She has been my provider prior to her joining Advocate. In the past I felt she provided the best care for me. My thoughts have changed and I am disappointed in the care I am receiving. I doubt that I will be back.

As it relates to my answers regarding surgery or other procedures, they are not meant to be negatives toward Dr. Brandies. I answered the way I did, because Dr. Brandies and I have been, up to this point, on the same page, so she already knows what my thinking is regarding having other procedures performed. And, if it's any indication, I followed Dr. Brandies from NMG (where I'd been a patient of hers for quite a number of years) to Advocate.

I really appreciate the accommodation of the front staff with scheduling an appointment quickly. At first, I was going to be scheduled for a physical 2 weeks after my inquiry. However, after I explained the need to see the doctor sooner, the receptionist recommended a change in the type of appointment schedule. As it turns out, there was an appointment available that same week for a follow up rather than a physical. I am extremely grateful for the receptionist and the flexibility with scheduling to accommodate a patient.
