The Patient Satisfaction Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown below from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
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.
A recipient of a Masters degree in Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Dr. Kreider studies risk factors for both the development of Interstitial Lung Diseases and for poor outcome. She is an active participant in several drug trials for patients both with pulmonary fibrosis and sarcoidosis. In addition she participates in studies of patients with Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM).
