a decades old relationship that I highly valued. following providers' directives is ambiguous and destructive. I am going to seek other care provision and/or another insurance network if necessary.

when I had a UTI earlier this year, it took a very long to get the results and medications. It took a long time to get this UTI cleared up. I did consider going to a urologist because it took so long to get my results. I was not happy about this.

When our son and daughter-in-law left San Francisco (the end of her Residency, his Post-Doc position) they were not sure they were moving to. We planned to follow. One of our major concerns was our health care - Dr Reay has been exceptional with both of us and our relatives. We breathed a real sigh of relief when they came here. My wife and I do not think we could find a better primary care physician.

[...] the reason Dr. Reay couldn't spend more time with me was that she had an emergency happen at the same time with another patient. [...] Dr. Reay took care of my immediate problem, but we did not have time to chat about anything else. I was not upset or unhappy about it.

I had questions about the birth control she prescribed and she pretty much told me she didn't know enough about it to offer up an alternative, except to try to push the IUD on me. Which she does every time I'm in the office and every time I tell her no. I don't know why she accepted my appointment when I told the scheduler why I was coming in. [...]

I do not have a single negative experience with Dr Reay or her staff. She is by far the best doctor I have ever had in my 83 years. She cares and she listens. Having worked for a doctor about 20 years ago his advice was "if a doctor cares, he will listen to you and if he doesn't listen, change doctors because it's a sign of not really caring". That has been a philosophy I have followed for many years. Dr Reay has a calling and is wonderful. I leave an appointment knowing I have been cared for.

I always get an excuse for her to leave in a hurry, so I made a 40 minute appt and still was cut short. Always in the past she was great about answering questions etc, but for the past year or so I'm always cut short [...] only 5 min. spent face to face.

I've been Dr.Raeys patient for 5 years with mostly good experiences with her. however this visit was not the case. She quite frankly insulted me and was in no means empathetic as any care provider should be when dealing with patients. I'm a retired RN with 30 years of patient care experience. It is not appropriate to take your bad day out on a patient. She was terrible and I have switched primary care providers because of this bad experience. I left the room crying and that shouldn't happen to a patient seeking care.

I am going on 66. In my lifetime of seeing physicians I have never had the kind of attention or care that Dr. Reay and PA [...] have shown to me. I feel safe to share my inner most fears with two, and feel they really do care about me. the type of people that Dr. Reay and [...] are are the kind of people I need in my life. I pray these two people can care for me the rest of my life!

02/07/2017
I continue to be irked that this provider's schedule does not accurately reflect how long she spends with each patient. Her schedule needs to account for that so that patients do not have to wait so long to see her after their scheduled time. She thinks I have high blood pressure; no, I'm just totally [...] at the amount of time I have to wait after I arrive at the office.
