Dr. Cipolla listens. He provides comprehensive care and I trust him. I am very happy and and grateful that he is my primary physician and I would recommend him to everyone I know.

July 13, 2020 4:43 PM

July 13, 2020 4:43 PM

Excellent experience!

July 11, 2020 2:32 PM

He was very through and detailed in his exam.

July 11, 2020 2:32 PM

I will continue to use this doctor for future needs for me and my husband. The office is is close to my house, everyone was professional and friendly. The doctor was bright, good personality and was knowledgeable. I have been a nurse since 1984 and I was very impressed with how good he was.

July 8, 2020 6:03 AM

this is one of my favorite dr's. he takes his time with me and explains everything. great dr.

July 7, 2020 2:09 PM

great personality and knowledge

July 6, 2020 1:36 PM

this was my first visit with Dr. Cipolla. I was looking for a GO that would continue practicing for the rest of my life. very nice young Dr., and I intend to use him as my Primary Care Doc.

July 6, 2020 1:36 PM

very good. efficient and thorough.

July 6, 2020 1:28 PM

Dr. Cipolla is great. Kind, thoughtful, respectful - really listens

July 6, 2020 1:28 PM

I really dislike the Advocate Aurora system. I can't call my doctor's office directly, everything has to bounce around in an opaque system, it's annoying to make appointments online (though the messaging and appointment making have gotten better)

July 4, 2020 11:41 AM

very caring doctor

June 27, 2020 3:34 PM

Dr. Cipolla is the best. I've recommended him to several people.

June 27, 2020 12:54 PM

Dr Cipolla was excellent as usual. He truly is the best doctor I could ask for.

June 24, 2020 9:08 AM

Excellent. Open and honest.

June 24, 2020 9:08 AM

I like the Patient Portal where all doctors and caregivers comments and treatment is listed. Dr. Cipolla takes the time to review and understand my history. Very thorough.

May 23, 2020 7:21 AM

Great experience. I would go to this doctor if helived closer to where I live. He was very kind.

May 19, 2020 8:52 AM

zoom visit was great. new dr for us. very kind, considerate, professional and thorough I needed a refill on levothyroxin and thyroid blood test. Talked about headaches probably related to tramadol/ anelgesic rebound. better!

May 19, 2020 8:52 AM

delighted to have Dr Cippolla as our GP. We HATE not being able to speak with drs office directly. seriously delays things and creates such potential for misinformation. Still waiting on xray results for husband rick. request sent thru service. still nada!!!!!!!

May 19, 2020 8:51 AM

First time speaking with Dr. Cipolla, as our family Dr of over 40 years, Dr. X, retired. We plan to use Dr. Cipolla from now on. He called as planned and we had a very nice discussion.

May 19, 2020 8:51 AM

We liked Dr. Cipollas manner and apparent caring attitude.

May 19, 2020 8:00 AM

Capolla is terrific straight shooter no BS approach

May 16, 2020 9:34 AM

I think the Dr is doing the best he can do under the pressure of seeing so many patients and is giving the best care he can give as a dr should!

May 11, 2020 6:50 PM

very understanding and solves any health issues I see him for

May 11, 2020 6:50 PM

very good!

April 27, 2020 2:51 PM

Dr Cipolla and his staff are always professional and accommodating.

April 16, 2020 8:58 AM

Dr. Cippola is kind, listens and always options for treatment.

April 16, 2020 8:58 AM

Excellent doctor!

April 4, 2020 8:20 AM

The Doctor truly loves being a good Doctor.

April 4, 2020 8:20 AM

The Doctor really cares.

March 28, 2020 8:36 AM

Anthony Cipolla is very thorough , intelligent , caring and patient. I wish I would've met him years ago he was referred to me by another healthcare professional.

March 23, 2020 2:26 PM

This was my first visit as a new patient with Dr. Cipolla. He was very comforting and motivating. I felt completely at ease.

March 23, 2020 2:26 PM

My experience was very positive. I left feeling motivated to move forward with improving my health. Dr. Cipolla was non-judgemental and very uplifting.

March 23, 2020 10:12 AM

I like dr. cipolia.

March 17, 2020 7:22 AM

I just wish when I called the "office" I was really calling my Doctor's office instead of someone I have never met or have no idea where they are.

March 16, 2020 8:44 PM

As usual good job

March 16, 2020 8:44 PM

Excellent

March 16, 2020 3:48 PM

The doctor was very helpful, kind, and was very courteous. Answered all my questions

March 10, 2020 3:00 PM

I am glad I have found Dr. Cipolla, He is easy to talk to and never makes me feel stupid for asking questions. He always takes the time to answer my Questions or to explain things. He is also very respectful

March 10, 2020 12:07 PM

Dr. Cipolla is the best doctor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He takes his time with me, explains everything thoroughly, and gives me all my options. I feel very comfortable talking about any issue with Dr. Cipolla, and am more than happy to wait a little longer to see him during a routine visit, because you can tell he cares about all his patients.

