Patient Ratings and Comments
 

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. Mendis is the only rheumatologist I trust to take the best care of me. She has helped immensely.

The best rheumatologist that I have ever had. I live in Bothell and when Dr Mendis went to Beacon Hill I decided to drive there for my appointments. No better Dr of Rheumotology that I have ever seen in 6 years.

Dr. Mendis diagnosed and treated a disease that had been missed & diagnosed as something else. Her experience would have prevented a lot of pain and possible surgery if it would have been accessible earlier.
