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.

Dr. Kristedja is a great doctor. He listens and answers all of my questions. Spends as much time as I need. Returns calls promptly. Answers questions in a way that I can understand. I would definitely recommend him. And the office staff is wonderful as well. They are helpful, kind, patient.

Dr. Kristedja is outstanding! I met him when I was already in the hospital with some serious health problems. He immediately cared for me as though he had been treating me for years. He always made time to explain and answer questions and always gave me the impression that he really knew what he was doing. And when the situation was so strange or complicated, he admitted it and presented all the options. If it's possible to say this, I almost look forward to "going to the doctor", when it's he who is that doctor!
