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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

Dr. Babaie is compassionate, attentive and very reassuring. I have complete confidence in him as a cardiologist.

My problem was with a pacemaker that did not seem to work properly for my needs as a athletic person. Sensor settings were questioned which actually are very complex. At some point the doctor handed me the technical manual so I could understand what we were trying to do and maybe even could contribute to this complex process (I am a Physicist with Engineering experience). Together (mainly the Technician and I) we were able to likely solve the problem. I think this was the best thing a doctor could do and I am very thankful that he acted so open and trustworthy to me. This is the best example I ever experienced of a doctor engaging the patient in participating in critical decisions!

individual providers where great but the "system" is over subscribed. long wait times, barriers to interaction with providers because of this. Difficult to change incorrect medications on the computer despite telling the different persons doing the updates on multiple occasions able to get referrals, but Schedualling with cardiologist even in the time period he wanted not possible. scheduler said all I could do was "have a low threshold for coming to the emergency room" [...]
