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 Howard is beyond wonderful. She has been my OBGYN for both of my pregnancies. I looked forward to every appointment with her. She has great bedside manner. Talking with her is so easy. She is genuinely concerned about her patients and wants your pregnancy to be the best that it can be. She has great listening skills and wants you to leave feeling like all your questions were answered. I would recommend her in a heart beat! Thank You, Dr. Howard for all that you have done for my family and I!!

Dr. Kristy Howard is an excellent care provider. She provided me with information about my condition, answered my questions and walked me through the procedure with care and utmost concern. She kept asking me how I was doing during the procedure to see if she should continue. She explained what she was doing during the procedure and then explained in more detail afterwards to help me better understand. It provided me with a lot of comfort. I would highly recommend her to family and friends.
