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.

First visit with Dr. Wales. Very responsive to my concerns and came up with a plan to begin dealing with my heart issues. Also, he had a "stand-in" nurse [...]. She was also exceptional. Both explained what was going on, what I needed to do and what I should expect.

Proviider is always in a hurry and I'm not comfortable taking up his time asking questions because I'm left with the impression I'm just one more name to cross off the list. The office staff has been incredible, especially receptionist, "[...]".

My referring GP placed an "Urgent" on all pages of the FAX [...]. I called Providence to verify that a referral had been made and it was verified [...]. I was then told that Providence would contact me with appointment details (8 business days!??). I had heard nothing from Providence by [...] so I called my GP (Dr. [...]). His office alerted him to the situation and within an hour, I was given the details of my appointment [...] I feel that my care was TOP-Notch and everyone I came in contact with did a great job but, there is a communication disconnect somewhere and I suffered for it.

I was extremely pleased with the entire staff at SH Cardiology. The nursing staff was caring and kind and assured me that they would take the best care of me. Dr. Wales was also very kind and caring. My appointment with cardiolgy was as a referral from SH ER so I was pretty nervous about the whole process. I need not have worried as much as everyone went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and well taken care of.

Knowledgable, but seemed in a hurry. Not interested in my 'story' of my symptoms. Too quick to move on to his agenda.
