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.

only issue I had was having to call back 4 days in a roll to obtain a replacement for a type of medication that was not covered through the insurance. I really needed it and they kept saying they would get back to me but I had to call everyday until I finally received a new prescription. I was a little bummed about them not following through. it was critical to my healt and they are usually very helpful.

Both Dr. Raval and [...] were very knowledgeable, efficient, and helpful. The office staff was very knowledgeable, efficient, and helpful. Also [...], an RN at PMI, did an excellent job of explaining selected test results to me over the phone.

I received my lab results on, "My Chart." 2 are listed as "abnormal". I called Dr. Raval's office 4 times in 2 days asking to speak to her to get clarification, and she never called me back. When I called on Friday after lunch, I was told she left for the day. I still have not spoken to her about my labs.

Nurse's assistant didn't know how to take blood pressure. Blood draw repeatedly missed veins; her office was clutter and messy and she dumped blood from one vial to another. Terrible.

She's a nice enough lady, but not particularly warm. Like I'll tell her about my symptoms and then she just looks at me with about 30 seconds of silence. It's awkward.

The appointment was a surgery pre-test. The people making the appointment who needed the orders from the surgeon dropped the ball in calling me once they received the orders (which had to be sent twice) and so the appointment was hastily scheduled and my surgery almost had to be delayed because of it. Also I was left waiting in the exam room for about 30 minutes for someone to perform an EKG on me. I literally took a 15 minute nap while I was waiting, which is great for me, but pretty ridiculous.

Dr. Raval is always attentive and helpful. I'm a veteran and had multiple medical needs stemming from my overseas service after retiring from the military. Dr. Raval has helped with all of them and returned me to excellent health.

Dr. Usha Raval spent less than 10 minutes with me and appeared annoyed by my questions. She left saying she would write out a prescription and said I should get a [...] ultrasound for the pain but failed to explained why or what the primary concerns were. She left the room and I assumed she would return, but 15 minutes later, the nurse came back in and asked me why I was still there.

I am in my 40's and relocated to LA from NYC 3 years ago, I was lucky enough to have discovered this medical facility, I have never had such great experiences going to a doctor. from the minute you walk in the door the girls at the front desk are extremely polite and helpful and generally give me a feeling of competency and understanding. The staff that take your vitals and review your medical concerns prior to seeing the doctor are all amazing, knowledgeable and friendly. and then the doctor is patient, understanding and has successfully encouraged me to go beyond my regular habits to increase a nutritional diet, exercise, etc... This facility is everything a doctors office should be....

[...] I'm not in the medical field. I don't know how to read my test results. I would like someone to walk me thru it so that I know good and bad levels. this was my first experience with this doctor so I don't know if i did something to upset her where she doesn't feel like I'm going to be a long term patient and that's why she doesn't care to spend time with me.

Nothing about my blood test was discussed with me - I looked into my chart and found that I have high cholesterol and never was it discussed with me. I need to lose weight no information or referrals provided.
