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 doctor talked over me, not listening to my major concerns, had not requested prior chart notes prior to the appointment, just didn't seem to have time or concern to listen to me. at first he said I would have to order any previous chart notes. then at the end of the visit said the front desk would do that.

I was disappointed that the provider ordered a test that was irrelevant based upon my medical history (in my records), and didn't ask about my current lifestyle habits to determine my needs before requesting the test, and also didn't tell me which tests he was ordering while I was in the office so I could re-educate him about my situation.

Please note that I would rather wait longer for my doctor in the exam room knowing that he will spend what time is needed with me. And that means that he was spending quality time with his previous patient. So, no docking of time I had to wait in the exam room for him.

Dr. David Solondz is the finest Doctor I have ever met. Every Doctor should strive to provide the excellent, thorough, empathetic, thoughtful, and quality care that Dr. Solondz has always provided me.