March 10, 2020 10:02 AM

It was a follow up visit. I was in a car accident a month a go and the hospital said when I got discharged to go see him. He is always professional and answers all my questions I have.

March 10, 2020 10:02 AM

Just wish the wait time was less but the doctor does spend plenty of time with me.

March 9, 2020 9:05 AM

Dr spent a lot of time with me

March 2, 2020 2:43 PM

With this provider it's always a positive experience

March 2, 2020 2:43 PM

The provider is always attentive to any concern I may have, I never feel rushed to conclude the visit, I always recommend this provider to my friends and family.

February 27, 2020 9:19 AM

Excellent.

February 24, 2020 9:00 PM

The doctor sat down, just like a friend and talked about my health and any thing that had me worried. he did the physical, He was not in any hurry until every question I had was answered. VERY GOOD Doctor

February 24, 2020 9:00 PM

Dr.Cipolla called me at home and told me about my blood test results, And told me how to correct some of the problems he saw with my blood test results.

February 23, 2020 9:07 AM

Dr. Cipollo, is wonderful, he really listens to me, and he does not rush me out of the visit, I don't mind waiting a little, because I know he cares about his patients.

February 23, 2020 9:07 AM

In Oct of 2019, I lost a grandchild, he was murdered, I had some depression and stress, Dr. Cipollo listened to me, gave me a hug, gave direction on how to cope, and gave me additional directions on my depression meds. When I came back for my last visit, he remembered my situation, and immediately asked how I was and how my family was doing. He cares, and that is what makes a good physician.

February 22, 2020 3:37 AM

always a great experience.

February 18, 2020 5:10 AM

I love Dr Cippola and his staff. Thank you for making him part of the Advocate Care Team !

February 18, 2020 5:10 AM

love Dr Cippola !

February 17, 2020 9:35 PM

excellent carehonest no BS approach from doctor much appreciated

February 15, 2020 7:43 AM

I am very happy with the care Dr Cipola provides. For the most part the Nurses are great. The girls front desk could use a little help in the people skills, but they are way better than dealing with the call center that answers the phones.

February 9, 2020 8:21 PM

doctor Cipolla is amazing!! he explains everything really good and listen He personally called me to give me the results of my exams the nurse very friendly, front desk ok

February 9, 2020 8:21 PM

very good

February 2, 2020 10:07 AM

Dr. Cipolla is the best. I greatly appreciate having a doctor who so thoroughly understands my condition(s) and knows exactly how best I can address all the issues I have. I've never had such an excellent doctor before.

February 1, 2020 12:31 PM

Dr. Cipolla is an excellent doctor and I'm grateful to have him

February 1, 2020 8:54 AM

Dr. Cipolla is very caring and addressing all your needs.

February 1, 2020 8:54 AM

No bad experiences with Dr. Cipolla, all very good and positive.

February 1, 2020 6:49 AM

I had a lump under my armpit and of course was worried of cancer and Dr Anthony cipolla made me feel better about it!

February 1, 2020 6:49 AM

he is such a caring and genuine Dr. made me feel super comfortable about the whole process and I can tell he cares about his patients!

January 28, 2020 1:39 PM

Very disappointed that when I call the office the call goes to a call center. Three times in the past month when I was going through a lot of medical problems and I had to talk to the call center to make appointment all three times the call center staff were _____ very rude _____ and unprofessional. One even made me cry and I am a strong person. Please either refrain all of your call center staff including supervisors or go back to when I call my provider the call goes directly to the office. I can't say enough bad about your call center, however I will say Dr. Cipolla is one of the most caring, compassionate, and understanding doctors I have ever seen.

January 28, 2020 9:25 AM

It's always a good experience when I go and I highly recommend him to anyone looking, even my own family who has been searching.

January 28, 2020 7:21 AM

Dr. Cipolla is fantastic and always listens to my concerns. He is well versed in my family history and previous medical history and provides excellent care.

January 27, 2020 4:15 PM

Dr. Cipolla always takes great care and consideration for me and my health when I see him. We talk through all options whether it be natural or medicinal solutions to my problems. I love him and tell everyone he is one of the kindest caring and responsive doctors I've ever had, and I've seen many. He has caught conditions that I've had that no other doctor recognized. We have made him our whole family's doctor. My son and husband love him too. If you send him an email he responds on the same day through the Advocate portal. You need more Dr. Cipolla-like doctors. Also, did have knee replacement last November by Dr. X at IBJI and he is phenomenal too!

