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.

As the provider was an hour behind (to no fault of her own), I felt my appt. was rushed. I would have liked more time for Q&A.

I never feel rushed through my appointment with Dr. Bumstead. I feel she is always willing to give me the time and focus on my issues, not just rushing off to another patient like other offices I have been to in the past. This is one of the main reason I have chosen her as my primary care doctor.

She was really good Dr. the reason I saw her instead of my regular Dr. is Because my doctor left this Practice. I would of liked to have this Dr. see me but she immediately let me know she was just my temporary Dr. while they hired a new Dr. to take Dr. [...]'s spot. this made me feel as if I was a burden to her already busy schedule she was friendly none the less just didn't look interested in my care just looked at my wrist explained what it might be sent me for X-rays but didn't seem to care to know more about me or any of my health issues except what I was there for. witch I guess that's ok. I was just used to my doctor asking me about everything when I went to see her, it made me feel like she cared.

Dr. Bumstead has been my primary care provider for almost 5 years. She is excellent in all areas. Once in awhile When I make an appointment, I can't see her directly and have to see an assistant ( but the service has still always been good).

In my last visit with Dr. Bumstead she had to fit me in her busy schedule as I am going through a traumatic time right now. She has referred me to get additional help as well. I am not sure what or where I would be at this time if I did not visit her and get the help she provided, she is the most understanding and compassionate doctor that I have ever been to! I cannot express the gratitude and appreciation I have for her.

I have been seeing Dr. Bumstead for over 15 years; she is always friendly, comes in with a smile and genuinely asks how I am. She sits when speaking to me. She answers all questions thoroughly and makes sure all information is understood. She offers alternatives if available. I moved to [...] and commute 45 minutes to see her, I don't want to change doctors because I like her so much!
