The clinic looks clean and neat and very organized. The only thing that I have a concern is that I got there before the appt. time and I waited for a long time.

She needs to attend pain management training. She only focused on the opioids and the negativity surrounding them. Did NOT care about why they are taken, nor empathized w/chronic pain and its effects.

She was more concerned with me taking tramadol and Ativan but never asked or listened to why I was taking the drugs. She took it on herself to reduce my dosage. I am in so much pain and so anxious about it I'm having difficulty moving around and completing normal tasks. She treated me like I was a street drug addict. She contradicted every explanation I gave for why I was on these. She just would not listen to me and this was my first visit due to change of insurance.

They thought I was there for a routine check up when I was there to talk about specific issues I was having. I specifically asked to renew a birth control prescription and this doctor was unable to do so (but only told me this once i was in the room), so I was told I would have to see another doctor for that. I started discussing one issue I was having with the doctor and she told me to look online for more info about the issue, when she knew I had already done so before coming in. Literally told me to go online to get info, and I had to tell her that I wanted to discuss TREATMENT, not google more info. After discussing treatment, she was shooing me out the door without letting me tell her about the other issues I came in for. And there again, without discussing what treatment she could offer, she first discussed me going to a specialist. But after talking, she figured out she could offer some treatment.

The receptionist did not acknowledge me when I approached the window. Only when I began looking towards the other window did she ask how she could help me. The staff behind the desk was having loud personal conversations heard throughout the waiting area, and the receptionist participated as she checked me in. completely unprofessional. I had to ask the receptionist to repeat herself because the others behind the desk were laughing/talking so loudly. I will be seeking another provider after my most recent experience. I feel I can receive better care with more professional staff elsewhere. I also had a negative experience getting the ordered blood work done, as well as with previous visits to immediate care at the same facility.

I am equally impressed with Dr. Moaddab and will continue to see her as my PCP. I have experience of over 20 years in a hospital setting as a licensed clinical social worker. I wish Dr. Miaddab could be cloned. She is great and would serve any hospital extremely well. I am so happy with my sister's recommendation.

had a paper faxed to be filled out for my insurance and when they called me to let me know my lab came back normal they said they couldn't find my paper. This office is not close for me they had me drive all the way back up there to drop it off again didnt make it till 3 or 4 they told me the Dr was gone already they left it on her desk to be filled out. so I was very angry I still didnt get my form filled out. I don't even know if my form was even filled out still. As long as I've been coming here seeing my regular Dr I have never had this issue before. My forms have never been lost and I have never had to drive all the way back there to take another form to them because they misplaced the one they got when I was there.

went to see her because needed refill for my lyrica. she had no idea I was even taking it. I gave her a sheet with all my medication on first visit when filled out new patient form. she had hardly any of my medication on her computer file. when I go see her no one ever asks me about my medicine . what I take , anything new or stopped. nothing!!! I was very upset she has no clue to my medicines which most are prescription ones. she also told me a procedure I am going to have with pain management is just a "myth " and will not work!!! she had not even researched it . I will not go back to her or advocate. it is not a safe place. not when they don't even know your medication. also been having high BP . she says it's not that bad. it is 150/ 105. I will be going to Northwestern health care.

She's the best doctor I had in years. She's really listening to what I telling about my health. We really had a good conversation and that really helped me.
