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. Garelik & the resident that saw me (I forgot her name I'm sorry) were both very thorough & explained my treatment very clearly. I was seen on time, which I appreciate. Everyone, from the nurse with the cool pink in her hair & the front desk, was very friendly.
Dr. Garelik is compassionate and thorough. Her recommendations for treatment have brought immediate good results. The office appears to run smoothly, and although I had a late in the day appointment time, I was seen just five minutes after my scheduled time.
The reception crew were well-prepared both with the routine information questions and with the COVID-19 protocols. Dr. Garelik and her assistants gave me a thorough examination and recommended treatments that, so far, (1 week out) are working well.The visit summary paperwork was easy to understand, and I liked that the instructions gave many alternative OTC treatments their brand names, so I could easily remember them. I follow u p with her in 2 months.
Actually, once she stopped acting so cheerful as if I were a child... she was absolutely perfect! I would recommend that the doctors in your group practice a balance between friendly and baby talk. She really was great, though and so was her colleague, Dr Anderson.
Too rushed, too many people (doctors and patients), front desk too slow. Doctor was 15 minutes late, seemed in a hurry, but was very nice, professional, perhaps somewhat inexperienced. Seems like a factory there in a very intimate situation.
She was professional attentive and meticulous. However she was behind schedule but her manners and professionalism outweighed her being a little behind for my appointment. I would definitely recommend her and return myself!!!
She was easy to talk to regarding my questions in detail. Based on her inspection, and my melanoma status, recommended I follow up w" Dr Zhou, regarding white lessions which she prescribed ointment for next 90 days to see if they get smaller.
This was my first visit. The staff was extremely caring and friendly. They made my experience very comfortable and kept me informed about every step of my procedure. The doctor is excellent....she explained the steps she would take and what I should expect. My appointment was on time and the procedure was completed in a timely manner. I highly recommend NM!
Dr. Jessica Garelik was very attentive, a good listener, patient, and kept asking if she was hurting during a minor procedure. Plus her resume shows she is knowledgeable. She is an asset to your organization.
I knew before I arrived that my finger would require a surgical dermatologist, as the previous Dr had told me such. However, I wasted an entire month for the appointment only to be told that I would have to make another appointment with the surgical dermatologist, requiring me to make yet another 3 weeks. Everyone has been very kind, but I not happy that I'm being shuffled around.
Very long wait. I was told Dr. Garelik was the only dermatologist in the office the day of my visit. Other than that, the front desk staff are wonderful, nice, and helpful, and Dr. Garelik is an excellent physician with great patient manner.
Dr Garelik, was very pleasant and listen to my concerns.very thorough with my examination. She gave clear and concise instructions. And made recommendations for a return visit. I really liked her. I hope she stays with NWMH . I will continue to request her
She was very thorough with her exam . She made me feel really comfortable that she was trying to get to know me and seemed interested in me as a person . My wait in the room was no more than 5 min . Every one introduced themselves . It was a very pleasant experience .
This is my 1st in person appointment. I met Dr. Garelik via my 1st appointment vis Telehealth almost a month ago. I gave her a 10 rating due to get amicable bed side manner, thoroughness of explanation, her willingness to help me & for genuinely hearing me.
I loved Dr. Garelik. Wonderful and very thorough. General dermatology dept is usually great with being on-time and even if there are delays, they are minor. But the specialty dermatology dept around the corner is chronically behind. When I was at my gen dermatology appt, a man had been waiting 2 hours for specialty. I've had similar experiences and it definitely makes me think twice before I book appts. But gen dermatology is wonderful and Dr. Garelik is great!
She was very professional and patient. She did a thorough examination. I have had annual skin examinations at Northwestern for many years. While I don't have any issues with the other physicians in prior years (except sometimes they felt so rushed), I felt most comfortable with Dr. Garelik's exam and especially with the amount of time and care she spent. I would most highly recommend her.
It is the first time I visited Dr. Garelik because Dr. Laumann retired. I found her to be professional, friendly, completely knowledgeable in her field and a wonderful bedside manner. She was very thorough and answered every question. She is my new dermatologist!
This was my first time seeing Dr Garelick & I really appreciate how thorough she was in explaining everything to me, & also the care she took to maintain some privacy for me during my skin cancer screening. I always dread this exam because I'm the last I have felt very vulnerable being so uncovered, especially if there was an intern or Mrs student in the room too. She used a 2nd gown to keep parts of my body that weren't being examined covered & I really appreciated that!..The wait time was much better than in years past, but still 30minutes past my scheduled time. The MA apologized for the delay & was very pleasant & professional about it though. I appreciate that she acknowledged the delay.
I felt very safe with all the added COVID precautions. Everyone I interacted with was very friendly and professional. Dr Garelik was very attentive in answering all my questions and making sure I felt comfortable during my exam.
Dr Garelik discussed my health in detail, presented me with options, and helped guide my decision. She also explained all the treatment to me ahead of time..Very professional & thorough..Did not feel rushed.
First time visit with this doctor...she asked questions about my condition, listened and was clear in information she offered. I had a biopsy and she explained how it was going to go before and during procedure. Great experience!
Great experience! Quick, non-stressful visit, very clean office, & polite staff. Doctor Garelik was phenomenal in both her professional knowledge and her bedside manner. Very pleased with my visit today!
Dr. Garelik is very attentive to the patient. She is also a very competent dermatologist. She answered all my questions without rushing. Before the procedure Dr. Garelik explained what would happen during that procedure. I felt very much confident in.Doctor's skills.
Dr. Garelik was personable to chat with and extremely thorough with the skin exam. I needed to have several moles removed and she took me through my options and procedures with empathy and understanding. ..I have already recommended her to several of my friends and colleagues.
