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 impression of Dr. Wells after meeting and talking with him was EXCELLENT. He took his time and explained and answered all my questions. He showed me a model of a human heart and made sure I understood everything he was explaining. I was very impressed with his knowledge and his patience in taking his time and explanation of all my concerns.

Doctor is very busy and I always find myself needing to ask more questions as he is running out the door. This is cardio-vascular care so is a complex issue for me and I don't feel it is unusual that I do have at least a few questions. This doctor is very pleasant and courteous, however, I always feel a little rushed.
