Dr Traeger is absolutely amazing with our son. He explained the new Advocate Aurora app to me and said for me to stop at the front desk and they would help me get it set up. The person at check out was not willing to help at all and told me twice that I would have to go to the website and figure it out. She said she had no idea about any of it. This left me with the feeling that she needs much more training on Advocate employee to patient expectations.
