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.

I usually see Dr [...]. Dr Graber was recommending things that she's never discussed with me.

We would refer Dr. Graber in a heartbeat. He has been very patient and professional during this entire experience.

Dr. Graber is wonderful.

[...] Dr. Graber spends a lot of time with me and my family. He is a wonderful human being and we all love the person he is. However, as a doctor overseeing my supposedly "incurable disease,"according to him, getting him to hear what I am saying and to get answers to questions, referrals, my medical records, scans, tissue samples, etc., feels more impossible than beating brain cancer! I have wasted countless hours calling and emailing; mostly hearing from his wonderful staff who are as helpful as they can be with no license to write prescriptions, sign off on referrals, clinical trials, I am so disappointed and frustrated that I am trying to find a different doctor while I am still alive and able to do so. All the delays, foot dragging and my almost daily follow up work have left me feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. I am mostly advocating for myself because I am capable of doing so, but I am not getting the cooperation I need out of the Swedish medical group so I am choosing to move on to get all of this frustration and negativity out of my life! [...] I feel like I have already lost a lot of time, but I am trusting God's perfect timing in all of this, because ultimately I am trusting Him to lead me to the people who can help my body heal so I can be done with all this. I have too much living left to do to spend time being bogged down like this.

Dr. Graber & staff are excellent.

Dr. Graber is extremely kind, informative and generous with his time.

Dr. Graber is top notch.

Thank you

Dr. Graber was very direct in explaining the illness and spent a considerable amount of time helping us understand everything about it.

Dr. Graber seems like an excellent physician. My only concerns about recommending him to others are based on my experiences with the way the office functions. In addition to the delays I experienced on my most recent visit [...], following my initial visits the communications by e-mail were not robust. Admittedly, I had not yet signed up for MyChart, but the Patient Care Coordinator ([...]) with whom I was communicating did not guide me to do that until after a week went by while she was out of the office and no one was monitoring her individual Swedish e-mail inbox. During that week I was trying to sort out some issues with standing lab tests that needed to be ordered, and ultimately had to have another physician's office do that for me.
