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.
This is my first time seeing Dr. Later because Dr. Ashaye was on family leave. I came away from the appointment feeling relieved and very well taken care of. With Dr. Later's recommendations, I'm excited to try new drug therapies with less side effects.
I have seen both Dr. Ashaye and Dr. Later. Both physicians are easy to relate to and have actively listened to my concerns before recommending a treatment plan. I come away knowing I was an active participant in my care. I intend to stay with the group going forward. I'm well taken care of. I believe many of their patients feel the same way as there is a bit of a wait to get in to see them.
First meeting as mentioned above. I was happy with his explanation and questions of everything. He explained what approach we are going to take and made sure I understood. Could go higher based on follow up visits etc.
Relatable and comprehensive are the words I think of in describing Dr. Later. He made me feel at ease from the start and did a great job explaining why he was doing what he was doing and was equally good with explaining the implications of the history I had given to him.
I'm truly undecided. Dr. Later was helpful but was not able to address my case due to lack of information from MRI results of a previous brain surgery at Northwestern Hospital successfully performed by Dr. Leonard J. Cerullo 33 years earlier to drain the subarachnoid cyst which was causing vertigo, headaches and nasal congestion. The original MRI couldn't be located and therefore Dr. Later couldn't determine whether my subarachnoid cyst has enlarged and is causing any of the current symptoms I'm experiencing.
It was my first mtg. W dr. later. he was warm & welcoming. explained in detail the differences between my current mri & one taken in 2017.surprisinly he said what i had was common. He explained why i was experiencing what i was feeling..also, he mentioned sensations that i may experience lo & behold i also had those which really made me nervous. He ended consult with see u in 2 yrs. How great is that?!!
Dr Later doesn't listen to my concerns and always makes me out to be lying or incorrect on how I feel. He said me having reactions to the medications was in my head. He doesn't seem to care to truly listen to me so he can help me. I leave there every time feeling very upset and discouraged. I get daily migraines and they have gotten much worse and I need a doctor that cares
Best care. Your hospital has turn us into numbers. Made your Dr.'s more worried about the metrics you out put on them rather than care for patients. Dr. Later, cares, listens and talks with you in terms we can understand. As a team discuss next steps. Your hospital has put $ signs on us. Not our care.
Everyone was friendly and helpful. Kept me up to date while waiting for my appointment. They were running behind, everyone apologizing etc. Knowing the wonderful care they give I assume a patient needed extra care which lead the delay. When I've need extra care there always there. So it was my turn to be patient so they could take care of the person before me. Never an issue. Top care my Dr. Later and his team.
I was shocked to have a Dr. come into an appointment with his mask under his nose. And that's where it stayed throughout my testing.I am beyond disappointed that a Doctor would behave so irresponsibly.
Quick, efficient service combined with informed, quality care. I felt the doctor helped me understand the reasons behind my care, taking his time to make sure I was on the same page and that I agreed with our treatment plan. Excellent, quality care that was forward-looking and collaborative with my other care providers. I would definitely recommend your service to others.
Dr later always makes sure to do everything he can to help his patients. Out of the 20 plus doctors I've delt with over the past 2 years, for various reasons, dr Later is the kindest, most knowledgeable, and hands down the most effective dr I've seen.
Dr. Paul Later came to see me already prepared (it was my first visit). He was familiar with my issues. When I mentioned that I had bad experience to do EGM test , he said he will be very careful , he explained to me every step, he took time to answer all my concerns and carefully performed this test. .Dr. Paul Later is knowledgeable and professional doctor.
Dr. Paul Later goes above and beyond to care for my sister who is in a nursing facility. He shows great concern for her circumstances and is a strong advocate for her. We are so pleased to have Dr. Later and Northwestern Medicine on her side.
Dr. Later was very thorough and had a pleasant bedside manner. The only disappointing thing was he had no answers for us, and he was an hour late getting into the room. Our appointment was at 10:00 and he didn't walk in till almost 11:00.
Dr. Later is an excellent physician. Had been to other doctors that seemed mystified as to what I had and had no diagnosis for almost 1 year. He was able to determine my issue and treat it. My quality of life is much better (almost normal).
