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.

poor lab wait time and double check in

Very happy with Dr. Bernard as PCP. However, the difficulty of gaining an appointment specifically with him within a reasonable time if something comes up out of regular checkups is concerning. I know, the team concept has been discussed with me.

There should be more personnel to handle appointment/phones in the patient service area.

Dr. Currigan is excellent... But I have to wait too long for an appointment.. (months) My typical health care issues deserve shorter response time (days). I frequently end up seeing PA's, which is not my first choice. It seems to me Providence has convoluted his value to patients by making him a part time administrator and limiting access to patients, thereby restricting his value (to me and others) as a family physician. Access to a family physician who knows your medical background is what I have been paying for, for over 30 years.

Nothing against Dr. Currigan, but he is so hard to see, I wouldn't recommend him to my friends or coworkers.

11/29/2016
I am just a little confused. Dr. Currigan explained that he was going to refer me to a physical therapist and to a doctor who would perform a nerve conductive test. I left without any info on either but expect I will receive a call or letter in my mail?? I hope soon!

Prior to contact, my provider read recent medical report and finding of another provider and was well aware of my needs. He found my condition improved and therefore extended my next appointment from 3 months to 6 months.

I have always been treated with respect and providers show they care about your health and have always been able to talk to or ask any questions and get an answer.

I've been treated with such respect going all the way back to my very first visit. Very attentive to my needs, and has always made sure to listen to everything I've had to say. Also is and always has been very thorough when looking into concerns of mine and/or when ordering tests or following up with results.

Dr. Currigan is always great at listening and he takes my concerns seriously, which I appreciate. He calls in refills promptly, refers me to specialists when needed, and replies via e-mail in MyChart if I have a question. He's a doctor I know I can rely on. I trust his expertise. Plus, I know he has empathy towards his patients.

I have a very complicated medical history due to many injuries from my military service. My personal life was in shambles due to the problems from these injuries and cancer. Moving around a lot prevented any personal and trusting relationship with a medical provider. Dr. Currigan is solely responsible for helping me get everything in order and on track to have the best quality of life available to me. I have had contact with hundred's of doctors in the past twenty years and Dr. Currigan stands head and shoulders above them all. He was a God send for me during a very troubling time. I cannot sing his praises enough.

Dr Currington has shown himself to be very knowledgeable and concerned for his patients.

I have had no bad experiences with my provider, Dr Currigan. The only concern is it is difficult to get an appointment with him when a problem arises as his office hours are so short. Otherwise he is great in his care and concern. I have had no problem being worked in to see someone else and then following up with Dr. Currigan.

I am amazed at the service I received thru Dr. Currigan and the wound clinic coordinating on a wound vac hook up.I wish the [...] hospital ran as efficient as your hospital and clinic does . After the great service I received it is easy to see why your hospital facility is in the top 100 for care in the nation .

Dr. C. has been very good about listening to me and answering any questions I have. I really like the my chart its a much better way to get through to the doctor and get a fairly quick response. It is more efficient than tying up the nurses time. Dr. C is very good about responding.

Dr. Currigan is very detail oriented and thorough, I like his professionalism and down to earth approach to medicine. He treats both myself and my husband and we are very pleased with his care and medical knowledge! He treats us with respect and a genuine sincere caring of our needs! Thank you Dr. Currigan!

The dr is very personable and knowledgeable!!! The wait before the visit was exceptionally long and the only negative part of the visit... If people had to wait that long for my services I would be out of business... time is money to all of us on both sides of the table...and an appointment that is set three months ahead should be on time baring an emergency...

Been with this clinic for 15 years. The only reason I do not rate it very good [...] is the inability to get an appointment with my PCP for an illness or injury that should require a bit more priority. While my PCP explained the Providence "Team" approach, it is always my preference to see the guy who knows me best.

Very friendly.

Waiting time 15 mi before but 45 min sitting in room. 15 min to see Dr too little and expensive too high.No exam,, just heart and lungs. just sit and answer questions. I did have EKG and appointments made for lab and Echo Cardiogram. What about an exam for tumors ETC or are these a think of the past?

We like the doctor, but [...] an urgent need can be told to wait 3 months.
