Ratings and Reviews
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.
I have never had a doctor like Dr Gierut before. She listen to you she follow up on your test. I feel like she really care about me getting well. She gives me hope when all my hope was lost for so many years. I'm finally getting answers after 19 years of waiting. Excellent doctor. I feel so lucky to have founded her.
Dr Gierut's communication skills and personal approach is most appreciated by this patient, and the Doctor is extremely knowledgeable in her particular discipline.I would also like to comment on both the courtesy and professionalism of the supporting staff, very nice indeed.
NM is a leader in Autoimmune disorders. Drs and staff are responsive to their patients. I feel confident that I am well taken care of and a part of the decision making process when it come to managing my RA.
She is the most professional and listens to all of your concerns. She explains the situation and makes sure that you understand. She takes one problem at a time and works very hard to find an accurate diagnosis. She genuinely cares about the patient and you feel she is going to get the answers and the diagnosis the patient has been looking to get for a long time. She listens and answers all of your questions. She is excellent.
Over the past six years, NM Rheumatology has provided excellent care. I hesitate to think of what my health might otherwise be if not for the focus and care taken, especially early on in identifying my condition.
Obviously very intelligent and up to date in her knowledge of current treatments. She makes excellent eye contact, is approachable, upbeat, practical and pleasant. We are still getting to know each other but I feel she appreciates me and trusts me to make good judgments on my care with her advice regarding my individual situation. (Also see above comments.) I greatly value her. I hope you share these comments with her too.
Organized and well run office staffed by dedicated professional support staff. Phenomenal physician Dr. Geirit. She comes into the room well versed in my case and knowing me as an individual. Her suggestions, note, not demands, are tailored to improve my status.
Quality of care, training of staff and the depth of knowledge of NW doctors. Also, my insurance declined the medicine my rheumatologist recommended for my condition. Thanks to NW pharmacy, my health insurance ended up approving my prescription.
Dr Gierut is an extremely professional, passionate & dedicated doctor. She's accommodating to my needs & makes sure I'm comfortable & all my needs are met. Dr Gierut has a big heart. She takes good care of me more than I would for myself.
Dr. Geirut is not only extremely knowledgeable, she is kind and compassionate as well. I never feel rushed in an appt. I feel that she hears me and has my needs and best interests in mind with her treatment. I'm so glad I found her. The staff team are all very helpful and kind as well.
Dr. Gierut really took the time to listen to me, and it was clear she cared about what I had to say. I always left my previous rheumatologist feeling discouraged, but after switching over to Dr. Gierut, I have felt more supported!
I feel there is a lack of support to patients and it's more just here are some medications to try, work on this and I'll see you in 4 months. Being diagnosed with a autoimmune issue at any age is difficult to deal with and no matter what level or profession your at should be met with care and compassion. Because it's something that is new to the patient and can be quite difficult to deal with.
She listens. She cares. I have so many problems that other doctors find me to be too much. I often times cry after leaving doctor offices. .She doesn't make me cry. She doesn't make me feel less of a person. She doesn't belittle me like so many other doctors have. .I really appreciate her and the care she provides for me.
The ease of scheduling is good but top scores are because Dr Gierut's approach and manner come across as very caring and sincere. She's clearly very knowledgeable and takes the time to discuss things in an unhurried fashion, setting patients at ease. I feel like I'm talking with a family member.
Easy to schedule appointment. Minimal waiting to see my doctor...Dr. Gierut spent time during my visit to check my condition, answer my questions and explain changes in medication frequency and suggested activity changes to help keep me flexible.
I'm extremely pleased with Dr. Gierut. She certainly is very knowledgeable!.Her personality is refreshing! She listens & is very down to earth!! I've dealt with many doctors over the years, & she rates at the very top!!
Dr. Gierut spends the time needed to review my concerns and make sure that I am comfortable with proposed treatment...She is an excellent physician and I am very fortunate to have her on my medical team.
I've been to several doctors and I have to say Dr Gierut is by far the best. She is a great listener and actually spends time with you. She's more than willing to answer any questions without judgement, truly a blessing in my life.
Dr. Gierut was fantastic. She listened to my issues and clearly explained things to me. She also took the time to put things in writing so I wasnt overwhelmed and could remember what she told me to do next.
Dr pays attention to my feedback and is always looking for a better way or an improvement to current therapy. She is innovative and caring. She explains things well so I can understand RA and contribute to my own care.
Dr. Gierut is a breath of fresh air. It's wonderful to meet a doctor who is actually practicing medicine. She takes the time to listen, understand her patients, and work with you in your treatment. She doesn't try to just write a script and pass you off if it doesn't work. I was passed around between doctors for years and she is the best doctor I've ever worked with. Northwestern you need to hire more doctors like her!!!!! Every doctor should aspire to be more like her.
Love all the staff in Rheumatology dept., especially Dr Gierut! Dr Dr Gierut always takes her time with her patients, follows up with concerns or questions whether ots in person or via mychart. I have had several Rheumatologist in my life and she is one of the best!
Knowledgeable doctor but has a distant demeanor ... I would recommend that she balance any discouraging diagnosis information with any positive information she can find (e.g., success stories) that will encourage the patient and give him/her hope. Research shows that how information is delivered/relayed by a doctor is as or more important as the information itself in terms of a patient's healing capability.
She was great and so was the lab tech who drew my blood. Dr. Gierut listened to me and seemed to care. Together, the two gave me hope. The sweet and positive phlebotomist told me not to worry because they will take my pain away. She was amazing!! I arrived sad and hopeless (about a life of incurable pain ahead of me) and left with a hopeful grin on my face. I'm so glad I found Dr. G!! Thank you!!!
Dr gierut is very professional, very knowledgeable and a nice person. Her manner is very caring and thoughtful. Her staff was efficient and friendly. The lobotomist was very efficient and was so sweet. She made me laugh. I actually didn't mind my eleven vials of blood being extracted.
Dr Guerit is a great physician! She is always friendly and knowledgeable. She truly listens to your concerns and explains all treatment options thoroughly. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing a rheumatologist.
NM Rheumatology has a reputation for excellence. I have not been dissapointed. Dr. Gierut is very knowledgeable. She includes me in the decision process and is very frank on the pros and cons of any changes to treatment. I trust Dr Gierut to be honest and forthright concerning my treatment.
Dr. Gierut is very personable and pleasant. She is very knowledgeable and answers all my questions without rushing me through the visit. I highly recommend her and her office staff are very friendly and pleasant.
