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.

Dr McLennan was clearly very busy and gave only short responses to my concerns. In a follow up call was almost dismissive and clearly irritated with my questions.
Swedish Patient

Not my regular doctor, but very lovely woman.
Swedish Patient

This is my first pregnancy and the doctor laughed at my questions and told me to relax! I had a list of questions I was waiting to ask a medical professional and was so disappointed to have to go back to pregnancy books for answers instead of the provider.
Swedish Patient

Dr. McClennan is super smart and she does a good job of making things easy for my husband and I to understand. We are college graduates, but not doctors, and we appreciate her explanations.
Swedish Patient

I made another appointment with her.
Swedish Patient

Dr. McLennan is the best doctor I've ever had. She took me through two pregnancies, one C-section delivery, and is now my routine gynecologist. I can't imagine a more capable, knowledgeable, caring, and considerate physician.
Swedish Patient

Did not introduce self.
Swedish Patient

Dr. McLennan is an excellent doctor. She is caring, professional, and thorough. I feel at ease asking her questions and discussing OB care with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an OB.
Swedish Patient

The Dr kind of barged in and started asking me questions in a very unpolluted way. [...] It was very unprofessional
Swedish Patient

Dr. McClennan and her team are always outstanding
Swedish Patient

Dr. McLennan has always been wonderful with me.
Swedish Patient

Really appreciated not feeling rushed.
Swedish Patient

I came to Dr. McLennan to talk about issues of infertility. She was dismissive at first, and told me that I just needed to "relax and stop stressing" (the same (kind of bad) advice she gave me 6 months ago). But, once I made it clear that I needed and wanted to take more concrete steps, she was accommodating.
Swedish Patient

Provider did not recall past visits. This was disappointing since I have been her patient for the past few years.
Swedish Patient

Dr. McLennan was very thorough and attentive, excellent bedside manner.
Swedish Patient

Very judgmental. Didn't seem concerned w/my situation and made me feel uncomfortable. I felt bad after leaving and did not receive adequate information from the provider.
Swedish Patient

Dr. McLennan is the best, most caring gynecologist I have ever had. She has never rushed through my visits and always answers any questions very thoroughly. She is so knowlegeable but personable.
