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. Gersappe is very knowledgeable about his area, sleep medicine, as well as internal medicine and is familiar with my conditions and the way they affect my sleep apnea. I feel very fortunate to have been assigned to him after my original doctor went to another location.
