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. Galpin and his staff are the most knowledgeable, caring, concerned people you would ever want to deal with. I feel fortunate to have him as my health care providers.

Did not follow up with need for nuclear CT for the last 8-12 months, first didn't have flu shot, then "didn't have time" to administer it, then forgot to administer it. Had to go to another provider for a Hep A shot. Did not follow up with labs, only to find out on day of visit that they're weren't any b/c lab lost blood, "lost" medical paperwork, said I had taken it back with me at last visit and miraculously "found: it on the day of visit five weeks later.

There is always a long wait time. In addition, the provider often takes a long time to refill a prescription. Otherwise, I find the provider to be an excellent physician and someone I trust.
