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.
She explained everything so I could understand and answered all my questions. She took her time and didn't make me feel like she needed too get to the next patient. Very informative addressing my issues.
She explains things well, particularly in the difference between what needs to be watched, what needs to be treated and what is cosmetic. I appreciate how the visit feels like a collaboration while I still feel confident in her experience and expertise.
She is the best doctor I've ever met in my life. She is so knowledgeable, confident, strong, approachable, so cool, an expert, efficient, and charismatic. An excellent communicator. I'm usually terrified of going to the doctor and I can't wait until my follow up. I have such confidence in her and I just met her. I'm making an appointment for my husband shortly.
I really like Dr Maria Colavinzo. She's super personable and informative and doesn't make you feel rushed. She answers all your questions and really listens to what you have to say. She gives information in a clear and easy to understand manner. Even when her analysis of the situation isnt necessarily in agreement or even conflicts with the patient's understanding she is still able to communicate in a way that conveys the information effectively and in a way that doesn't make you feel attacked, ignorant, judged, or just outright dismissed. Which unfortunately can be a problem with a lot of doctors. This as well as her expertise and knowledge is why I value her so much as a doctor and continue to see her.
I thought Dr. Colavincenzo was very knowledgeable rooted in data and science. She was also compassionate and empathetic. She did a great job explaining options potential outcomes etc. My only slight piece of feedback was that I had a list of questions to ask and she spoke most of the time. (Which I thought was very good information so I appreciated that.) But at the end she said ok I will get your paperwork and I said I actually have a few questions. She was of course receptive to them but I felt a little pressured to cut them short because she had already spent so much time with me. It is hard and a balancing act of course in getting information especially about a topic as complex as hair loss. Overall I highly recommend her. It was just a small piece of feedback.
Dr. Colavincenzo has always been exceptionally helpful and informative. In addition to receiving critical medical care, I always seem to leave her office, knowing that the best clinically viable course of action will be taken toward controlling my condition. Her general attitude of thoroughly discussing all the available options (pros and cons associated with each option) is just fantastic. I truly enjoy learning a lot from her.
Beyond her great care and knowledge, Dr. Colavincenzo answers all of your questions thoroughly and to the best of her ability. She never makes you feel rushed or if your questions and concerns are not valid.
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!
