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.

Dr Kenneth Shiozaki is an excellent physician. He was genuinely concerned. He listened to what I had to say. I especially appreciated that he was not constantly on a computer instead of having a face to face conversation. He was knowledgeable, spoke in a manner I understood, and gave practical advice. I would definitely choose to see him again. He did an excellent job. When I called back, hours later, to say I was still miserable, he called me right back and phoned in a new script which provided immediate relief. I understand there is a great deal of attention addressing opiate addiction. But the pendulum might have swung too far the other way. After filling the smooth muscle relaxant script, I remained miserable. I had drag myself back to the pharmacy a second time to get pain management medication.

the doctor didn't appear very competent or well versed in medical issues. he was unable to clearly diagnose me so I left puzzled without any clear answers. I felt it was a complete waste of time and effort.

After this visit, I removed a lipoma [...]. I visited there to taking a stitch away [...]. He explained why it's swelling after the lipoma has removed. But I still have a hard time to lean on a chair or sleep on my back. because it's uncomfortably bigger. Dr. said it would be smaller in a few months that means I would suffer to sleep more than a month! I would like to hear a 2nd opinion. Is it possible in your group? It is bigger than before. I need a second opinion
