4.5 out of 5 (33 Ratings, 10 Comments)4.533

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.

On two occasions. I received a message to call back period each time. I was unable to reach my care provider.

There was a mix up when I picked up my renewed prescriptions. One that is ongoing had not been filled as the PA had told them not to...but they could per my request. That was a different RX that we had discussed.
