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 don't have good health at the moment. During the past year or a little over I've had many health issues and have seen many doctors with many groups, providence included. I have been disregarded, unheard at times, very nice doctors but they didn't try to even find out what's wrong unless I pushed and rushed because other patients were waiting! Dr Habib is an amazing Doctor!! she has given me my hope back in healthcare! she listens, understands and is very compationate and attentive to my needs complaints never felt rushed or was told to only give one issue per visit like 2 other doctors had told me ones!!and after over a year of suffering I think Dr Habib may have diagnosed my real problem!! I have an appointment to confirm soon but the direction she has pointed me seems exactly what I have been suffering with!! this Doctor is the best in the over 15 I have seen on the last year and a half!

Very happy to get an appointment so quickly--same day with my own Dr.
100

01/17/2017
Everything is really good except that generally I have a lot of questions about my diagnosis. Often, I feel like my care providers can get a little bothered with my questions. I would like to have in-depth information about what I am diagnosed with to really understand what it is, what implications it has for my health, and what life-style changes I need to make in order to get better.

I was hoping for DrHbib to do a PAP smear & a breast exam [I was disrobed for that], but she decided to send me to a nurse practioner--who ended up not taking my insurance.

Good experience. Fortunately, I'm in good health and my visit was only for a physical. The last time I was in the doctor's office before this last visit was a year ago, also for a physicl.

11/05/2016
It would be extremely helpful to have lab requests accessible on line so they can be printed out at the patient's convenience.

10/31/2016
My family and I recently switched from HMO to PPO, so I made appointments to get established with a new Family Practice Dr. and Dr. Habib is great. She listened to my concerns and gave easy yet very informative instructions to follow.
100

10/24/2016
Dr. Habib asked me how my health results are regarding two other specialists I see. It told me that she is concerned for my overall health not just the check ups I see her for. I really like her as my doctor. She talks to me in language I can understand and explains things if I don't understand the medical words.

08/31/2016
it seems as if she doesn't listen to what i am saying about the medications i take and have been taking, she is always trying to get me to take something different and keeps asking until i agree to try them, then i get a prescription i never take and end up getting my original medicine in the end, if she will prescribe them to me

overall, very satisfied with the care received.

08/28/2016
A very bad experience for me because, I have to come to clear up my prescription to the pharmacy section she never called. The pharmacy dept. was waiting her call. It took me the following day to pick up the prescription because she never called the pharmacy dept. for faster release of my prescription.

When I came in with severe pain, I was referred to the appropriate x-ray area to determine the cause. All further tests confirmed that it needed no further treatment.

[...] Dr. Habib spent about 10 minutes with me for my annual physical. Whereas Dr. [...] spent 30 minutes just making sure that my eyes are healthy. Hmm, 12 min. for my entire body versus 30 min. for my eyes. That's pathetic.

Dr. Habib is a very good doctor and a good replacement for my previous provider, Dr. [...]. Dr. Habib seems to care about her patients. She follows up on office visits with phone calls if necessary. She is also a pleasant and likable person and is well-informed regarding medications. I would recommend her to others without hesitation.
100

01/24/2016
She knew everything about me because she kept thorough charts. If anything was left out it was because I was not experiencing the pain and discomforts during my visit with Dr Habib. I have never seen an other office so well managed, nor any other Dr who was so well organized.
