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.

It was clear that Dr Weinstock had thoroughly reviewed my medical record because he asked me about my Naval service and asked about the conditions leading up to my initial colonoscopy. I felt as though he took a very personal and relatable approach to providing medical care; that goes a long way in building patient trust. The impression I received from the initial checkup gives me high confidence the procedure will go exceptionally well.

I am a new patient to Dr. Weinstock and waited 6 weeks for an appointment to see him. I do not feel that he listened to my health concern. It is my opinion that he read notes on my chart from another doctor and was influenced by those notes. He gave orders for me to get an ultrasound done on my abdomen after I was complaining of chest pain. When I realized that the test he ordered would not be able to view my upper stomach and chest area where the pain is coming from, I declined to get the test done. I was told by the technician that he would be calling me that afternoon [...]. I still have not heard from him or anyone in his office.

Dr Weinstock is a great physician. He is kind and attentive and listens to someone who would prefer to use natural cures if applicable, rather than that awful Humira that is advertised constantly with very dangerous side effects. So far using Pentasa, or just Aloe, turmeric, apple cider vinegar my IBS has been manageable.
