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.
We cannot say enough good about Dr. Laxton. He demonstrated a level of compassion, empathy, and professionalism that made me feel so confident in submitting myself to his care.
This was the first time I felt like I had a say in treatment; doctor at OTHER facilities did not give me this opportunity!
Had heard excellent remarks about your hospital and found them to be very true.
*Dr. Laxton was wonderful.
