The provider Dr. Shanmugam was helpful. Spent time with me. And suggested further treatment such as ENT, MRI and Cardiologist. I was late by 8 minutes to reach the reception. But he gave me another appointment the same day considering my health condition.

The general check-up visit went fine. But I expected more advice/method to follow good health exercises/food habits.

Dr. Shanmugam listened closely to my concerns and used an abundance of caution in planning next steps: He requested I consult with my psychiatrist first for a new prescription he felt would be beneficial out of concern for my overall health instead of just starting me on it.

Doctor Shanmugam was professional, friendly, and made me feel comfortable selecting him as my main health care provider in this first-time visit.

Reviewed on March 10, 2019 7:00 PM

I know I scheduled the appointment with relatively short notice but the doctor knew literally nothing about me. Part of the reason I chose this doctor was because I thought it would be easy for my other providers at Advocate to share information but for some reason or another it was even worse than when I went to my previous, non-Advocate doctor. When I filled him in on my medical conditions (depression, anxiety) he gave me unsolicited and not very good advice when I clearly told him I already see a psychiatrist and psychologist (literally one floor below his office). He seemed to want to get me out of there as soon as possible and I had a very bad impression overall. I gave him my vaccination records and he assured me my file would be updated but there is no change in any of my information save for the tests he ordered. If I knew there was another option for the hours I was available I would pick that one. Now I'll probably be picking a new PCP next year.

The provider was fine. We addressed everything we needed, but I definitely felt like I was undercut on face to face time. I had nothing too serious to speak of during this visit so I didn't mind, but I did notice. Provider did seem to listen when I asked questions and followed through immediately with what we discussed.

the wait time to see the doctor was excessive. I went downstairs to get bloodwork and was then told I had to go back up to give a urine sample bc they forgot. I had my toddler with me so it was not convenient. thankfully the lab offered to take it downstairs so I didn't have to wait again upstairs

I like my Dr. and the nurse ., but I would seriously consider changing providers if things don't improve with my concerns . by the way my wife is also a patient and feels like I do about things .
