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.

I came in for my annual physical check-up. It was over in about 10-15 minutes -- shortest annual I've ever had. Seemed too short.

Dr. Philip K. Capp, MD - I am 71 yrs. old. He is the only doctor I have ever gone to that listens to you, is calm, and responds in a considerate manner about my health issue.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Capp is a wonderful doctor.
Swedish Patient

Amount of time doctor spends with patient minimal at best. Dr. seems to rely on notes and speeds through appt. [...] the care at the primary care office seems disorganized and with very little follow-up. For instance, after being referred for a breast exam, the record stated I had a breast disorder [...]. The same with bone density test which stated I had had my ovaries removed, which I have not. Early in my relationship with this office I was extremely displeased with this office. The message seems to have gotten through because my care has been excellent since that time. (Except for the record issue.)
Swedish Patient

Since this was my very first appointment with the doctor I wish they would have scheduled me for at least 60 minutes.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Capp and the nurses at his office are fantastic. They have changed what I come to expect from health care providers.
Swedish Patient

Great! Super friendly. Talked fast but I didn't feel rushed. Didn't have many issues was just a routine visit so I don't have much to go off though
Swedish Patient

Short appt's, short appt, SHORT APPOINTMENTS!!! Takes me 30 mins to get there for a 10 min appt.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Capp and his staff has ALWAYS be friendly and even though the check-up is for my son he always asks how I'm doing. I would highly recommend him and his staff. Thank you for always caring!
Swedish Patient

Generally, provider and patient should have more time together. I always forget things to ask and have to call back later because I feel rushed.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Capp was short with me. He refused to tell me the name of a medication that I might be able to use for my [...]. When I started to ask again he cut me off. He made me feel terrible. [...]
Swedish Patient

All been good!!...
Swedish Patient

Dr. Capp is the best doctor I have ever had.
