Patient Comments (1)
Chicago, IL |
I think she is a competent doctor, but her office is very disorganized and it's extremely difficult to get in touch with her. If you are experiencing a problem that needs rather immediate attention, you are often at the mercy of her nurse, and it usually takes (at best) a few days or (at worst) a couple weeks to get back to you. Patient care doesn't seem to be a top priority for Dr. Gonsalves.
