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.

Dr. Tamara Simmerman is the GREATEST Pediatrician on the planet. We love her so much and recommend her (and her husband) to everyone. She is so knowledgeable but also very kind and approachable. She never makes you feel stupid and does such a good job making the kids feel comfortable. My children all want to be doctor's because of her. She is the greatest. If all healthcare providers could be like her - things would be so much better. You are lucky to have her on your team.

Dr Simmerman always put our minds at ease and makes us always felt heard, she always listens and explains everything in a way we don't feel pressured rather that we are making a decision we want. she is amazing with my 6 year old daughter [...] and wouldn't haven't chosen anyone else for our son! We always recommend her to friends and family!

Recently, due to the pharmacy we use we had to call the office somewhere around 20-30 times over 2-3 days. [...] RN helped get [...] the meds he needed for his double ear infection. She was wonderful and had to talk to Tamara and even tried calling the pharmacy (who originally messed up the flavoring in the antibotic ordered). Every time I called she was the person to help me. Which was truly helpful in continuity of care. This is one of many reasons why we use and love thie doctors and staff at Valley (Providence) Young People.

[...] the front desk staff service has declined. have made seceral requests for contact information to be changed only to find out upon my next visit it hasnt. I do not feel as if the front desk staff pays attention to the clients coming in the door. if I didn't know the provider for the past 13 years I would not stay due to the front desk staff.

we love dr simmerman. the medical assistant /nurse for this visit was a little "green" he seemed unsure of how to handle our baby, was louder than expected when speaking to us and baby and just seemed new and slightly uncomfortable with the job.

Dr. Simmerman was so thoughtful in not only addressing questions to me (mom) but also my son. She also made a follow up call with me a few days after we saw her and remembered my son's birthday was approaching and wanted to make sure he was feeling better for that! So nice to have her do that!

Dr. Simmerman met with my husband and I for a prenatal visit as we are expecting within the month. She was knowledgeable when answering our questions and explaining the baby's upcoming visits. She explained things in an effective and thoughtful manner which showed respect for our beliefs and needs. Dr. Simmerman's personality shines through during our meeting which made us feel comfortable and excited to see her again. We cannot wait to see her for future appointments and we also will be referring others to her.
