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.

2 1/2 hours late - Doc spent about 4 to 6 minutes w/me. No discussions, no choices, no review of condition.
Swedish Patient

this was strictly to see if surgery was needed and told very quickly it was not a possibility. the doctor was precise and very friendly, his explanations made total sense. I would highly recommend him, the entire Swedish hospital.
Swedish Patient

The doctor has lots on his plate. The few minutes I talked to him on 1st & 2nd visits were short but good.
Swedish Patient

Other than my initial appointment in which surgery was recommended, I NEVER saw Dr. Delashaw again, not even on the day of the surgery. I have to assume he completed the surgery, but I really don't know for sure. While I am very pleased with my surgery and the results of the surgery (thus far), it was disconcerting to only see the doctor one time (prior to surgery). I believe last week was my last follow-up appointment, and I still didn't see the doctor. The PA seemed knowledgeable, but I didn't realize she would be my main service provider. This doesn't seem right.
Swedish Patient

My only complaint about the PA I saw is that he was new. That's not his fault. He was very helpful.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Delashaw and his team are very good at providing care. They take any questions or problems seriously and make sure the problems are addressed in a timely manner. this is especially the case after a serious surgery. [...]
