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. Smith is a wonderful, caring doctor. She has worked with me continually to improve my health, help me over the bad times, and still supporting me despite the odds. I feel she takes my health care issues seriously and follows up on them. I in turn feel more in charge of my health, and am never afraid to bring up concerns and or question her decisions, if I have any.

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.

08/04/2015
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.
