I really like my provider but he has too much of a work load on him. I guess that when you are good that's all in it. He's been my provider for many many years. I would not trade him for anything.

Wait time was unacceptable. More than an hour and half wait.

Reviewed on April 23, 2019 7:00 PM

the doctor was very informative and very helpful. unfortunatly the experience I had with the doctor was tainted by the ubsured wait time to see him... nearly 2 hours and 30 mins waiting in his office... it saddens me that I will not be making further appointments at this location and fear that other advocate medical groups will be similar.

Reviewed on April 19, 2019 7:00 PM

This was the worst advocate doctors office on 99th Western in my life. I'm a patient at the advocate on Ravenswood and Wilson and their are the best. When it's your appointment time you are seen at least no later than 15 minutes after your appointment. Not on Western my appointment was at 4pm and I didnt get seen until 5:45pm and didnt get out until 7pm. Truly unbelievable. I couldn't wait to call my Insurance provider and change me back up North.

The wait was too long. I waited for almost 2 hours. This deters me from seeing the doctor regularly.

Reviewed on February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

I went in for a follow up appointment after my visit to ER because my regular physician was not available for the next few weeks. I was diagnosed in ER with a gallbladder attack. I was worried because I was still having significant pain and trouble breathing, and wanted advice on treatment. The provider told me that I was diagnosed wrong and just had back pain and to take Aleve for muscle pain, and he dismissed all the other symptoms I was having that pointed to a gallbladder attack. I felt he didn't respect anything I had to say and didn't care. I also waited for my appointment for over an hour after my scheduled time just to be called into the examination room.
