Dr. Flicker is an amazing GI doctor. Was very attentive to my problem. And suggested few different approaches.. Office waiting room gets crowded sometimes. This and scheduling has nothing to do with Dr. Flicker professionalism. Thank you Dr. Flicker.

Was referred here for tests. Tests were taken and it's been months of playing phone tag with the front office woman trying to obtain the results. Office Hours are stated as Weds 1-4 & Thursday 9-5 however no one ever answers during those hours. No other options for obtaining test results have been offered. Recurrence of symptoms that brought me to need the test has happened will be switching away from Advocate ASAP.

The process of scheduling appointments in this office is beyond ridiculous and when I was finally able to get through schedule an appointment, I received a message several weeks later notifying me that the doctor would not be available on the date upon which my appointment had been scheduled. I have tried several times to reach someone to try and reschedule, but apparently Dr. Flicker's office in Chicago is in a different time zone than my home in Chicago.

Doogie Houser with an attitude. The first thing he said was not, What can I help you with? Instead it was a plaintive, bewildered Why are you here? My mom died of colon cancer at a young age, and every time I have a colonoscopy, polyps are found. My previous guy retired. I've been told to get a colonoscopy every 3 years. That's why I'm here. This seemed baffling to him.
