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.

The receptionist [...] was wonderful, Dr. Ishimaru was AMAZING, but the MA [...] was unfriendly and uncaring. I was also advised my MRI prior auth will take 2-3 weeks which is ridiculous since I also do prior auths as a part of my job and know that the average turnaround time is 3 days. The office should probably figure out a more efficient way to handle prior auths.

This was my first visit to this office. I waited 90 minutes to see the doctor and then walked out. I never even received a follow-up call or an apology. I don't care that the doctor had a flat tire that morning and that her spare also had a flat. Someone could have called me to let me know she was running 90+ minutes behind schedule. If I treated my clients in this manner, I'd be fired. This is completely unacceptable and in no way a display of courtesy and respect to your clients. I will never go back. Unbelievable.

My initial concern was that it was difficult to get an appt in a timely manner (I was told there was no availability until 3mos out), but after reaching out and sharing my concern, they were able to get me in earlier. So THANK YOU for that!

dr Ishimaru is beyond wonderful. she truly cares and is very thorough. I only wish she could have reduced the wait time it took to see me. also the appointment reminder service tells you to show up 15 min earlier than your scheduled appointment time which caused me to wait for 45 min before seeing my provider. please leave the correct appointment time in the voicemail reminder system.

Dr. Ishimaru is very good at taking her time to explain answers and checking in on past issues. I like that I don't feel like I have to reintroduce myself every time I go in, even though it's only once per year.

Dr. Ishimaru is excellent but practice is very busy. Sometimes scheduling an appointment can be challenging and wait times very long.
