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 Laretta is great. unfortunately staff, telephone operator, receptionists are a stern and not as compassionate to patients. They take a stance that they are doing you a favor whenever they communicate with you. They need to be taught how to have a more cheery disposition and demeanor when communicating and in the presence of patients.
