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.

I was very impressed with the male receptionist at the Valley Clinic. He greeted me and asked if he could help me as soon as I entered the reception area. He was very pleasant and courteous.

I like the Doctor and Staff however I spent 40 minutes waiting in the exam room but had to get back to work before the Doc showed up. I believe all Patients need to be given the time to address health needs and if someone is taking to long it should be handled differently. [...]

This was my initial appointment with Dr.Allen Skidmore. He's easy to talk to, asked pertinent questions, gave me appropriate advice, and scheduled a followup in two weeks, and indicated he will order tests to determine the results of his instructions. He will also confer with my other specialists.

I have found Dr. Skidmore to be a good and caring physician. After I had received my blood work numbers on My Chart, Dr. Skidmore sent me a message suggesting I should reduce my cholesterol medication by 50%. I sent him a message asking if that would raise my cholesterol numbers too much and he responded that because my numbers were very good to start with, reducing this medication might raise the numbers a little, but not to a less than good number. I also asked if this reduction in medication might help reduce so of the body aches that sometime accompany this medication and he said it might, but he couldn't guarantee that. In the past I've asked him a few health related questions through My Chart, and he has always responded in a prompt and professional manner.

He did extra research outside of my office visit and found new medicines for me to try when others were not working. He kept trying until we found the best combination of meds and dosages. Very patient and thoughtful.
