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.

in office he was great. when I called regarding a follow question he was short, condescending and uninformed. I ended up going to the other urgent care and diagnosed properly.

the doctor was good but the nurse was not! I went I. with a large sty on my eye and the nurse demanded I take an eye test with clearly I could not see out of my eye but he was rude and told me it was protocol! I am a nurse and I just could not understand the purpose when clearly I could not see and he was rude when I told him I could not do this. would not return because of this !

my only issue was the wait time.The sign at the front desk said at was a 1 hour wait time to see the doctor but I waited over 2 hours. if the waiting room had been full I could understand that but there were only 2 other people out there. I'm sure there were more pt. s in the back but I thought that was a really long time. by the time I left I had been there almost 3 full hours. I might as well have gone to the ER.

following up, it took 3 transfers and 4 people who did not know what the Dr prescribed to figure it out and get me my medication

No real follow up except a message stating my test results were normal. I went to this provider for a sexual disfunction and the Dr without seeing results from Lab says" i think you should see a therapist"

The provider was excellent. Getting the referral submitted to our insurance ALWAYS requires a follow up call to you by us to get it set in motion by your support staff.
