The Patient Satisfaction Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related question shown above from our internal platform, PMX Feedback. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score. Scores reflect either the most recent 12 months of surveys or the most recent 30 surveys overall. Data is updated monthly and comments remain on the profile for 12 months.
Comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not necessarily reflect the views of Penn Medicine.
Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys.
Current research involves studying 1) blood biomarkers in patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA), stroke, and other types of cerebrovascular disease, 2) alterations in vascular structure and function in patients with migraine, and 3) use of transcranial Doppler emboli detection for assessment of patients with cerebrovascular disease.
