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.

My biggest issue with this visit came afterwards, when the results of an office ECG were posted to mychart without explanation or interpretation. Normally, that wouldn't be an issue, but this ECG was described in the report as "Abnormal." With no knowledge of how to interpret the report, I was left to fret over a weekend, plus a Monday, before I could talk with my provider and learn what the report meant. My doctor was surprised to learn that this kind of test result would show up on mychart, so perhaps the situation was out of her control. I did call the after-hours number and did receive a call from a physician other than my usual doctor, who did tell me that I didn't need to panic. However, I didn't get all the information I needed until the following Tuesday.

Dr Walker is the best PCP I've ever had. She is so very caring, talks so easily, listens amazingly. I'm always amazed at how comfortable I am with her and how much I trust and respect the care she provides to me. I feel VERY fortunate that she is my PCP!

I was very appreciative of the time she took. Did not feel rushed and felt like I was beginning to build a relationship and rapport with my doctor. I appreciated this as I recently moved to the area and had established great relationships with my doctors in my previous state. It was nice to feel like I was able to begin establishing a relationship with a new provider (both my doctor and Swedish as a whole).
