No Patient Experience Reviews – Why Not?

Gundersen Health System requires a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys in a 12-month period for each clinician before posting a clinician’s rating. Industry best practice is clear that more data provides a more accurate picture of the patient experience.

Personal Interests

Katya Alcaraz Voelker was born in California but has lived most of her life in Wisconsin. Both of her parents are Mexican so she is bilingual with significant ties to her heritage. She started her interest in medicine while she interpreted for many Spanish-speaking patients. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. She hopes to be able to provide care to individuals of all backgrounds, especially those underserved. She enjoys seeing patients from the very young to the elderly and anything in between and serving the whole family. Some of her personal interests outside of medicine include spending time with her family, music (singing/dancing), and reading, exploring outdoors, and playing video games.
