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.

Katy was late coming in to see me however the MA did a great job of keeping me informed and giving me time frames. Once Katy came into the room, she immediately apologized for the wait. She took her time with me and I didn't feel that I was being rushed at all. Katy is great!

MA- [...] was very kind and caring. Provider Katy not only saw me for my appt reason but also for some other concerns that had just happened. I did not feel rushed or ignired.

I had an acute illness. I called to speak with an advice nurse and was transferred to Katie. She was awesome. She pulled up my chart and asked lots of questions. She listened to my answers and arranged for me to be seen that afternoon. She examined me & ordered tests. She reassured me. I am better now, but I sure appreciate all that she did for me.

It was my impression that this provider didn't know how to address my High Blood Pressure in consideration of my other health issues. It seemed that this provider did not believe the correct functioning of my home blood pressure machine because my blood pressure records were so high. [...]

Katy was outstanding. She was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and empathetic. She smiled, was very expressive, super friendly, had an upbeat "can-do" attitude. She's much better than all the doctors I've ever seen at the clinic. She's very down to earth. I liked her a lot. I haven't met anyone else in traditional medicine as warm and friendly as her. [...]

I usually see Dr. [...], who is also great, and Katy takes wonderful care of me when I can't get in with Dr. Gluck. Also took my toddler to Dr. [...] recently because he was the only one available, and really liked him as well.
