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.

Should not take 3 months to see your primary doctor. Particularly since I have been seeing the same doctor since1978.

Dr. Rinaldi has been my doctor for almost forty years. He was my mom and dad's doctor also. He is excellent. [...] Most of my friends doctors are in this practice. Dr. Rinaldi's assistant [...] is excellent also.

Complete [...] to have to wait 6 months to get an appointment to get a regular allergy prescription refilled that has been used for several years effectively! Love Dr. Rinaldi but the health group set up is very poor for customer service!

Very long wait time to see for routine medicine review (2 months) and extremely long wait for annual physical exam (6 months) from the time I called for an appointment.

I have been seeing Dr. Rinaldi for over 35 years as my PCP, the only reason I would not recommend him to others at this time is because I know he has a full plate already [...]. Otherwise, I would and have highly recommended Dr. Rinaldi to numerous people over the years. This visit was different! I didn't feel that he was as connected to me and my situation as he has been in the past. Over the years it gave me peace knowing that I could get the help I needed and that he would go out of his way (as much as possible) to ensure I was taken care of and not suffering in pain.

Dr. Rinaldi has been my physician for over 35 years so if there were any problems he would not. My medical experience with him has actually been a very rewarding one and thanks to him identifying certain medical problems has very likely prolonged my life. Dr. Rinaldi pulls no punches and tells it like it is but in a very caring way.

I always have so many issues its hard to get them all covered in the time allotted. I often have to wait till next visit then other issues come up ...so it might take months to get back to a problem from earlier. I see so many specialist that you sometimes get overwhelmed by all the appts. so I can sometimes put off extra visits with dr Rinaldi.

I have seeing Dr. Rinaldi for 36+ years and have build an excellent re pore with him as he has helped me through not just my physical health issues, but he has been a tremendous support during some of the most difficult times throughout my life. He has always made me feel special and genuinely cared about as an individual.

Dr. Rinaldi is the most wonderful doctor and he should teach others how he does such a good job!! Really, he needs to share his type of knowledge and expertise to help the younger doctors learn people skills also. Thank you Dr. Rinaldi!!!:)

I've been seeing Dr Rinaldi for many, many years. Even when I moved away from area and came back to Spokane he welcomed me back as a patient. I feel we can speak frankly and he has always been up front with me and never talked down to me. He's a great doctor and isn't afraid to share his opinions and advice with me.
