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.

EXCELLENT SERVICE from Dr. Matsuura and [...]. During the routine visit, I shared my concerns about a cyst on my chest that was growing larger. Dr. Matsuura immediately identified that it had a small infection. I requested to have the cyst drained and Dr. Matsuura immediately took care of it for me. [...] immediately prepped the procedure room, Dr. Matsuura immediately began the procedure and in no time, the cyst was drained and I was advised how to care for the incision. The next morning, I followed Dr. Matsuura's direction and everything went well as explained. I am so pleased that I was not required to setup a separate appointment for this procedure. I am so grateful to Dr. Matsuura and [...] for their care and professionalism.

blood sample drawn on my last visit was not processed by the lab (apparently because it arrived late); no one from the providers office notified me until I contacted them two weeks later

Long wait, but this visit was after the Thanksgiving holiday.

11/30/2016
Lab has lost blood samples twice. I don't understand why you don't fire the lab and get a local provider?

90

11/15/2016
care provider neglected to mention that i needed to sign up for mychart in the facility, and that doing so outside of the facility would require jumping through hoops. I spent over an hour going back and forth between helpdesk, the facility, and health information management to get the appropriate documents and test results.
100

11/14/2016

I was sent an email that I needed to come in to redraw blood for another potassium test & I emailed back on 10/27: "May I just come in at any time or do I need an appointment? Does this test require fasting?" I have not heard back from anyone.

10/31/2016
My ear was hurting, I was glad that I was able to get an appt right away but the doctor did not take care of my problem. He gave me a prescription that did not work. I went back the following week and saw Dr. [...]. He cleaned out my ear and the pain is gone !!
10

10/29/2016
I like my doctor and doctor assistant. I hate the office business model. It's too difficult to get an appointment, and if i have a minor issue or injury, there are no available appointments and i am referred to urgent care. [...] Also, i just had blood work, but all I get is several reports in MyChart that are difficult to understand, and the doctor does not followup with a call or email to say that everything is okay or not okay. It would be nice to at least get an email or txt or mail that summarizes my results in an understandable format. Thanks.

10/11/2016
During my last visit [...] blood was drawn which apparently was not ordered by the doctor. Being that my veins are extremely hard to find, it first was attempted by the Medical Assistant who asked if he could draw the blood from the back of my hand which I refused. He then had a RN come in to draw the blood. When I didn't see my labs on my patient portal, I called to asked and was told that labs were not ordered. Therefore I was inconvenienced of having three to four vials drawn for no reason. I would appreciate if the staff would verify first that labs were ordered before actually doing the work. I am someone that bruises easily on bad blood draws.

10/11/2016
Dr Matsuura has been my physician for at least 20 yrs. He's the best ever.

10/05/2016
My appointment was changed by leaving me a message that I didn't get. I had to wait for over a month to get a new appointment.

10/04/2016
I thinkm like most doctors they are busy-booked solid. My last two doctors talked a bit more easily and spend a more relaxed time...but I suspect their practices were not as booked, which may reflect on my doctors popularity, which is a good thing overall.
100

10/02/2016
I would like to have a better understanding of my blood/test results. Do not understand the test details mailed to me from My Chart. I will take the print out and discuss it with Mr. Matsuura on my next scheduled appointment.
90

09/27/2016
Very disappointed in getting referrals. Send fax requesting referral...no answer. Asked the Doctor for referral in office and received 2 from receptionist after asking for it again. She had to get info from Doctor' assistant.

09/05/2016
Waited 45 minutes to get into the examining room. Designated nurse assistant to Doctor left for lunch and set up another assistant to finish up morning appointments. Communication must not have been too good. Waited 45 minutes. After Doctor did come into room he had to go find an assistant to administer a pap test.

I love the "MyChart" access. I had a blood test and my results were available the next day and I could review them at my leisure. I've had short question/answer emails (prescriptions, brief questions, etc) with both my PCP, Dr Matsuura and his nurse. I was referred to Dr Matsuura by a friend and I am recommending to my wife who currerntly does not have a PCP. i feel really cared for ...
