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.

I didn't need any referals that is why I left it blank. My big problem w/this office is trying to get an appointment. Very difficult! Didn't get to see my regular Dr. because couldn't get an appointment. I think the dr.'s are very well qualified, it is the problem of calling, being put on hold for 5 plus minutes and then not being able to get an appointment. They tell you to call back in three months, but when you call back in three months, they are already full. Not good patient service.

She may be knowledgeable but she is just way too hurried [...]
