great!!

July 7, 2020 7:26 AM

During this time of COVID-19 they did everything possible to make sure I had a safe and secure visit (for all of us) Dr. Giraldo has been my doctor for many years and I trust him implicitly.

July 6, 2020 1:35 PM

advocate phone clerks are not very helpful and cause more confusion than they help when trying to reach the doctors office. once I reach the doctor, I have no issues.

June 25, 2020 11:42 AM

Excellent I feel very good on having chosen this professional doctor.

June 25, 2020 11:42 AM

I feel very good with the appointments of this professional doctor. "Thanks."

June 23, 2020 7:45 AM

Dr. Giraldo addressed the issues that brought me in to see him.

May 28, 2020 2:02 PM

May 20, 2020 9:20 AM

Dr. Giraldo has been my doctor for about 20 yrs.

May 19, 2020 8:53 AM

It's a good experience with the consultation. The receptionists an excellent attention & do not delay extreme wait in the office.

May 14, 2020 8:11 AM

It was our first telemedicne experience. The doctor prior the visit was very professional & patient. Dr. Giraldo was excellent asking me what were my needs & concerns.

March 31, 2020 12:58 PM

Dr. Giraldo was very extensive in my 6 moth check up

March 23, 2020 9:42 PM

Dr. Giraldo is pleasant, polite and professional. He gives enough time for his patients to talk about their health concerns.

March 23, 2020 9:42 PM

Good.

March 21, 2020 3:03 AM

Excellent service by my doctor and his office staff. The experience to get to talk to him is AWFUL. That needs to be included in the survey, and fixed. It is disappointing to call Advocate to try to get an appointment with the doctor. It takes a lot of people to finally get to the doctors office. It takes approximately, 15-20 minutes to finally get to the doctor's office. Too much red tape to cut.

March 21, 2020 12:00 AM

I have been a patient of Dr. Giraldo for more than 10 years.

March 16, 2020 8:43 PM

he is very entertaining!!!

March 16, 2020 8:43 PM

he is a good doctor

March 14, 2020 4:29 PM

Overall, good.

March 14, 2020 4:29 PM

Dr. Giraldo is very kind and takes the time to listen to concerns. X was very efficient and caring.

March 13, 2020 7:41 AM

It was efficient & professional.

March 13, 2020 12:00 AM

Phone system is poor not sure if doctor is getting all messages especially on refill prescriptions, taking several calls.

March 11, 2020 9:56 AM

Dr. Giraldo has been my PCP for over 10 years. His demeanor and knowledge is caring and extremely helpful during the appointments.

March 11, 2020 9:56 AM

The nursing staff and receptionists are also kind and caring.

February 26, 2020 6:54 AM

I saw this provider for a pre-surgical check-up. He was very patient and kind. I did not feel rushed and liked him very much!

February 23, 2020 2:13 PM

Dr. Giraldo clearly knows me, which is important to me. He remembers my history and provides care in the context of it. He is mindful of the effects of treatments and medications, positive and potentially negative, he gives me clear and understandable explanations to his rationale about them and invites me to share my thoughts. I feel respected and well taken care of in his care.

February 20, 2020 5:33 AM

Dr. Giraldo was very helpful in his diagnosis & care for my illness. Health care nurse & providers were very courteous & helpful. Receptionist was helpful. Was seen within 10 minutes!

February 18, 2020 11:57 AM

Provider was in a hurry, he told me since I was a few minutes (literally, 3-4 min) late, he did not have time because he had others waiting. Any questions I asked, he would nod and advise me to ask my regular doctor, I was with him no more than a few minutes, my appointment was scheduled for 2:20, was in room by 2:25, saw nurse for a couple on minutes, was in my car at 2:38, felt like going inside and asking for a refund for my co-pay, lol. The staff and nurse were very nice and professional, thanks

February 18, 2020 8:07 AM

Dr. Andres Giraldo was extremely familiar with my recent hospital visits and current issues. I did not have to brief him much as he had read the detailed history. We discussed ways to control my condition(s) while eliminating prescriptions as I take 18 prescriptions and vitamin supplements daily. He also had his assistant print out the results of a recent colonoscopy that was performed by a different physician, which I very much appreciated.

February 18, 2020 8:07 AM

Dr. Giraldo's office assistants and the front office receptionists were also friendly and knowledgeable. I only waited a couple minutes in the waiting room before seeing Dr. Giraldo.

February 17, 2020 4:31 PM

I felt the doctor was rushed and anxious to get on to the next patient. I wish he had started off just chatting for a few minutes instead of focusing on his laptop and not making eye contact.

February 16, 2020 5:09 PM

Appreciate the ability to get to see my doctor on very short notice. I called and was able to get ion within 2 hours. i had bronchitis and was very ill.

February 13, 2020 11:19 AM

Good doctor makes you feel comfortable.

February 13, 2020 11:19 AM

Very polite nurse and staff.

February 10, 2020 2:51 PM

My husband & I have been patients of Dr. Giraldo's for a number of years & are both extremely happy with his conscientious care and concern for our well-being.

February 10, 2020 1:22 PM

Dr. Andres Alberto Giraldo is a fantastic Dr. He has helped me understand my issues, and helps me deal with them.

February 3, 2020 11:26 PM

Dr. Giraldo was very pleasant and attentive. He thoroughly reviewed my chart and was ready for the visit.

February 3, 2020 9:07 PM

I felt a blood test was rushed . I was not fasting for a diabetic test and I wanted to see if a new scrip would work.

December 30, 2019 3:33 PM

excelent doctor.

December 30, 2019 3:33 PM

New patient, I was very impressed with Dr. Giraldo. very attentive and caring.

December 30, 2019 1:29 PM

Dr Giraldo is the best. He knows me better than I know myself. We have an agreement that I will follow his directions the best I can and he will always give me the best advice and direction. This visit was for an acute injury and his advice was as usual right on the money.

December 30, 2019 1:29 PM

Office staff was thorough and polite as usual. Dr's assistant is the very best and always has the answers I need.

December 30, 2019 8:44 AM

Dr. Giraldo is excellent and I feel very comfortable with their services.

December 28, 2019 9:24 AM

Excellent! No complaints.

November 14, 2019 11:00 PM

You need to train knowledgeable individuals to answer the phone. It took me 1/2 hour to get a simple appointment! And it happened more than 1 time.

November 13, 2019 6:55 PM

He was marvelous and solved my problem. And told me how to continue to eliminate it.

November 11, 2019 1:50 PM

Very good and friendly.

November 11, 2019 1:50 PM

Generally he's good talking and explaining the medical terms if needed.

November 3, 2019 6:00 PM

my provider was excellent. what was not excellent was the wait time in the lab. this process always takes too long, usually over 1/2 hour to have blood and lab work done. please hire more people!

November 2, 2019 7:00 PM

everything with provider is great.

October 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Great service.

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Giraldo has been our family physician for many years. My husband & I are very grateful for his professionalism & his concern for us & our family. This visit simply reinforced this belief.

October 26, 2019 7:00 PM
