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.

Like I said she has been my Physician for about 6 or so years, and was my mothers Dr., for a few years as well. I have every confidence in her.

I hardly know Dr. Urriola but like her more and more. She listens and seems "savvy." I think I trust her. It is, after all, my life.

She couldn't give me the time I required for all my concerns because of time limitations. [...] Otherwise; good visit.

The doctor had a clear agenda on her mind and wasn't interested in talking with me about the issue and possible solutions. She told me what she was going to do and I didn't have a day and wasn't heard about my concerns and questions. She talked over me and was out of the office without any concern for my confidence and agreement with her directives.

Dr. Urriola has cared for me personally from our first visit ~10 years ago through today, and has seen me through back surgeries, referrals for various specialties, life changing events, and so on. Basically she has taken me from my prime to my present post-prime, and has kept me healthy, repaired, maintained, and prepared for the future. I think it's been a terrific relationship.

Doctor Urriola is the best. I drive far way just to have my appointment with her. I prefer to wait and be seen by her than any other doctor.

don't call the drugs by their prescription or medical names...use the name I'm used to so I know what you're talking about...or just easy classify -- muscle relaxer, tylenol with codeine..otherwise I'm lost.

I did mention to Alina that I had trouble sleeping and there was no comment or suggestions for sleeping aids. I have used Ambien a couple years ago - only once a month after several nights of not being able to sleep so I don't abuse it but there was no comment from her when I told her about my non-sleeping.

I had a series of tests done: blood, urine, ultra-sound on Friday and Saturday. I didn't get results till Sunday evening on MyChart. I called the office Monday and asked if the doctor would review my results. I was asked...didn't you get your results on MyChart. I answered yes but that I wanted to review them with my doctor since the numbers don't mean a lot. The doctors assistant called me back in a timely manner, but with the same attitude that MyChart should be sufficient. I disagree and am not happy that the doctor herself did not review the results with me. I don't feel MyChart should be a replacement for the doctors final review of my test results.
 

06/06/2015
Dr. Urriola was great. Very friendly, efficient, didn't seem hurried. I liked that! She took time to listen and hear my issues and gave me confident replies. [...] Overall, I really like Dr. Urriola.

when i expressed my concern about certain symptoms i have been having along with my family medical history, she reacted with sarcasm and did not take me serious. also i had a lot of bleeding and discomfort after my papsmear which I have never experienced before. Her response was that she likes to scrape hard to get a better sample. I have never had this problem and this response is ridiculous. She did not show any care or concern when I expressed my health concerns. She just blamed it on me having anxiety and she told me she would see me next year. Not sure how that would work since she is my primary care doctor. I am changing my doctor and will not recommend her.
