Dr. Francis has been one to the best things to happen to Evanston Northshore professional beyond her years and a gem. She saved my life by fighting for a test my insurance refused to pay for suffice to say she was right, and it lead to me winning a case against my insurer. Thank you again Dr. Francis a true godsend.

the worst. She cancels and cancels - doesn't care about her patients - very unreliable and rude.

I made the appointment 3 mos. in advance. Drove 3 hrs. back and forth. I left 20 minutes early (road blockage, I was late) I called and asked recept. to relay the message. She didn't. I called when I was closer. When I got there, recept was rude and took so many patients that walked in after me that I stopped counting. I asked her nicely to relay my message, including that I'll be out of the country and wanted only a few minutes. HORRIBLE. RUDE. I won't return.
