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.

Dr Patterson is not only a extremely experienced compassionate GI Dr, but also a very kind and caring person. As a [...] patient it is always a challenge to find medical professionals that understand this rare incurable condition. Dr Patterson understands and provides such great support and help for so many of us. He is exceptional and so is his staff.
Swedish Patient

Felt like the doctor didn't listen carefully to me and didn't respect my own instincts about my body. He wanted me to rush to a major intervention (surgery) without further discussion or testing despite symptoms that point to needing more testing. I did not receive a phone call with my results, instead just an email through the system which I almost missed. A nurse or doctor should call with major test results.
Swedish Patient

We have never met any one like dr p..great man kind and understanding would recommend him for anyone with stomach challenges. He is an +A to us.
Swedish Patient

In the past he has appeared rushed or distracted which has frustrated me. Moving to this facility seems to agree with him. I feel more comfortable that he is concentrating on my particular issues.
