in New Lenox, IL |
I have been seeing Dr. Gustafson for 6 years now during my cancer treatment. My appointments are always on time and she is very thorough. She spends whatever time is necessary to explain my condition and options of treatment. She treats me as a whole person, not just my disease. She has responded in a timely manner if I leave phone messages. I am totally confident in the care and treatment she has given me over the years.

She recently treated my husband at Silver Cross Hospital. I can't say enough good things about her !!
in New Lenox, IL |
I found Dr. gustafson to be compassionate and thorough. She spent more time woth me than any doctor I have previously seen and never made me feel inferior or rushed. She answered every question, relieved my anxiety, and even made me laugh. While I hope I dont have to see her again, I won't have to search for someone else if it becomes necessary.
