4.7 out of 5 (45 Ratings, 23 Comments)

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.

This provider has been with me through all my cancer treatments. She is very good with me.


Everything went well with this visit.


It was my first visit with doctor & at Carle.


*Dr. Zhao is great!!! She makes me feel great!! I am cancer free, thanks to her.


*Carle is wonderful.


Excellent doctor; [...]


This place is scary don't trust. DOESN'T LISTEN. Pushes test too fast. Set up times with out permission. Can't call & talk to dr. or nurse. Never available same day. One time I called & they didn't even know the... Right hand doesn't know what left hand is doing. POOR COMMUNICATION stupid people on phone you called for appointment from you but appt. makes not there. Dumb.


Dr. had an emergency come in & was running late. She was trying to make up time & was cutting most normal thing short. The emergency did not bother me as it could be me some day.


From *Dr. Zhao down to the nurses I believe I have the best cancer care around. *Dr. Zhao always goes over my treatment plan to every appointment by and the nurses always check up on me and if new anything *Dr. Zhao always makes sure I receive it.


*Dr. Zhao always shows concern for my condition, inquiring about me, how I feel, whether I want other services provided by Carle regarding my overall well-being - talks TO me, not past me.


She is busy & had no time or tolerance for personal conversation or in depth explanations. [...]


She is always nice with a smile, but very soft spoken & hard to hear her most of the time. I hear others say that about hearing her. I think she's a good doctor, just doesn't talk a lot.


Only good.


I have had very good experiences with Dr. Zhoa.


I wish the doctor had more time to explain and answer questions when I'm there for a visit. She's pretty good but I get the sense that since I'm going to wait and watch. [...]


Feel that I get good care from *Dr. Zhao. Results from blood test are very expeditious, timely, right away.


After concurring w/asst. *Dr. Zhao called my daughter and completed her time with me by talking and questing my daughter and taking into account questions my daughter had as well. Very professional!


We are very lucky to have a dedicated professional like *Dr. Zhao not only for her medical expertise but also for her compassion.


*Dr. Zhao is wonderful!


Very good.
