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.

Did not follow up with need for nuclear CT for the last 8-12 months, first didn't have flu shot, then "didn't have time" to administer it, then forgot to administer it. Had to go to another provider for a Hep A shot. Did not follow up with labs, only to find out on day of visit that they're weren't any b/c lab lost blood, "lost" medical paperwork, said I had taken it back with me at last visit and miraculously "found: it on the day of visit five weeks later.
