Dr. Tschopp is perhaps the kindest, most knowledgeable family doctor I have ever had. I can't recommend her enough. She takes time to really listen and has been very helpful to both myself and my husband.

Review for Dr. Fuhr

When Dr Browne was with Aurora she pulled me through a liver transplant. Without her caring and help not only myself nor my wife would have handled the emotional ups and downs to a successful conclusion. We were very disappointed she left for Agnesian.

Dave Paschke Jul 04 2020

Review for Dr. Browne

Impossible to get an appointment even after a critical hospital stay. My co- pays were always higher with him than any Dr. I have seen in the Aurora network. I would suggest he stay with Pediatric medicine and leave Primary Care. I highly recommend Dr. Jolanta Pentala for Primary Care.

Dr. Sureddi has been my primary doctor for many years. I always leave her office understanding her evaluation and treatment of any issues I may have. She makes sure that all my questions are answered before I leave. She is polite and friendly - makes me fee l very comfortable.

Dr Nfor is the best doctor I have been to. He truly cares not just about your disease but also about you as a person. He and his staff are efficient and always kind. He saved my life when I had a cardiac arrest and fixed the blockage in my arteries. I am lucky to have him.

May 24 2020

Review for Dr. Nfor

Never actually saw him face to face in ER. Was sent home with my cellulitis on oral meds. Very dangerous thing since I had it before and turned into the deadly sepsis. Eric needs more education before he accidentally kills someones!!

I was able to see Dr. Mannino for some issues with my legs as it relates to diabetes. He took time with me and clearly explained options and what I needed to change. His patient experience was better than any I have seen prior. I would recommenced Dr. Mannino for anyone seeking medical advice!

I am sure he is knowledgeable enough but has a pretty a less than happy demeanor. Performs quite a few tests but without follow up and more importantly, without it helping my heart condition. Will need to find someone who can offer a solution.

Review for Dr. Eskinder

I always make it a point to go with private practice groups for my family’s healthcare. Hospital groups just check the boxes and send you on your way, not really caring because it’s like a factory. My visit with Dr. Qureshi proved me correct once again. The care and compassion was exceptional

His bedside manner is great if and when you can get in to see him. That is the challenge. You are typically dealing with his nurse practitioner.
