Quality & Outcomes

Patient Satisfaction

Penn Medicine and its physicians, nurses, and health care specialists are committed to providing you with excellent clinical care and service. Patients who have any concerns regarding care have the right — without recrimination — to voice those concerns, have them reviewed, and, when possible, resolved.

Patients will also receive a Patient Satisfaction Survey in the mail after their visit. Penn Medicine wants to know how the patient experience can be improved.
