Always a polite experience across the entire office from the receptionists / nurses / Dr. Z!

My visit with Doctor Z exceptional. as usual. Doctor Z is the reason I continue to go through the agony of setting appointments and dealing with the confusion of the Aurora Advocate Health Care call center.

Reviewed on November 15, 2019 11:00 PM

The best improvement you can make is to allow the patient to contact their doctor's office directly without having to go through to call center, repeat personal info each and every time, being told that my info is missing and need to update when no changes of contact has been done aunce the last visit. Honestly, it takes 20 minutes of my time to make an appointment. Far too much time for anyone to schedule an appointment. Please allow direct office contact, via phone call, within your network system when the patient knows the doctor who is needed schedule the appointment with.
