Patient Ratings and Comments

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the 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 with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

This was a 1st time visit so the visit was mainly a "get to know each other" visit so it wasn't a deep, intense visit. I liked Dr. Amato and was please with the way she talked to me, and faced me while speaking, as I am deaf but wear a cochlear implant. I have found that not all physicians will do that. I am thrilled to have a primary care physician as my prior physician left Providence back in May. I look forward to remaining her patient for a very long time.

I am a new patient of Dr. Amato. My first impression is very positive. I'm looking forward to working with her and her nurse. I greatly appreciate it that both were fragrance free, as I am very sensitive to the chemicals in fragrances. Dr. Amato was especially interested in and respectful of my personal history and current challenges.

Have always had a good experience with this provider, although it is often difficult to make an appointment unless it is weeks or months in advance.

it took 4 months to get this new patient appointment because I was changing office locations. That seems a bit excessive to me. I also found it annoying that I had to hand full out all of my new patient information when that provider is part of the same Providence system and had access to my records already. I did really like the set up where I didn't have to wait in a waiting room with a bunch of sick people.

Dr Amato as always is the best. She is a good listener and gives you good advice about your health. She is one of the best Doctors I have had in my 60 years. Her nurse [...] also has be nice every time I come there. Also a nice and joyful person. As soon as she comes in the room it's always Hi how are you doing. They both are keepers. They also make a difference in the world.

Both Dr Amato & [...] were efficient. I would appreciate more eye contact & show of interest in me from Dr Amato. I was not asked if I had anything to bring up, but they did seem to listen when I brought up one thing. Unfortunately we all forgot to get back to that issue so it was not covered.

The Dr told me she did not have time for me and was just going to code me for an anxiety attack. I was there because my psychiatrist sent me as it was NOT and anxiety attack and I did not go to the ER in the night due to financial difficulties which greatly distressed the paramedics who took my vitals. Anxiety attacks do not last for six hours. She would not listen to what my Psychiatrist had to say, I did not want to come it as I am always treated as it is just my anxiety and this time, it definitely was not.

Provider was great! The amount of time I had to wait to schedule an appointment not so much. I scheduled the appointment in June but could only get an appointment in September.

I had to wait 6 months for this appointment and that was unacceptable. I spoke with an office supervisor on several occasion about this with no help what so ever. Didn't seem to matter to the office supervisor that I had been seeing an oncologist and needed this care to be continued. [...]

2 months from the initial appoinment set up is pretty long. If you can shorten the wait, do so.

I have no issues with Providence nor their staff. I and my Wife are always, always treated with the utmost respect, are always given the care we need in a professional and caring manner. Providence personnel are the best!

I was a bit annoyed that I had to fill out added paperwork about my medical history since ALL my information is already in the Providence system. I commented to the receptionist that I was in the system, she was looking at it as we spoke, but still had to fill out the questionnaire. That is/was (in my opinion) a waste of my time and an unnecessary, redundant and quite frankly an annoying exercise.

My husband and I feel ourselves extremely content with the health care we receive. When we consider moving away from Olympia due to climate, being able to replace this quality with another becomes a factor.

I have previously gone to a Dr. only when in a real emergency situation. I liked being part of a 'Family' concept, the preventative care, taking my financial needs into consideration, assisted with signing up for My Chart, and the personable experiences I had.
