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. Smith is the best doctor ever. She is so caring, understanding, and always works with you to figure out how to determine the next steps for any issues I have. I would highly recommend her and feel so fortunate to have her as my healthcare provider.
Dr. Smith is a great doctor not just for her knowledge, but her empathy and taking the time to understand the needs/wants of her patients. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a physician in the Evanston area.
Dr. Smith is a wonderful doctor. She is caring and soothing. She doesn't rush the appointment. She takes her time with me during each appointment, and I always leave feeling truly cared for. I've even recommended her to a family member who expressed an interest in possibly switching doctors. Dr. Smith is the best!
Dr Smith is kind, sincere, and knowledgeable. She is an excellent physician and a caring person. I always feel welcome and never feel rushed. She asks questions and is very attentive. I always enjoy seeing her and I'm very happy she's my doctor.
I really love that Dr. Smith hears my needs and concerns when deciding on a plan of treatment. I expressed concern with the cost of a somewhat optional vaccine, and she helped me find a solution that was both cost-effective and keeps me safe while traveling. She was phenomenal in making me feel empowered in this decision.
This was my first visit with Dr. Smith and I was a little nervous. She was great! Very professional yet personable. She showed concern for my issues and sought ways to resolve them, even given me alternatives along the way.
Eleanor Smith seems like a good, thorough doctor, but her bedside manner is not to my taste. She is blunt, even a little gruff with comments and recommendations - her tone seems to say, "Well, I'm a doctor and know what I'm talking about; you are not a doctor and don't know anything." I'm sure this demeanor is fine for some patients, but I find it off-putting.
Dr. Smith is one of the few doctors I've encountered who actually cares for people and wants to help. She listens well and gives sound advice. Any decisions that are made are made with patients not by her alone. I find these qualities very important.
Dr. Smith is very thorough with providing information and makes sure I am included in the process. She's kind and informative, and she was willing to walk me through the whole process and answer questions. I have a great degree of confidence in her.
We had a ton of info to cover on this first visit to establish new care. Dr. Smith had to balance the one hour time we had with all that needed to be covered and was very clear about needing to be fair to others in terms of staying on schedule. She has exceptional communication skills
Like Dr. Smith very much she listens and explains everything very well and always friendly and has the time without feeling rushed. Always good suggestions as to health options and concerned about whatever is going on.
Dr. Smith is the reason I go to this practice for my medical care. Really appreciate the time she takes in a visit, her clear communication, and the empathy she demonstrates. Truly a gem that is rare to find in 21st century medical care.
I appreciate that Dr. Smith took time to expand on an issue that I was passing off as a minor problem during my routine physical exam. The fact that she didn't just skip over that issue and took time to discuss it was comforting and reflects her thoughtfulness as a care provider.
Dr. Smith was upfront, light and humorous where called for and serious with fact-filled sentences and observations. She did not talk down to me (as some doctors have) and she gave the appropriate amount of medical detail to satisfy my questions and provide me with the information I wanted/needed.
Dr Smith was the epitome of a caring, well informed, intuitive professional MD. We came to her with a specific, unusual request for a psychiatric referral for a complicated issue and she acted on the request with the utmost care and concern. I felt like she was sent from heaven during a very difficult time in our family.
