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. Gopal is an intelligent caring physician! she had read my chart before she saw and knew my family history. an outstanding physician. I have spoken her praises to many friends after my visit. a challenging diagnosis I have but she gave me hope!!!!
Dr. Gopal is an excellent medical doctor. She is very knowledgeable, caring, and easy to talk to. Initially I was quite stressed about the diagnosis but she has been reassuring. Lab tests prove that her treatment is working. I thank her deeply.
Dr Gopal had always taken the time to insure I get the best possible treatment changing medication alternatives to find the right combination for my problem. once found I have been mostly pain free for the last 5 years. at the same time Dr Gopal insists on monitoring my condition through regular bloodwork and visits to minimize any side effects of the medication.
Dr. Gopal never seems to care about my feelings regarding my care. She doesn't have any empathy for my symptoms and does not want to discuss treatment options- she wants me to do what she wants and there are no other choices.
Dr. Gopal is very friendly and efficient. Her follow-ups include a thorough exam and advice. She is concerned about overall health as well as her own practice. On my prior visit, her concern had her immediately consulting with my internist and my having had an extra blood test run. The results of that test sent me to the ER and then a hospital stay including a stent procedure - her concern was life saving. I believe she is a very special physician.
Dr. Gopal showed stress from being overbooked. She did not shorten my visit but talked very fast and tried to listen while entering information into on line data base. An obvious distraction. She gave me verbal instructions for 3 followup tests and again quick on instructions and on to next appointment.
She saw me although I was just outside my 15 min window because she said she knows that I always keep my appointments and she was wondering what had happened. Her concern gave me comfort and confidence in her.
