4.7 out of 5 (109 Ratings, 6 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.

I really enjoy Dr. Egner.


Dr. Egner is thoughtful and very intelligent, with a broad understanding of the human body. As such, Dr. Egner has a lot offer a patient in terms of explaining what's going on. I appreciate that and I strongly encourage Dr. Egner to continue sharing his thinking.
