About Our Survey

Patient Experience Surveys

UT Physicians is focused on providing an exceptional experience in every care interaction. All ratings are submitted by actual patients and verified by NRC Health, a leading and independent survey company in the patient experience industry. As part of that commitment, we share our providers’ patient experience feedback online. NRC Health provides the technology to display ratings and comments on our provider profile pages.

Who receives our survey?

All eligible UTHealth Houston patients receive a survey via text, email, or an IVR (Interactive Voice Response) phone call soon after their appointments. Patients are asked to complete the survey and provide comments regarding specific aspects of care. We use this feedback to improve and enhance the care we offer.

What questions are on our Medical Practice survey?

  • Did we communicate with you about your anticipated wait time?
  • Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
  • Did this provider listen carefully to you?
  • Did you trust this provider with your care?
  • Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
  • Did you know what to do if you had more questions after your visit?
  • Did this provider talk about how to prevent illness or injury?
  • How likely would you be to recommend this provider to your family and friends?
  • What else would you like to say about your experience?

About our star ratings and comments

We calculate our star ratings based on responses to the survey question “How likely would you be to recommend this provider to your family and friends?”

UT Physicians is committed to transparency. That means posting all relevant feedback – whether it is positive or negative. However, we do not post comments that are libelous, profane, or those that risk the privacy of our patients. Every provider rating is published regardless of comment status.

Industry best practice is clear that more data provides an accurate picture. That is why we require a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys per provider before we post publicly.

No. Only patients completing a clinic visit with a UTHealth provider will receive a survey.

Patient names are not displayed through the online ratings and comment reviews. All personally identifiable patient information is removed before it is posted to UTPhysicians.com.
