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.

Dr. Stephens is my absolute favorite - however I was not told before I scheduled my appointment that on Thursdays they do Team Clinic so my appointment was longer than normal making me late for work and I spoke with the pharmacist mostly - I would have just like to have known about the team clinic scheduling so I could have planned better

Dr. Stephens has been a wonderful provider for many years. When she moved to the PACE clinic, I actually chose to go "out of network" and pay more to be able to stay in her care.
