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. Cole is always a great about fully listening, answering questions, trying the least intrusive treatment first, following up with tests if that doesn't solve the problem, and either providing the right treatment or referring you to another specialist if that's what he believes is your best alternative. He has been with me through back pain, physical therapy, injections and finally referral for a surgeon to review my problem and an MRI. He has respected my preference to take the more conservative path until that was no longer an option. I cannot say enough good things about the excellent care I have received from Dr. Cole.
