It was a follow up for an ER. I waited hours, the front desk screwed up my time, did not let me know it would be 2 to 3 hour wait. They are not very smart and not very nice! They would rather talk and gossip among themselves,not All, but a few. I went up to front desk to ask why it was taking so long and theypretended not to see me and one looked up and said oh, do you need something? They were by the way talking with each other. There seemed to be one older woman doing all the work, the rest were like a a highscool lunch room gathering. I waited in the exam room another 40 minutes, after waiting hours to get in to see the doctor. This doctor is one of the best humanitarian intelligent doctors ever! She is overbooked and overworked, what the hell is going on with Advocate lately!! My other doctor left the practice to work exclusively at the hospital. unfortunately....and now I am at this clinic. It needs someone to mange better the whole system needs better management...
