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.

My daughter did not receive the prescription she was supposed to because the doctor forgot to send it to the pharmacy. So she was seen on a Tuesday morning and did not get her medicine until Thursday afternoon. Otherwise, the visit was not too bad.

Yes, we had a very good experience in Mattoon, but my, my biggest request would be if we could have a doctor in Arthur so we don't need to get a taxi and drive so far. But I realize that's not always, that's not always easy to do. but so far, we we really enjoyed the Carle doctors and we enjoyed seeing them, but but that would be, that would be my feedback. If we have a doctor in Arthur it would make it a lot easier for us. Okay. Thank you.

It was wonderful. Thank you very much for everything you've done. I can't wait to keep having you as my provider for [...]'s lifetime. Thank you. Take care.


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.

[...] I'm very very thankful for all the doctors and nurses at [Carle]. Every time that there's a problem with one of my children I bring them there and they do everything that they can to help them. They do a great job explaining to me the problem, what's going to happen if the problem gets worse, what's going to happen with the problem gets better, what I should expect from the problem, what I could do when I leave to prevent and help the problem from happening again. And I always feel safe in confident knowing that they're going to do everything they can to make my child get better. [...], and I'm just really thankful for [Carle], and all the doctors nurses, and they do a great job
