4.7 out of 5 (175 Ratings, 34 Comments)4.7175

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've seen Dr Kramer for awhile now and will always stay with her. She's a Doctor but also a caring person as well. I'm not sure on the name of the nurse who helped me but she was very courteous and helpful.


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.

Wait was to long considering the actual time the doctor spends with the patient.

I have avoided Carle facilities wherever possible due to errors that were made in the care of my mother, yet I have to say that my experience today was great and encouraging while establishing care for the first time with Doctor Kramer.

I saw I saw Dr. Kramer and her staff and all the staff out there are very very helpful and very courteous and everything they do is just as professional and they've always been that way and I will continue to go to see them and everything. Dr. Kramer is the best in my opinion. So that's what I say about all of them out there. They are the best. Thank you.

Dr Kramer and her staff have always made me feel like my health matters. This is why I have been with her for more than ten years and will continue to chose her.

I have a great doctor and [...] and nurses. Would not go anywhere else. Everyone there does a great job.

There needs to be a sign that the drop off point cause there's people parking there. Alright. They're leaving the vehicle running, maybe a passenger in there, but they're not there to drop that person off or pick them up and they're running in there, the driver is, and leaving the vehicle running out there, blocking the way for others to pull up and drop someone off. There needs to be a sign out there indicating what to do and what not to do. That's all.

Dr Kramer is the BEST

I have been going to the Rantoul Clinic for almost 30 years....I absolutely trust my doctor explicitly - and her recommendations are always right on the money - I will always, willingly, keep her as my primary care physician, even thought I cannot always see her - when I am attended to by someone else, I still have the trust and confidence in their attention. I cannot fathom what the workload is in that clinic, or anywhere else, for that matter - but I am a satisfied customer and any inconvenience I think I have is certainly not worthy of mention!
