Austin Regional Clinic (ARC) doctors, staff, and leadership are committed to providing our community with high quality convenient care. One of the ways we demonstrate this priority is through our online transparency.
You can review our provider ratings and comments on our web site with the confidence that they are all based on verified visits. We post all patient feedback relevant to the entire visit and only refrain from posting comments that are libelous, profane, or those that risk the privacy of our patients.
The below guide provides details about how we collect and share our patient feedback.
ARC partnered with Press Ganey to collect patient feedback about their doctor’s visit. We gather feedback from text surveys that are sent after the visit. Press Ganey is an independent third party customer feedback company that provides the technology to collect the feedback and display ratings and comments on our web site. All ratings are submitted by actual patients and verified by ARC.
Patients for whom we have a mobile phone number receive a text survey within two hours of checking in for their visit. Patients are asked to complete the survey and provide ratings and comments regarding their experience at different touch points of their visit. We use this feedback to recognize doctors and staff, identify issues we can correct, and enhance our care.
ARC posts all positive and negative patient feedback that is relevant to the entire visit. We refrain from posting comments that are libelous, profane, or those that risk the privacy of our patients.
ARC asks questions that touch on the overall patient experience related to their visit. Anyone seeking detailed information about each question can view the ratings for each specific question on the Reviews tab on the provider bio page on the website. We calculate our provider star ratings based on the responses to question number six below. We calculate our location star ratings based on the responses to all the below questions.
Since more recent data provides a more accurate picture, we require a minimum of 30 patient surveys per doctor in the last 12 months before we post a physician’s rating.
ARC physicians and staff review all comments and act to rectify issues. Since the purpose of the feedback is to allow us to improve the overall patient experience, we display the last 90 days of comments which are the most relevant for the practice.
No. Only patients having an outpatient visit by an ARC physician receive a survey. The results are based entirely from patients who have actually been treated by the physician in our clinics.
Comments are reviewed and approved prior to being published to the website. If a comment contains any personally identifiable information, that information will be removed from the comment.

I wanted to be in the medical field since childhood. My grandmother was a nurse and I loved going to work with her and helping people. I chose a career as a PA because I like flexibility within medicine and both helping and teaching patients, while continuing to learn throughout my career. I believe in listening, being kind, and treating every patient with dignity and respect. I want every patient to leave the clinic with a clear understanding of what they are experiencing and satisfaction that we have helped them with everything we can.

Rating based on "Did the healthcare provider or doctor provide the care you expected?"
The kindness and compassion of the PA and her assistant. How clearly the PA explained everything and how the assistant wrote the directions of how to continue my medical care after I'm home. I'm so forgetful, so I really appreciate that.
Liked the efficiency of the whole team there and the doctors kind and knowledgeable exam.
Everyone is so nice
I come to ARC for all of my medical care and have been a loyal patient for over 15 years. The ARC team has always made me feel like my healthcare is as important to them as it is to me. Today, I met with Cody Seel, PA and she was fantastic. She was personable, and caring, and answered my questions - which is a big deal. I very much appreciate the willingness of someone to take the time to listen and educate.
Great office and staff!
My doctor made me feel very comfortable and she was super friendly. I really like this doctor.
