Dr. Mazhar is always professional, patient and informative. I have no issue with this provider. however, my most recent clinic visits and phone calls to any provider since you became part of "Advocate" have been negative. Staff are far less personable, treated my like a number, sometimes curt, rude and condescending. Too bad you have lost your personal touch since the full merger with Advocate. As a healthcare professional myself with a high commitment to patient safety, quality care and satisfaction, very disappointing to see where healthcare has gone.....especially with your clinics.

I had a colonoscopy. the doctor spoke with me both before and after the procedure to explain things. he used language that was easy to understand and took his time explaining things and fielding my questions.

Reviewed on January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

My visit to Dr. Mazhar's office was for the purpose of validating that it was appropriate to have an exploratory/preventative colonscopy which I am on a schedule of having every five years. I think Dr. Mazhar is a very good gastroenterologist and has a very positive, strong bedside manner or way in which he interacts with me and his other patients. His nurse who saw me first was also very pleasant and engaging. I've had nothing but positive experiences with Dr. Mazhar (true for my wife also). He is a wonderful specialist I see and I feel very comfortable in his care.

Reviewed on January 26, 2019 6:00 PM

I was extremely impressed when Dr. Mazhar came in that he already knew my medical history relating to my problem. Also, I was impressed that he was honest and up-front about not knowing exactly what was causing my problem but was willing to try something and asked me to come for a follow-up in two months. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
