[ABC Newspapers, August 7, 2019] Allina Health now provides star ratings for its primary care physicians, nurse practitioners and physician’s assistants. The ratings are compiled by an independent organization from surveys sent to patients who receive care from an Allina Health provider. The star ratings, one to five, show on each provider’s web page at AllinaHealth.org along with any written comments survey respondents make. Allina Health is the first health system in the Twin Cities to publish these kind of ratings.

“We think that transparency is a key to building trust and partnership between you and your doctor. That’s why we’re making these unbiased ratings of our providers available to you,” said Dr. Timothy Sielaff, Allina Health Chief Medical Officer. “Finding the doctor best fit for you and your family is an important choice. Now you have access to a providers’ experience ratings and comments from patients’ right on our website to help you make that choice.”
