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. Matthew Tate was absolutely phenomenal! My husband was a patient at Shirley Ryan and had to be taken to Northwestern for seizures. We feel so blessed that Dr. Tate was his doctor. He had to have brain surgery and we would not have felt like he would have been in capable hands with anyone else! We truly feel like it was a blessing to have been placed in his care. He is a brilliant doctor and also handled us with the best bedside manner. He spent so much time with us and talked to us and never rushed. We felt like he truly cared for us as people and not just another dollar to be made. At first we didn't receive the best news and he was so caring and kind and then celebrated with us when things were better than expected. We truly would go back to him if he were closer! We highly recommend him!
He is great at what he does and I appreciate the skills and knowledge that he holds. He is friendly and respectful, and has put my family and I at ease through multiple surgeries and consultations and I will continue to put my faith in him.
Dr. Tate and his team are always friendly, courteous, and very respectful. This is my second surgery with Dr. Tate and he has always answered all of my questions in a way that I can understand and has put any concerns that I may have at ease. I highly recommend Dr. Tate and continue to have 110% confidence in him with my care.
Dr. Tate was prepared to discuss our case, provide insight into what he is experienced in. He actually read the initial report from 2017. He was aware of the physician and trusted their opinions then and now. Prior to coming to NM our scans weren't explained to us other than it's fine.
Dr Tate is an amazingly kind and skilled neurosurgeon. He always acts as if there is nothing more important than the patient and the issues involved in their care yet is very approachable and empathetic.
Dr. Tate was extremely approachable explaining X-rays, MRIS, etc. He wasn't hurried as so many of the Northwestern doctors seem to be today. He took time to listen and to answer any questions that I might have. I left feeling more positive than I had going into this session.
Everyone in Neurosurgery is helpful and pleasant and they make a patient feel at ease. Dr. Tate is thorough in his assessment of my situation and takes the time to explain my test images. I feel I'm in good hands.
