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.

4.7 out of 5 (106 Ratings, 8 Comments)


He comes in and looks at the computer, does not really say but a couple of words. Walks out and give me a print out of his plan of care... answers no questions I might have about this plan or the disease itself.
Swedish Patient

This dr. is an excellent doctor but could use a little more tact, or choose his words a little better, so as not to offend or embarrass patient....needs a little more "bedside manner." Also, there was another young fellow in the room during my visit. I was never introduced to him or told why he was present...I assume he was an intern?

Dr Sieke saved my lief when I was in the hospital. Can't get any better than that.
Swedish Patient

Left in the middle of our appointment to take a call from another doctor. had an ekg run on me first thing but never looked at it or mentioned it until I asked him on the way out of the office, in the hall. [...] Distracted, rude at times [...]. So not that impressive. [...]
Swedish Patient

Have a great deal of confidence in Dr. Siecke and have recommended him several times to others.
