4.6 out of 5 (167 Ratings, 17 Comments)4.6167

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 heard the same thing I heard from my Dermatologist. I spent a copay and nothing new was discovered. Very disappointing!

09/23/2019

Yes. I went to the doctor and he thought it was nerves and wanted me to get a nerve test. Unfortunately with the tingling on my arm, which is very unbearable, I couldn't even get a test scheduled until after the first of the year, which... and they do it right in the office, which I think is really ridiculous. I mean, when people have problems, I think they should be able to be seen a little sooner than 3 or 4 months down the road.

I saw Jim Berkes. He always answers my questions and makes me feel at ease. Very good experience.


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.

This visit with Ortho was very good! Much better than other departments I have had to deal with. Carle therapy dept. in Spine clinic next to the hospital is a joke. Sad waist of my time and big loss of out of pocket money.

glad you were there when I needed you

I get cortisone shots in my wrists and they aren't pleasant, however because Dr. Berkes is so good in explaining everything and in giving the shots, he makes an unpleasant experience tolerable. I think he's great.
