Patient Comments

Patient Comments are gathered from the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey and displayed in full. Patients are not identified in order to respect patient privacy.
Patient had 10+ year history with TMJ, brought films and operating report history, experiencing regression. Provider only fluent in one procedure, the procedure not relevant to the care of the patient. Provider told patient that not likely surgery would be approved for a covered condition because patient previously had surgery >10 yrs ago. No validation took place, just opinion.

I needed more explanation of what the procedure was going to entail. I also didn't receive any information about follow up care. I could have really used a packet of information for things to expect after the procedure. Dr. Lin anded me to her surgery schedule on the fly, and I think the abruptness of the procedure might have interfered with the preparation of patient instruction materials. Despite these concerns, I'm very satisfied with the care I received. I really appreciate that the team made time for me because waiting two months for the biopsy would have been hard for me. I also appreciated the banter of the residents.
