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.

I've recommended Dr. Jessica McHugh to several close friends who were pregnant with their first babies. She's been the delivery doctor for a couple, and will deliver my second child within the month. I have full confidence in her, and am always treated with respect and warmth during my visits with her. I cannot speak highly enough of her and her professional expertise and demeanor.

Dr. McHugh was very responsive to my concerns. She provided me with the information I needed.

All I could ask for is being listened to even if there is no possible solution at the moment.

Dr. McHugh is so great! I've already recommended her to a coworker of mine who is looking for a PCP
Swedish Patient

Condescending about my concerns, non-communicative about prescriptions, ordered a test (it showed up on my paper work) and sent me on my way before it could be performed. Overall, unprofessional. I've had good interactions with her in the past, which only made this visit that much more disappointing.
