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.

It took Dr. 45 mins to come into the exam room. she was running late due to a baby delivery that morning. this is an understandable delay, but the assistant put me in the room and shut the door with the comment that the Dr. would be right with me. any time during that 45 min wait, it would have been nice if an assistant had come back to let me know that the Dr. was running late and the reason for it. the lighting in the room was movement sensitive, so after awhile, the lights went out and I was sitting in a black room. I turned my phone on for lighting to find my way to the light switch, but as I moved the lights came on. the lights went out 3 times while I was waiting. it would have been nice had I been warned about the lights possibly going out. and it wasn't like the assistants were busy--they were just standing around chatting when I finally left the room.

I absolutely love Rachel as a doctor but ive had my appointments rescheduled 5 times now. My husband has to book time off work and giving us two hours notice is just not enough. We have a two hour drive to the clinic so he's always left work by the time I get the call to say she's not going to be there. She needs a nurse that's able to do routine appointments when she's not there. It's not fair that I've only been able to attend one of my appointments without her rescheduling. I couldn't possiblely refer her just because there's no guarantee that they'll ever be seen. I know I'm pregnant and my hormones are all over the place but the stress and tears i experience every time you call to cancel are horrible. If it wasn't for the fact I'm allowed to do a VBAC in the hospital then I would be looking else where for a provider.

Thank you to the kind and courteous office staff for their efficiency ! I was in the exam room before I had even filled out all the paper work! Thank you!

I'm a new patent of Dr. Long since my previous doctor retired last year. I am so happy I found her! She has always made me feel very comfortable and always takes the time needed to answer my questions. I have already recommended her to my friends and family. I couldn't be happier with the excellent care I have received by Dr. Long.

I have been very pleased with the time and attention given during appointments. The doctor and staff have been really kind. However, my wait time to be called in has been close to 25+ minutes. Lastly, I don't like that the obgyn waiting area is shared with urgent care, which increases the exposure to sick patients for a pregnant woman with ongoing appointments.

Dr. Long is a great doctor for me. She listens to me and she provides me with medical information related to me medical needs. She is very encouraging and honest. Most of all she has shown me that she cares about my health and so do I. Thanks again Dr. Long!
