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 just felt my overall experience was a rushed doctor that spent more time looking at the screen of the computer and seeing the patient as a data set. She may very well be a wonderful doctor, but I don't feel I have a good rapport with her. I stuck with Swedish for my primary care because I had had such good experiences since moving here 2.5 years ago. I debated whether to follow Dr. [...] after she left the system, but think now I will likely be following her to her new location.

Just went in because my gyno closed her practice and I needed my perception refilled. I wanted to continue the medication I was in but she insisted on changing it

I've been going to this clinic for 4 years. Due to family history and obvious menopausal symptoms I'm sure it's right around the corner for me but those questions have been dismissed by both this provider and my previous provider and this clinic. If I'm not starting menopause then fine, answer my questions of why my period is gone, why did I gain/lose weight erratically with no change in lifestyle and whats up with the waking up in the middle of the night feeling like i'm burning from the inside out? Because I'm in good health I should ignore all those symptoms?

Dr. Deshpande ordered me to be retested for my existing conditions with specialists, and intends to stop my prescriptions without these re-tests. This is a significant unplanned financial burden on me, and isn't possible at this time, meaning she will remove me from treatments I have been on for a long time. She also contradicted the need for a test my previous doctors had requested, based on no information, she had never seen my test results from before. She did write Rx for my current meds for 1 month but not beyond that. I found that arbitrary and arrogant. She was pleasant enough interpersonally but assumed my previous treatment was in error with no reason. I have a follow up appointment with her and will learn then what meds she intends to continue without my needing to re-validate. I am hopeful she will continue my current protocols after reviewing my medical records which have been transferred to her location.

Visit was very courteous and was intended for me to establish a new primary care provider. The doctor absolutely meets my requirements and expectations and I will be coming to her for future checkups and health concerns.

Did not like that appt for a routine yearly physical & you could not talk about any other medical issues - I was informed I had to make another appt about swollen lymph nodes. Basically, a physical is just a physical - nothing else. Then another appt has to be made for a health concern.
