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.

I have been seeing Dr. Thum yearly for gyn routine care. She is always knowledgeable about her speciality and able to take into account my other diagnoses that affect my gyn system.

Dr. told me to get blood work done but I dont know where or what to ask for or how to even go about doing that. I had asked for the test to be done there and then and it didnt happen. Dr was very late to my appointment (1hr) and then rushed through. I didnt feel very important.

I saw Dr. Thum because the last health care provider, Dr. [...], was extremely difficult to see do to her extremely busy and limited work schedule. After years of struggling to get appointments in a timely manner, I decided to find a new doctor. Dr. Thum took the time to review my mammogram results and gave me handouts that I could take home and read to further understand my mammogram results. I appreciate the fact that I was able to get an appointment in a short amount of time and I look forward to seeing her in the future.

getting the appointment was difficult. I had to call 4-5 times and finally a supervisor put me on a list to be called. I understand this has been fixed but it was very frustrating...it took me 3 months to actually schedule the appointment!
