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 have never had a bad experience or anything near bad with Dr Sato. I have complete confidence in him and am grateful that he is one of "my team". In fact, I have more confidence in him than any other doctor on "my team" and wish he could/would be my primary physician. He is the only one that really pays any attention to what the other doctors on "my team" including my primary physician have to say about my condition and care. He cares more than the rest of them.
