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.

Even though Dr Om did not see me within 15 mins of my appt time, I do understand how some patients would take a little longer to help, counsel or issue medications to. Therefore I always try to schedule my appts on a day when I'm free of any other obligations. Dr. Om is the 2nd best Dr. I've ever had. so I have no complaints. Thank You [...]

My primary doctor was Dr. […], and when she left I was considering finding a new doctor closer to my home, but, after my first visit with Dr.Om, I decided to stay with him. From my first visit with him, I have appreciated the overall excellent and thorough care I recieve with each dr. appointment. I have also used the portal for follow up, and have contacted him a couple of times with concerns, Dr. Om got back to me in a timely manner. The Receptionists and staff are always very kind and patient. The overall care I recieve makes my 30 minute drive to the office worthwhile.
