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.

Appointments are never obtained in a timely manner. There are also no callbacks to obtain someone else's cancellation appointment, which would be appreciated and very helpful.

Everything about this care provider was as expected since I had already read Yelp reviews on this provider & decided this was the type of doctor I needed. I think we get along really well. What I REALLY appreciate is the time spent on me during the doctor's visit. (As opposed to feeling rushed.)

I have difficulty with appointment call center getting follow-up appointments within 2 week time frame. The doctor has asked me to have the schedulers check with her in order for me to get a timely appointment. I was frustrated today trying to get in to see Dr Richey next week. when you have a condition which requires the doctors immediate attention, I think the schedulers should be more flexible. Dr Richey is excellent and has followed up by telephone with me regarding my condition.
