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.

She is very down to earth and takes the time to make eye contact and show genuine concern when warrented. Her f/u on past issues is very reassuring.

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.

I'm not satisfied with the provider and feel like it may be time to see a provider with more experience. Some things should be able to be taken care of in the office rather than being referred to another provider. To me, this means making another appointment and the costs associated.

I didn't feel a lot of compassion/understanding, it felt like I was being lectured or talked down to. I felt that there was more time spent collecting information and entering into the computer than actually talking and trying to find a solution to my medical issues.

She is fine, just always in a hurry. I think she's adequate but nothing special.
