Dr. Boike took time to know my file before meeting me. Once in the room he was patient with my questions and spent time giving thoughtful and knowledgeable answers. It was nice to feel like the first visit wasn't just an opportunity to get to know my illness but also me as a person.
Dr. Boike had a professional manner that was personable. He was able to put medical terms into words that were understandable. He thoroughly explained my condition (which was far more than my local GI doctor did), what causes this illness, gave suggestions for me to improve my health, ran tests to rule out other conditions, and check on liver enzymes, as well as reassure me. I went into Dr. Boike's office, a terrified patient and left, feeling relieved I was being treated by a doctor who was not only highly qualified, but had very good communication skills, and who cared..As for Northwestern Memorial, we have had excellent care and treatment for family members from thyroid cancer, salivary tumors, cardiac issues, to polycystic kidney disease (Lurie's). We trust this medical facility.
