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 am very grateful and very thankful to be a long-term patient of Dr. Michael Hayden. I know he has a busy schedule, but he is always so kind and very thoughtful to take time to listen and talk through my chart. As a healthcare professional myself, I have a great deal of respect not just for his experience and knowledge, but for his ability to connect with his patients. Every time I come in for an appointment, I feel like I'm the most important person in the world to him! I've seen other physicians over the years and can personally state that Dr. Hayden sets the gold standard for how physicians should care and communicate with their patients. Dr. Hayden has always been available when I need him and he is always quick to get back to me if needed. He is an outstanding physician and I couldn't imagine anyone else being my primary care provider!

Over the past few months, we have tried to use other Doctors [...]. We were trying to reduce the time and cost (mileage, parking, etc.) to come from Snoqualmie to Seattle. To put in simple terms, those [...] doctors are probably good, but they are no Mike Hayden. We are back for good.
