Learn about Dr. Prete

Care Philosophy

As a primary care specialist, I partner with each person to provide the information they need to make informed choices to improve and maintain their health. I spend time with each person to get to know their unique preferences. My practice philosophy is based on scientific evidence and current guidelines. I believe in collecting as much information from the patient through their story and physical exam to minimize the time to diagnosis and the amount of testing needed to be done.

After having seen this doctor five times in six years, Dr. Prete is very good at providing just enough information to leave it as skinny, would not want to leave you too informed. Good enough if you are not really sick. Cool bed side manner, probably very over worked so cannot be involved. Competent but always working for her corporate boss Northshore Healthcare. My recommendation is she's ok not terrific competent but no genius. She is a very nice woman dresses up well. Seems thoughtful.

Dr. Prete is, quite simply, the best primary care physician I have ever had. She has an amazing quality of making the patient feel that she has all the time in the world for that patient. In the 10+ years I have been Dr. Prete's patient, I have never felt rushed. She has a very calm presence. It takes a long time to get a first appointment with her, and I have waited up to an hour for an appointment, but these issues are trivial to me in comparison to the very high medical care she provides.
