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.

Dr. Simon has been my sleep doctor for twenty years. We have a good history. PA. [...] is a different story.

I was referred for a medication adjustment which I got. The majority of my visit was waiting for the dr. & listening to the dr. threatening me & basically telling me I was lying & making excuses.

one suggestion is for office staff to pay attention to and respect Doctor's recommendation. I was told at the sleep center to sleep till 10 but the office staff woke me up with a call at 8.

The consultant at first, the sleep test, and the following all were excellent. I could not expect more.
