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.

Dr. Bonsack is one of the best doctor's I have ever seen. I recommended him to my late father-in law and he changed doctors. Dr. Bonsack was his primary care physician until he passed away. He was also very happy with Dr. Bonsack.

Dr. does not make eye contact when speaking. It makes him hard to trust. He referred me to a podiatrist not in my health insurance network, when I pointed this out, was told to find one on my own.
