The appt was set for 4:40 and the staff told me it would be a 20 minute appt. Didn't get a call until 90 minutes later and I was back at work. Tried to follow up but there's no way to reach the doctor directly. They told me afterwards that the doctor will call within a one hour window which was clear on the email or portal.

I love my primary care doctor and will follow her wherever she goes but northwestern is my least favorite hospital system. I feel like a number that you're moving through the system and it's not personal at all. I have to jump through hoops to talk to a medical professional vs calling the office and getting to talk to a nurse right away. The lab department was a half Hour wait.
