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 Zilinski in a warm, caring person. I'm seeing a cardiologist to hopefully prepare for a kidney transplant. I don't have any heart issues. She has just reviewed ECHO's that the transport team requires.
Dr Zielinski was extremely analytical and detailed in her assessment and diagnosis. She had prepared and reviewed my chart and asked detailed questions about symptoms. I felt heard and appreciated her recommendations.
Today was the least "rushed" most thorough discussion with a doctor I've experienced. Dr Zeilinski patiently answered questions and explained next steps. I also appreciate that she documented all discussion for me
I feel that NM Cardiology has vast experience in cases like mine, which I believe better empowers my health care team to gauge my level of risk and to predict the progression of my condition. Dr. Zielinski trusts my ability to assess my own risk, and she treats me like an equal partner in my health care. Furthermore, she's been very accommodating, adapting my treatment to the benefit of my lifestyle as an endurance athlete.
I've had a bad experience with a prior cardiologist at NM hence the lower overall score, but Dr Zelienski was great. She explained all her thinking, gave me options and, most importantly, was respectful to me.
. Dr.Zielinski was very friendly but very thorough in her examination. She listened to my comments and made appropriate remarks in the computer. I will follow her instructions on reducing blood pressure and will follow up in a few weeks as directed.
