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.

She's a textbook, listening only for key words. doesn't ask clarifying questions. just makes her own determination.

She was incredibly knowledgeable, very thorough in my most recent test results, and made a few well done changes to my current Rx's, and quite a few insights that both offended, and then soon after, enlightened me.

Even though she was busy, she took the time out to listen to me on any medical concern.

I appreciated the doctor's patience in answering my questions and her thoroughness in the exam and reviewing test results.

Caring, listens and explains well and not araid Caring, listens good and not afraid to send to another specialist if needed.
