How are star ratings for providers determined?

Star ratings are based on responses to survey questions that focus on a patient's likelihood to recommend the provider's office to family and friends as well as the provider's care, including whether the provider listened carefully, spent enough time with you, explained things in an easy-to-understand way, and seemed to know important information about your medical history. Press Ganey averages and converts all survey responses into a single star rating, with five stars being the highest.

Infectious diseases have shaped the history of humanity; this is one of the many reasons why Dr. Zambrano chose Infectious Disease as her specialty. It is important to her that her patients feel respected, empowered, and heard when it comes to their health concerns. Dr. Zambrano strives to achieve this by providing evidence-based, personalized, compassionate care. She enjoys the management of infectious diseases that range from simple infections to more complex cases that require a multidisciplinary team, managed in collaboration with our local physicians and surgeons. Dr. Zambrano is an Infectious Disease specialist who was Chief Fellow at the University of Washington where she completed her Infectious Diseases training; prior to UW, she completed her residency at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital and attended medical school at Universidad Central de Venezuela in Caracas, where she was born.
