4.8 out of 5 (68 Ratings, 12 Comments)4.868

Why do some of our providers not have a star rating? This can be for several reasons, including:

  1. The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys to be eligible for display.
  2. The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified surveys currently used for these ratings.

I doubt that you can change any of this, but the building that you're in is a brand new building. The staff is great. Once you get past where the waiting room is for patients it's very nice. But the waiting hallway that you have for patients is horrible, it's cold and it feels uncaring. Think you should have had some community input about the waiting area, but that's it. Thank you.

I got my appointment very quickly. She explained the procedure so there were no surprises. Volunteered her services should I need her again and also discussed speech therapy. Great Dr! !


While Carle measures many aspects of our patients’ experience, only the survey questions specific to each provider are used to calculate their star rating. The surveys asks patients to evaluate their physicians in areas like communication, listening skills and respect. Results are used to evaluate patients’ overall perception of care and to identify areas for improvement. For each provider, ratings from their patients are averaged together to form a single star rating.

Kelly Cunningham's supervision, she got me ready and she was very, very, very nice, and I extremely like Dr. Kelly Cunningham as a doctor, she did a wonderful job, and if I have any other for that situation, I will definitely be back up there because I was very, very impressed with how everything went.
