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 had a sinus infection and a very sore throat. The doctor prescribed Lidocane and ibuprofen and did not prescribe an antibiotic. I had to visit the Urgent Care doctor on [...] to get the antibiotic for the infection.

I felt he was not thorough enough and seemed to ;b I did not think he was thorough enough, nor spend enough time with me, seemed to be anxious to have me leave and did not seem to appreciate my level of pain. (I guess he didn't actually believe me)

Dr. C. was extremely kind and understanding. I came in for a sprained ankle but I had questions regarding a few other matters and he was very helpful and didn't make me feel like it wasn't important. Answered all my questions and gave me good advice.

I have no problem with this provider. I didn't ask for a referral when I was at the appointment. emailed a week later asking for a referral and haven't heard back - only been 2 days but would expect a response relatively quickly based on the last time I needed a referral

My concerns have never been with Dr. Clavecillas or any of his staff. The problem I have is with the phone system and sometimes the people who answer the phone. I have called and the person answering the phone always sounds harsh and not friendly. You need a better phone system. I do not always get call backs from my doctor and i believe it is because the msg never got to him. I have also been told that she was sorry but that is not what I had asked for. I am sure that people working there are quite nice, but I think some type of guidance might be need to be more professional.
