Ratings and Reviews
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.
It was my first time meeting Dr. Giangreco. He was very friendly and timely from the start. He focused on my concerns when I was talking and I could tell that he reviewed my blood results and tests from my primary care doctor before our meeting. He gave an honest opinion and followed up his opinion with some additional tests. One of the tests revealed a problem with my thyroid in terms of my TSO levels being too high. He went on to explain in his notes that this could be the cause of the symptoms I have been experiencing. I was looking for answers and a possible treatment and I think he provided the answer portion of my goal - I will work with my primary doctor in terms of treatment.
I was very pleased with the staff when I arrived and when I left - very pleasant and willing to help. I was taken back to the exam room right on time, which is critical during covid since I didn't want to wait long in the waiting room. My interaction with Dr. Giangreco was very positive since he listened to my concerns and ordered tests that revealed a possible cause for my symptoms. It was nice having my blood drawn at the office as opposed to having to go to an outside lab. Nurse Elizabeth responded quickly to the question I submitted via the portal and called me back to discuss my lab results. Overall, my experience was extremely positive and I will definitely let my primary card doctor know since she is the one who referred me to Dr. Giangreco. I will refer other family and friends as well if they need a rheumatologist. Thank you.
I waited months and months for an appointment. Due to possible lupus. Just to be seen by him for 5 min. Told me my bloodwork didn't matter and because I didn't have sores on my face and my hands weren't swollen and red that there is no diagnosis. How do you come to conclusion that fast? I have sore itchy scalp. Bad pain in my knee hip back neck. I have horrible brain fog. I'm exhausted all the time. No one wants to be diagnosed with an illness but also no one wants to be brushed off that quickly. He wasn't taking me seriously. Told me to stretch my hip. That it's bursitis. How do you diagnose it like that. No examine no X-ray or mri. He shouldn't get paid. Very upset and frustrated. This was all in 5 min visit.
Dr. Giangreco is the most kind, caring, and compassionate physician there is. He ALWAYS takes the time to listen to all your concerns, addresses them appropriately, never makes you feel rushed, and is always available to you via the phone if you have any questions or problems he truly is the best! I would refer him to anyone looking for exceptional care.
When you call with questions or concerns they are always addressed in a very timely and professional manner. The employees are always very helpful and pleasant to speak with I would highly recommend Northwestern Rheumatology to anyone.
I felt my doctor was educated and had great a manner about him. However, he did not come in with my chart and he indicated something that was incorrect to me. Because it was clearly in my original lab results from my primary. I told him there was a third one, he said no there was only two. One of the results was clearly abnormal. That is the one I was concerned about. The levels were out of range by a significant amount. And that is the one he was not talking about. He said there were only two and they can produce false positives. However, after I was crying and was not understanding, he did order another round of tests. Not only was he only referring to two tests that were likely to produce a false positive, I felt extremely rushed because I was 10 minutes late. I had called to let them know because I had turned the wrong way on a very busy road. The nurse came out right away waiting for me. The lady checking me in was doing the best she could. And the lady next to her said it will have to wait they need to take her now. The nurse checking my blood pressure and asking the required questions told me that this particular doctor does not like to be behind. I believe she said this because I kept apologizing. I do not like the concept of a doctor behind on his schedule because of me however there was no one else in the waiting room. So as the doctor was going over my results and explaining to me why he did not believe I had any sort of autoimmune, I did not feel like I had time to pull my results to show him there were 3 markers, not 2. He did not make me feel rushed. I was already anxious and feeling awful because of my check-in process and what the nurse told me.
He is extremely punctual, I've never had to wait for an appointment. He spends more than enough time with me to make me feel like he's paying attention to my complaints and symptoms, shows he truly cares. Always comes in to the room seeming to have prepared himself with my history.
Dr Giangreco is the best! He explains things in layman's terms. He answers all of my questions, sometimes before I even ask them. He always asks if I have questions for him. I never feel rushed during an appointment.
Strictly based on the employees behind the front desk, drs assistant Kelly and Dr Giangreco I give a 10. As far as treatments I can't rate that yet because I haven't started but I am sure it will be a 10.
My visit was short but thorough. We discussed my condition and he recommended I consider physical therapy. Dr. G. wanted me to have a blood test, I received a call the next day from his office with the results.
I liked the cleanliness of the office and the staff seemed to care. I would have liked more input on what Dr thinks of all the diagnosis I when given mr blood test results I feel a summary with his notes would have helped
Dr. Giangreco was willing to listen to me and check out my joints. I had brought my previous records to the office and he indicated he had reviewed them. I left the office feeling I had found someone that I could trust in the future.
I felt my RA had pretty much gone into remission and that is fine with me. I do still have arthritis pain but it is not going to keep me down. I was told to keep exercising and stay active which is what I intend to do.
Dr. G is an outstanding practitioner. He always takes his time to ensure a thorough examination. It never feels rushed. He makes sure to answer all questions thoroughly and he checks for understanding on my part.
I have been with Dr. David since the beginning of my RA which was since 2018 and I was giving an amazing treatment Dr David gives you the time for every appointment never feels like he is rushing to see you always open to give you time to answer all your questions. Definitely I will stay with him for as long as I can.
Dr. Giangreco is wonderful! If I had only known about him a year ago. He is patient, kind and listens and best does not make you feel like he is in a rush or half listens while punching a computer like most docs.
He isn't the most friendly or personable man. I went in with severe joint and bone damage from OA. He says there's nothing he can do but to keep my appointments in the future. I was appalled! I missed an appointment in December because my husband had a heart attack the day before and lost sight of it. I didn't get a call to reschedule. Just a nasty letter in the mail. I then called to reschedule. It was cancelled due to the covid-19 pandemic and rescheduled. I was told in May the closest date available was in September! I even told the scheduler how much pain I was in. I was told the next available day was September 3rd. I took it. Then to be told as if I purposefully neglected to see him to keep my appointments! It made me feel like a paycheck not a patient with legitimate reasons for not being there in a reasonable time period. Things were beyond my control and when I did get there nothing was able to be done for me! Just stay on course of meds, do exercise and see you in a year! Pathetic way to treat someone with severe symptoms and pain which wakes her up 3 to 4 times a night.
Dr. Giangreco is warm and very pleasant always, while giving the most professional advice. Since seeing Dr. Giangreco for osteoarthritis, my condition has improved and I have full range of my joints. We are moving out of state and I will miss his smiling (albeit masked right now) face.
I already have recommended him to a neighbor. He listens, is responsive and was highly recommended by one of his distinguished professors. It is important to me that I have a doctor who is both empathetic and abreast of current methodology.
Dr. Giangreco has great bedside manners. This is always the first thing I look for in a doctor. Someone who takes their time to explain medical issues goes a long way. He compassionate about the health of his clients and passionate about his profession. Patients can't ask for more from this guy.
Everyone in the office was so very nice and accommodating. Dr Giangreco was very kind and compassionate. He was knowledgeable and did all he could to help me. I very much appreciate everyone in the office.
Dr. Giangreco is kind, caring and thorough. He was especially effective in treating my painful arthritis. I was totally incapacitated with pain and his treatment relieved that pain and gave me back a normal life. I can even play the piano again! Thank you Dr. G.
Just a bit impersonal and I dont always think he understands the shame and pain of gnarled fingers and hands. Doesnt stick around too often to ask if I have any questions or additional concerns. I realize, however, that I am not his only old lady patient with RA.
