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

Some times weighting time can be exsesve. I attribute that to heavy patient load.

I really appreciate Dr. Chiou and his staff. He seemed to be a bit rushed today, but nonetheless I think he gave me sound advice. I have a flair up with tinnitus, so Dr. Chiou's assistance flushed my affected (right) ear with water. There was a small piece of wax you could see which was being stubborn and wouldn't come loose. She flushed my ear about many times (refilled her squirt bottle about 10 times) and the pressure on my ear was starting to concern me. It hurt a bit, but I didn't want to complain assuming she knew what she was doing. [...]

overall good experience. only complaint would be during scheduling as I requested a female doctor and was scheduled with a male. the provider was easy to work with and addressed my concerns but I would have preferred a female as I requested.

After arriving in exam room, the questions was asked (by P.A.?) In the last few months, have you been feeling depressed/discouraged/sad etc? I answered Yes. No more further questions or concerns came from my Yes answer. It seemed as if the questions had to be asked for recording only and not out of concern.

provider was fine, but for my fasting blood sugar test I had to wait too long I arrived at 7;30 am to wait outside and be the first one as it is difficult for me to be without food ( I am diabetic) they took at least 5 people before me and I had to let them know again that I was waiting. Anyway don't know what to do next time. This was my first apt. with Dr. Chiou as I moved here in Jan.

First time visit and decided immediately because of how well the entire staff and the doctor. They listened and were very clear on explaining what could be done there or elsewhere. I had a referral for a specialist. That was refreshing to have a doctor say not my field and recommended a specialist immediately. I will continue going to Dr. Chiou.

After receiving my x-ray, the Doctor looked over them with me in the room, he did not seem to know what he was looking at and seemed to dismiss me after reviewing them because there where now broken bones. I went and got a second opinion and it was dislocated. I again felt very dismissed. And just because an injury doesn't directly show its self, should not mean a patient should get this kind of treatment.

I filled out a comment card and nboted Dr. Chou's nurse, [...], was very amiss in her communication with me regarding an immediate visit to an ER for a CAT Scan. She failed to answer questions and offered her directions in a very questionable manner.
