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 met Dr Yao in the hospital cardiology unit as an acute cardiac patient. she since has followed me as an outpatient. i trust her clinical expertise in cardiology. more, she pays attention to every aspect of my care. i am tall, and after days in the hospital with my feet hanging off tbe mattress, when she saw me in bed she immediately recomnended the extension for the bed. all other doctors and all the nursing staff ignored that. just an example of how she makes a difference. thanks, dr yao.

Her transcriptionist was WITH HER. She said it was "normal procedure." I used to be a transcriptionist & I have been to multitudes of various dr. offices in the past year and this IS NOT "normal procedure." I provided confidential info and [...] put it on ALL paperwork for anyone to see which EVERYONE I had to speak with after they mentioned it in one way or another. Very disrespectful and inconsiderate. I'm going to a different dr. & I do not want Dr. Yao to forward any info in which my information was handled. Did not care for the drs. attitude or her lack of knowledge about my medical tests in the past I do no trust her judgment. I d not feel she had my best interest in mind. Very cold & uncaring.

Dr. Lisa Yao is a very fine cardiologist and always is very thorough in analyzing my condition and orders tests to make sure that all is well. I trust her entirely with my heart health and am grateful to have her as my cardiac specialist.

Relationship is new [...] So far, the provider has been excellent. The only frustration I have with provider's office is that when they call to follow-up, calls come through as "No Caller ID" so I do not know who is calling

Dr. Yao asked us why we were there - shouldn't she have known ahead of time?

Intelligent, competent, experienced, pleasantly interactive and very efficient. Made appropriate med changes and test requisitions, with reasoning fully explained. Didn't allow time to address issues other than chief complaint. On this particular visit, didn't exhibit inherent warmth or true empathy and didn't inquire much beyond what I presented to her.

While she asked questions, I don't know if she was actively listening. I left feeling like I wasn't heard and all my concerns weren't addressed. That she was generalizing my symptoms and issues.

I appreciate the fact that they accommodated my need for a stress test before surgery and especially since there was only one day in which to get it done.

I have been really frustrated getting follow up apts in timely basis. when provider says to see them in 2 weeks and you can't get apt go 4-5 weeks I question why I was assigned to provider originally! so frustrating. I don't want to see a PA or new provider on my first follow up visit.

during the visit, excellent. A follow-up question to the nurse provider at the office has gone unanswered for 4 days.
