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. Wright's communication skills and ability to relate and understand my health condition is exceptional, and the best I have ever experienced from the many doctors I have seen. For example, he listened to and understood my inability to tolerate most medications which has been problematic all of my life, and he even cited a study that had shown a difference in ability to process medication (enzyme-related) between people in Japan and elsewhere [...]. It was beyond my expectation that when I took the supplemental bp medication that he prescribed ([...], which he believed there was a good chance I would tolerate), that I had no ill-effect. It has been 2 days so far, and my experience (knock on wood) has been remarkable. [...] This is just one example of the exceptional care I have experienced so far with Dr. Wright and his staff, as I can cite many more, and really sets Dr. Wright's care far above what I have found most everywhere else.

I was particularly impressed that Dr. Wright seemed unconcerned about the amount of time he spent with me. It is very rare these days to find a provider who is unhurried and willing to spend the amount of time he did.

I've had heart problems for the past 38 of my 87 years. Dr. wright is by far the best cardiologist I have ever been to. His office is the most professional in the building.

he takes any incredible amount of time and thoroughly explains everything that he is doing. He is perhaps the most knowledgeable doctor in the group of doctors that I see for my various medical conditions.

05/26/2017
I was very pleased with Dr. Wrights care. He was a little behind schedule, but he didn't try to rush through my appointment and exam. I have been in that situation before, in which docs whizz in and out, and I am left wondering why they even bothered to see their patients. Dr. Wright was very patient with all my concerns. He is a great doc.

Doctor discounted what I was experiencing. Not going into what I was telling him. Not listing to me telling him that something wasn't right. Things had changed. Everything is the same as before and comeback in six months.
