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.

[...] When he asked me why I was there, I barely had time to reply before he told me that my ekg was the same as the last time I was there in 2009 and nothing had changed. There was nothing he could do to help my [...] and had told me that before. [...] I apologized for taking up his time and was told that I wasn't, but he went on to say that he was surprised my doctor would send me a second time [...] I left more worried than when I arrived. I'm sure you have a fine organization, but will go elsewhere for professional cardio care.

Dr. Whisenant is the best cardiologist I have had. He makes sure I have all the information I need. He also follows up to make sure I am comfortable with any changes to my meds. Excellent staff as well. I have recommended him and Providence Health to several family members and will continue to do so.

I came to see Dr. Whinesant for a second opinion and was very impressed with him. He said he was going to contact my regular cardiologist and recommend different medication. He also said I should have a ekg around December. I Thanked him for his insight. The next day, I decided That I would like him to be my regular cardiologist and I called his office and talked to [...], his receptionist, and relayed the information. I also asked her if he could call [...] with my new prescription. She said she would contact his nurse. I never heard anything. I waited about 9 days. Then I called [...] and told her I never heard from the nurse and my prescription was never filled. It is now [...] and still no contact. The Doctor was great but follow up on me being his regular patient and having my prescription filled has gone by the wayside. [...] said the nurse would call me and nothing has happened!

My first appointment was supposed to have an echocardiogram scheduled, but someone forgot to schedule it. I had to make another trip to the office to get it done. I also had not had a EKG done in a year, and thought it might be a good idea to have one done. Dr Whisenant didn't feel it was necessary.

The Doctor I visited was wonderful & answered all my questions satisfactorily. But the followup regarding my medications with your Spokane office was extremely poor. [...] Very inefficient & the staff was uncooperative! [...] I was very dissatisfied. Your doctors provide wonderfulcare but your office is so large that it seems the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing!!

I've been seeing Dr. Whizenant since moving to the valley and I will continue to be his patient as long as he practices here. I have also been to Spokane at Sacred Heart Medical Center and was very impressed with the quality of care I received and the exceptional staff.
