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.

I was very early for my appointment and I was fine with sitting in the waiting room when Dr. Boulet's nurse, [...] came out to make sure I knew when my appointment was scheduled and that they would try to get me in as soon as possible. I thought that was very thoughtful of her.

Dr. Boulet is a real joy to talk with and feel at ease with. He doesn't put himself on a pedestal as so many other doctors do and listens to my concerns and answers them so I can totally understand what he is saying. He's the best!!!

09/06/2016
my only issue is that I was seeing this provider for a cardiac issue which my PCP felt needed to be evaluated quickly. Dr. Boulet gave me the impression that my condition was not that of an urgent manner. I am also a chronic pain patient and he seemed dismissive of my pain issues.

07/17/2016
Dr.Boulet was arrogant, lacked empathy of any kind, was repeatedly condescending and rude. He kept talking over me and was not listening to what I had to say. He had already dismissed me as hopeless. He was not interested in being a partner in my care team. He pretty much said, "because I was obese I was wasting his time." I was frankly flabbergasted by his behavior as I had heard he is an extremely good Cardiologist. He refused to run the test I was already scheduled for and ordered an echo-cardiogram instead. I still have not been called about the results of that. [...]

this visit was excellent

The only negative experiences I have encountered is trying to make future appointments to see my physician during the time period specified by him. This has been and continues to be a recurring problem.

04/28/2016
My care provider this time was a cardiologist--he listened more than I expected him to :-), but I wish he could have slowed down just a tiny bit, or had been given more time to talk with me. He was very nice, very caring and said caring things to me. He explained things I asked, but I just did not get enough time to ask. No one from the office, either, has called me back [...] to let me know how my monitor tests looked and no one thought to ask for a release when I was there, for previous providence tests that were ran. I have since had a heart ultrasound as well and no one still, has called me, even to check in. Also found out that someone entered my insurance wrong and my work phone number incorrectly (receptionist on this visit, or?). Otherwise, the front desk was really nice and professional.

04/27/2016
I love you office, my doctor(Dr. Boulet),nurse [...], and supporting staff. Everyone is so concerned and are easy to talk to. Your new system of "my chart" online is so helpful.

Dr. Boullet and the staff at Spokane Cardiology are top notch. He always knows the latest information on all my health concerns and gives me accurate information on any health studies I ask about. The staff and his assistants are all very efficient and pleasant to deal with. No one seems stressed. I feel that this particular doctor is the best one I have ever been in contact with.
