7/1/19 a very positive experience in all areas from "door greeters" through process of labs to wellness visit, Dr. Drynan is an excellent communicator & caring physician.

Dr. Drynan is an excellent listener. She communicates clearly and I felt an immediate rapport with her. I am confident in the care she provides me. I made an online appointment and it was obvious Dr. Drynan was prepared to see me because she took the time to read what I described as my symptoms when I scheduled the appointment.

Dr. Drynan is my favorite doctor. I have referred many friends to her.

took test a week ago and still have no results

Reviewed on May 5, 2019 7:00 PM

The doctor was thorough and appeared competent. I was asking about cold symptoms, so I wasn't there to discuss my whole medical history. I think I didn't adequately convey a concern of some of my other doctors, who had indicated I was somewhat immune compromised. Perhaps if I had relayed this successfully, she might have ordered an antibiotic instead of having me buy over-the-counter products. Because I still wasn't feeling too good a few days later, I visited Advocate's immediate care center, at which another doctor ordered an antibiotic. Dr. Drynan seems like a very good physician.

Dr. Drynan really took the time to explain my condition to me and really knew what she was talking about. She had excellent bedside manner and the visit actually started earlier in the day when her staff called me to verify the reason for my visit. I felt that she reached out since she didn't recognize my name since I am not a regular patient of hers. This gives me the impression that her patients are important to her and she see them as people and not just as appointments or numbers.

it was a great experience! Thee wait was a little long, but considering Dr. Drynan actually talks with her patients, I don't mind it at all. I much prefer a good doctor who communicates with me to always bring on time since that could mean cutting an important conversation short. I wouldn't want a doctor to do that to me and I wouldn't want a doctor to do that to someone else just so that my appointment starts exactly on time.

more of my concern is with the receptionist staff. When I arrived at the clinic they had a different appointment time then what was told to me over the phone. So I had to wait 45 minutes. I understand mistakes happen but the receptionist did not at all apologize and did not seem very understanding. Then after the 45 minute wait I had to wait another 30 minutes because the doctor was running behind. I completely understand that emergencies come up in the medical field but when the nurse called me back she didn't even recognize that fact that they were running so far behind until I brought it up. Just an observation on my part it is so nice when right away the staff would just say " We are so sorry you had to wait" right upon greeting the patient (not after I inquired why the wait was so long). I had a blood test ordered and per my insurance company I have called the office to see if they coded the test under preventative care to make sure it will be covered. I placed that call 2 days ago and still have not had my call returned. Overall I was very happy with Dr. Dryanan's care.
