She is worth the wait. She is smart, funny, and has a wonderful memory. She gets things. She not only knows her stuff, but she understands that health ism't just what the numbers and conditions (or lack thereof) are. She is always running at least 30 mins behind, and I have been there many times for an hour or two waiting. Call ahead and ask. I always go in, check in, and come back. I go to the Jewel by the clinic, get my nails done, or if at the hospital location, I will get food or browse the gift shop. Again she is worth it. She speaks to your level. I have worked in healthcare for my entire adult life. Elmhurst has the best docs I have been with, and that is saying a lot since I worked and received care from a Malcolm Baldridge award winning health system before moving back to IL. See her. You might have to call to get a sick visit appointment as MyChart isn't always current. But she will get you in.

The wait is horrible. Not worth it. She's a good doctor but for a 4pm appointment that I'm on time for, I have to wait in the waiting room for 25 min and then in the exam room for 25 min without anyone apologizing for the wait or giving updates

I love Dr. Pillai she has been my doctor for over 15 years and is the only doctor I trust. Sometimes you may need to wait but she is definitely worth it. She listens to you and gives you the time you need and remembers all the concerns regarding your health even if it has been awhile since you have seen her. She has personally called me if I have left a message regarding an issue l have had. There is no better doctor around. If you are looking for a doctor who will put you first she is it

I would never recommend this doctor. After waiting for 50 minutes I went to the counter to see if I had been forgotten. I was told she routinely runs 2 hours late and this was normal for her. I cancelled my appointment and left. While I was waiting a patient of another physician in this group came in 20 minutes late. They were told there was 15 minute window for patients to be late and they would have to ask if they could be seen or would have to reschedule. Talk about a double standard!
