I feel that Dr. Martin doesn't read my history before I see her, I have to remind her of many things.

July 27, 2020 8:49 PM

Positive and negative information was received to guide me in monitoring my health. Doctor is concerned for my health and well-being.

July 27, 2020 8:49 PM

It was good that I received updated information about my health to know the changes I must make to improve my health.

July 8, 2020 8:16 PM

very helpful and knowledgeable about my health. concern about my wellbeing.

July 8, 2020 8:16 PM

Very pleasant and knowledgeable. Was well prepared and made excellent suggestions on things to do to maintaining my health.

July 6, 2020 3:25 PM

July 6, 2020 3:25 PM

July 6, 2020 3:22 PM

I love Advocate Health Care, its been a great experience for me. But I especially love Dr. Allison Martin, she's an amazing doctor. And has taken very good care of my physical, emotional and mental health.

July 6, 2020 3:22 PM

Great experience. Dr. Martin is the best doctor I've ever had, in all my 54 years of life. Advocate has been great as well!! 100% recommendation.

June 27, 2020 8:09 AM

Dr. Martin use to be on the top of her game, now her bedside manner is edgy and she is very quick to respond without completely listening to her patient.

June 18, 2020 10:54 AM

Dr. A. Martin take very, very, very good care of me!!!!!

June 16, 2020 8:21 AM

The may 22nd visit was a telephone visit. Dr. Martin answered my question and prescribe medication for the symptoms I described.

June 15, 2020 4:09 PM

registration takes to long. never fully staffed. always a line. personnel talking amongst each other and not attending to patient needs. not friendly or welcoming. considering changing physician based on reception.

June 12, 2020 2:10 PM

Very, very good services.

May 23, 2020 12:14 AM

Dr Allison is excellent, very personable and she takes the time to listen to you.

May 16, 2020 9:55 AM

she actually talks to the child and see how the child is feeling and I love that.. most ppl want to talk to the parent but she actually listen to the child

May 14, 2020 12:04 PM

dr martin always listens to me and explains everything to me in full detail

May 14, 2020 12:04 PM

i am very happy with dr martin as my health care doctor

May 11, 2020 10:08 PM

she was nice and very welcoming.

May 11, 2020 10:08 PM

I had s as n overall great visit.

May 11, 2020 1:38 PM

This was a phone visit due to COVID. Dr Martin always goes through my results and we discuss. upcoming tests and visits are discussed as well. She always asks if there is anything or any other issues.

May 2, 2020 9:00 AM

it was pleasant. she informative and polite

May 2, 2020 9:00 AM

it was a good experience she made me feel comfortable

May 2, 2020 6:11 AM

she was very nice and provide good information.

March 30, 2020 1:32 PM

Because this was during the corona virus pandemic, I had a phone visit with Dr. Martin. I already had a lipid panel taken and viewed the resulths through the portal. Dr. Martin was able to renew my prescription after discussing the test results. She is always very thorough and professional.

March 30, 2020 1:32 PM

Very good experience

March 30, 2020 9:46 AM

Good experience

March 29, 2020 9:53 AM

This provider is usually very rushed, complains to me about it, and doesn't want to deal with more than one health issue per visit. This is difficult to do when one has multiple medical issues that are inter-connected.

March 29, 2020 9:53 AM

The nurse who took my vitals was one of the happiest, nicest nurses I have encountered.

March 22, 2020 6:32 PM

When I attempted to review my extensive medical history with the provider, she cut me off rudely. She said, "I know, I can read your chart.

March 11, 2020 8:00 AM

the receptionist and assistant were very nice and treated me with respect

March 11, 2020 8:00 AM

this was the first time seeing this doctor because my insurance changed. I felt like she did not respect

March 11, 2020 7:14 AM

I needed medicine she couldn't help me get! Her personality is not the greatest, didn't let me know if I should come back for pep smear or exam on my breast, listen to my heart, etc.

March 11, 2020 12:25 AM

as always I had a good visit with Dr. Martin, good results from blood work!!!

March 11, 2020 12:25 AM

a good experience.

March 9, 2020 3:33 PM

Dr. Martin is a great doctor. She is very thorough. I never feel rushed during my visits. She takes her time and explain things on a level that I can comprehend, in layman's terms. She has great bedside manner!

