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. Maner is amazing. I have followed her wherever she goes for over 20 years. personally, I will go anywhere to see her. I miss the intimacy of when she was in private practice and I dont care for the factory type setting at the current institute. however, it has gotten much more friendly and accessible.

My ob/gyn has still not gotten back to me regarding an email I sent that voiced my concerns that I wasn't getting my prescriptions on time. I still have not heard from her and it's been almost a month. I am switching hospitals at the beginning of the year specifically because of this. I have a life threatening condition and my doctor doesn't even get back to me. That is unacceptable.

I was referred to Dr. Denise Maner by my mom. My mom and I had been looking for a PCP for a while and after she was referred to Dr. Maner, she was and is very satisfied with the decision she made. Dr. Maner is very nice and understanding and she takes the time to listen to her patients. She ordered a test for me after I gave her my family history to make sure that I wasn't going through the same thing. She is an amazing doctor!
