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.

I drive some distance to see Dr. Calvert because I think he is a good doctor. I do feel a little rushed during my appointment sometimes. I also would prefer to see him in private, but the last time there was a nurse in there with us and it made me feel uneasy. He also was not certain about if my insurance would cover a flu shot so I did not get one at that visit, in spite of being told I should get one.

In the past I've had mostly positive experiences with Dr. Calvert. My visit this year was unusual. I felt he hadn't spent any time reviewing my medical history. During the visit to address my issue, he recommended a procedure I had already undergone (that he recommended at my previous visit). It was clear that he hadn't looked at my file prior to the visit, which was frustrating. Instead he pulled up my bloodwork (and read over his correspondence with me) while we were sitting together in the exam room. Not sure what happened. Hope it was an isolated incident.

The whole issue with Dr. Calvert is, Dr. Cavlvert never did a complete thorough examination of me. Dr. Calvert did not examine my ears nose or mouth, just checked my lungs from the back side and said no pneumonia. I was in there for congestion and running nose. It was a nasty virus going around.

Dr Calvert is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. I have and will continue to recommend him to friends and family, my nephew and godfather are now his patients. Because of him my application for SSI Disability went very smoothly and I was accepted within record time and my lawyer said that part of the reason was because Dr Calvert was able to put all my other doctors together so that there was only one file instead of 5-6 separate files.
