Really like Dr. Sharma. She is professional, caring and current in her knowledge. She helped me understand several issues and move towards making choices.

DR Sharma was Great but I was extremely disappointed in the facility and Advocate. The facility and the way it is managed make you feel as if you were on an assembly line. The Advocate Portal is awkward and unless the patient continually uses the system Advocate Changes system and a Patient is unable to Access.

I greatly dislike the Advocate Condell System - Can never reach the doctor directly, for one thing. While I like this doctor very much I am looking for another one outside of Advocate. I feel like a number or a piece of meat when I visit - was asked three times for a photo ID because the people at reception failed to scan it correctly! I had to wait FOUR DAYS for the results of blood work and I had to initiate the call! I don't like the way I feel when I walk into the office or hospital - angry and anxious.
