June 8, 2020 2:15 PM

So thankful Dr. Brian Chicoine is our daughter's MD. Confident in his care and concern - we also have to include the entire auxiliary staff; professional @ ADSC it has been reassuring to have appointments during the COVID-19 pandemic and be able to get questions answered.

We would like to ask whether the lab where blood gets drawn after physical exams at Advocate Lutheran General could be improved. We have to sit in the hall for up to 1 hr. 20 minutes each visit. The waiting room is full.

February 2, 2020 5:22 AM

Wait time was 80 minutes on 1/13/2020. Maybe they could pass out "beepers/pagers" like they do in restaurants. My son is developmentally disabled and my husband & I are old.
