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.

She seemed distracted by her pager. She was paged once during my appt. Was she concentrating on me or them? Seemed very bright/competent.

It's hard to imagine how Dr. Shields could be any better as a doctor. I feel incredibly fortunate that she's my doctor. She's excellent. She's so knowledgeable. She explains things and answers questions in a way I can understand. She always knows what I'm talking about even when I'm unsure myself! She's very kind.

Dr Shields is the best doctor I have ever seen....I have always hated going to the doctor but she is such a great doctor and person that I am more apt to go just because it is her

The care team here has always been very easy to talk to. They have provided both information and physical care in a extremely helpful manner. They have been appropriately forceful in making sure I follow through with the care that has been prescribed in a way that I have been very thankful for

She takes the time to listen. Always has wonderful helpful suggestions, and I feel like she genuinely care about my health & me as a person. Fantastic doctor!

Dr. Shields is amazing. She knows my medical history very well and listens to me without making me feel as though I am paranoid or bothering her. She is very open with me and gives me encouragement!!!

The place is clean and well maintained. Good atmosphere on the waiting area.

Dr. Sheilds looked at her watch (Apple watch,) ran out of the office mid chatting to apparently take a phone call from home. She had stated that it was her babysitter calling and finally returned to the exam room 26 minutes later. My appointment was scheduled for 2:00pm, I was finally taken to the exam room at 2:36. For what I thought was a routine visit the time was horrible. I was at this visit until 4:45 approx. I am very dissatisfied with this provider and would like to schedule a new appointment with a doctor that is a little more focused and values time.

always good

My medical issue was more urgent that I though, Dr. Shields was attentive and efficient during the exam and also expedited further diagnostic imaging for the same day.

I had financial concerns & she was familiar enough to educate me on the best medical check up I could afford.

Dr. Shields is very thorough and completely invested in her patient's health and welfare. I appreciate her and the whole team!!

Dr. Shields is very thorough. She takes time to explain things in easy-to-understand language. She provides excellent service.

providers need longer appt times. they have too many patients to see in a day.

Never a bad experience always positive.
