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.

Each time I go in I end up waiting for at least 20 mins, onetime 45. Then my appointment is only 5 mins long. I finally have access to Mychart (after 6 months) and it upsets me that what is written in my charts is not what happened in my appointment. I always leave my appointments feeling as though I am leaving without any information. […] This is my first time pregnant and information is what I need. I feel as though stuff should be gone over in a routine matter rather then "Do you have any questions". […] This is what has led me to leave my provider at 6 1/2 months pregnant and go to a midwife. […] Another thing is when trying to access my charts/ pay bills it seem that my information is never entered in the system so I have to call in and give my information all over again. […] It is very frustrating and seems very unprofessional. […]
