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.

My wife was with me. She was concerned about my condition and being near my step-son. He just had [...] surgery [...]. Doctor was both clear on what or what not to be concerned about. But also show his concern about our son's situation. Again, a good doctor.

Dr. David McFarland is my doctor and has my complete faith and respect. He has ultimately saved my life and my sons life over the years of seeing him. I highly recommend him and hold him in the highest regard. When I need help he is the one I ask for and want to see. When he leaves I will most likely find a new clinic as He is difficult for me to get their I travel close to 20 miles to see him passing by 2 major hospitals and clinics to see my doctor.

I have been going to Swedish Primary Care in Factoria for a number of years now and was seeing Dr. [...]. I was in a car accident and could not get an appt with Dr. [...] and was seen by Dr. MacFarland. I was so impressed with his bedside manner--very respectful, knowledgeable and not judgmental at all with the health care decisions I have made in the past. Instead of "lecturing" me, he educated me in a calm manner and was very encouraging about taking medications for [...]. He researched medications that won't interfere with breastfeeding which I was still doing at that time. I asked him right away if he could be my PCP. It's one of the best decisions I have made regarding my primary care. I am so happy he agreed to take me as a patient.
