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.

Dr. Vogt has excellent bedside manner: he is professional, listens carefully and empathically, allows the time needed to answer all questions and answers thoroughly. If he is uncertain of something he says so and is willing to help find the information. He is conservative re. tests and treatments, that is, he recommends those he feels are needed but explains why it's best not to pursuie those that will be of no help addressing the problems. He works as a partner in my health care. He tells me what he thinks and what he recommends and, when possible, offers choices, presenting the pros & cons of each. I am grateful that he is my primary care provider.

Dr Vogt is always very thoughtful when answering questions and explaining his advice. however, I found that his office cancels appointments often, and are not reliable in following-up when they say they will be calling with information. This is quite inconvenient and causes extra trips for the patient.

Dr. Vogt is an outstanding internist. I am a [...] and moved to the gorge 12 years ago. In looking for my own PCP I chose Dr. Vogt because of how he referred people to me and the medical care that he provided to to these people. I have a complex medical history and he has done a fabulous job of helping me take care of myself. The office and nursing/assistant staff are likewise very competent and delightful.

Dr. Vogt always pays attention to issues I bring up and addresses those concerns with me while I'm there. If something is outside the scope of his expertise, he does not hesitate to refer me to a specialist. He is quick to order any blood work or other tests that might help us figure out what's going on. He is conscientious about the overall plan for my complete health, taking into account my history as well as how I'm doing now.

Why fill out the sheet with what problems you want to talk with MD about when it is ignored? During this visit he seemed to be in a hurry and didn't take the time he normally does with me. I have had excellent care in the past with Dr. Vogt.

I've had a unpleasant experience every time with the receptionist at the doctors office, I thought it might have been just me but when my wife came with me earlier this year she felt the same vibe. I normally don't comment about people like this but it seems that she tries to marginalize the patient. When someone comes to the doctors office their usually there for a reason, not to be made feel dumb or uninformed.
