Dr. Julka is one of the most compassionate, thoughtful, and thorough doctors I have met. From the first time we met he had already taken the time to really know my medical history. He never made me feel rushed and explained things very well. After the procedure, he took a great deal of time to explain results and how to proceed. I think the works of Dr. Julka and very grateful my care fell into his hands.

He was a good listener. Took his time and listened to all my concerns.

Reviewed on January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Julka was very knowledgeable, kind and respectful. it is very hard to get through to him when I needed test results and answers to my questions after my procedures. The My Chart system was "down" for any communication due to the computers changes with Advocate and I did not receive a follow-up call after the procedures (which I had some problems with) as expected. nor did I receive a letter of follow-up results either. I called three times requesting those biopsy results and finally was given partial results by My Chart. I do not blame the doctor, but the support staff for not communicating. I had similar problems a year ago when I was ill. It took over 5 days that time to finally get a "work-in" appointment which was 3 weeks out! as a life-long patient of the clinic, I have never experienced such lack of communication and length of attention needing appointments.

Reviewed on January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

explained alternatives and based some discussion on procedures from 2014 that impacted my current condition.Unlike most surgeons that I have encountered, Dr Julka was better informed because he has access to MyChart and knew more about my health than I did
