The overall Patient Rating score is the average of responses to the nine questions listed below. The questions are from the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Responses are measured on a 1 to 5 scale, where 1 represents "very poor" and 5 represents "very good."
Comments are taken from the Care Provider section of the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Comments are posted exactly as they are written. Comments are added weekly. To protect patient privacy and confidentiality, patient names are not included.
Though the care provider was good and listened she did sometimes speak too quickly. I had someone to take notes for me however, had I been alone I think it would have been too much information to absorb
I was very anxious and worried about the procedure I was recommended. My doctor (and everyone at WF) walked me through everything. I left feeling relieved and ready for the surgery. I felt, at all times, in good hands.
Feel she is an outstanding physician but deals with cancer routinely so is more complacent in discussions whereas I was still in shock. Rapid fire info but I wanted more details of my cancer. Maybe she didn't have the full pathology report back to answer at the time. Was given an overview of what to expect.
I was told that this doctor was the best for breast cancer surgery - and that is true! She is friendly, efficient, caring and takes time to listen!
Provider is a great physitian.
When any additional appointments have been necessary the doctor and the assistant have been so accommodating to arrange the times when I will not have to make additional trips (2 hours away).
you should have an "n/a" option but I would give Dr. Howard-McNatt a very good in gen'l
Professional and caring. Excellent surgery team. Excellent results. No after surgery problems.
Dr. Howard-McNatt was very thorough, caring and compassionate.
she was very good but seemed to be in a hurry to move on, left a lot of the work to the intern
In my case, my ratings are based on the fact that I did not ask the right questions to satisfy my questions re my condition. On the other hand, the surgeon could have taken the time to explain how my condition had "resolved itself" into a different condition. At the time I was delighted that my condition was resolved and that I was dealing with something non-threatening. Later I realized I should have asked more questions. I understand the concept of not telling the patient more than they need to know, but I'm still somewhat confused as to why it is up to the patient to ask the "right" questions.
