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.

Very caring dr.

Best surgeon I've ever had!

Always a great experience, I just LOVE her.

The Dr. listened to me had read all the chart notes and knew I was scared and concerned and address all the issues.

Wonderful Dr.

Good appt., went well.

Best care I have ever received from anyone. Thank you. There is a wonderful peace in the environment of the office and with the Dr.

Once at the site everything was quite good. Getting there through referrals and varying directions & information was difficult & confusing.

She is a very caring person. She really listens to your concerns even about problems you may have in your personal life.
