Springfield, IL |
She is very attentive, listens and is thorough. I have found it difficult to schedule timely appointments with her directly. I was referred to Jessica Dour RN, MSN, FNP-C in the same office. She is as fantastic as Dr Ventress.
Springfield, IL |
I wish that she would have a conversation that would include eye contact and good listening instead of asking a long list of computer generated questions that lead to one test after another. I left from a simple blood pressure check with prescriptions for 4 different tests/procedures. When I brought up a chronic wrist condition - something that actually bothers me on a daily basis - she blew me off suggesting I take Tylenol Arthritis. Not happy.

She isn't a good doctor at all.

Fantastic! She is extremely helpful and accommodating. I've been going to her for 8 years and I have never had an unpleasant experience.
Springfield, IL |
Been seeing her for years. She is very committed to my health - does an excellent job explaining treatment options and never gets frustrated by my endless questions. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a compassionate, dedicated, intelligent health professional.
Chatham, IL |
She was highly recommended by several friends. She seemed thorough initially but as time went by and I had a serious medical crisis, things changed. Her assistants can be rude and condescending. I was always being sent to ER. When I asked to come in, I was told no. I had several medical reports sent to her and she never calls to discuss. Now she's too busy and have to book 6 months in advance. She's out of her league if it's beyond a simple hangnail. Go to ER! What a crock!

Love this woman. She is fantastic. Kind, compassionate, and very, very thorough. I've been a patient for 3 years now and I will never change physicians. She and her staff provide the best service and the quality of care for myself and multiple other family members have never been better.
New York, NY |
She's a really arrogant physician who seems to have problems with men, in general. She routinely practices beyond her scope; is unable to take direction from other specialists in other fields; and she generally unsupportive. Her abilities are fine if you have a runny nose or a cut or need a flue shot, but beyond that, she's not reliable. Her her referral network consists of only physicians in her own medical group, and beyond that, she knows no one and either makes no referrals or poor ones.
