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.

Words aren't adequate to convey the appreciation and trust I feel for Dr. Kober. She is not only an outstanding physician in every aspect, she shows genuine caring and compassion for me as a patient. Whenever I see her, I never feel rushed and I know I have her full attention. She sets the bar and is an example for others to follow.

I'm sure you hear this a lot, but the computers seem impersonal. Dr. Kober does a good job while typing but they still seem a barrier to pt. care. I have recommended Dr. Kober to a lot of friends. She is a wonderful doctor.

Provider used to be more attentive and concerned & friendly - Last year or so seems too busy to spend time to explain & help work out reasonable plans. Is a smart, thinking out of box dr. but has lost the connection of caring, listening & discussing.

This was an initial visit to establish care with an internist. She was recommended by a close friend and i found the recommendation to be solid. I have an excellent Family Practitioner at another facility but felt I needed to establish care with an internist due to multiple concerns.

Dr. Kober provided my mother with excellent health care so when I moved here from Alaska eight years ago I started seeing Dr. Kober, too. [...] I still make the commute to see Dr. Kober - even for a 15 minute appointment. She is great.

I think sometimes it feels rushed and that seems like it's due to how many patients are scheduled, not that the Dr. is hurrying me.

I could write a book of my amazing interactions at the Minor & James Medical. I really can't believe how great it is myself. I waited 4 years for Dr. Kober to take new patients, [...] is also amazing. My colonoscopy was so different (in a good way) than my previous colonoscopy I was in shock. The provider came and spoke to me prior to the colonoscopy and then again after to explain his findings. It was so nice and I really appreciate it. [...] & [...] in Radiology are so awesome. They went out of their way to make my appointment time work for me. I really appreciate this excellent service. It is rare!!!

I was diagnosed with [...] this year and referred to a Specialist for care. Dr. Kober did not seem to want to know much about my progress with this but skipped right over my summation of where I was in treatment, how I was doing and went straight to the basic exam. I feel this is an important component of my health even is she is not directly treating it and I was very surprised at this.
