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. Colavincenzo really took her time, explaining her differential diagnoses and thought process behind the recommended approach. I appreciate her honesty in an uncertain diagnosis. And she clearly uses evidence-based guidelines in making recommendations. I would recommend her to anyone!
She is very personable. She doesn't make the appointment feel rushed. she takes her time to explain her logic and reasoning and answer questions. She's willing to listen to what a patient has to say and explore possibilities and treatments with them even if they aren't directly in line with her initial recommendation. She is an excellent doctor.
I must admit that I was a bit annoyed that I had to wait 45 minutes to see the dock, but once I got in to the examining room it was well worth the wait. Dr. Colavincenzo spent almost an hour with me and made me feel like I was the only patient she had all day. What a caring physician!
She projects a sense of knowledge, confidence, and poise with an easy approach. She communicates concern, listens to me, provides thorough explanations of reasons, processes, techniques, and methods. She and her team are very communicative, knowledgeable, and patient.
I waited several months to be able to see Dr.Colavincenzo and within 5 minutes of meeting her, it was certainly worth the wait. She is very thorough, provides excellent information in language a patient can understand and then provides plans of how to help fix your problem. She is excellent and I felt comfortable that she would be able assist with my problem!
Dr. Colavincenzo is just amazing. My condition is not that serious nor life threatening, but she took the time to discuss all treatment options with me in depth. It gave me comfort to see her dedication to my case and treatment.
I was very satisfied with Dr. C - she answered all my questions, gave good advice and was nice. Negative is I waited over one hour before seeing her. I would warn anyone about potential wait times if I recommended NW Derm.
Maria C. was very knowledgeable and explained everything in detail to me concerning my options. Eventhough there were a lot of patients she took time with me and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed.
Incredibly concerned about patient's issues and ensures all concerns addressed with patient's involvement; great "bedside manner" takes time to besure patient understands all options available for treatment
I enjoy working with her as her demeanor and personality mesh well with mine, and she answers my questions directly. .However, it seems her time with patients is limited... most of my appointment is spent with a resident or just waiting for Dr. Colavincenzo; my 8:30 appt didn't end until around 10am, and mostly she just focused on 'recapped concerns' discussed with the resident!
Dr. Colavincenzo is great! She really makes me feel listened to and when she's with me she's focused on me. She explains things to me clearly and makes me feel like I am in good hands. I've had a hard time finding a dermatologist I really like and trust, and I've finally found that with her!
