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.

He should have explained why he asked about my living will instead of scaring the heck out of me.

New location is more difficult to get to and is not as personable as old location. With the typist in the room as a third person at the time of conferencing, patient is not comfortable with asking more personal questions because of privacy. I know because I had other issues to discuss but not comfortable asking with third person in room.

we find it impossible to get an appointment when we need it, as they are al, full and we drive from Montana to go to this provider. they say to get an appointment for Oct. to all in Aug. first and they all filled up you may get one on. the day and then when you get set up. to be there they call at seven PM with achange of date or time I know it is six months and it is hard to. understand why you can not make an appointment for October when you are in the office inApril

My dr was confused about my condition and treatment history. There were scribes in the room and I didn't feel comfortable questioning my physician about my concern with his confusion. I didn't feel I had a chance to ask questions about things I was experiencing with my health.
