Dr. Slacedo is a nice person and I am sure that she is very helpful & caring person! However, she is not a good listener! It can frustrate most people especially w/ those w/ lots of pain. Before prescribing any medication, test of anything should be taken first.

Last fall season, I was drifting away from taking the diuretic medicine prescribed for me. I was having serious symptoms of venous insufficiency (CHF) by early December. I was short of breath at the least exertion; my legs badly swollen, and covered with ulcers, were very painful. I thought I could get back to normal on my own, but gave up in 12/06. When Dr. Salcedo examined my legs, she stopped and insisted that I go immediately to the Lutheran General Hospital emergency room and explained why I should be ready to stay there as a patient due to her concern for infection and blood clots. Her reaction persuaded me and I followed her orders, though driving my own car. The emergency dept. seemed prepared for my arrival. They were not too judgmental. I needed 9 days in the hospital, another 21 in a nursing/rehab. facility, and some new medications and dosages before I could to home.

I really enjoy having Dr. Salcedo as my MD, she is thorough and not an alarmist. she emphasizes on preventable care and takes time to listen. What I am not happy about is how difficult it is to make an appointment or call the office. I needed labs, it was at least 4 phone calls and a trip to the office and then was "yelled " because I walked in. they rudely explained that they do not take walki in but there was not 1 person in the waiting room or lab. they finally took me which I was done in less than 5 minutes. both lab personal and front desk were not pleasant. I expect the whole team to want what is best for the patient as I was coming i for my appointment and md wanted labs beforehand. I know there are rules but when you can accommodate someone you should. I also work in healthcare and fell like Advicote was acting like a big box and the patient was coming in last. I also put this in perspective as mine was just labs but can see how frustrating this could be on a bigger scale. I do consider going to a private office if I didn't enjoy my ohysicisn so much and is extremely convenient .
