My visit with Dr. Xu was great. Everything about check in and the visit itself was efficient, safe and patient-centered. Only reason I didn't give it a 10 was the long wait time on the phone when I was scheduling. A chronic problem at Northwestern, surely this can be improved!

So nice to be spoiled, have appointments lined up and more importantly on time. That part is great. My I my feedback that I thought was odd was the front desk guy couldn't schedule my next appointment and had to call the scheduling person. With COVID just thought it was odd that they are touching each other's computers. Seems like front desk person should be able to do it all, but that's just my opinion.

The Dr's are BUSY.... and even with that, they are always so nice, explain what they find and are thorough. Skin cancer is scary, so it's obviously a relief to have access to such competent physicians. This was my first time with Dr. Xu and he was awesome (I usually see Dr. Choi and she's amazing as well).
