4.8 out of 5 (197 Ratings, 27 Comments)4.8197

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 left my appointment feeling confident with the diagnosis and plan of action.

All of the staff was very friendly and helpful and responsive. Christy Barre is an excellent Health provider. She listens. She thinks of other possibilities medication is it always the first answer. And you feel like you can talk to her and she does listen and not just want to prescribe medication or not pay attention to what you're actually telling her. She's an excellent provider.

I saw a nurse practitioner who was very knowledgeable. However, I was supposed to see the P.A. who canceled my appointment 2 times. I will not see the P.A. again since she has also had to reschedule me a number of times in the past.


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.

From checking in, taking vitals, seeing the doctor or nurse practitioner, to checking out, the staff is friendly, courteous and informative. As a relative newcomer to this community, I feel very comfortable coming to Carle for my medical needs. Keep it up!

Christy Barre is fabulous. She really listens and is extremely compassionate. She is unlike so many doctors who rush in and out. She takes time with you and you certainly get all of her attention.

thanks for patience with elderly and cognitive impairment pt :)

When my vitals were taken, the side pumped the cuff up to 200 and then said 140/70. I said that is much higher than my usual pressure, she retook it and said 108/68. I don't believe either number was correct.

06/25/2019

Christy Barre gives excellent care. She know my health concerns and listens to my questions. I always leave the office knowing what I need to do to better my health. We always go over my meds and talk about them. She always talks in away way that is easy to understand my issues. I feel fortunate to have her as my PA.

Ever since I started seeing Dr [...] and the NP's Christy Barre and [...] many years ago, I have been VERY happy with my medical care and treatment at the [...] Clinic. It's not that it's just convenient to where I now live, but everyone from the clerical staff to the doctors have always been very helpful and knowledgeable.
