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. Shepal Doshi changed my life for the better since he became my doctor in 2010. He is always at the forefront of modern medicine, has spared me unnecessary tests and treatments, explained my condition to me clearly, and is overall amazing in every possible way. I had extensive testing done at [...] and was left with more questions than answers. Dr. Doshi bravely took on all of my questions with ease and reassurance, and recognized immediately [...] gave me a bad medication match. He is my biggest ally and I have been determined to be his biggest success story. I owe all of my best days to him!

This appointment was a one year check up following a cardiac ablation for a congenital heart defect. The check up showed that the procedure was a success. I also discussed with the doctor ( an electrophysiologist) that I am still having reactions to routine over the counter medications that result in a fast heart rate. For example, I recently tried taking the generic version of children's Flonase, which resulted in having a rapid heartbeat for over three hours. He was not sure why I am still having these kinds of reactions and referred me to a general practitioner. He is a great doctor, but I felt that he does not appreciate how invasive these rare occasions are. I am concerned that a general practitioner will not be able to diagnose this reaction since it seems more tied to a cardiac condition.

Dr. Doshi is everything a physician should be - knowledgeable, compassionate, professional. He will be doing another procedure on my heart within a few months, and while I am not looking forward to it, I know I am in the best possible hands.

I sent a text to Dr. Doshi at 10:30am, however, he was in Japan at the time and it was 4am at the time in Japan. He called me within an hour and arranged for an appointment in his office with his associate for the same day. I would say that this is worthy of a very good rating.

Dr. Doshi is an extraordinary provider. He is personable, gentle and caring which are particularly distinctive qualities for a heart surgeon. His outstanding reputation for technical superiority appears well deserved. The hospital staff with whom he works adore and admire him. I cannot imagine a better experience.
