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.

he did not seem sure why I had . maybe it was an ear infection maybe not. but he prescribed ear drops anyways and they were brand only and $300. I did not purchase them , way too expensive. so I paid for a doctor visit and got nothing solved.

I have always appreciated Dr. Smith, and feel confident in his abilities, or his referral of my treatment and care. He has always shown compassion and understanding in all my needs, and a great willingness to listen and accept my input!

Dr. Smith always takes time to listen to me and makes sure my needs are met, no matter the amount of questions or concerns.

He seems uncomfortable with diagnosing or treating many conditions himself, which is understandable for a primary care provider. However, I am very confident that he will refer me to a specialist, physical therapist, etc who he thinks can best help me. He has picked out some really great care providers to refer me to (including surgeons that I later learned are regionally or even internationally famous for things like their skill, depth of knowledge, and innovation/refinement of techniques) and made sure I was seen promptly when my problems were on the urgent side and the specialists sometimes had long wait times. Also, considering how many of my questions and complaints came up during this visit, which was supposed to be a simple recheck for one condition, I was surprised at how willing he was to spend time on each of them instead of discouraging me from telling him more about my problems. This time, he referred me to a hand specialist who I saw a couple days ago. Along with providing treatment, she provided more explanations about what causes this problem, how this treatment works, this treatment's success rate, possible options if this treatment doesn't solve the problem, etc. I am happy (so far!) about my [...] progress :)
