“To set the standard for patient service and responsiveness”
Patient surveys demonstrate high levels of satisfaction related to the standard of care provided. Patients are cordially greeted, examinations are started on time, the nature of the exam is clearly explained, and patients are treated with the utmost care, respect and professionalism.
Physician surveys also demonstrate high levels of satisfaction, most notably with regards to over all clinical quality, accuracy, thoroughness and ease of scheduling. Preliminary reports are telephoned or faxed directly to the referring physician’s office immediately following completion of the patient’s examination. A formal report is mailed to the referring physician’s office within 48 hours. To ensure unbiased interpretation, Pacific Vascular maintains an association with 25 Interpreting Physicians.
