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.

Berated me that I was late for my appt and that half o f my time slot was used up and x-rays could not be taken because I did not arrive early (1/2 hr) which I was not informed to do. I was on time and all my paperwork was filled out. I as put in my room 15 min late.

Dr. Peterson is an outstanding surgeon. He has done everything he can to both repair her knee post injury, he provides outstanding education, he cared enough to provide a long time for healing and has us set up for outstanding post op therapy as well. We couldn't be more thankful for the level of expertise and care that he provides.
