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.

I had a syncopal event where I briefly lost consciousness. I called my provider the next morning to see if he could fit me in to talk about it, and all he said was "go to the ER." To be fair, this is the only time in 2 years with this MD that I was poorly served.
