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.

I waited for over an hour for the dr to see me. She is very nice, however didn't really help solve my issue. I also asked to be referred to a dermatologist and she asked me why and told me she could prescribe what I needed. I wanted a derm just to check my skin, no specific reason but also told her I have back acne that I wanted to have looked at. She told me she would prescribe me something, but when I went to pick it up she prescribed ben gay! I have no idea why since that is something I could purchase over the counter and more importantly, that doesn't treat back acne!!! I still haven't been referred to a derm.

Was not impressed with the quality of the physical I received. Also my concern of having many headaches lately was not addressed as I expected.... She automatically said it was stress and asked me if I wanted Tylenol or Motrin ( I told her I was not under any stress which is why I was concerned). Even after this apt my headaches continiue in a centralized area....would have appreciated my request to lookinto these issues further.

Initially the doctor took care with finding out my health problems and providing referrals. I informed her of very low energy levels last year. I have not improved. I am on Permanent Disability and requested a request for a parking place card (permanent) because of the problem. I paid the $15.00 fifteen dollars for thr for which was filled out incorrectly. I called the office the following day, and emailed Dr. Xu via my chart and, I am still awaiting an answer. During my visit I requested referrals to both the cardiologist and neurologist. I explain via my chart that I had not had the energy to follow up with previous referrals. She emailed to come into the office for the referrals and did not give them to me. As I stated SHE IS USUALLY VERY GOOD, so; this is strictly for the [...] office visit.

Totally clueless on what I was explaining was overwhelming. Very uneducated in type 1 diabetes. Gave ridiculous unsolicited advice and made me feel worse and I was there because I was depressed and having panic attacks and made it worse.

During my visit, I was concerned I had the flu. I informed the Dr. my granddaughter was diagnosed with Flu A 2 days prior and I was her caregiver. I was not tested for the flu (no nasal swab), but was prescribed Tamiflu and a cough syrup. I requested the prescription be sent to a different pharmacy. The Tamiflu prescription was entered and sent to the previous pharmacy, but not the cough syrup. I had to call after hours to get another Dr. to change the pharmacy for the Tamiflu to then learn the cough syrup hadn't been prescribed, yet Ibuprofen had been prescribed (we didn't discuss this medication, if we had I would have told her I had that on hand at home already so no need to prescribe more).

When I was checked in the nurse was very impatient and had an intolerable air to him. he dismissed everything I said. I then had to wait an entire hour for the doctor to see me. at the half hour mark I went to see what was taking so long and they just told me to wait. Never had I experienced such rude dismissive service
