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.

As a cancer survivor himself, Dr. Weizer is familiar with the issues created by treatment: physical side effects, emotional and mental effects, and supplements and foods that help the body overall.

Dr. Ken is the only doctor out of the 20 that I've seen that ACTUALLY listened to what I had to say. He never told me thatthe pain was "in my head" or that I was crazy. He told me, in fact, I was right all along and that the other doctors just didn't know what they were talking about. I finally got some hope and sanity back into my life. I'm now on the road to recovery thanks to Dr. Ken. If it wasn't for him, I would still be on dangerous medications that were masking my symptoms instead of addressing the root cause of my problem

My only complaint is new receptionist. Rude, walks VERY slowly and makes you wait for her. Does not smile, is not upbeat. Actually rude sums her up.

Ken Weizer provides excellent care & is a good listener. I would like to see his services & those of integrative care in general recommended and discussed by other physicians. I needed to "sleuth" out the facility & services on my own.

The dr. was really insensitive & pushy. He gave me a supplement that has say in it even though I told him I don't tolerate it well. He said it was basically in my head [...] & needed to get over it and try soy. Tried the supplement, gave me abdominal cramping.
