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. Penate found that I lack Iron, the first time that has been noted. As I understand, Iron for men is not the usual. Dr. Penate located the problem and I thank him for that. After taking Iron, I hope that the condition will be improved, say in about six months. Thanks again to my Doctor.
Dr. Penate was friendly, attentive and informative. He worked to establish a good rapport with me immediately and was easy to talk with. I have confidence in his abilities as a doctor. More doctors should take the time and care to listen to patients and develop relationships like Dr. Penate did.
First visit with Dr. Panate. Very confident in his ability and professionalism. Took time to discuss issues about life style and health. Very informative to ensure that I had an understanding of the effects of life style and its relation to health. Hope tp continue to see Dr. Panate for my annual visits.
My doctor is very concerned about my health and the medication I am taking. He is very easy to talk to about my problems. He has empathy to his patients. He is not in a hurry to finish his time with me and makes sure all my questions are answered.
This was my first time for a physical with Dr. Penate. I was so pleased with his attention and his knowledge. It is so refreshing to meet an intern that you feel truly is concerned for your well being. I hope he will be with the practice for a long time! I would certainly ( and have already) reccomend him to my friends and family.
This was my first visit to Dr. Penate. He did not rush our appointment. He spent the right amount of time getting to know me and my medical history. He was very well spoken and explained everything very clearly.
New patient after loosing my Doctor of >20 years. I was referred to Dr Penate and I have great confidence in him, I wasn't sure I could get that again. I look forward to being his patient for a long time.
Dr. Penate was extremely personable and professional. I was particularly impressed with how he escorted an elderly patient ahead of my appointment out of his examining room and into the elevator lobby. He showed extraordinary kindness and genuine concern for her well being. Vety rare and reassuring!
Dr. Penate took a lot of time with me to find out my concerns and address them. He was very approachable. This is was my first visit with Dr. Penate and the best experience I have ever had with a physician.
Dr Penate was extremely generous with his time since this was our first visit and he had no later appointments. he was very thorough, and his explanations were very helpful. he, in fact provided so much information at one point I had to tell him I was becoming confused and he clarified his responses for me. he was very helpful, friendly and patient.
Overall Dr. Penate had my first experience with Northwestern Medical Group amazing. His bedside manner is amazing, his interest in my health and educating me on the options I have are very much appreciated. I am glad to have had chosen him to as my PCP.
Dr. Penate was very pleasant and engaging. He has a good sense humor and comforting manner. He was clear discussing my high blood pressure and the process about switching from the medicine I take for it to a better one. I did not feel rushed at all; that I had his undivided attention. I was seeking a new primary care physician after having been with the same doctor for 25 years. I was not referred to Dr. Penate. I found Dr. Penate on your web-site. On the web-site, it stated that his areas of care included high blood pressure and LGBTQ individuals. I am gay. By my first impressions, I am very optimistic that he'll be a good doctor for me.
Dr Penate was awesome! He was attentive, informative, and non-judgmental. He provided excellent care and advice, given that I hadn't had a primary care doctor or check-up in over 15 years. He was thorough with his exam and had all my blood work and immunizations completed. He also followed up with notes explaining my results and suggestions for improvement. I am very happy to have found a great primary care physician!
Several years ago I moved to the city and needed a doctor, when I called, he was the first available and am thrilled that was the case. He is a fantastic physician. He takes his time, is pleasant and always quick to respond.
Dr Penate took his time to learn about me and my history since I am a new patient of his. He was very thorough and even pointed a better time of day that I should take one of my medications to maximize effectiveness. He has awesome bedside manners and continued open communication with me via my chart even after I left the office. Dr Penate was quick to respond to my inquiry via mychart and questions I had. He also took his time to communicate my lab results to me. I am very happy with the service I received.
Knowledgeable and caring. He spoke in my preferred language, diagnosed through effective testing, and recommended the right treatment ( I felt better within the timeframe he specified). Dr. Penante will be my PCP.
