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 Walsh was confident about my heart flow and ordered the stent surgery the next day! He can tell you better than I can. [...] The confidence I had to overcome this situation came from everyone in the Medical Arena. Thank you for doing what you enjoy and I and my Wife are great full forever.

Ease of scheduling a follow up appointment within the time framework provider suggested is problematic. Asked to set up a 6 month follow-up, but scheduling said is was "too early". This is the second time I've encountered this issue; last time my appointment ended up 60 days past the 6 months, and I had to drive from Sherwood to Vancouver for appointment or it would have been another 45 days.

Some confusion arose because the doctor thought he was giving me good news and he was not able to hear why I was so concerned about my echoes. When I told him of my family history [...] he did not stop to hear that and respond reflectively. He said that I was overdoing my reaction to the echo numbers. [...] I liked him as a person and don't want to come down too hard on him, but if he listens more to the next patients it will be a good thing for him. [...]

I thought I should have an EKG done at the visit since I have had two events. When I asked why he did not do an EKG he said it is because you are doing so well. So I think my last EKG was done the first of the year and I do not return to Dr. Walsh for a year. I think he is a good doctor but I was concerned.

Dr Walsh is a caring, patient and thorough care giver. He covers most of my questions without asking. He knows his patients. If I have a question he explains the problem in such a way that one can understand. The office is well run and plesasant.

One complaint - Dr. did not fully explain all test results, even though he deemed some findings inconsequential should fully explain ALL test findings, minor though they may be.

Dr Wash has been my husband's cardiologist for over ten years. When I experienced issues with cholesterol and intolerance to statin drugs I sought his help. He is working to get me to a therapeutic level of a statin drug, and it is working. I appreciate all he has done for my husband and what he is currently doing for me.
