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.

I was referred to a specialist for further diagnostics. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to make the appointment or if it would be made for me. (communication) Also, I was not told which tests were or were not made during my visit. I have not received any results if they were... The "C" word was mentioned as a possibility and yet, it took 2 weeks to get a referral. I was left hanging in the meantime.
