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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

I liked Dr Megan Smith much more than my regular doctor, so hopefully I will be able to see Dr. Smith instead in the future for my regular care.

Dr Smith has excellent skills at listening to the patient and speaks with confidence. She maintains a professional demeanor yet makes a personal connection with the patient. she explains things in a clear and concise manner and takes the time to hear what the patient has to say. I feel very comfortable with her and she is very reassuring. the best doctor I have had in years.

I was Dr. Smith's first patient on her first day at Providence, and we've always had a warm and rather special relationship, much more friendly and open than is typically the case. She's wonderful about taking the time necessary to cover all my questions and issues and to explain her logic relating to a particular recommendation or treatment. I can't say enough nice things about her.

Excellent and thorough knowledge of my medical history and also how my history relates to my current and ongoing medical issues. Great assessment of my current medical issues and she also requested that I follow up in several weeks or sooner as my condition warrants. Extremely professional and respectful.

Dr. Smith is the care provider for my entire family. She is incredibly intelligent, kind, and communicates information in an easy to understand way. I am confident seeing her for any condition because I know that if she is uncomfortable treating me, she does not hesitate to refer me to an appropriate provider.

Dr Smith always does what she is supposed to do. I'm happy with her. when I checked into her office on [...], the receptionist who "helped" me check in was very unpleasant person to deal with. [...] I shared my experience with Dr Smith's medical assistant. I must say there are so many other people out there who are looking for jobs who would appreciate having a job than this lady at Dr Smith's office's front desk.

This was my first visit to Dr. Smith and I liked her very much tho I was hoping to have one dr and not have to go to a pain clinic but I respect her wishes to avoid prescribing that and am being seen at a pain clinic for that care. Dr. Smith seemed very caring and I could tell she listened to what I was saying.

As with all doctors, mine is quite busy and pretty quick with appointments. Sometimes, I feel like I might not have been able to discuss my health as thoroughly as I would like, but, in retrospect, the doctor gives me appropriate time and attention. She is very friendly and puts me at ease.
