The provider and his direct staff were fantastic. The issues arise with getting lab work scheduled in MyAdvocate and getting the lab work added to the To-Dos. Other providers at Advocate do it. This one seems to fail. This can not be the failing of Dr. Rousseau. I trust the provider implicitly. He needs help from the administration.

Waited an hour to see doctor, i had to come out of the exam room and ask where he was. he finally came in with another person(im guessing she was a student doctor), he never introduced her or asked my permission for her to be part of my visit. i found that unprofessional.

Wait time was well over 30 min to see the doctor, as I had been there on time for my appointment 15 min before. Since Advocate took over several systems it's a mess. wait times gone way up. I sat and watched for my last blood draw while the phlebotomist chatted with an other worker for over 25 minutes I could hear their conversation and it was about going out to places to eat, visits elsewhere etc. What a bunch of crap. If I hadn't needed Dr. Rousseau and for which I do respect him greatly; (He saved my life) I get the hell out of Advocate what a joke it's become now. Best of all nobody there seams to care! at the site I went for my blood draw.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer several years ago. My wife and I met with Dr. Rousseau with respect to treatment options. Dr. Rousseau covered ALL options and we discussed each one in detail. I opted a "wait and watch" approach which involved quarterly office visits and an annual biopsy. My most recent visit was for my annual biopsy. My condition has remained stable and we agreed to continue this protocol.

I was very disappointed in my experience with Dr. Rousseau. I felt he was dismissive and disinterested. His recommendation of not doing the procedure was in direct contrast to the advice of the ER physician. Instead, he informed me to "just take advil and drink lots of water" to deal with a 14mm kidney stone. I found his justification the he himself has "passed a number of kidney stones - the pain isn't that bad - all you have to do is drink plenty of water and Advil should cover the discomfort" was rude and unbelievable. When his scheduler called that afternoon to tell me he was willing to schedule me for a lithotripsy - but not for 3 weeks, I asked for a new doctor. As I responded to her "I didn't give a about what his pain tolerance was - until he delivered a 9+lb baby without medication I really didn't want his opinion."
