    ex:
    efficiency of reception? O fair O Good O Verry good O Excellent
    efficiency of nurses? O fair O Good O Verry good O Excellent
    efficiency of doctors? O fair O Good O Verry good O Excellent
    efficiency of assistant? O fair O Good O Verry good O Excellent

    Do not start with javascript validation, because many times javascript is not available to the visitor. Also, relying on javascript validation means naughty people can, and will, try to get bad information through.

    Instead, first work on validating by php. Once you have done that you will have a better idea of the tasks involved in the process, and can easily translate those across to javascript, for the purpose of making the visitors experience easier.

    Don't take just my word on this. Head along to the php forum and get their input on this as well.

    Javascript is not secure. PHP is the first line of defence, work on that first. All else after that is icing on the cake.

    Do not try for the icing first, because you first need the cake. Get the validation in php done first, then build on top of that.
