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.
I believe she is competent and a good listener. She offers suggestions and takes her time to examine you thoroughly. Her recommendations are appropriate. She understands Lupus patients and explains in a way that is appropriate.
Dr Mahieu is very informed and educated. I trust information that she shares. In addition, she has an excellent demeanor - professional and very approachable. I appreciate all that she has done for me and my health!!
Dr. Mahieu is very personable and thorough. She's also very responsive and is great with follow up. Before coming to Rheum, I felt very discouraged about my pain and symptoms and didn't have a lot of confidence I would find a treatment that worked. With Dr. Mahieu, I now feel like I have a supportive care team and makes me feel more confident about my medical care.
Because she is talkative about explaining what her patients want to know about their condition and tht reminds me I need to ask her about my muscle markers in the lab test and if she knows if Dermatomyositis disease symptoms are expected to change after every eight years
I appreciate Mary's care but sometimes feel rushed. I would appreciate if I was told how long the appointment will be beforehand, as I'd prefer to use the time allotted to ask further questions and hear Mary's reasoning for treatment decisions. As we only meet a couple times a year, I'd like to make sure those times are well utilized. Of course, COVID and phone visits have made communication more difficult. I feel silly asking Mary whether I should be worried that she hasn't seen me in person/I haven't gotten X-rays in awhile, so I wish she'd take the initiative to let me know how COVID affects her ability to care for me.
I am very happy .Dr . Mary Alison Mahue is very thorough. Very helpful , .She also has lot of information that makes my life more comfortable . .I have Less discomfort . .I alway feel well taken care of
Dr M has been very receptive to working together on my plan of care and takes into account the years I've dealt with this before seeing her. I have not always responded to meds as expected and she listens when things are not the way the should be.
Dr. Mahieu is a caring doctor who listens to her patients. She remembers things you talked about with her in your prior visits and communications, which shows that she is vested in her patient's individual care.
My first visit with Dr. Mahieu today and I was very pleased. I felt comfortable with her right away. She listened. Asked lots of questions. I did not feel rushed. She also knew about a lot of my history through prior office notes.
She really listens to my feedback and ideas and helps me problem-solve, and explains things clearly when I ask...She's also open to communicating with me outside of appointments through the portal, and I feel it really helps us build a stronger relationship, which shows in the progress I've made.
Dr. Mahieu is spectacular. She has helped me identify improved course of treatments for my problems. She helps me feel safe. She is an incredibly patient listener which helps to not only allay my concerns but helps to refine my treatment when my bodies reaction to an older approach changes.
