the doctor and his nurse are excellent. the process to get an appointment or medical advice is not working. the people who answer phones do not know how to handle situations and provide no access to medical needed

I use North Shore for primary doctor and their execution of making appointments, etc is much better. it's the same model but much better handled. I like the endocrinologist at Advocate but find the access systems are frustrating and put my health at risk

Dr. Koh is nice, caring and so pleasant to talk with. The one thing that stuck out to me was that he remembered a crisis that I had when I first met him as my doctor. I was suffering from a relapse with my panic disorder, and he was very understanding and calming at that time, and at this appointment, he complimented me on my weight loss, and that it looked like I was doing much better with my anxiety; which I am. I left the appointment feeling great.
