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.

Again, I like the Dr. Yao very much and thinking she is the best doctor I can get. But her current staff are not good and clinic manager is not good at all.

[...] I don't think I could have picked a better PCP than Dr. Yao. I have been extremely impressed with the care, demeanor and advice that she has given me since I started going to Swedish!! She is very kind and listens attentively and then presents multiple avenues of care (if appropriate) so that her and I can take the best approach towards a healthcare solution that works best for me. I really appreciate that!!

I have had an ongoing problem with anxiety for quite awhile. Thanks to Dr. Yao, I'm feeling like a normal person again. Also had a problem with a rapid heartbeat. Dr. Yao was thorough in assuring I didn't have any underlying heart problems, and prescribed medication that has worked nicely.

Dr Yao seems very young and seems to have preconceived ideas of what I am saying and what the answer should be before I have finished telling her the problem.
