We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

There seems to be a lack of real compassion and empathy from the providers I have met recently. I am dealing with constant pain and the feedback I am getting from the medical community is limited to a very narrow set of recommendations for dealing with it. After that, the advice is that this is just what life is about and I get the feeling that my pain is just an academic exercise for the doctor. I have not been able to find a provider that will offer an approach that is successful in changing the trend of my pain issues. It makes me think that an AI (Artificial Intelligence) doctor will be at least as helpful to me as the human version I find in the current system. Too much of the medical profession these days seems to be more of a business than a caring service. Very sad.

This was my first time seeing Dr. Borden since I had been a patient of Dr. Hull for the past [removed to protect privacy] years. As much as I liked Dr. Hull I really feel great about being under the care of Dr. Borden. He is excellent.

I am a transfer to Dr Borden. We going to Dr K Zeller until she retired then went to Natalia Van Havre who had to leave the country unable to renew her work visa very sad as she was excellent.My husband has been going to Dr Borden for many years, and thinks highly of him and I watched Dr Borden handle a medical emergency my husband had in May/June so decided to make the switch. He is very calming and listens.

Good experience with Dr. Borden. He addressed my concerns. If I didn't completely understand (e.g., my back & sciatica URGENT issues), it is because my brain is nearly [age deleted] years old now... it doesn't work as well as in my younger days

I feel fortunate to live in a community where my medical GP office is always able to get me in for a unscheduled doctors appointment. You have no idea how this gives me a sense of security, I am a terminal cancer patient and I use OHSU for my oncologist needs. I still love Good Sam!