March 3, 2020 8:03 AM

Dr. Martin is always friendly, and comfortable to talk to. Her appointments are always on time and I never have to wait a long time once in the office to see her.

March 1, 2020 6:59 PM

My experience overall is typically very informative and pleasant.

February 29, 2020 10:30 AM

very good doctor would recommend to anyone

February 29, 2020 7:54 AM

Dr Martin is very honest and forthright in discussions, which I truly appreciate. She is also very aware of the time and providing explanations on why a change is needed. I was going to a different doctor in this practice and should have switched to Dr Matin many years ago.

February 29, 2020 7:54 AM

The patient portal is a great resource and the tool I use for any clarification I need. This isn't covered by your survey, but is an extremely useful tool!

February 17, 2020 6:16 PM

good first time visit

February 17, 2020 6:01 PM

good

February 17, 2020 7:09 AM

Provider never show concert or was not willing to hear my health issues. I would ask her something and she would ask me another question. Thinking about switching providers.

February 17, 2020 7:09 AM

I would like to have a provider that can show that they care about my health problems.

February 13, 2020 11:04 AM

Dr. Martin has been my primary physician for about 15 years. Very professional - Wouldn't want any other doctor. Very astute & knowledgeable. Very detailed in caring way.

February 13, 2020 11:04 AM

Excellent!

February 6, 2020 11:00 PM

Dr. Martin is an upbeat, concerned physician. However, she always seems a bit rushed for time. I feel very satisfied and have confidence in her medical care.

February 6, 2020 11:00 PM

I appreciate her speedy responses to email questions.

January 27, 2020 12:35 PM

Never a "call back" question - no follow up & if I ask (tell) about a problem its never questioned again. As in how is the ear ringing back aching foot fracture?

January 25, 2020 7:43 AM

My visit was good

January 23, 2020 4:15 PM

pretty good

January 18, 2020 7:24 AM

Dr. Martin is awesome, she is patient, soft spoken and listens to all my concerns.

January 18, 2020 7:24 AM

I work in the healthcare field, We follow AIDET. I mentioned that because, it was an issue that made a very long wait time for all other patients. There were quite a few older ones, no one came to offer and thing to drink, apologize for the delay and/or make sure everyone was doing ok.

January 13, 2020 5:05 PM

Dr. Martin is always very kind and stays on top of my health and is very aware that not only am I a cancer survivor but is aware I am being treated by cardiology at Loyola hospital, is aware these two company have poor communication with each other but, through myself, she is kept abreast of all medical issues

January 13, 2020 5:05 PM

Having contacted my provider late December she advised I needed my regular labs done and a visit, I set this up and went for the labs at the provider office - I was treated so badly (I am an RN - Case Manager) - I have had breast cancer with node removal bilateral, I explained not to put the tourniquet on till she was ready (She put it on and walked away) she stated That is none of your business, You don't tell me what to do! - I was given huge attitude - having recently had open heart surgery where I almost lost my life - I did not appreciate the attititude - no one deserves to be spoken to that way and shame on people they feel the need to do that as an Hospice Nurse, it bothers me that people still feel the need to feel superior! -

January 13, 2020 4:27 PM

Good experience

January 13, 2020 4:27 PM

Was treated in a fast & respectful manner

January 13, 2020 4:06 PM

very nice

January 13, 2020 2:31 PM

She is very respectful and responsible

January 13, 2020 2:31 PM

always great experience with Dr Allison Martin

January 13, 2020 1:51 PM

It was a typical routine appointment. It went as they usually do which is good.

January 13, 2020 1:51 PM

Dr. Martin is always punctual and courteous. It is why I am still her patient. I left the last two physicians I had with Advocate because I was not happy with the way I was treated.

December 30, 2019 1:21 PM

I truly enjoy my visit with doctor Martin. She listened to all my questions and concerns and answered me appropriately.

December 21, 2019 1:02 PM

Good as always!

December 17, 2019 7:12 AM

Dr Martin makes you feel very comfortable to talk to she answered all my questions,. I would recommend her to my family and friends

December 16, 2019 8:39 PM

I feel like the physician should use gloves while opening up the the thing used for a Pap smear considering the equipment is considered sterilized.

