What People Say About Dr. Anjali Gopal, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Gopal was rude, condescending and dismissive. She talked bad about other patients to me. She did not examine my problem area after multiple visits. She said I was probably having pain because I was out of shape and fat. She said she couldn't take my pain seriously if I wasn't willing to take medication for it on a daily basis. Had to go to another doctor to get a diagnosis. I will never go to her again.

I have never came across a doctor like her!!! She dismissed everything I said from the moment I entered the door until I left. I’ve been experiencing lupus symptoms since October. I provided all documentation and photos. A positive ANA etc...she didn’t show any empathy just oh, you’re probably stressed! What a joke she is!

Dr go pal was rude, uninformed, and not interested in me. Seemed in a hurry to end the session. I was the last patient and she wanted to get home. I have been to many doctors but never one so unfit for the profession. She is a disgrace to the profession.

She was unhelpful in a hurry and treated me like a number. She should take lessons on how to communicate with patients. She is devoid of compassion and a friendly personality. I would NEVER recommend her to anyone.

I got referred to the Rheum department and got an appointment with Dr. Gopal for 2+ months out. Going there, I hit traffic so I called to let the office know I’d be 15 minutes late. They said they’d pass it on and to still come. When I arrived, Dr. Gopal refused to see me and the front desk staff was entirely unhelpful. They failed to tell me on my way not to come, and Dr. Gopal has no flexibility, which you would expect for a new patient and given these reviews. Don’t waste your time!!

Dr. Gopal has been thorough and kind throughout a difficult process of finding the right medicine to help with my arthritis and psoriasis. She kept trying to figure out what would work best for me and after two and half years we found the right one. During that time she was compassionate and informed, and made sure I was informed as well. I'd recommend Dr. Gopal to everyone!

I was passed on to her because my Dr. retired. I saw her maybe 5x. Hoping maybe I just caught her on a bad day. No, she is as bad as other reviewers stated. No thourough exams, bedside manner sucks, talks down to you if you are not as sick as her other patients. Once said “you don’t have cancer. You are not that sick.” I have an issue I told her about almost a yr. ago. She brushed it off saying I was just fat. I’m now scheduling surgery with another Dr. I’ve been in pain for a year. SMH...

Dr. Gopal has been extremely responsive in her communication with me and has tried numerous therapies to help control my arthritis. I have multiple health issues and she coordinates care and medications with my other docs. I'm very happy with the care she has provided and especially with timely and responsive communication. I recommend Dr. Gopal.

Reviews are so mixed for her care seems like it's either excellent or poor.Based on my experience I can just say that she didn't listen to my symptoms or have any bedside manners AT ALL. She talked to me in the most condecending way and when I mentioned test results she just said it's not that bad. I live with pain that interferes with my everyday life and the test results say in the comments section that is more than triple of what it should be and to visit the doctorASAP. NEVER again!

I have multiple health issues that stem from inflammatory problems, and I can tell you that Dr. Gopal is not only very knowledgeable, but she also cares A LOT. She makes sure to spend adequate time with her patients, and also responds very quickly whenever she is emailed through Northwestern's Patient Portal.
