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.

My provider has always given me answers to all of my health questions in a most comprehensive and friendly manner. I couldn't ask nor expect more, her service has always been excellent.

Sara did not seem comfortable making eye contact and often looked behind me while speaking.

my experience overall was good, I mean, I think she recommended a reasonably appropriate course of treatment, but her exam was minimal and my symptoms persist, so I'm concerned I will have to return. same day appointment was great though.

it did seem in my last appt that the doctor did not have very much time to spend due to a very busy schedule, she was a little rushed but did a good job in the time provided

my only concern is that she may not be taking my genetic immune deficiency seriously

Dr. Benveniste has been the primary care provider for my three children for the past 3+ years. She gives them unparalleled care, has a wonderful manner with them, and I have the utmost confidence and trust in her judgment. Frankly, I can't imagine taking them to any other doctor. We love her.

I have enjoyed Dr. Benveniste's unparalleled medical care both for myself or for my children over the past 6+ years. I have recommended her to others on countless occasions, and shall continue to do so. I can't think of any other doctor I would trust my children with more than her.

Again, the provider was courteous but I felt, gave an unnecessary referral. The clinic was very crowded and I got the impression that providers needed patients in and out in order to see everyone

The provider left the room at the end of the visit without giving me any instruction. I came out and asked the nearest MA/nurse (person sitting at a computer nearby) for my AVS. She then printed it out and gave it to me. I'm also not entirely confident that Dr. Bienveniste knows the recommendations for when pap smears are due since she suggested I get another one when I'm not due for another year at least.

I actually called to make an appointment with my regular provider, but he wasn't available for days and I needed to see someone sooner given that I was struggling with my asthma. In all fairness to the provider I saw on this particular visit, I find most experiences with other providers regarding my asthma disappointing. It's a chronic condition that sometimes requires medical attention and my PCP knows exactly how to treat it effectively. Other providers try, but all seem to have different approaches on how to treat it and most aren't willing to look at my chart, see how it's been treated in the past, read the notes and follow the same protocol. It's frustrating because these are always Swedish providers so they have access to the information; I don't know why it's regularly ignored. I even tell them about the info in my chart and still find they don't seem interested in treating my asthma the same way. End result when I see other providers regarding my asthma is that my issue is not typically resolved and I oftentimes get sicker, wind up in the ER and eventually wind up seeing my PCP to treat it correctly because it wasn't treated correctly the first time. Pretty frustrating, to be honest.

The doctor tends to be a bit vague on offering opinions, which lowers my confidence. It's nice to be able to have wiggle room on interpretations, but it doesn't work well for me.