January 27, 2020 4:15 PM

I get very upset at your "system", I should not have to go through so many people at the Advocate "phone banks" or whatever you use just to get an appointment or ask a question. I also get upset because I have no way to call my Doctor's office in Wauconda directly, you always make me go through your insane system vs. just getting to the point by calling the Drs. office. Your system stinks. Good old days should be brought back where you can touch base at the actual Doctor's office vs. going through an impersonal maze of people to get word to the actual Dr. you need. IBJI I can get to my doctor without the maze! Get back to being more personal no matter how BIG you think you are! Just saying AND FYI - I take great umbrage to the fact that after my knee surgery at Condell on Nov. 13, 2019 I get bills from out of nowhere from Doctors I don't know and wasn't asked if you could ADD them to my care during my knee surgery. It's robbery, I am pushing for that Hospital TRANSPARENCY bill in Congress. Advocate is famous for billing for services without my knowledge or any explanation. I shouldn't have to pay, nor my insurance, for bills you "slip" in hoping I'll just pay them. It shouldn't be allowed! That's all

January 27, 2020 2:32 PM

Dr. Cippola is always attentive and helpful. I appreciate his focus during my visits. never feel like he's in a hurry to move on. In the case of my most recent visit, he made special arrangements to see me ahead of his normal schedule so he could squeeze me in. He is AWESOME

January 25, 2020 3:40 AM

Dr C has provided me with what I have been looking for with a relationship with a primary care physician which I haven't had in the past with other advocate providers. he doesn't make me feel bad about my health but takes a team approach to help get me to to where I need to eventually get to

January 25, 2020 3:40 AM

Dr C is always responsive when I send an email message through the portal, this means a lot to me with my schedule

January 20, 2020 2:25 PM

Very good as always!

January 4, 2020 7:24 AM

The Doctor is very knowledgeable, kind and engaging with me.

January 1, 2020 9:03 PM

The doctor is a good listener and gives me whatever time I need to describe my concerns. He is very knowledgable.

December 30, 2019 7:14 PM

Doctor was caring and took the time to listen and explained things that were easy for me to understand.

December 30, 2019 7:14 PM

I felt very comfortable talking with the doctor about my situation and my options. I'm glad I was able to get an appointment with him.

December 28, 2019 11:42 AM

always helpful to help my mother as she is heading down the path of dementia

December 28, 2019 11:42 AM

always compassionate and tries to help the situation as best as possible.

December 26, 2019 3:06 PM

Very pleasant considering I was sick.

December 26, 2019 3:06 PM

Good. The doctor and the other person that took the vital signs, took time to listen and get my vitals and questioned me and listened to my C /O illness.

December 16, 2019 9:53 PM

Dr Cipolla is the best doctor I have ever seen. He is very attentive, and let's me talk while helistens.

December 11, 2019 6:02 AM

Dr. Cipolla was very courteous and listened to all my concerns. I did not feel rushed. I felt like he truly cared and wanted to hear what I had to say.

December 9, 2019 6:55 PM

Dr. Cipolla is wonderful. I moved but knew I wanted to keep him as my primary care doctor for sure.

December 9, 2019 6:55 PM

love that guy!

December 9, 2019 1:25 PM

This was a first visit so that is why he didn't know my history etc. Dr. Cipolla was great. I will be sticking with him as my Primary from now on.

December 9, 2019 1:25 PM

Great.

December 4, 2019 6:26 AM

I do not like having to call an answering service 20 miles away when I need to speak to my doctor or reception staff.

December 2, 2019 8:10 PM

Dr Cippola listens carefully and discusses things with me. he is usually pressed for time so I don't feel I get to spend enough time with him going over everything, for instance he has sent in prescriptions for me for the wrong inhaler before that I can't take due to migraines and it wasn't the one I asked to be refilled.

December 2, 2019 8:10 PM

most of my experiences with Dr C have been great, the ones that weren't usually weren't his fault - being in the waiting room for an hour etc

December 2, 2019 1:47 PM

the doctor was very nice, attentive and personable. he listened to my concerns and asked follow up questions.

December 2, 2019 1:47 PM

I waited a long time in the exam room (30 min) after talking with the nurse but before seeing the doctor. it was the day before a holiday but the wait time was not discussed.

November 30, 2019 3:58 AM

Dr Cipolla is an excellent Doctor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and is very responsive to you. I also, enjoy how quickly you hear back from him.

November 25, 2019 5:25 PM

very good experience very Good Dr and staffs

November 23, 2019 4:53 AM

very satisfied

November 23, 2019 4:53 AM

nice and friendly. we talked about everything I wanted to and then some.
