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 really like Dr. Richey, what is disappointing is waiting over an hour after my scheduled appointment time. It's very frustrating.

I waited 45 minutes past my appointment time in the waiting room and another 15 to see my provider. This seems to be a regular problem. [...] I was almost late getting back to work and didn't have time to ask the questions I wanted to ask.

My check ups during my pregnancy were very easy and pleasant with Doctor Richey/her team. They made sure all my appointments and care were done on time. Besides following up on my paperwork for disability from work after having my baby. Recommending her to anyone who lives within the Torrance area.

Dr Richey is always easy to talk to. I have been seeing Dr Richey for many years. I haven't met a GYN who is as easy to communicate with. I always highly recommend Dr Richey if anybody asks my opinion for GYN's

Since this was the 1st time with this doctor for my yearly checkup, I can form the solid opinion for the doctor or the group. So far the experience was good.

08/09/2016
This provider was the worst OB GYN I have ever been too. She did not review my ultrasound results before telling me that my previous Doctor could not have seen what I what was reported to me. This Doctor also spoke over me, and what not sensitive to my concerns. She also did not perform a new patient exam. [...] felt that this Doctor needs training in delivering patient centered care.

I had a great experience with the receptionists and absolutely love my new provider for OB/GYN care. [...] the only thing I'm unhappy with is that the ultrasound is not done in office and the pb is also offsite. [...] I have only great things to report about Dr. Richey and the office staff there, however. I would love to see the services more streamlined and convenient. [...]

The first visit I waited one hour to see the doc. Apparently there was an emergency with an other client. But I had to come back an other day.

had to wait long time for my appointment. I do understand that they are busy but, that needs to be corrected somehow.

I just want to be clear, Dr. Richey is a fine doctor. They've had some complications switching over medical records to a new system, but it's completely understandable. It is a particular rotten apple with a staff member, [...]. She is rude on the phone, she is rude in person, she never follows up, she does not return phone calls when she says she will, she's dpropped the ball repeatedly and definitely needs customer service training because she has zero. Without knowing my gripes, my husband even noted how rude she was on our last visit. after experiencing all these incompetencies, if I were not in the middle of my pregnancy, I would have switched doctors months ago.
