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. Leimgruber has been a great care provider and I will miss him very much. I was sad to hear of his retirement because I have such confidence in him. He is gentle, kind and his expertise is exceptional. I wish him the very best in his retirement.

He was genuinely concerned when I tried to assure him that my blood pressure goes crazy an the doctors office. He ordered a prescription to get it down. My blood pressure dropped at least 50 points before the prescription was ready an hour or two later. I checked it often and it was normal after that.
