Great experience and I'm always satisfied with my visits!

July 6, 2020 4:44 PM

Just good experiences!

July 6, 2020 4:28 PM

Dr Kowalski is a very understanding and concerned provider and knows my conditions very well. I always feel better about myself after I see her and she is very reasonable in her approach. She takes all the time I need and responds to my online messages

July 6, 2020 4:28 PM

Excellent experience as always with this provider.

May 27, 2020 2:18 PM

Very good.

May 21, 2020 8:19 AM

I do not speak English. The doctor looked for an interpreter in Spanish to help me. I was scared, my eldest son had just died because of COVID-19 and I had a sore throat but I did not have a fever. The doctor helped me a lot even though she is not my doctor, attended to me very good.

May 15, 2020 9:02 AM

I was having back problems and called the doctor. Got my call back within a hour. Took care of me. Just how I wanted to be. Great work.

May 15, 2020 9:02 AM

Everything I needed done was done quick and with respect. This is how it should be don't change a thing. Keep up the great work.

April 20, 2020 9:09 AM

Excellent provider and service.

March 22, 2020 9:15 AM

This was my first visit with this provider after moving here from Florida. I felt very comfortable and at ease with the entire process.

March 22, 2020 9:15 AM

Very pleased with the entire process and staff!

March 17, 2020 9:44 AM

Dr. Kowalski is very patient & understanding and answers all of my questions thoroughly. She is amazing!

March 16, 2020 2:28 PM

Dr. Kowalski is the best doctor I've ever had

March 16, 2020 9:12 AM

Dr. Kowalski has always been a caring/respectful and knowledgeable in her dept. of medicine. I don't have any reason to feel that she's lacking in her field. I appreciate her care always and she's always there for her expert medical care and advices -

March 14, 2020 2:02 PM


March 14, 2020 2:02 PM

Very satisfied.

March 10, 2020 7:52 PM

The doctor was 30 minutes late for my appointment and I understand it is due to double booking. I feel for the doctor and that practice is enough to make me avoid Advocate.

March 10, 2020 7:52 PM

Facility and ease of blood test was good.

February 25, 2020 12:29 PM

Dr Kowalski is very nice and puts one at ease. very efficient!

February 4, 2020 7:19 AM

Although Dr. Danuta Kowalski was thorough she is not very engaging. I had to see another doctor because my doctor was on a leave of absence until February & I needed a prescription refill. I prefer to stay with Dr. X

February 3, 2020 9:12 PM

She was great

February 3, 2020 9:12 PM

The only complaint I have is the girl who took my blood was very rude.

February 1, 2020 4:27 PM

I did not have a good experience with this provider. I felt like my needs were completely disregarded, and she did not make any effort to understand why I was seeking certain treatment.

February 1, 2020 4:27 PM

Dr Kowalski tried to convince me to stop taking several medications that I rely on to function, without asking why I was taking them or attempting to address the problem that led to them being prescribed. She recommended I go off my antidepressant without asking about my history or need for that medication because I was taking too many things. I don't want to be taking so many medications either, but I do it because I have conditions that the medication addresses. I felt unsupported and dismissed by Dr Kowalski and won't be returning for regular care or acute issues.

February 1, 2020 4:24 PM

The visit is usually pleasant

February 1, 2020 8:27 AM

nice doctor

February 1, 2020 8:27 AM

good experience

January 26, 2020 5:18 AM

Staff answers all my questions and puts you at ease.

January 25, 2020 5:51 AM

Dr.Kowski, is a good doctor I never feel like she didn't do her job when I go there. That's why I always go back.

January 25, 2020 5:51 AM

no bad experience.

January 20, 2020 3:26 PM

good time for the visit

Very good.

December 30, 2019 1:49 PM

As always, Dr. Kowalski is attentive, explains conditions and is very clear about next steps.

December 27, 2019 8:32 AM

Dr. Kowalski always very professional, helpful & caring. Excellent doctor -

December 27, 2019 8:32 AM

Excellent experience.

December 23, 2019 10:05 AM

Everyone is so kind!

December 23, 2019 10:05 AM

Very good. My doctor is so kind, knowledgeable. Couldn't ask for someone so kind.

December 19, 2019 1:40 AM

She acted like she did not want to be at work and very cold and indifferent.

December 15, 2019 5:08 PM

The whole process felt very impersonal. It felt more like a business transaction more than anything. I felt rushed out there. It was as though they were turning out patients. The Doctor lacked empathy and felt cold and distant. Overall I did not enjoy my experience and might look for another doctor for future check-ups.

December 15, 2019 5:08 PM

Did not enjoy my experience. I was ask "Why are you here?" as though I was a nuisance especially if you don't look sick and nothing is wrong with you (I was there for my yearly checkup). I felt rushed as I explained the reasons for coming and my concerns about my health. The doctor felt cold, distant and not at all empathy to my needs. They overall interact was quick - she got out of there and left me with the Tech to take care of me. I received better care and felt more cared for by the Tech than the doctor.

December 11, 2019 9:58 PM

Dr. Kowalski has been my doctor for close to 25 years. Everywhere she has moved (since Ravenswood) I have followed.

December 11, 2019 9:58 PM

She is always very polite, answers my questions and is very friendly. She knows all of my family and always asks how everyone is.

December 10, 2019 12:46 PM

Good experience.

December 9, 2019 9:03 PM

good experience

November 28, 2019 7:36 AM

November 28, 2019 7:36 AM

The entire staff at the Irving/Western location are wonderful.

November 21, 2019 1:24 PM

Feel very comfortable and happy with services.

November 21, 2019 1:24 PM

Did good jobs. Keep up the good work.

November 18, 2019 8:26 AM

I had a appointment with Doctor Kowalski, and she examined my back and also filled out documents needed right away.

November 18, 2019 8:26 AM

Great doctor the best of the best. Also nurses! Wonderful, and attentive. And compassionate.

November 6, 2019 11:00 PM

April 22, 2019 7:00 PM

she seemed nice.

April 18, 2019 7:00 PM

I have been seeking Tx w/Dr. Kowalski over 10 yrs however, I am feeling as if I need to reconsider another provider. I feel as if she is not able to answer some of my concerns w/regards to my health - 2 might or should refer to a gynecologist vs. a general doctor.

April 18, 2019 7:00 PM

I like her. I feel comfortable with her.

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Very Good Primary Doctor.

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

The experience with this Provider on this visit was most pleasant and efficient.

April 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kowalski is wonderful. She always listens and makes me feel what I have to say is important to her. I feel she genuinely cares for me.

April 1, 2019 7:00 PM

she was prompt with the pick up. she listened to what I had to say and told me about probably causes. she gave a description of what she was going to do and what I was going to feel before she was going to do anything.

March 26, 2019 7:00 PM

I've been seeing Dr. Kowalski for over 15 years - she's great.

February 4, 2019 6:00 PM

very happy with Danuta Kowalski. Starting a new medication to help with anxiety and having trouble with sleep patterns. Talked about seeing a neurologist to help address her current issues. Thanks.

February 1, 2019 6:00 PM

I have seen my Provider for a good amount of time now and there is a comfort level that I have with her. However there are times that I want her to explain how to treat a problem while at home. She helped with my problem and said to come back when necessary (ear wax removal).

February 1, 2019 6:00 PM
