Patient Ratings and Comments
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.

Dr B is a great doctor. I just think he sees too many patients. He is a little bit rushed and doesn't follow up unless you email him and bug him.

I had to follow up with a referral to be submitted. waited over 5 business days then sent message to pcp office to have them submit a referral

I have been with this doctor for 12 years and I used to be able to see him the within the day or the next day for sick issues. It has been getting very difficult to see my doctor nowadays. I have been given 2 weeks and even recently a 3 week of waiting time to see him. I am given the option to wait or go to ER. Urgent care does not provide me excellent doctors ( I have been there and when a doctor tells me he/she does not know how to manage my problem...I am discouraged). There is a reason why you call your doctor your primary doctor. This is why I purposefully choose this medical group and that is because I wanted to keep this doctor.

I made this appointment because I had a sore throat and two of my grandchildren had recently been diagnosed with strep. I wanted to be sure I didn't have a strep infection. My PCP was not immediately available so I was offered an appointment with Dr. Borovay, which I accepted. He was friendly, competent, and I would recommend him to anyone.

09/05/2016
Absolutely Love Dr. Borovay BUT it is very difficult to get an appointment with him if it's a bit urgent. Meaning the appointment desk is not always helpful and just tells you to go to Urgent Care. I prefer seeing my own doctor because he knows me and my background. Dr. Borovay ALWAYS finds a way to squeeze anyone in my family into his day. it's just not very easy to get the person on the line to take a message.
100

08/06/2016
My issue is I always have to wait at least 45 min to get called in then additional Tim once in the room.. secondly, when I am sick I always have to go to urgent care because I can't get in. When I am sick , I want to see my regular dr who knows me.

doctor spent 10 minutes going over my history which i had updated online 2 days before my appointment and then when i wanted something done was told he did not have time as only allowed 30 min for a physical.
90

07/06/2016
3-4 week wait time for an appt with my doctor is too much when I have an important issue. one hour wait time in office is too much

Dr B is a very good doctor and has a wonderful sense of humor. Having those 2 qualities make a visit to the doctor's office as good as it can get.
90

06/20/2016
I have become accustomed to extending time in the waiting room to see my doctor but this visit was exceptional. I had to wait approx. 50 mins. before being taken into an exam room and then another 20 mins. before my doctor appeared. On the plus, both my doctor and his nurse are always pleasant and I'm never feel rushed no matter how much his schedule is backed up.
