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 was not happy with the kiosk, would not tell me if my transaction (entering of my personal info) was complete. A waste of my time as I had to get back in line and have personnel at the desk do it again.

I felt very comfortable & really liked the doctor & her aids.

Get some magazines for your waiting room. Maybe a potted plant or two. Maybe reconfigure your seating. It is a very sterile, uncomfortable environment.


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.

Dr. Fischer took the time to make a special potion for my son's wart instead of scaring him and not letting him be scared of what she's doing. She made it fun and good luck reliable. She explained everything to me about what she's doing and how she's doing it and she's a great doctor.

Dr. Denise Fischer is a very competent and kind physician and my appointments are always on time. And she shows genuine concern. What happens is I get my toe nails cut so my toenails are cut perfectly and she checks my feet for any other problems. It's fine. I just woke up from a nap. So I hope I did all this right. I guess I'm supposed to hang up now. I don't know you didn't tell me.

When I go to Dr. Fischer, I always feel better at the end of the appointment because they have made a great Improvement in the way my feet feel.
