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.

This nurse needs training in listening to patients - she did not listen when I said I was done for the day after 3 sticks, and attempted another stick above the 3rd attempt, very painful & still they didn't get any blood for the test!

These ratings are for Dr. Shuhart, not the nurse that performed the bone density test. I was not particularly happy with the nurse doing that test. He wasn't rude, but he wasn't friendly either.

Doctor is very personable & encouraged questions. He recommended drug therapy for osteoporosis but no other alternatives. He did talk about diet & exercise, thought, but I want long term non-drug therapies. Will discuss w/my care provider.
