4.4 out of 5 (31 Ratings, 4 Comments)4.431

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 have had trouble with follow up appointments. They are on my chart that they were to happen, but we are having trouble making them happen.

Nurses were not only professional, but also friendly and made me feel comfortable. Other cares were provided accordingly.

The RN and HCT staff were outstanding - and I am a retired nurse so I was attentive to their work.


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.

horrible extra small room that was shared, no working shower, toilet leaked,had some very inexperienced nurses, no comman sense, T.V. had bad reception, some meals took 1 1/2 hours to get to room, constantly tripping over things (machines) due to tiny room, way too many doctors giving advice that were not well informed of my case. I'm sure my bill will reflect all the pleasantries of your better rooms, when I certainly got non of that here. Only came to this hospital because that's what my insurance covers. Hope I never have to come back!!!!!
