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 had a medical problem that was bothering me but couldn't schedule a regular appointment for a month. So I called to see if Dr. Borovay could see me that day. Even though his schedule for the day was full, I made time for me at the end of his day. Can't ask for better care than that!

Dr. Borovay is excellent and I have been very satisfied with the care and advice I have received from him. However, it can often be difficult to schedule an appointment with him in a timely manner. While I don't mind seeing the other doctors in the practice, I would prefer to see my doctor. It would be better if Providence could improve timely appointments with doctors. (This is not a criticism of Dr Borovay - he has been very good about responding to my emails and squeezing me in when I had urgent concerns).

11/27/2017
Really like Dr. Borovay. Just wish he was not so busy. Very hard to get an appointment in a reasonable amount of time. My physical was booked 3 months in advance and for a same day appointment, he almost always has to fit me in on his own as same days are always booked (even when I call 1st thing in the morning). But he does always fit me in when I need him to (maybe 2x per year).
100

11/17/2017
Dr B and his nurse [...] were excellent/compassionate/respectful. I only come to providence because they(Dr B and [...]) are truly caring. They listen to patient concerns, look at the patient rather than the clock, and really help those that need help. I hope providence does everything possible to keep them as most medical groups don't have the caliber that these individuals represent.

10/14/2017
took appx 3 months to obtain an appointment to have blood retested and skin tags removed. All I was able to get accomplished was the blood work. I was told that I could not have blood work and skin tags removed at same appt due to the doctor being scheduled one patient after another. Was told to schedule another appt for the skin tag removal which took appx 2 months to get [...]. I felt like I was rushed out of the office because he needed to see other patients. This example of care has become more common over the last few years and has deteriorated to what has been described. I have been with this facility for many years but am actively looking for another provider

I have been a patient of Dr. Borovay's for several years. He has made himself available whenever there is a need. I could not be happier with any other doctor.

Borovay is always excellent. My only issue is that it's very difficult to get an appointment because he has so few openings. But he did squeeze me in, which I appreciate. And he didn't make me feel like that ... he really spent time with me and I didn't feel rushed.

Dr. Borovay and his nurse [...] are both excellent. They both listen to what the patient says, have wonderful bedside manners, and really do their best to help you even if they don't know yet what is happening. I only wish that Dr. B could have longer appointments. He explained to me that he has a lot of older patients, who often have more health conditions and need more time. I absolutely don't mind waiting, as I understand how much he wants to help his patients. Just wish he had more time to do so.

06/30/2017
Dr.B. is awesome. He is easy to talk to. Even went as far as showing me how to stretch. I pull leg cramps often.

When I saw Dr. Borovay, everything was fantastic, however when I was unable to get an appointment with Dr. Borovay and had to see another Dr. in the office, I was quite disappointed. Lots of confusion is getting and scheduling referrals and in communications with this other Dr's staff.

The office is very busy. I had a positive home pregnancy test and only wanted it confirmed with the office. It's the only way I could get a referral to my ob-gyn. They wanted to originally schedule me 3 weeks from the date that I called. That seemed very unreasonable. I advocated for myself and they managed to fit me into the schedule at a time that was convenient for me [...].

I have always had an incredible experience with Dr. Borovay, and I can honestly say he is the best doctor I have ever had. I always tell people to go to him. Not only does he make you feel comfortable and easy to open up about, he knows his stuff. He kinda reminds me of Columbo where he just seems like a chilled guy who some people don't take seriously, but he is a genius and always cracks the case. One of the things I like best about Borovay is [...]. She is a bundle of sunshine and love, and you can't beat the two of them together. they are an incredible team who make a doctor's appointment an enjoyable experience. I also love the receptionists. There is the one main one who is just the sweetest friendliest lady, and all the other ones are really awesome too. The whole dynamics of Borovay's team is phenomenal. I wish all my Healthcare experiences were as good as they always are when I visit Dr. Borovay and His team. I think they should all get a raise because they do such a good representation of Providence, but I know one survey from a patient doesn't make payroll decisions. I hope Providence recognizes how lucky they are to have Dr Borovay, [...], the receptionists, and everyone else they have in that office. [...]

Doctor is always pleasant, friendly and courteous - much appreciated! Recommended blood tests are a little more extensive than I could possibly need - I really don't like paying for a test that is extremely unlikely to apply to me.
