PATIENT RATINGS AND COMMENTS

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.

Personally I think he should have requested a more current set of X-Ray, MRI or CAT-SCAN in order to allow for a more confident access of my condition. Most Neuro-surgeons require pictures that are no older than 30 days. My pictures were (at the VERY least) several months old.

Dr Holland was not familiar with either the radiation therapy i was interested in (there is a clinic in north seattle) nor the surgery technique that is very successful for this type of brain cancer. [...] and [...] and other institutions have been doing both for nearly ten years.

I had just had an MRI and was still quite nauseous from the contrast and really couldn't communicate concerns or ask questions.

[...] This was my first visit with this doctor, and I felt very comfortable and confident in his knowledge and concern...out of 1 through 10, 10 being the highest, I'd give him a 12, for sure!

[...] I found him, throrough, like able, professional, caring and informative. But, there are alternative, less invasive surgeries (endoscopic versus crainitomy) and I was unable to get information on those options. Therefore, I will wait until surgery is imminent and then I will get a second opinion.
