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 just feel that for each concern that I have I must make another appointment, I work and I just can't keep taking time off. I know that the doctors are on a time limit with each patient and maybe this is not fair for all concern and the amount of patients that the doctors can see a day must be cut back????,but then we must wait longer to see a doctor!!! what is the solution???

09/02/2017
Twice I was directed to call 855-359-6323 for an authorization and both times was told authorization had to come from Dr Brigham which I knew. After third attempt I spoke to receptionist who was able to send a message and finally I was able to make an appointment with the opthamologist at Dr [...]s office. It was better when you could reach Dr Brigham by calling directly to his office instead of getting the run around from thr front desk, but I do believe they thought they were giving me the right information as they were courteous.

1. I never knew you guys moved locations. I showed up to the old building which caused me to miss my initial appointment. you need to make sure patients know you have moved. start texting notifications as Dr Brigham suggested. excellent idea!2. I waited fifty minutes to see my physician, that a little excessive when one has an appointment. 3. Dr Brigham takes great pride in his patients and his good vibes rub off on his patients.
