Reviews

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.

She was almost dismissive of my problem, even insinuating that I was making it up. Then treatment moving forward was more of a placating nature than an actual treatment plan.

I would like to have heard from her other options for treatment and more specifics about my treatment plan.

I have two problems with this care provider: 1. She is insisting that I have an ear test. I am not going to have it because I do not want another tube in my ear when this one falls out. and 2. When I see her there is a Scribe present. I feel like she does not trust me. I will not be seeing her in the future.

Dr. Peterson knows her stuff and treats patients with empathy and care. Yet, she is very professional, as well. She has a great staff.

My second visit was felt to be more personable and not as rushed as the first visit. I had been prescribed medication but only spoke to a nurse about them after they were ordered. The second visit felt much better than the first one.
