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.

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 really like to communicate through My Charts - I always quickly get a personal response back from Dr. Summerfield when I have a question.

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.

I was surprised that the Doctor had not seemed to review my records prior to seeing me for a physical. I have had some pretty serious health concerns in the past year and she had not read the records sent by the doctors, there were two from two disciplines, as I think it would have helped her more quickly answer some of the questions i had, and some she could not answer but would need to do research. Also, the physical was very short. She did very little in the office and most of the results seemed to be based on blood work. I have not had a physical so thought there would be more to it.

As I said, I need to know more about what this medication does. Recently I was admitted to E.R. at Swedish and two medications were prescribed without any knowledge of what they do or the importance of taking them. Upon reading the printouts that come with, I still did not know. I am just taking them "blindly." Not a good thing in my view.