December 16, 2019 2:35 PM

Things were great as always!

December 13, 2019 11:00 PM

It was excellent.

December 13, 2019 11:00 PM

Very good doctor. Friendly.

December 12, 2019 10:16 AM

very pleasant

November 30, 2019 1:21 AM

Very good. Hope to book future appointments with this provider.

November 26, 2019 7:26 AM

I have been seeing dr martin at least a year. I have expressed to her the need to get in to see a specialist for my RA and that I cannot get in before 3 months, I had hoped she would send a message to the referring dr since dr martin told me she cannot refill my medications for my RA and I need refills. That does not seem to be the case. When I came to her I had several things I needed to speak to her about and two were referrals and two were particular health problems and I was told that she can only address so many things in one visit. should I have made two appts that day?

November 23, 2019 2:27 PM

I was seen quickly. The visit was thorough. the doctor treated me with respect.

November 13, 2019 11:00 PM

Pleasant.

November 11, 2019 11:00 PM

My experience with the clerks and nurses is always good, because I feel they care. I feel the doctors are just trying to get done. The only doctor I feel doesn't rush is my husband's doctor.

November 11, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr Martin listens to my concerns, and understands my long term goal to stay healthy.

November 11, 2019 7:10 PM

I appreciate your forthrightness and candor, while pointing out the positive points of my lab results.

November 11, 2019 7:10 PM

My experiences have been good so far.

November 11, 2019 3:13 PM

registration process takes too long. line is out the door. patients sleeping, literally laying across several chairs waiting to be called. not enough chairs.

November 8, 2019 11:00 PM

She was informed that I got my flu shot and wanted it added to my chart. She told me she didn't know how to do that in Epic and herTech should have taken care ofit. The tech did not and that's why I offered the information. It is really not that hard to enter and all OCOs should know how to do that

November 8, 2019 11:00 PM

My provider made much more facial contact with me and actually spend more than the ususal amount of time discussing my concerns. Great visit!

November 6, 2019 11:00 PM

everything was great

November 6, 2019 11:00 PM

everything was great

November 4, 2019 6:00 PM

This provider is always aware of my history and medications. I feel like she knows me.

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

The provider was very angry when the appointment started, this was due to a scheduling confusion. And then she went on to start venting about her "incompetent nurses" messing up her schedule, and banging on her keyboard in frustration. After processing her listed item of work that she needed to focus on, she logged out of her computer and said, "Anything else?", which then I said "yes, my allergies are getting way worse", which set her off way more, and she then had to log back into her computer seemingly almost breaking her keyboard again. This very unprofessional behavior scared me away from divulging detailed information about my illnesses due to feeling like I am consuming too much of her time and inconveniencing her, at my loss. While talking about my allergies, which I have considered going to the emergency room several times in the past couple weeks, but figured I would talk to her since I had an appointment soon. And while in the appointment her response to "my allergies are getting way worse" was "you are taking Allegra, that is all I can do". I then had to suggest, "could I get a referral to a specialist?", "I guess", and then more jamming on the keyboard.

October 13, 2019 7:00 PM

Love the care I receive from Dr. Martin

October 13, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Martin is an excellent physician. She has a wonderful bedside manner, and I know she's cares for me and works to resolve all of. y needs. her MA is excellent as well!

September 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Martin is always on time and very upbeat.We discuss my health and current medications and the results of my blood tests. We go over what tests I will need in the future and she puts orders in my file. She is very through and patient.

September 15, 2019 7:00 PM

August 17, 2019 7:00 PM

wait times for all of my doctors appointments are ridiculously long no matter what doctor I see am having to wait at least an hour and a half.also when I was off of work and had to have insurance and fmla paperwork filled out it always took a long time to get done and if I had to contact the doctors nurse I would rarely get a call back.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent and thorough care as always.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Provider was pleasant and seemed to care about my physical & mental well being

July 26, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Martin couldn't access the computer in the exam room, so she never saw my child's medical history. I was disappointed that she didn't move to another room or get access another way. She had never even seen my child, but was treating her with no info.
