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.

I do not like not having the opportunity to talk (when I call) directly to my providers immediate office (not the central call center) including not being able to leave a direct message to my Dr. to give me a call back. In the past, when I've had Dr's. and specialists in their own office (I guess private practice/offices), I've never had a problem with direct contact or immediate attention. Although, I do like my current provider, He is very personable and attentive.

08/31/2016
Dr Gatlin is always great about listening to my ailments, making sure we have covered everything and responds to my iChart messages in a very timely manner. He never rushes me.

Everything is fine aside from the waiting time.

07/18/2016
I wish the wait times weren't so long. I inderatand that emergencies or overbooking occur, but to have to wait like 30min to see your doxtor often deadbeats the purpose of booking an earlier appointment.

03/29/2016
I liked his personality very much. He was polite and upbeat. However, I thought he needed to do a better exam. […] I had to tell him I was concerned about the pain in my chest before he thought to listen to my lungs as I had much pain in my chest from bronchitis. Other than that he was good and understanding. […] Over all he was very down to Earth and cheerful and provided meds that helped. […] There is always room for improvement though.

My care providers were good & very concerned about me.
100

02/15/2016
My issues where with the nurses and the attention they did not give to my care. The amount of time I spent in the waiting room was due to lack of communications between the nurses. I arrived at 8:30 I didn't leave until 11:55. It was not the receptionist and it was not the doctor the sad part is that every time I go I deal with the lack of concern with the nurses.
100

02/13/2016
