About Ratings and Comments

Patient Ratings

The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to care provider-related questions on the nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.

Patient Comments

Patient Comments are gathered from the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey and displayed in full. Patients are not identified in order to respect patient privacy.

No Rating Available

It is possible some providers have not received the minimum of returned surveys we use to calculate the ratings and therefore have no ratings posted yet.
