Patient Ratings and Comments
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 don't like having to schedule a follow-up appointment just to take 10 minutes to discuss my (hopefully) uninteresting results. If I may have a serious illness (knock on wood), then I understand having to meet personally with my practitioner. However, it's not convenient to schedule even one appointment, much less two.

I've received care from Dr Esmail for nearly 13 years. He listens carefully, provides good feedback, keeps me informed when I'm concerned about test results, suggests areas for improvement without being didactic or condescending. I believe his holistic approach to medical care is a critical factor in my ongoing good health.

Dismissive of symptoms. On two occasions has told me that I would have to make another appointment to discuss a medical issue, even though he had spent less than 15 minutes with me.

Overall I felt the doctor was not listening to me or taking my concerns seriously. He made a joke that I must be a really sick person based on all of the times I go into the doctor, I replied that I actually have gone in mostly because [...] and it had nothing to do with my health. I felt he talked down to me and didn't respect me. It was the worst experience I've ever had with a doctor. [...]

Dr Esmail always listens attentively and empathetically. He asks questions to ensure he understands then follows up effectively. He has always provided excellent care.

Dr. Esmail is a rare find in that he is able to convey concern and actually listens to what I'm saying. I feel that he asks the right questions and makes accurate diagnoses.

Dr. Esmail is the best. I have never had a bad experience. He is careing, friendly, supportive, honest and has a huge heart. If it was not for him, 9I would probably not go regulary to a doctor. I live out by Black Diamond but drive to Factoria for all my visits. I go every three months and a physical every year.
