At NHC we are constantly striving to optimize your experience and patient feedback is critical in this process of continual improvement. Patient surveys are randomly conducted by a third-party vendor to provide us feedback, which is the source of our provider ratings and patient comments.

"They give excellent service and the providers are there if we need anything to attend to us."
"Listened to me very attentively and helped me with what I need."
"She is my favorite provider since I started with her."
"I have had many providers before, and I have had many who either brushed off my problems, are too far away to actually see me, or did not really mesh well with me if that makes any sense. Abbie has been extremely kind, has looked into my worries, my problems, she has tried to find solutions, and makes sure that what I need to get done gets done. All in all, I have only had good experiences with her as my family health care provider. I feel like I can finally get the things that I need to see the doctor for actually taken care of, especially someone who did not have access to a doctor in any way shape or form for the last twenty years."
"She is always really good with me, tells what the medications are about, and seems really interested in my health."
"She was really nice."
"It didn't last long to wait and when I explained to her, she paid attention, but she didn't know much about my file."
"I have been there for the same situation. I feel I'm not getting better. I have another appointment today because I still not feeling well."
"For some years now they have worsened the attention. I didn't like this time at all."
"The provider couldn't explain why I was feeling bad. She only told me to return to the clinic if I feel bad again."
"I don't understand English, and I felt that I talked to the interpreter, and he didn't put attention. The provider talked to the interpreter and the interpreter didn't hear her well and the provider spoke very fast. I didn't get what I wanted to understand."
"I always see this provider."
