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.

The care I've received from Dr. Esmail over the years has been excellent. My only suggestion would be that he give the patient more of an opportunity to ask questions and have a dialog. There have been some (admittedly rare) occasions in the past where he seemed too quick to dismiss or discount concerns I had about my health and/or meds.

Doctor was great, really got the impression that he cared about me and was very easy to talk with and understand when it came to what he explained to me.

Dr. Esmail was very thorough in getting to know my medical history and the issues I am experiencing after prostrate cancer surgery. I appreciated his concern.

I believe the Doc is capable of excellent communication. My concern is a gap between us in 'zeroing in' on exactly what I need to do to achieve better results. Specifics. With a definitive plan, I believe things would be more clear to me. I don't know if this is beyond the purview of the visit or is limited by time constraints. I'm sure it's more clear to the Doc than it is to me, so I need a bit more 'tutoring' as to the specifics of achieving the goal. Just a bit. I think he's doing the best he can, so it may require a different approach to get it to sink into my mind and get my motivation up.

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.
