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.
Even though they were behind, the doctor didn't feel rushed and took her time with me. She did use a lot of medical words I didn't understand for her assistant to enter into the computer. I wish she would've explained what she meant by that verses me trying to decide what I should ask and what wasn't important for me to be able to define.
I was running late 15-20 mins for my appt and called the clinic 45 mins before my appt to let them know. I live an hour from NM and have been coming here for decades. The Derm clinic and Dr. Colavincecenzo were understanding and accommodating! I appreciate it and can't thank them enough!
Care--time, expertise, thoroughness, concern--exceeded my hopes. It was worth the months of waiting and the two-hour commute to see her. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Colavincenzo. Personally, it was also amazing to be visited by an all female team for a female "issue."
I continue to recommend Dr. Colavincenzo to my friends and colleagues because of her adept, active listening and thoroughness. She's knowledgeable and current, which helps when trying to decide between treatment options. I'm so glad I found her--and her team.
Dr Colavincenzo gave thorough explanations of conditions and possible treatments; she left the decision to me and discussed it in detail; she was informative and reassuring. I appreciated that she had a transcriber so that she could fully engage in the consultation.
Dr Colavincenzo is extremely thorough explaining everything I asked or discussed with her. she never once made me feel that my questions were irrelevant or unimportant. to the contrary she validated many of my own explorations to remedy my hair loss problem. She was the mostcomprehensive in her approach raising questions that I may nothave thought of. she is one of my favorite doctors and would recommend her highly to anyone with hair loss.
Dr. Marie is very good - she also seems in a hurry. She asks if I have questions, but doesn't pause to give time for me to answer. She is very thorough and seemed to listen. I just felt very rushed and thought of a question just after she left the room.
