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 Merz is my cardiologist- a wonderful caring Dr that takes time to listen, explain & diagnose. I have never had to wait long in reception room nor waiting for exams to be conducted. I would definitely recommend Dr Merz. He was also my parents' cardiologist. Excellent Dr! Thank you

My experience with this provider is excellent except for one minor thing. The staff there is not used to draw blood for tests. I had a couple of very painful draws. I now only go directly to [...]. Blood draw there is always painless.
