Chicago, IL |
I would not recommend this doctor. She is very rude, arrogant, and clearly doesn't care about her patients concerns or why they ultimately ended up in her office in the first place! Doesn't answer any of your questions, just talks over you and down plays any of your concerns. She's there for a pay check, nothing more!

I love my Doctors at adovacte but she is the exception. Terrible hard to get ahold of & rude took 3 days to get her or her staff to renew my Humira prescription I would not recommend her I would stay away I’m 62 yrs old she talked down to me for just trying to get someone to renew my prescription. I’ve changed to another Dr. WORST DOCTOR I HAVE EVER DELT WITH !!!

This doctor was condescending, arrogant, and shared my name with a friend of hers! She minimized all my concerns, missed a problem, when I confronted her about it she told me I wasn't having that problem, then told me she found evidence of that same problem during a procedure, and told me to follow up in a YEAR with no treatment in the meantime for the problem. I will never see this doctor again.

You are much better staying away from this doctor!

The worst doctor I have ever met! This person should NOT practice medicine. I do not know what is wrong with her but she made me feel so bad.
Chicago, IL |
Rude doctor with no compassion. Complains about everything nonstop. If there were negative stars I would use that. She does not deserve even one star!
Chicago, IL |
Most arrogant, irritating doctor I have ever seen! All my doctors are Advocate doctors and I am very happy with all. She is definitely an exception. I will never go to her again.
I found her to be terribly condescending and rude. She talked over me and her answer to my complaints was to just prescribe me a $2,000 medication and to "come back in three months". I would never trust her with my health.

Dr. Frankel had a very arrogant demeanor, did not follow proper hospital protocol for my medical procedure, and she did not respond to repeated requests to answer medical questions I had regarding my test results.
