Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

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.

The Doctor did not give any written instruction for my prescriptions, which gave me a negative experience.

Might not recommend only because of his nurse or assistant.

I had told the MA and the Doctor that I was all set with prescriptions and refills from my previous doctor but a new order for prescriptions was sent to my pharmacy anyway and rather than 90 day supplies for all the medications it was a mix of 30 day for some and 90 day for others. As I said, I already had all the prescriptions I needed from my previous doctor so I simply cancelled Dr. Balauag's prescriptions. This was my only disappointment in an otherwise excellent healthcare experience.

The explanation seemed to be read from a script. I was not given options. I was not given pros and cons.

In one situation I wanted more feedback from my primary provider regards a particular hormone treatment. i am getting the feeling that he doesn't really think I should pursue this course of action, but he hasn't directly addressed his concerns. I would like some straight answers regards this issue.

"Bedside manner" isn't what my last doctor had.
