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.

The provider was pleasant enough but you are certainly rushed through the process and solutions are always about what pills you can take instead of talking through alternate solutions

Dr. Smith was excellent. She thought that my previous doctor may have misdiagnosed me, and she ordered tests to check. Dr. Smith was correct, and she took me off my previous medication. Dr. Smith had concern for my mental health as well as my physical health. She talked to me about lifestyle changes in addition to prescribing new medication.

I have been in severe pain for 2 months. It took 3 visits to get an x-ray ordered, & of course, as I already knew, I have problems.
