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.

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.

drs. in general, usually seem preoccupied and unprepared. They have records and check them of course but if they were a mechanic seeing my car I would expect and demand they pay more attention, when I tell them about the problem(s) I am experiencing. It is rude and un-reassuring.

Dr Christensen used an assistant to take down notes which enabled her to totally focus on discussing my status and results of my test instead of focusing on typing into a computer. This is a real bonus. I wish more doctors would do this.

Dr. Christensen, in fact all the staff were very kind and professional. I came with a list of questions and left with them all answered.

She brought 2 scribes in with her so she could totally listen and talk to me instead of having to put it all in the computer herself. I finally got to address some issues I've had for quite awhile. She answered all my questions. What a relief! Best visit ever.
