The Patient Rating score is derived from care-provider related questions on our patient experience survey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Comments also displayed in their entirety. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.
Why no ratings? In order to provide our patients and visitors with the most accurate information, we only post physician satisfaction data when a physician has received a minimum of 30 returned surveys.

  • Oct 15, 2020I have seen Dr Gaffney for many years. At this visit I was very stressed. and felt so needed some medications. she took more than usual time to explain what would help me and the effects of the meds. She made me feel like I was her only concern . The time she spent with me was more than adequate.
