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 Yasharel's office staff are some of the most polite people I have ever met. My sciatica started flaring and I told Dr Yasharel that my pain was 10 out of 10. He gave me [...], which is standard, no issues there. This Dr is so conservative that I have had to go through pain and torture before he prescribed something stronger. I warned him that I needed something stronger. Every time in his office, it seems I have to beg to get something that works [...]. It's bloody embarrassing, and I should not have to do that. You can't take care of my pain doc? Send me to pain management [...]

Too difficult to make an appointment. If you want to make an appointment when calling, it is impossible. I've tried. Your answering message should reflect that it is mandatory to leave your phone number and wait for the call back. There is no choice.

Dr Yasharel rushes me during my appointments. He refuses to give me referrals. I asked him for a referral to see a dermatologist because I thought I had skin cancer. For a year, he refused to give me the referral. Finally, after i insisted, he gave me the referral and said that he was giving it to me because if he didn't, I would keep bugging him for it. It turned out that I did have skin cancer.

11/23/2016
Dr. Yasharel is always very prompt, takes time to review my medical history, explains things in a very clear way and listens to my questions. I never feel rushed when he is with me.
