4.5 out of 5 (102 Ratings, 23 Comments)4.5102

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.

Not all my medications were passed to nurses. Told them I get nebulizer treatment ever 4 hours and got 1 my entire stay The only dr I saw was in to tell me of discharge. Great care in ER and Health Tec's went above and beyond for my care.

09/12/2019

Dr. Dawson answered ALL of my questions and didn't make me feel rushed

09/05/2019

Overall my experience was positive. My doctor had an emergency so my surgery was about an hour late but I understand & have no problem with that.


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.

Very nice facility. I was not stressed and was very comfortable the entire time. I had my gall bladder removed and was home by noon or so.

09/04/2019

Yeah, If this is Dr. Dawson's office. I did like him I do like him and I think that he is a great doctor. He's very well. I'm very satisfied with Dr. Dawson and that was a mix up on my surgery, but that man is he's a very good man. Anyway, that's all I have to say. Thank you.

Before taking blood pressure ask if patient experiences pain with automatic cuffs. I do! Very painful and therefor shows very high blood pressure due to pain. I have not EVER had a problem with old fashioned type that nurses operate.

08/01/2019

My experience was great. It was a good day. I enjoyed everyone I encountered from start to finish. It was a wonderful facility. I am happy to have the Carle organizations available to me here in my home community.

My only complaint is that I don't like driving to Fields South.

07/17/2019

Thank you

Location is not the easiest to get to, need better signage to direct people to the right building.

06/24/2019

I thought that the doctor was in a hurry and I didn't get enough of my questions answered. And that's about it.

06/12/2019

I really like the doctor!

05/30/2019

Dr Dawson was fabulous. He was very knowledgeable, and also very down to earth and friendly. You don't really find those things together in a provider. I trust him completely.

05/23/2019

I had Dr. Dawson today and I seen multiple surgeons over the years and Dr. Dawson is great. He listens to you, he helps you and I would love to continue to see him because he has worked ... done multiple surgeries on me, and he's great.

05/17/2019

Yes, the new campus is very very confusing there needs to be much better signage. It's so easy to get lost and we ended up at a wrong building and had to go further. So they really need to get better signage.

03/27/2019

I was extremely happy and impressed with Dr. Dawson. He spent the time to explain the situation, looked at previous scan results and gave me a variety of options. Probably the best Dr. consult I have had. Thanks!

03/25/2019

Yes, I really did appreciate this doctor who I thought was very very good and I was very pleased with him. I didn't know who was my first visit with him and I I thought it was very good.

03/25/2019

I have always been made comfortable when in pain and kept informed of each step in the procedure. I am most confident in this provider's skills.

03/14/2019

Very pleased with care!

03/12/2019

I had a very positive experience with the nurses and staff at Tower 7 Surgical staff. I appreciate all they did for me.
