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 computer was down, and a support staff interacted with me a lot. The doctor came in in the middle of my interactions with the support staff and I did not feel that things came to a closer. I needed to make some adjustments to my pump but that never happened because I think there were too many people in the room. Usually I received a typed summary of my appointment, but I didn't receive anything this time because the computers were down.

EPIC was down during my visit, so there was no way to access my medical records. We worked with what was available, and we decided to start a new treatment option.

Elizabeth Stephens is the best there is. I am intelligent and want to know some of the science behind medical suggestions/recommendations for me. Dr. Stephens explains in the depth I need to feel confident about those decisions. I truly feel "partnered" by her in my medical care. I recently have lost my primary provider [...], and Dr. Stephens recommended 3 people for me to meet/consider. She considered my personality and medical needs in making those recommendations. I was extremely grateful to have some direction in my search.
