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.

She saved my life twice. Once in November 2016 finding large blood clots in my right lung. Again in January 2017 discovering a bacteria infection in my blood. Both were serious medical issues. She is a super star doctor.

I live 4 hrs. away & on my last visit there were 3 road construction that I had not planned on & so was 30/40 minutes late. The pacemaker people & dr. took me in any way and were very nice about me being so late.

I was able to be seen quickly in an emergency situation. The office staff, nurses and assistants communicate well with each other and with me. Testing was scheduled right away with communication about results immediate via the patient portal.

Dr. Christiansen is very courteous, caring and thoughtful. She explains the issues with easy to understand language and is patient. I tell other friends about how good she is.

It took months to get into the provider. It takes way to long to see anyone.

The only problem I had was with a rescheduling issue. I had to postpone the first appointment due to a conflict that I had forgotten and was told I had to go back to the doctor at CCNW who had initially referred me. They also scheduled me for an ecco and then canceled it. When the second apt was scheduled they did the same thing even after I told them that I was suppose to see the doctor first. They insisted on scheduling an ecco which they subsequently cancelled. My daily schedule is rather hectic and it was frustrating to try to explain this to them and have them not listen to me, have me rearrange my schedule and then cancel.

A little frustrated that I have not received my test results back after waiting two weeks In fact I have called three times now trying to find out to only be peomised that someone will call me back and they have not. I have even expressed concern that what I was being tested for seems to be getting worse and I still haven't received a response.

This office visit went very smoothly. I appreciate that there is now a scribe for the doctor! It makes for a personal connection. with the exception of the front office receptionist(not rude, just not very friendly), everyone was very friendly and pleasant. Dr. Christiansen was very familiar with my medical records and responsive with regard to new concerns-overall a great visit!

The wait time of two months to see the doctor after suffering and being hospitalized for a stroke was unreasonable even though I was a new patient!

[...] Seems to me that individual patient circumstances are not considered a priority. I do realize that this office is probably short on staff and patient relationships, due to the type of practice it is. but I feel that they need more help and or not take new referrals if they cannot accommodate this load of patiemts. Even though I had good care overall, I feel they need to look at the overall waiting game. It has been difficult.

I had a new med I wanted to take and she checked other reports to confirm unlikely to be a problem. I was very pleased with the Dr following up in that manner.
