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.

Dr Thompson was available to see me 2 weeks sooner than my own Dr [...], so, even though I didn't get in for 4 days after the injury, I'm so thankful I didn't have to wait for those 2 more weeks!

He is very knowledgable of what's going on. He did spend time with me and listened to me. I just remember I waited awhile in the waiting room for him.

Dr. Thompson is a god send as he seems to know exactly how to quickly diagnose and treat his patients and is up to date on all illnesses and respiratory symptoms associated with viruses in the Portland metro area. I appreciate him being my doctor.

My appointment was at 11:00. I arrived at 11:02. I was not taken back to an exam room for another 10-15 minutes and had to wait until 11:45 because the doctor took a walk in at 11 because I WAS LATE. I don't think that I was "late" arriving 2 minutes past my appointment time, but the lag time between when I checked in and when I was taken back to the exam room could have made him think I was late. I felt I got blamed for being late when in fact it was staff delay that caused me to not be put in an exam room immediately.

The people in this office have all been great. I was forced to change providers 2.5 years ago when my previous Internist left the practice. In hindsight I was lucky. This office is friendlier, faster and more professional. If I had known, I would have moved sooner.

The physician did not listen very well and this led to the need for a followup visit 48 hours later with an urgent care clinic. The visit that this survey is in regards to was not great, but the staff and other physicians at this location have been great!

He acknowledged and addressed my concerns which I really appreciated. However, I would've liked a bit more explanation on my test results. I kind of felt like I got the brush off when they came back pretty much normal.
