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.

Tge clerk who took my blood was not successful. She tried in both arms and hurt me tremendously. She made me feel as though it was my fault for her not finding a good vein due to my being too cold and sensitive. If a clerk knows she can't find a vein, she should not continue hurting the patient.

Dr. Raval is wonderful. She listens very carefully and follows up on any concerns I express. She takes care of the situation herself and only refers when we have exhausted the basic remedies for the situation.

[...] I did not receive a return phone call. Email response is quick - but short leaving me with more questions - this physical - I do not understand why I did not have my ears checked - as in prev. years - was it forgotten?

There was a delay in the doctor seeing me because she was tending to another patient who evidently had a sensitive issue. The Nurse came in and apologized for the delay but assured me that the doctor would be with me soon. I appreciated the update and not being left with no explanation. Warmer rooms would be appreciated:)

The bedside manner of the doctor was good, however I saw my blood test results online come back "abnormal". I never received a call to review this, and I called the office three times to follow up and never received a call back. I expect my doctor to follow up with my on test results, and further I expect that if I call with a question I get a call back, especially to discuss a concern. It is unacceptable for a doctor to never follow up with their patient.

The front desk personnel has excellent customer service etiquette. Office staff is very professional and curteous. One another note I placed a call on [...] I have to give a 10+ exceptional customer service when I spoke to [...]. I called in for a gynecology referral and [...] was not only professional she also called me back with follow up. Very professional!

After my exam I had to go back to receptionist's waiting room to wait again to have my blood drawn. My wait this time was longer than my initial wait because they did not notify the nurse who was drawing my blood that I was in the lobby waiting.

only issue I had was having to call back 4 days in a roll to obtain a replacement for a type of medication that was not covered through the insurance. I really needed it and they kept saying they would get back to me but I had to call everyday until I finally received a new prescription. I was a little bummed about them not following through. it was critical to my healt and they are usually very helpful.

I received my lab results on, "My Chart." 2 are listed as "abnormal". I called Dr. Raval's office 4 times in 2 days asking to speak to her to get clarification, and she never called me back. When I called on Friday after lunch, I was told she left for the day. I still have not spoken to her about my labs.

Nurse's assistant didn't know how to take blood pressure. Blood draw repeatedly missed veins; her office was clutter and messy and she dumped blood from one vial to another. Terrible.

She's a nice enough lady, but not particularly warm. Like I'll tell her about my symptoms and then she just looks at me with about 30 seconds of silence. It's awkward.
