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.

Dr. Cole explains your medical problem so you can understand why you need tests to help decide next steps.
Swedish Patient

I had a good experience .
Swedish Patient

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.
