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.

My provider had a snarky attitude, and seemed rushed and not sensitive. She did not get to know me (or my needs) well before giving me orders. I did not feel comfortable with her. In addition, I was told I was getting referred out for one need, and never received a call from the referral source.

I was rather appalled at the general lack of listening, and concern in addressing some very specific acute issues I had going on. There was a lack of compassion, as well as professionalism, and I left feeling entirely dismissed. The nurse supported Christina Olson was very attentive, and thorough. It was an odd appointment because I'd made it for just a general health, check-up after not seeing a doctor for some years---however in the intervening time I'd developed some very distressing, and worrying symptoms that I was eager, and rather desperate to address.

I switched doctors because my last doctor at [...] wasn't helpful. Christina is so helpful and discovered a serious health problem which could have been really bad if left untreated. I'm glad to say I'm a healthier person because of her and her nurses.

I often feel rushed when seeing my provider. I am limited to talking to her about 2 health issues per visit. That often is not working for me. It is frustrating and I'm seriously thinking of changing providers.

Olson is a very good nurse practitioner; a bit agressive with treatment options. I did feel taken care of; she listened carefully and was attentive to my needs. I recommend more time with patients to avoid multiple visits so frequently.

The care provider appeared to have their own agenda, and I did not feel that all of my concerns and symptoms were taken into account.

It's hard to get an appointment for care if I have an illness but regularly scheduled checkups are easy if I schedule the year before.

She listened to my repeated concerns and referred me to a specialist if I do not see improvement in the next two weeks.

Reception and medical assistant were excellent. However, provider was condescending, ignorantly judgmental, and told me right after introductions that she did not have much time for me (after I waited 4 months to see her). She wanted to treat me based off of a questionnaire I had answered, and never bothered to ask what I was there for. She was condescending, ignorantly judgmental, and made many false assumptions when she could have asked questions. She seems intelligent but treated me without compassion, listening, or a shred of empathy. [...]

Dr. Olson is scheduled to be out of the office [...], but despite this she made an extra effort to meet with me and take care of my needs. This was arranged even though her schedule was limited and fully booked. She was very knowledgable and attentive to my concerns and prescribed the specialty services that I needed right away. I'm very pleased with Dr Olson's expertise and costumer service and would recommend her friends and family alike.

While I understand the need for office visits to be swift and that providers have to cram patients into their schedule, I felt rushed and never even got to discuss one of my concerns.
