Patient Ratings and Comments
 

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.

The doctor seemed preoccupied and rushed but had left for lunch and was called back to see me.

I like him very much, but at this visit felt he might have been distracted. [...] I left feeling somewhat confused and as if the appointment was pretty much a waste of my time. I've lost a bit of confidence that we're doing everything that we can do to control my a-fib.

The only problem that I encountered was with the assistant that came to prepare me for the ZIO heart monitor. That person needs retraining.
