I've seen a lot of docs but my experience with her has been one of the worst. Her office is nearly impossible to get a hold of (you always have to leave a voicemail and it often takes WEEKS to hear back from a nurse), and the exam was done in a very cluttered office that didn't feel clean. Her suggestions for my ongoing care weren't useful, and half the appointment was spent watching her read my records I had sent over a week in advance.

This was a terrible experience. She was 2 hours late for my first appointment, took a call when I sat down and told the caller that she'd be wrapping up in 5 minutes. She said that she didn't have my labs - I asked her nurse before I walked in and she said that they had received them from my physician. On my second appointment, she told me that my labs (that she ran were fine), another physician read them and told me that they weren't. Don't waste your time going to her.

Easily one of the best endocrinologists in the city or suburbs. Was referred to me over 3 years ago by one of the top neurologists at Northwester Medical Center and have been seeing her since. Have never met a more caring and dedicated doctor! Extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy (even compared to Mayo Clinic whom I visited and were on the same page with her on a very complex issue). Highly recommend!
