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.

Thanks for doing a thorough physical exam that demonstrated the problems causing my left shoulder pain and ordering the required diagnostic tests (XRAY and MRI).

I think follow up to visit could have been better. I was communicated that I will receive a follow up call next day regarding test results which never happened.

my provider was good, but did not know why I had chest pain. I was prescribed antibiotics for sinus infection, but after 5 days, I still had chest pain, went to urgent care, it was determined I had a asthma flair up, due to illness.

I made the appt online for a pre-op physical and some issues (depression, incontinence and ear issue). I noticed it was for 20 minutes so I called the office and explained that I needed more time as it was not just for they physical. I was assured that they would note it and I would be able to cover my issues. When Dr. Samagh came in the very first thing she said is that we couldn't talk about my other issues and my physical would take up all of our time. I explained my call to the office and she said that she didn't have the time and that would make other patients wait. One of the issues is with depression and anxiety. I filled out the questions that the nurse gave me and briefly showed them to Dr. Samagh when she ask if my depression was an emergency. Well, I'll tell you it is severe and I am seeking other medial advice. I am so unhappy with the service and will not be coming back to the Dr. I have seen for 10 years. The office staff and my Dr. let me down, very badly.

10/16/2016
Dr. Samagh has been our doctor for 10 years. We felt right from the beginning she cared about our health and wanted to spend time with us to ask us questions and then we asked her questions. We were in much better health then and she has seen me through some very hard illness and surgery. We rely on her completely. She always refers us to specialists if she feels it is necessary.

Dr. Samagh always spends as much time as I need. She explains thing to me in language that I can understand. She never talks down to me. She never makes me feel like she is superior to me. If she were not my doctor and I knew her, I think she would stillo be someone Iwould consider a friend.

08/14/2016
Dr Samaagh left the room without notifying us that she wont be back to us again and we expect her return and waiting her come back to the room ask for the last question. We ever visited other care provider and we noticed that they have a similarities whereby they left the patient without being informed us (NO RETURN TO THE ROOM) and we suggest it's better they check with us eg likes, DO YOU HAVE ANY LAST QUESTION FOR ME BEFORE WE END THE SESSION? we will feel more comfortable and satisfying

[...] the dr I saw on this day, clearly was ready to be done with her day. she was short, cold and didn't want to hear what I had to say. [...] this was the worst experience I have ever had. I felt I was a major inconvience to the dr. and that I should not have gone in to be seen. the nurses and staff are always very nice. hopefully lessons can be learned here. when this dr was done, she simply walked away, I did not know if she was coming back or not. very, very rude.

Both Dr. Samagh and her assistant spoke over me and weren't very good listeners. I had to repeat myself several times. Dr. Samagh was busy typing on the computer and seemed very preoccupied. I felt very rushed. She misdiagnosed a skin rash. I am looking for another doctor since I feel no confidence or trust that she can give me the respect and care I deserve.
