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.

I have no bad. I only have good. Excellent doctor, listens to me, answers my questions, I plot test data and he looks at it and tells me if the data is going in the correct direction. Dr. Fischer was recommended by my main doctor (Dr. [...]) and I really like Dr. S. Fischer. He explains everything--he explained my options and treatment plan prior to my chemotherapy, through it, and now beyond it in the remission period.

Dr. Fischer is probably the best in his field of oncology. He has been extremely helpful in my pancreatic cancer treatment. He always texts me back within one or two hours when I have a question and has even called me at home late at night to give me results of my tests. Frankly, I would not be alive without his caring and patience. Two of my closest friends have met him and they would refer all their friends and clients to him. I hope they don't have to do that since cancer is no picnic......but this goes to show how dedicated Dr. Fischer is to his patients and how likable he is
