At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
Dr. Ravenna is why I recommend northwestern medicine to people. Dr. Ravenna makes you feel like you're part of your own healthcare team rather than someone whose decisions are being made for them. He is a phenomenal doctor and even though I have moved farther away and have great doctors nearby, I continue to go to your office because of dr. Ravenna.
I felt safe at your office with the covid procedures you've put in place and appreciated being able to do my pre check-in items and pay online. Dr. Ravenna is the main reason for the 10 score though. He is the best doctor I have ever had and I feel heard when I speak with him. My experiences and thoughts are taken into consideration when making healthcare considerations. He is respectful, kind, compassionate, intelligent, thoughtful and just honestly fantastic at his job. He is who a doctor should be.
Dr. Ravenna is a brilliant diagnostician and a caring person. He follows up on my medical condition, my medicine, tracks and monitors my progress with my gastroenterologist and potential diagnosis of IBS, and reviews the medicine that I am on so there are no undesirable interactions. As my primary physician, he noted the procedures that I was undergoing with Dr. Soudagar, the gastroenterologist at Lake Forest Hospital, who was trying to identify and treat the cause of my stomach pain"cramping. Dr. Ravenna called and asked me to schedule and appointment with him to discuss the status of these tests. Dr. Ravenna, in a brilliant move, prescribed an anti-depressant that addressed and relieved my bowel pain symptoms. After 5+ months of suffering, I finally have relief.
Of the 4 doctors I have worked with at Northwestern, Dr. Ravenna and only one other NW Med physician know how to communicate with their patients. I am not a umber\" when meeting with Dr. Ravenna. My symptoms and my questions are NOT an inconvenience preventing him from seeing other patients. Dr. Ravenna has mastered the professional communication skills that all physicians should have."
He's very knowledgeable in all areas. A very good listener. Asks a lot of questions which makes me believe hes genuinely interested in my health. Hes easy to talk to so your not uncomfortable at all. I would recommend him to anyone.
He is the nicest caring doctor I have ever been to and I've been to quite a few I get excited to go see him and as we all know nobody wanna go to the doctor he lift my spirit just an amazing human being
He listens and seems to care about all aspects of my well being. I appreciate the time and care given to me during my appointment. I never feel rushed, but rather that every issue is given the attention it needs.
Dr. Ravenna has been my PCP for a number of years. He is knowledgeable he explains things so that I may understand them who presents options of treatment is compassionate to my fears in my needs and I put my total trust in his care
Dr. Ravenna has been my primary physician for years now. His style makes me very comfortable and I'm not intimidated to ask questions. He's great at laying out options and doesn't talk in absolutes, which allows me to make final decisions in my care.
Dr. Ravina is an excellent doctor that is very responsive to questions over MyChary, and always takes tile to listen to me when I see him. Other doctors that I have had in the past rush you in and out like cattle without ever really listening and communicating. I have strong confidence that he knows what he is talking about and always has my best interest in mind. Plus, he is a nice guy who is really easy on the eyes.
Just had one of the best, most validating interactions with a doctor I've ever had. I've been seeing Dr Ravenna for two years and he's always been supportive, helpful, and non judgmental in how he provides care. He really listens first and always asks how he can best help and support. As a newly (and excited and anxious) pregnant woman, I couldn't have asked for a better appointment today.
I can't express how comfortable he makes me feel to open up and discuss my concerns. He makes me feel he has all the time I need to discuss my concerns, when I can see there's so much going on. I feel he genuinely cares and provides the medical assistance I need.
Paul is a very charismatic and down to earth doctor. He is very warm and inviting, not judgmental of information I share. He makes sure I understand everything I need to know but also keeps things brief and to the point.
