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.

*Dr. Bane called me...when he found out what was wrong with me, I was glad! He must be a worker!


Felt like dr. was late for a meeting not late into appointment, waited 20 mins. for him to come into room for 5 mins. of his time. Didn't provide good service at all.
