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.

I think Dr. Nelson did a good job assessing my condition, but there was no follow-up care and I am still struggling with the issue I came in for.

Both the primary doctor and physician assistant (PA) were excellent (very sympathetic, listens to what I had to say/never cut me off, friendly, their presence calms me down etc), but this was NOT the case with the Nurse Practitioner (opposite of what I had describe above about the doctor and physician assistant, was discouraged with that appointment. My husband and I went the same way when we met with her).

Dr. Nelson is worth the wait everytime. I feel very well taken care of as a whole person when I see her. She even sent me a mychart message at 11pm at night with more information she had researched about my condition.

Dr. Nelson is very thorough and caring. She has a nice sense of humor, which is important to me and does not seem to mind if I ask how her family is. I leave feeling that she was concerned and for me to check back with her if I need to.

My doctor is very thorough, good clinician, treats me with respect, I probably would not recommend her if the patient had a tight schedule. I don't work or have family to care for so her excellence is worth the wait.
