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 have a disorder that isn't life threatening but has many unpleasant side effects as well as the potential to develop into serious health condition(s). I don't feel like she takes this condition serious enough nor is she thoughtful about how she treats the side effects & my potential for developing worse conditions.

I have always loved Dr. Smith, but this particular visit, and her degree of compassionate, insightful, personalized care has prompted me to freshly evangelize to friends and family about her. It makes such a difference to have a doctor that really listens, who offers thoughtful solutions and empowers me to engage in my own well-being (rather than just offering me a pill), and who draws upon her knowledge of me and my family history, even though I hadn't seen her in years. I feel so cared for by Dr. Smith, and leave every visit hoping everyone is so lucky to have a PCP like her.

Dr. Smith is great in several ways: She is knowledgeable, she listens, speaks in easy to understand terms, realistic in her answers and doesn't always suggest a medicine, but different ways to address concerns-this is what I like best about her. I also like that she has been with the clinic for years-before her, I had several different doctors that did not stick with Swedish Greenlake.
