The branch of NW i use is very nice and the staff is super friendly. So far my doctor has been very helpful to me and communicative. All staff members i have seen have been great. i previously went to Rush, but after a family member was diagnosed with cancer, and she went to NW for all of her treatments, i became more familiar and comfortable with NW and decided to use yor services for my personal GP.
