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.

[...] Dr. Fisher spends a lot of time with me addressing a variety of issues each time we meet, has good ideas and is a very good advocate for my care. She is talented and works very hard on her letters, recommendations and my meds.

[...] the care I receive from Dr. Fisher is the best I have ever received. [...] I think it's a tragedy that a patient has to wait 3-4 months for an appointment.

Dr.Fisher is absolutely amazing. I consider her a friend and the care she gives me is top notch. I cannot say enough about her compassion, bed side manner, knowledge, and the fact that she truly cares for her patients.

Dr. Fisher was the first doctor other than my PCP to pay attention and actually look at ALL my information about my pain and the first to really try more than just meds at first.

Dr. Fisher is awesome! She is knowledgeable, competent, and quite affable. One particular characteristic she lacks that many other doctors I've known have had in abundance is an overblown ego. She does not take offense at any alternate opinions I might have, she is willing to talk about anything.

This was m6 initial appointment with Dr. Fisher. She made arrangements for physical therapy. Made a change to my medications and discussed treatment options for my issues. Follow up care to discuss progress of pt and whether further treatment options would be required will be discussed next visit after mri is completed
