4.5 out of 5 (90 Ratings, 8 Comments)4.590

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.

Doctor Elder does a great job.


Very quick service for walk in care


Everyone I encountered had excellent bed-side manner.

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.

I had a very good experience, they were very helpful, and they need to have more staff like the staff they have. And I greatly appreciate it. Thank you. God bless.


I am a nurse myself and received an IM injection from the RN on my visit. She did not put gloves on when giving the injection.


It was a good experience and I thought everything went fine. I was satisfied. That's all.


Dr. Elder was a very professional, amazing doctor to work with. He listened to me and I felt like he really addressed my needs.


The Carle family has taken care of me and my family for a long time. I have no reason to consider going to another facility.
