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. Wong was great. However, the wait time to see him was horrible. It shouldn't take a patient waiting an hour and 10-15 to be seen by a doctor. The nurse was really great at defusing the situation as I almost [...] left.

over the past three to six months, the care at this provider agency has gone down tremendously. [...] It is almost impossible to schedule an appointment with your primary provider within 2 months, and the new reception staff are extremely rude and belligerent. I will be looking to change my provider when it is time for open enrollment.

On [...] after 5 days of constant coughing and shortness of breath I finally decided to call to get an appointment to see Dr. [...], however, she was out and I was referred to Dr. Lewis Wong. I went in at 4pm the same day and when I arrived I could hardly breathe, from [...], the RN to Dr. Wong, everyone was so attentive to my needs, constantly taking my blood pressure, monitoring my breathing, temperature, etc. Immediately Dr. Wong came in examined me and sent me to x-ray, who [...], was so sweet to push me, [...] to x-ray. That was so sweet of her (I hope she's okay :-) Anyway after xray I was pushed back to an exam room and Dr. Wong came in re-examined and monitored me again and again and explained, in detail what & why. Ordered a breathing treatment and examined me again before determining I did not need to go to the emergency room but cautioned me over and over that if my breathing dropped, with the med's prescribed, do not hesitate to go.

My primary care provides is very thorough, ensures his patients are well and understand the treatment before they are discharged. He follows up with test results, gives medical advice, and will tell if he prefers you come back for an additional check up. Dr. Wong is very caring of his patients. I would definitely recommend my friends.
100

01/12/2017
