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. Sung has been the best Primary Care Physician that I've had. He listens to what I have to say and answers each question honestly without being judgemental or insensitive like previous primary doctors that I've encountered. I've already recommended Dr. Sung to my family.

all of my needs were addressed at my visit and my referral was put in immediately for an ophthalmologist, the office called me and I was seen the very next day to the referral Dr which was unexpected but I appreciated the immediate care I received. I will def see Dr Sung in the future. both my husband and I have started seeing him more often bc our Primary Care physician is usually booked up but we have had very positive experiences with Dr Sung and will continue to see him for our medical care.

03/18/2017
Dr. Sung recommended that I talk with an orthopedist about my elbow but did not give me a referral of a name nor tell me how to proceed ( should I find the orthopedist from my insurance's list of doctors then give the name to Dr. Sung? Would I then make the appointment or would his office call first? Etc.) So I have not followed up on that [...]

I was supposed to have a referral to the sleep clinic for my sleep apnea issues. But even though Providence assured me that my referral was taken care of, the clinic never received it and I have been having so much trouble reaching this lady in the referral dept. I still haven't been able to talk to her and my referral is still not getting sent. On top of that, my provider Axminster got the wrong address for me on file so I wouldn't receive my referral anyway. Worst service ever!!!
