4.8 out of 5 (70 Ratings, 12 Comments)4.870

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.

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.

The nurse practitioner that I saw was excellent and I will, next time when I come back in 6 months, I'm going to make sure I get the same nurse practitioner, because she explains things and it was one of the best office calls that I've had because sometimes you come out of the doctor's office, and you're not really sure what they said, but with the nurse practitioner she was very thorough. Thank you.

I was so impressed with how smart and compassionate that Lori Cross was. She is a very kind and caring care provider, one of the best I have ever experienced in my 30 plus years coming to Carle. Lori has a genuine calming manner, and is a great listener who makes it apparent she is very committed to her patients.

This is a complaint and it has to do with the parking in the Heart Center. It is extremely irritating. On my visit my wife was with me, who has Parkinson's and requires help in getting out of the car and into the building and when I punch the button for the gate there was one - only one disabled spot left and the gate did not move up. I punched it again, it rang twice as it previously had - finally it was raised up and I was lucky I was able to get the spot before somebody else could have taken it. So if something could be corrected about that, we would really appreciate that. Thank you.

The nurse practitioner and staff member who took me to the examining room were both very attentive and very informative.
