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.

Dr. Stephens is one of the most caring, personable doctors that I have ever had. I feel like we're good friends and I can talk with her about anything even though I know that she has many other patients that she tends. She is a very special person.

I loved the opportunity to meet with the Doctor of Pharmacology along with Dr. Elizabeth Stephens, my endocrinologist. My recent visit was the MOST comprehensive medical visit I've ever had due to this new team approach to care. I left my appointment better educated and more confident about my Type I diabetes management because we were able to have a frank, specific conversation about areas where I'm doing well and those needing more attention. I have recommended Dr. Stephens to anyone in need of endocrinology care and her expert, professional approach to medicine is precisely why. I'm so grateful she's my doctor with her wonderful medical team.
