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.

A lot of times the office is really busy, so I can't get an appointment as soon as I would like one. I called in for an appointment and was told I couldn't get one for two weeks. Luckily I called the next day and there was a cancellation for the following day.

I was supposed to have a referral to the sleep clinic for my sleep apnea issues. But even though Providence assured me that my referral was taken care of, the clinic never received it and I have been having so much trouble reaching this lady in the referral dept. I still haven't been able to talk to her and my referral is still not getting sent. On top of that, my provider Axminster got the wrong address for me on file so I wouldn't receive my referral anyway. Worst service ever!!!

Asked for a referral, received within a week.

07/31/2016
I am a relatively new patient to Providence. Dr. Sung listens to me and is responsive to my needs by providing feedback and referrals as appropriate without making me feel rushed or as if I don't deserve services. This is important to me as it is the primary reason I left my other long-time provider. The front desk staff are always courteous and respectful and your nurses are caring and positive.

My neck had been hurting for 2wks so I asked for a referral to see a chiropractor. The doctor prescribed me muscle relaxers and no referral. It has been exactly one week today of taking the muscle relaxers and no improvement. Now I have to go back in to get a referral anyway. [...]

wish someone would have called to go over test results for my blood work. my chart is good but when it comes to things like that a phone call is needed
80

07/12/2016
I felt rushed when the medical assistant asked me to hurry up [...] as I came in 5 minutes late to my scheduled appointment. My blood pressure went up as was not relaxed and felt harassed at that moment. [...] Thought she was unprofessional to rush me like that. Which it was uncomfortable experience for me and I do not really like it. However, Dr Sung is very professional and caring in which it weight in the other bad things happened.

07/10/2016
Dr. Sung is a very good doctor. He is a very kind, sincere and caring person. He explained/reviewed the x-ray regarding the injury on the wrist.

07/10/2016
I like the Providence system and have had good experiences. This visit seemed awkward, as I didn't need anything other than a referral for a dense tissue breast exam. [...] I didn't feel like the dr was understanding the situation [...] He was a little condescending, as I think he wanted to provide value in our appt (when I really just needed the referral) so he told me what type of sunscreen to use when I am in the sun and spoke to me like I was a child. I could've been reading him wrong, but it felt condescending to give me instructions like that, when he's never met me before.

07/05/2016
I told the doctor that I had had an accident three days prior and needed an urgent referral to an orthopedic specialist for injuries sustained to my hip, knee and back. He ordered xrays, but only of my knees, not my hip - I had to ask again for that. The worst part, was that he did not give me an urgent referral to an ortho. Also, he only gave me a referral for my knee. He did not tell me what to do for a torn ligament (rest, ice, compression and elevation). Despite the fact that I was in severe pain with torn ligaments, he did not give me an urgent referral. I asked for a physical therapy referral for my hip and back, and he wrote it for my knee only.

my doctor is in vacation and I am waiting for the results of my ultrasound. I called the office, left a message but no other doctor return my call.
100

05/10/2016
The only issue I have with this appointment is the MA that called me into the back and took myour room. I said good morning to her and she never replied or acknowledged my greeting. When she was taking my vitals, she handed me the thermometer and held it and gave it back. When she was taking my blood pressure she was rather harsh and rushed. Not once did she smiled or speak to me. I felt like she didn't realize how lucky she was to have a job. This is the first time I have ever been treated that way at any of our Providence sites.
100

05/05/2016
First time appointment with Dr.Sung. Very nice doctor. very attentive, ask a lot of questions to better understand my injury and checked to make sure I get the best care. Very easy to talk to and willing listen and answer any questions I had.

I was scheduled with Dr. Sung after arriving for my appointment to find that my primary had canceled our appt. Dr. Sung listened to my concerns, showed respect for what I had to say about my reason for visiting, explained things to me in a way that I understood, and was highly efficient without me feeling rushed. It was greatly appreciated.

04/05/2016
as soon as I walked in I was treated with the up most respect. The provider came in and he was great! He made sure I was aware of all the test they were giving me. He was extremely polite, he stepped in for me because my original dr. Dr [...] was not there. But had a pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend him.

02/24/2016
The actual visit on [...] was a good experience and my first time at that office. I need to be referred out for specialty and was told to call office the Monday following my appointment and I have. To date, the referral coordinator, [...], has not returned my calls or even acknowledged that I have called twice so I am very frustrated as I need to be seen for OB care in the next couple of weeks. Despite my favorable visit with Dr. Sung, this demonstrates to me that the office staff if careless and irresponsible. Obtaining a referral takes time, but waiting for an appointment with a specialist takes even longer. [...]
