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.

the Rad tech repeatedly violated HIPPA by yelling loudly and multiple times the full and complete name of each patient. I did not appreciate having my full name announced in the waiting room for all other patients to hear. He needs to be trained on HIPPA.

09/13/2017
I just wish they would have given me more information on what I needed before going to the laborstory.

My appt was at 830 got called back about 840 did not see Dr Habbib until 9am. When I asked Dr Habbib how could they be so behind so early in the day and she stated she had to do "something" before coming to work. One I think that shows no respect for my time and two if the staff were aware they should have informed me. This is not the first time something like this has happened at this office. I am a difficult person to draw blood from so they called in [...] and he was GREAT

07/21/2017
Very supportive and easy to talk to

07/19/2017
This visit was to establish my care with a new doctor, Dr. Habib (my previous doctor retired in 12/2016). One of my prescriptions was re-ordered and labwork too. I go for the followup [...]--I expect to receive some immunizations that are due then. I took in my past medical records for my file. Everything was good and helpful -- not too long a visit.
90

07/10/2017
I wrote to the Provider two times using the My Chart app, but did not receive a response either time. This is odd because usually Dr Habib responds almost immediately.
100

06/28/2017
Any information regarding lab results I get online. Only when a result is not optimum does my doctor discuss her concerns and or suggestions for better results the next visit.

06/05/2017
normally Dr. Habib takes more than ample time but this visit felt rushed and not thorough - left feeling a bit disappointed and uncertain which is NOT usually the case. we all have our moments and we all have busy not so good days - I would still recommend Dr. Habib though.
100

06/05/2017
I really like Dr. Habib she never makes me feel like she's to busy or in a hurry she takes her time explains everything so that I understand. I hope she does not leave this office I having her as my Doctor.

After getting results from my blood work and urine sample, my Dr took the time to give me a call on the phone to discuss our 'plan'

06/05/2017

I have a very good experience with Dr. Habib. She seems the only one that listens and cares. [...]
90

04/26/2017
For as good as Dr. Habib is, the office staff is just the opposite. I have so much trouble getting responses, and when I get responses, getting the RIGHT response, it's ridiculous. Sometimes they border on the incompetent from my perspective. It is seriously an exercise in frustration dealing with the office.
100

04/26/2017
This was my first appointment with this provider. I believe she listened to my concerns and took steps to resolve. I am very impressed with this group.
100

This office is the best I have ever been to!The staff and doctors are great.
90

04/06/2017
For my health, the doctor ordered a TB skin test when I am sure I didn't meet any of the risk factors. This cause me to have an alternative trip to urgent care to have the test read at no additional cost. I did receive a referral for checking on my ringing in my ear, [...] I appreciate the doctor and the nurse practitioner. They are both friendly and professional. The intake assistants are also personable.

[...] i don't have good health at the moment. During the past year or a little over I've had many health issues and have seen many doctors with many groups, providence included. I have been disregarded, unheard at times, very nice doctors but they didn't try to even find out what's wrong unless I pushed and rushed because other patients were waiting! Dr Habib is an amazing Doctor!! she has given me my hope back in healthcare! she listens, understands and is very compationate and attentive to my needs complaints never felt rushed or was told to only give one issue per visit like 2 other doctors had told me ones!!and after over a year of suffering I think Dr Habib may have diagnosed my real problem!! I have an appointment to confirm soon but the direction she has pointed me seems exactly what I have been suffering with!! this Doctor is the best in the over 15 I have seen on the last year and a half!
100

02/08/2017
Dr. Habib is one of the most compassionate doctor's I've ever met.
100

02/02/2017
Very happy to get an appointment so quickly--same day with my own Dr.
100

01/18/2017
Everything is really good except that generally I have a lot of questions about my diagnosis. Often, I feel like my care providers can get a little bothered with my questions. I would like to have in-depth information about what I am diagnosed with to really understand what it is, what implications it has for my health, and what life-style changes I need to make in order to get better.
100

01/17/2017
Dr. Habib is very through with the results.
80

01/11/2017
No bad experiences.

I was hoping for DrHbib to do a PAP smear & a breast exam [I was disrobed for that], but she decided to send me to a nurse practioner--who ended up not taking my insurance.
100

11/25/2016
Each time I have had a problem Dr. Habib has ordered lab, X-Ray or both to determine the cause.
100

11/09/2016
Very Good
90

11/09/2016
Good experience. Fortunately, I'm in good health and my visit was only for a physical. The last time I was in the doctor's office before this last visit was a year ago, also for a physicl.
100

11/06/2016
It would be extremely helpful to have lab requests accessible on line so they can be printed out at the patient's convenience.
100

11/01/2016
My family and I recently switched from HMO to PPO, so I made appointments to get established with a new Family Practice Dr. and Dr. Habib is great. She listened to my concerns and gave easy yet very informative instructions to follow.
100

10/25/2016
Dr. Habib asked me how my health results are regarding two other specialists I see. It told me that she is concerned for my overall health not just the check ups I see her for. I really like her as my doctor. She talks to me in language I can understand and explains things if I don't understand the medical words.
100

10/24/2016
My experience was positive in all respects.

09/14/2016
Getting a hold of someone on the phone is impossible. MyChart and the ability to schedule your own appointments is a god-send.

09/01/2016
it seems as if she doesn't listen to what i am saying about the medications i take and have been taking, she is always trying to get me to take something different and keeps asking until i agree to try them, then i get a prescription i never take and end up getting my original medicine in the end, if she will prescribe them to me
100

09/01/2016
overall, very satisfied with the care received.
