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 just never felt the provider took my concerns serious. She ordered x-rays which came back fine. So what is my next step? I still have a problem with my foot, and no next steps were discussed. [...]

Appointments are easily made for the near future. From checkin to appointment to blood draw, the process is always smooth and rapid (can usually complete all aspects in 1 hour or less for routine visits). All staff interactions are positive and responsive, and I love the MyChart communications which include my lab results. Very happy with this clinic, staff, and PA specifically--she is excellent. Very knowledgeable, seems current with evidence based medicine, relateable, approachable (even for things beyond the scope of the scheduled appointment topic), and timely. I've actually moved farther away and will continue to return based on the positive interactions I have had here so far.

I did note at the time of check in that there is always little to no eye contact. Not so friendly. Always polite, though.

Forgot to put in blood draw orders, went to lab on a work day & couldn't get done that day due to no orders.

Limited options to a horribly cough. I ended up treating myself with an inhaler that was not offered at this visit but one I had used in the past. Dr. [...] is my main provider and I feel when I have to use someone else I don't get the same care.

The time with the PA did not start out well, I felt there was some tension between us and it made me uncomfortable. It could be I was in a great deal of pain and was overly sensitive but i looked at her and expressed my feelings. The entire atmosphere of the appointment changed dramatically and she seemed to "drop down a knotch" from task mode to listen mode. After that the appointedment progressed very well and she actually did help me quite a bit.

Sheryl and her team were absolutely amazing and very supportive in a time of need. Having moved to the Portland area more recently, I started to feel "down" due to the sun not shining for weeks on end; along with a number of other changes going on in my life [...]. Sheryl and her team sat with me and talked about attending [...] support groups (which I have now signed up for), continuing to get exercise and fresh air daily and continuing to meet new folks. The way I felt when I walked into the office was completely different from how I felt when I walked out. Thank you Sheryl and team!

This is by far the worst medical provider I have ever met. I felt like I was being interrogated by the police. [...] She did not listen well, offer me time to explain my clinical situation, nor did she seem to understand the medications being provided for me. She came to improper conclusions [...]

My provider listened to me and ordered routine bloodwork I need to manage a chronic disease. However, when it came time to refill a medication prescribed by a specialist as a permanent therapy, she decided that she knew better than my allergist and did not want to refill the medication. I definitely got the impression of the "gatekeeper" role [...]

Sheryl was a wonderful doctor and very attentive. I have zero problem with her. I have, however, had a terrible time getting a referral to see a sleep specialist. It's been over a week since I saw the doctor and I haven't heard a thing about my sleep problems.
