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.

I have had issues with doctors and physical therapist before not understand my needs, or rushing me through appointments, they were always cold and impersonal. Dr. Perez is outstanding, I referred my late mother to her, and was very happy with the care that she also received.

Dr Perez is one of a kind! I've seen a lot of Drs over my lifetime and she is the only one since [...] that you can tell REALLY cares. So glad I found her after my horrible experiences with Dr [...]! All she wanted to do is pump me full of anti depressants instead of finding the real problem. [...] Thank you again Dr Perez!

Dr. Perez is as good or better than [...] was, but her case load is too large already. I think she is your best internal medicine physician on staff by a large margin, but do I want her case load increased even more, no way. Get more doctors that really care about their patients [...]

When my wife called to make the appointment, we were told that Dr. Perez was no longer my physician because I had not seen her in the last two years. The receptionist has said she would need to check with Dr. Perez to see if she would still take him as a patient. We have gone years between doctor visits (through our lives) and never have been told we were no longer a patient. If this is your policy, it would be very helpful to have some sort of notification that we were being "dropped" as a patient and it would avoid any misunderstandings.

the check out receptionist called and chastised me for not making a routine follow up appointment in six months. I did not know I was supposed to make an appointment that far in advance and did not appreciate being chastised for not following a procedure I did not know about.

[...] This provider and her nurse, and the Cardiology nurses on my health care team give rapid response to MyChart questions. AND the labs go to MyChart for me to print out. Therefore the provider or nurse do not need to call me for every test, UNLESS they have a concern about the results.

I like everything about this Dr. and clinic except 3 times I've been advised to go to ER or immediate care. When I don't have a prearranged appointment she is not available for anything.
100

03/15/2016
Dr. Perez is an excellent primary care (internist) physician. I do not call with questions, but use MyChart when I need to followup on an appointment or to ask about significant medical conditions or changes. She is excellent about promptly and thoroughly replying to emails and providing needed advice or scheduling an office visit for direct followup. When I was in Seattle for major surgery in January, she had her nurse send a MyChart message to schedule me for a followup as soon as possible after my return home. When I saw her in the visit, she was familiar with the medical records sent by the Seattle specialists. She is an exceptional physician who care about her patients and their health.

Completing this for my Mother; using myCharts and communicating with Dr. Perez has been so valuable [...]. Dr. Perez is absolutely the most caring, understanding physician my Mother has ever had. With my Mother's diminishing memory issues, she is unable to grasp and retain what she is told. Dr. Perez and her staff are excellent.
