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.

This clinic is my first choice in heart care.
Providence Health & Services Patient

Dr. Simkoff was great. He listened carefully to the answers to the questions he asked. He explained carefully what he thought my condition was, and why he needs more tests to figure out how to fix it.

I like and respect Dr. Simkoff and feel confident that I'm getting good care and advice from him.

Very satisfied
Providence Health & Services Patient

I wrote to the doctor thru "Mychart" 5 days ago, but received no reply as of now. I'm scheduled for surgery in 9 days, but will not have surgery unless the doctor addresses my concern. In the past, trying to talk to the doctor over the phone is almost impossible.

everything and everyone that I was involved with was very nice.
