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.

Overall, everything is great. However, no one wants to arrive for their appointment on time or even early only to be waiting 30-45 minutes each visit.

My initial concern was that it was difficult to get an appt in a timely manner (I was told there was no availability until 3mos out), but after reaching out and sharing my concern, they were able to get me in earlier. So THANK YOU for that!

dr Ishimaru is beyond wonderful. she truly cares and is very thorough. I only wish she could have reduced the wait time it took to see me. also the appointment reminder service tells you to show up 15 min earlier than your scheduled appointment time which caused me to wait for 45 min before seeing my provider. please leave the correct appointment time in the voicemail reminder system.

Dr. Ishimaru is very good at taking her time to explain answers and checking in on past issues. I like that I don't feel like I have to reintroduce myself every time I go in, even though it's only once per year.

I was 7 weeks pregnant, with twins when I called to schedule for my first prenatal visit however, the receptionists didn't give a sense of urgency and didn't schedule me until I was 15 weeks.

Dr. Ishimaru has been an outstanding OBGYN. She's been amazingly helpful and informative throughout my pregnancy. She's always quick to respond to emails or phone questions. She has also been great about referring me to a perinatal specialist for pregnancy monitoring and to a pediatrician for my little one on the way. She is also aligned with a great group of other doctors in her practice, and they set up a "meet and greet" with the other doctors, so that all expectant mothers in their care are comfortable with whomever will be on call the day that they go into labor. That really set my mind at ease about the delivery. I am very pleased with Dr. Ishimaru and grateful she has been able to oversee our pregnancy.
