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.

Excellent physician, not dismissive or argumentative. Passed my evaluation pretty handily, which is not easy to do. Does not seem to be overly concerned with issues of socioeconomic status or lack thereof (a big plus for me personally). Courteous and responsive to courtesy.

Poor communication between the provider and clerks. The provider told me wait at front and clerks will call me when the documents are ready, but they never called. I'd waited for 45 mins and asked about the documents then they gave me. They'd seen me waiting at front after seeing the provider but didn't bother them to ask me why I am still there. I was disappointed, but the provider was really nice.

Brisk, almost British level of professionalism, very nice to see. A tad authoritarian, probably due to overcompensating for youth (I have seen this before). I am curious to see if this goes away once a rapport is established.

I requested bloodwork be taken again during this visit and I was told no she to my results from the ER. this left me highly unsatisfied with this visit. if a patient requests bloodwork it should be given to them. they pay for that insurance and it was a request that stemmed from real concerns.

This was my first visit to the office. Dr Ekejiuba is my wife's primary doctor, so I decided to go to her because my wife liked the way she was treated. She was concerned about my overall health and took the time to discuss it with me. I felt very comfortable with her and look forward to my future visits.
