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 know I have the best care with Dr. Richard Wright, and The Pacific Heart Institute. For years Dr. Wright and the Pacific Heart Institute monitored my mother's heart issues. My mother lived to be almost 93, passing away from other causes. My husband is also in his care . . .we know we are in the best hands.

Dr. Wright - excellent as always. Took many months of my proactive follow up w/his scheduler to get an appt. due to lack of response. Turns out I should have been told I needed an [...] appt. but any test could be scheduled & that was NEVER communicated to me.

Dr. R. Wright observes the dramatic change in gait & speech as compared to 6 months prior, he orders MRI of the brain to be done the following day. We received results of that echocardiogram one day later.
