    8 Facts About Patient Satisfaction Surveys

    Patient satisfaction surveys provide a standardized way of reporting about healthcare experiences. But there can be more than meets the eye when reviewing scores. Here's what you should know

    Patient Satisfaction

    Patients' feedback on their experience with Dr. Bray

    Dr. Shelly C. Bray, MD
    DR. BRAY RESPONDS - (Dr. Bray, edit your response)

    I appreciate your time in filling out this patient satisfaction survey.  I am committed to providing truly great care, and I want you to know that your opinion is heard and appreciated. 

    Please understand that sometimes patient satisfaction and great medical care do not entirely overlap.  Recent research has shown that some of the most "satisfied" patients are actually not receiving the best care.  For example, some doctors overprescribe antibiotics (for viral illnesses) or pain medications (for drug-seekers) because they are afraid of getting bad scores on surveys.  "Satisfied" patients tend to receive more expensive, unnecessary and sometimes risky tests and are unnecessarily hospitalized (which can be a dangerous place).  Also, those who take the time to fill out the forms online or when sent a lengthy form in the mail, tend to be the extremely satisfied or the most dissatisfied.  Therefore it tends to be a very small sampling of those patients on opposite ends of the spectrum and not a randomized distribution of all patients that a doctor cares for.  For these reasons, I caution you to be very leery of using online reviews to choose your physician.  A better method would be to ask several people in your community for their recommendation. 

    As for patients of mine who were greatly dissatisfied, I am always regretful when I cannot meet a patient's expectations for the treatment they wish to receive. I am committed to providing the safest care possible and sometimes the provider and patient just don't agree on what the next step or treatment should be. I strive to thoroughly explain my position and offer alternatives, but sometimes no common ground can be established despite my best efforts. 

    I encourage anyone who is dissatisfied with my care to please give me a chance to rectify the situation before posting something online.  You may call my office and speak to my office manager/husband Jarrod Bray at 870-464-1515 or email him at jarrodbray@brayfamilymed.com.  He loves to hear that I am not perfect!!  Your health is so very important and we sincerely want you to feel good about your healthcare provider.  If there are issues, we want to know about them.
