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.

Overall, good but there seemed to be more concern to take care of the symptom rather than the cause of my health condition.

Dr. Hyde is a very caring physician. She listens well to me and answers questions promptly through MyChart. I have been seeing Dr. Hyde as my primary care physician since 2002, and she is very aware of my health history.

Martha is excellent in every way.

A very caring, responsive, meticulous provider.

I had hoped for more answers to my questions.


Dr. Hyde is extremely thorough and caring. it's really quite surprising how attentive she is. refreshing.

One of the most recent things I had done was an x-ray of a problem shoulder, which showed arthritis. My doctor failed to even bring up the topic.

I really think my provider is a very good doctor but is more from the school of thought of prescribing medications instead of looking at alternative medicine. I have been making a shift away from the pill popping type of mentality in treating some ailments with exercise, nutrition, acupuncture, physical therapy and Chiropractor treatments. Of course there are times meds are totally called for, but prescribing an anti-depressant for helping one to sleep who is not getting a goods nights sleep due to night sweats is concerning. I have been wary since . Also, when I last came in for a annual exam I was asked to fill out pages of questions pretty much asking if I was depressed and so on. What a pain in the neck. I was there for a annual exam and found that time consuming and somewhat offensive as I was there for a female annual exam. [...] treat people for what they are coming in for initially and then dig deeper if there is a need.

V. good.

It would have been helpful to know that the quick test for Strep throat is prone to false negatives. I would have requested that they take 2 swabs - one for the quick test and one for the longer test. I think I could have avoided an extra week of significant discomfort if my strep throat had been identified sooner.

My husband and I both go to her and totally agree that we are so fortunate to have Martha Hyde as our primary physician.

I have full confidence in Dr. Hyde.

I love that I get a written account of my visit & what she expects from me in future -

On my recommendation, a friend and my partner see this provider.

My previous Dr - [...] retired. I had a very comfortable relationship with her. I felt I could be open and honest about anything. I am not as comfortable with Dr Hyde. For example as I was leaving I asked if they would be checking my blood sugar levels. She informed me "they" weren't checking anything - she was having it checked. I realize I may have phrased my question poorly but I didn't appreciate her response.

Provider showed no empathy. She didn't provide explanation for when or what to return to clinic for, just said to follow up with regular provider. Didn't explain rationale for not removing ingrown toenail right then, just said to come back. Missed huge opportunity for opportunistic care - this patient has significant vitamin D deficiency and asked for vit D level and she was rude and cold and refused without exploring why this patient was requesting this (muscle pain is slowly returning). Didn't even look in the chart. This patient has had several horrible experiences by providers in this clinic in the last couple of years and will not likely be returning for care.

I will be looking for a new provider. I am not the best patient, but I am tired of being told I could die. We are all going to die.
