I have changed insurance plans, and my first experience as an Advocate Medical Group participant was with Dr. Mohammed. He was thoughtful and listened very carefully to what I told him about my previous health providers and their recommendations. I did not have a bad experience, but needed to make a change with my change in healthcare providers. He suggested a speacialist at Advocate for a 2nd opinion, and I am following his advice. This was a good first meeting, and looking forward to working with him on my health issues.

I was very pleased with the way the receptionist greeted me. I was greeted the same way to get ready to have the xray too.

Reviewed on January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

I waited past and hour before anyone called my name. After being called, I waited in the examining room for another half hour. I'm legally blind so, the person I received a ride to the doctors office was on a schedule, and had an infant. When I finally went outside waiting room, irritated at the long wait, I was told the doctor would be in soon. When he finally came in, he didn't show any concern about keeping me waiting. Instead he justified being late because, I should have been informed that I would be waiting. He opened the door to remind the clerk to inform future patients of the wait. My blood pressure was taken by the nurse, earlier. But, he tried to take it again, but I didn't see the point. He did not ask how I was feeling, or show ANYconcern about me as a person. When I asked for a referral to see a specialist, he gave me forms that I didn't 7nderstand and when I got home I was very confused. So, I'm assuming they were something that the clerk had to decipher. But, after that debacle, I had no intention of returning to the clinic. It was a colossal waste of time, for nothing. Getting around is a hardship because, I need to rely on others to get me to appointments, he was not listening, or just didn't care. I have since transferred to Oakland street health. The staff is friendly and the doctors talk to me as a real person, and they provide transportation. I hope I never have to return to Advocate. The clerks are wonderful, but the doctors, not so good.

Dr. Mohammad is an excellent provider, he answers all my questions, never rushes me, he makes me fill like I am his only patient for the day. He takes his time while explaining things to me, ask if I understand and how do I feel about the way my health is going. No one has ever allowed me to fully express my feelings as to whether I feel comfortable taking a certain medication or following a particular regime, I respect the fact that I am included in the decision makings about my health. That's really a plus. If I decide I am not going to take a certain medication or have a certain procedure done, I feel my provider should work with me and take my views into consideration. I enjoy having Dr. Mohammed as my provider and I hope he does not leave the plan.
