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.

My waiting time after my scheduled appointment time was an hour or more. An extreme waste of my time. Will not happen again. I will never wait that long again.

Dr. Joyce Chang is very straightforward. She listens to my concerns and addresses the right away. I was gonna switch to [...] insurance because of their very good reproductive health program but I'm having second thoughts because Dr. Chang is a very good PMD to my husband & I.

Dr. Chang has been my PCP for the past 4yrs and she has been an excellent PCP from the beginning. If not only because of my change of insurance (I'm going by my husband's), I would never change my PCP.

appointment was set for normal car provider, however, with out any knowledge from any office staff; was never told that my doctor was not in. Paid my co-pay to see a different Doctor that knows nothing about me, besides what is in my chart. the doctor didn't try to get to know me and prescribed & referred me to something I highly believe is not needed for myself or the situation I'm in. asked to speak to the office manager about poor customer service from the front office, never received a call back from neither office manager, Doctor, or front office regarding my situation and paper work. very disappointing when you've been ok with your doctor and the office for a long time, then have one bad experience and it totally blows all respect for that entire office. did encounter someone today who was truly helpful, but it still doesn't amount to the service I have received since my last visit at the office.

im a new patient and my first appointment was very delightful. Definitely recommends with other family members or friends and relatives. The only thing that i want to note is about the nurse who assisted me is that she was laughing while asking questions about me. And i asked why, she's laughing . i feel that it's not proper.

08/28/2016
Overall, I really like and appreciate Dr. Chang. However, I often feel that my visits with her are a bit rushed and impersonal. As a patient, I like to feel that I have a personal connection with my doctor, especially if I've been under their care for a number of years. Sadly, that isn't the case with Dr. Chang. Perhaps she's a bit shy and introverted, which can affect her rapport with patients.

08/26/2016
I don't like that she always refers me to other doctors, when nothing is wrong. Just for check-up.

I received work order for a colonoscopy after telling Dr. Chang that I already had one done. I actually thought the order was for someone else especially after seeing the word malignant. I did not see the letter which was behind the order additional info was needed. Only the letter should have been sent without the work order.

Dr.Chang is wonderful. She is the perfect dr. for me. I put off going to the doctor for years but Dr. Chang has sure helped me get over my "white coat fear". I was diagnosed with cancer in January and she has worked with me and the oncologist making sure everything was going well and answering any questions I've had about medications and changes. SHE IS WONDERFUL!!!

I'm very comfortable with this doctor and this office. They're all friendly, concerned and remember who you are and ask how you're doing if last time you were under the weather. I referred my sister to Dr. Chang and she's had white coat syndrome for her whole life. She now goes to the doctor regularly thanks to Dr. Chang carefully easing her into visits, medications etc. Wonderful doctor, I never thought I'd get my sister to go willingly to a doctor. Fabulous care by everyone there.
