The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related
questions from our nationally-recognized
Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive
different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our
Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients
and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and

are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as
comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely
Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our
ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from
the previous 12 months.
Provider Ratings and comments are gathered from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey
Patient Satisfaction Survey. If a provider does not have ratings or comments listed it
