Everything about this practice is great. Everyone very friendly. When you call you are callingt he office and can speak to someone right away. This is very important. A number Advocate locations do not have this type of service. Meaning you call into a call center and they contact the office and you hope the office will get back to you in 24 hours. That type of service is completely unacceptable.

the dr was very nice but didn't check my vitals or listen to my heartbeat or breathing. I felt rushed. He also said I did not need my pain medicine that I have been on for a few years that I've been getting every month. I work on my feet all day and have bad sciatic nerve pain so I needed my medicine to get through the day. he stopped my meds and it's been horrible.

Last fall my provider dropped Advocate and when advocate isshed me a new Provider, I called and told them I did not want their choice, but wanted to change to this Dr. I have been meaning to see him for a regular maintenance visit, but had not yet, when I had intensitinal issues and needed to see a doctor the same day, I walked into his office and even though he was leaving shortly to make his hospital rounds, he stayed to see me and was very very helpful and put me on antibotics asap -
