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.

Nurses and counsellor is great. Dr. Pisano is a burn out case. He let a rash due to medication go and it was life threatening. i asked him about side effects from a recent blood pressure med. He told me it was eczema, gave me a referral to a dermatologist. This is twice this [...] has blown me off. [...]

The doctor did not exhibit care (passion) for patient health or patient's health questions or concerns. The doctor seems to be rushing to complete the visit and to see other patients. It appears that the doctor is under to pressure to see (and care) for as many patients as possible. I did see and spent less than 15 minutes with the doctor.

my provider is excellent, however the last appointment I had to wait 40 minutes to see doctor and felt I was rushed trough appointment and did not get any feedback on certain critical questions I asked, such as Blood work and colonoscapy. The prior appointment I ran into traffic, was 5 minutes late and was turned away!
