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. Summerfield is a great listener. I never feel rushed when I visit. I always have lots of questions because I read a great deal about health. She patiently answers all my concerns.

Dr. Summerfield is very professional but also warm and friendly with a nice sense of humor, which I find very important.

This is less about the care provider than about the nature of an annual physical -- it seems so cursory, I don't see how it could detect more than basic problems. Maybe that's all it's supposed to do (basic blood test, blood pressure, Pap smear), but it seems to me that some potentially serious issues don't have a chance of being detected, [...]

On this visit, provider seemed somewhat distracted and not as attentive as she usually has been. I felt like the visit was just another thing to be taken care of. Note this was my annual physical and with no lab work to refer to, perhaps she didn't have much to comment on. I normally do lab work prior to exam.

Results of tests taken are very clinical on "My Chart" and that is usually the extent of which I am informed. I haven't a clue what is going on. Then I am described as stubborn when I am not as compliant as doctor believes I should be, or allergies to medication force me to discontinue.

I see other care providers in the Swedish system, but none can compare to Dr. Jill Summerfield. I recently moved to West Seatle so I could be closer to her office. I'm 85 years old and thanks to Dr. Summerfield I'm pretty darn healthy... what more can I say.

[...] (concern the care provider showed....). The nurses assistant said I could not ask my questions but must schedule a separate appointment so I did not have all my questions answered but that was NOT the fault of Dr Summerfield.
