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 Davies seems like a very competent doctor. There is a reason why I was referred to him by my PCP. However I did not feel at ease when I went to see him. Although he did not prescribe me a medication yet, pending my lab results, he said he most likely will recommend a medicine. I know he tried and he want to work with me in setting up plans or goals for my health, which I really appreciate.

Dr. Davies is the best! Very thoughtful & thorough, understanding, relates to patient. He is the first doctor that actually made progress on my health issue because he spent time explaining to the importance of the treatment, and gave examples of how it had worked in the past. Very compassionate & seems to actually care about patients. Would highly recommend.

I consider Dr Davies to be an exceptional physician who is interested in my total health (e.g., exercise, nutrition). He is like a "life coach."
 

09/24/2015
To be honest this was by far one of the worst Dr. visits I've experienced. This was my second time see Dr. Davies as a follow up appointment. The first time I was impressed and seemed like he cared and wanted to help with my health with. This time he spend less than 15 min with me, was extremely rude in his demeanor. He was not willing to listen or help. [...] I will no longer be a patient of Dr. Davies nor will I ever recommend him to anyone. [...]

While my hypothyroidism is very stable, I felt that more of a thorough assessment would be helpful. He literally didn't put a hand on me, just visually assessed my thyroid and talked with me about my concerns. I was thankful for his answers to my questions but was expecting more of an examination.

09/22/2015
Dr Davies is an experienced and knowledgable provider. He is not very personable and commented that he has seen 25 patients that day and kept his comments to a minimum in order to keep on schedule. I [...] would like thoughtful attention and courteous treatment during my time with the physician. I don't want to think I'm just another two minute encounter in his clogged schedule. [...]

The most important thing Matt did in my entire appointment came at the outset when he said, "I'm just going to listen for a while and ask you some questions." I cannot tell you how important it is to feel like you're being heard, especially when you're seeing a specialist for the first time. Matt clearly knows the world of endocrinology. [...]
