this was the worst experience I've had! my annual exam was fast! I explained I had symptoms going on that had changed and was brushed off. I was supposed to have a RX ordered that wasn't. Dr was rushed and not herself

This visit I ended up waiting almost 45 minutes for the doctor to come into the room. This is the first time that has happened. I'm hopeful it was just a one time thing. Other than that, no complaints.

Dr. Bontu was very thorough. She explained the results of my lab tests, discussed my weight and how my numbers were better when I had lost some weight a few years ago. I never feel that she is rushed during my appointment. She listens and sends me to specialists when needed. She always asks about my grandchildren. I always recommend her to friends who ask about a doctor.

Reviewed on April 17, 2019 7:00 PM

I felt that this visit was rushed. The provider usually talked more, but this time seemed different. It was the first visit since Advocate took over and I wondered if the doctors are on a quota or have more patients than before.

I didn't want to do any of the tests that day - but she talked to me and I finally agreed. Dr. Bontu has a 6 sense about her - she gets me, and she should be commended for her work she does.

Reviewed on July 3, 2018 7:00 PM

Previously I found this provider cordial and attentive. I called several weeks prior to this appointment voicing concern about a medication change she had made. I was told side effects were to be expected. About six weeks later I made appointment to reiterate my concerns. She was 40 minutes late and spent approximately five minutes with me. She rebuffed my concerns despite the fact that I was in tears telling her the medication was unacceptable and I was not ok. At the urging of another health care provider I am seeking a second opinion and find it unlucky that I will ever return to this office.
