About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (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. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

I first came to Doctor Annable because I needed a doctor that cared about me as a person. He was my father's doctor and he was 100 1/2 when he passed away so obviously Doc A is great!

Dr Annable has been my primary doctor for years and he is excellent. Sometimes hard to get appointment, I am sure because he is so good at what he does. I have never had a doctor like him, that takes the time to talk, listen and check things (tests, x-rays, etc). The gal that usually works the back office with him, don't recall her name, she is great too. Takes vitals and listens to reason why you are there and really knows what she is doing. the gals at the front desk are really busy and that is probably why they are a little hard to deal with, they are in a hurry. I have been with Annable for years and plan to continue with him, he is excellent!!!

Dr. Annable is great but talks far too much. His office staff does NOT get on getting the prescription information to the pharmacy. It makes more than 24 hours. Last 2 times I called to ask them to do it. This time, it has been 4 days, I am not bothering calling.

he's able to take care of my skin cancer because he's a surgeon making this issue do easy for me. he communicates my special needs thoroughly to other doctors. I came to him years ago because I'd had very bad help from another doctor because I knew he cared about me.

My first appointment I went into the doctors office and waited for 15 minutes and then the front desk person said that the Dr. is running an hour behind schedule so I had to reschedule due to having to go to work. The second time I came in I was brought back fairly promptly but then ended up waiting for about 45 minutes in the examination room. Seem's to be a trend of Dr. Annable being behind schedule and my time is important as well so I will be looking for a new doctor.

07/05/2016
[...] He had not read my file before he went in to see me, his demeanor was cold and impersonal (he stood in the corner and asked me why I was there or what I needed and just stared at me blankly) we didn't talk about my health concern at all, as soon as I told him why I was there he decided to refer me out. [...] He wouldn't let me get a word in, and when I would say something he would talk over me. I also waited for him for about an hour because he was running late and there were two people ahead of me. He was definitely not worth the wait!!

Dr. Annable is a superior doctor. He performed a procedure in which many other doctors would not have done. Overall, it was a flawless experience. Highly recommended.

recieved call from office couple of weeks back telling me I needed to go for blood work which required fasting and no need for paperwork just go to lab. this morning I went to the lab and they did not have the orders. when I called the office they told me nobody had called me do they couldn't help me. I kept saying I knew for sure somebody had and that I wouldn't just make it up. after leaving the lab and going in person to doctor office the check in receptionist found my doctors orders easily. was very frustrating being told nobody had called me when I knew they had. I was upset as by the time I got my blood work done it was 10;30 and I had not eaten for 16 hours

I came in due to knee pain. The doctor knew my history and immediately prescribed a pain med, and referred me to have a CT Scan. He did not, in my opinion, really look closely at my knee. In the past, other doctors have checked range of motion, etc. That was not the case with this visit.

I waited an hour and a half to be seen by Doctor. This is ridiculous. My time is just as valuable as yours. Why book me an appointment for 4:30 when I don't get seen til 6 pm. [...] No I would not recommend anyone to go to your facility. I am considering other options.
