The Post-Appointment Feedback survey is a valuable tool for gathering information from your patients regarding their experience in your office. If you have a Healthgrades Enhanced Profile through Sesame, the results of these surveys are automatically published on your Healthgrades page.
The first nine questions of your survey cannot be edited, and are in a 5-star rating format. This means the results are standardized for compatibility with Healthgrades. You can, however, add up to five additional, custom questions to your survey, and give your patients the option to provide written responses.
Check out the Feedback section of the Editing Patient Pages page for more information about adding custom questions to your surveys.
Just below the Preview button is a field that allows you to enter up to three email addresses to which your survey results will be sent. When entering more than one email address into this field, be sure to separate each address with a semicolon (ex: email@example.com;firstname.lastname@example.org;email@example.com).
Note: You will be notified separately by Google about reviews patients submit on your business page as described here: https://support.google.com/business/answer/7198436
At the bottom of the page you will find the Delivery Schedule options for the Post-Appointment Feedback survey. Using the drop-down menus, you can choose how soon after an appointment your patients will be sent the survey, and the minimum amount of time that must pass before a patient will receive another survey.
Smart Feedback Autofill:
When you select the Smart Feedback Autofill, your post-appointment feedback email will include a dynamic element showing two buttons. These represent a Yes or a No question that you add before the Smart Feedback Element. A good question to use is: “Based on your experience with us during your visit, would you recommend us to a friend or a family member?” We found that this process increases the likelihood of the patient successfully leaving a review.
If the patient has a Gmail email address and you have the Office Review field populated, the patient will be taken to the Google review link there to leave a review. Otherwise, the patient will be able to submit an internal survey. If you have an Enhanced Healthgrades profile, this rating will populate into your Healthgrades rating.
Note that we do not filter out or redirect reviews based on the type of feedback the patient has for you. This ensures the authenticity of patient reviews and helps build a lasting reputation online that is truly reflective of your quality of service.

Healthgrades Enhanced Profile
If you have a Healthgrades Enhanced Profile, the results of your survey are automatically published in your profile for others to see. Once your profile is “live” with Healthgrades, new survey results typically appear within 48 hours after your patients submit them.
Please note that only the results from the first nine questions will appear in your Enhanced Profile with Healthgrades. Any custom questions you have included in your survey will be for your internal review only.
