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.

This provider is a wonderful, caring, patient doctor. She takes the time to make sure you are comfortable and that you understand exactly what is going on. I had a wonderful doctor for many years before her and was hesitant to start a new doctor. I am so happy I found her.

Like I said before, Dr. Kipa is my #1 choice for OBGYN needs. I've had to see a couple of other providers during my pregnancy because of Dr. Kipa's leave and because she is in such high demand, and the level of care I receive with her is light years better than my experience with the others.

Dr. Kipa explains everything in an "easy to understand" manner. She gives you treatment options and best recommendations. She displays so much kindness and compassion when she is with you. Dr. Kipa has the unique combination of being an incredibly talented Dr. but also a kind, thoughtful person. The hospital is not convenient for me but I will make the drive to keep her as my doctor.

The doctor provider being asked about in this survey is wonderful. However, the nurse [...] you get when you phone in with a question or concern is horrible. She issues medical advice without consulting your chart, refuses to consult the doctor and refuses to work the patient to resolve issue.

Felt a bit rushed, very matter of fact about the problem, less about the emotional aspect of it.
