A provider’s star rating is based on a Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey.

Providence strips identifying information from comments so they can be shared without jeopardizing confidentiality or patient privacy.

While I find Dr. Ho personable and professional in my 3 visits with her I sensed the business of the practice made our time seemingly rushed. I did not think she had reviewed my history, only recent blood work.

Dr Ho shows a strong interest giving appropriate guidance. I believe she has my best interest at heart. I do feel that if Providence is asking if my wait time is within 15 minutes, that number I feel could be an unrealistic number. At times a patient needs to have the time with the Dr. to ask questions, receive answers and maybe even have a bit of a personal conversation. It might even aid a Dr to know what's happening in a persons day-to-day life. I hope Providence is not placing mandatory time limits on their Dr. or patient visits. Sometimes 15 minutes is not long enough and I would hope that if for some reason I would have to wait longer the 15 minutes to see Dr Ho or even the NP, that it is because they needed to take a bit more time to give that patient a level of comfort and assurance. I would hope to get that same care as well. Don't take the personal care away just to meet a 15 minute time schedule.

Though I can view lab results, etc. on-line, I miss a phone call from the doctor or nurse. I know this takes additional time, but I have a couple questions that I just haven't taken time to make the call.

Dr. Ho is an excellent GP. The only issue is how far in advance you have to make appointments.

I do not feel I can have a discussion with my doctor. I feel even though I have to wait 30 to 45 minutes after the scheduled appointment time to see the doctor, I am on a time limit. Also, I do not feel free to discuss my concerns about my health.

Wait times, 45 min or greater. This will likely cause me to change providers, as I do not have this much time in my life. It would be nice to receive a call or a text if the provider is late. My appointment was at 1130 so if she was already running that late, I felt bad for others seeking care during that day

Dr. Ho takes time to listen to what I have to say and then we discuss it. I always feel she respects what I have to say and is willing to work with me. She is personable, caring and compassion, yet is direct in what she thinks is in my best interest.

[...]The wait time, unless it is really long, is not an issue for me. If it is an indication that the Dr. is taking his/her time with a patient, to answer questions, maybe have a brief personal conversation as a way of getting to know their patient better, to me is the mark of a Dr who cares. I would hope for the same time spent with me as well. Since I am a person who doesn't go to a Dr to often, it does make it hard to develop a personal relationship but I do appreciate Dr Ho's honesty and the interest she take when I do see her.

Doctors need to respect that the patient may have another appointment following their's and the patient's time is just as important as their's.

I did have a concern when I attempted to make an appointment for a pre op visit. The receptionist said Dr. Ho did not do pre op exams. I had to have my surgeon's office call to clear the path for me to make the appointment. When I called back, I was told I needed my annual physical and I would need two appointments, one for the pre op and one for my annual. I questioned the need for two appointments, but the receptionist, whose name I should have gotten, said this was how they had to handle it. When called to remind me of my appointment, the receptionist who called corrected the error.

Took two months to schedule yearly exam which had to be canceled by office, then took another two months to get back in, I was on a list available 4 days a week to come in if there were cancelations, had to see another doctor in group who had several openings on the day I called for an issue I was concerned about , perhaps my doctor is too busy, liked both care providers

Dr How is an excellent and caring physician. But the front office staff are either indifferent, incompetent or both. They seem to believe that it is they who are running the show. I'm in the process of finding a new provider as a result of having to deal with them. I'm not talking about the doctors or nurses in this regard, I'm talking about the awful administrative staff on the 2nd floor.
