I like this doctor - I try not to see doctors too often though.

July 6, 2020 3:14 PM

He's conservative, which I like. In the past helped me find a new primary care doctor. I see him every 6 months for cardiac follow up. Always willing to answer my questions, has good follow-up.

July 6, 2020 3:14 PM

Have recommended him several times. He's an asset to Advocate/ Aurora.

July 6, 2020 3:03 PM

He is very nice and listens when I express my concerns.

July 1, 2020 5:05 PM

The doctor is the best I've had.

He and his staff are great. Always a good experience in that office.

February 15, 2020 6:08 AM

My doctor is very knowledgeable, kind, and caring. He is an asset to advocate and the department.

February 15, 2020 6:08 AM

I think limited time doctor have for patients is not good. It puts patients and doctors under pressure and stress. Maybe hiring additional doctors would help!

February 10, 2020 4:47 PM

Dr. T is very upbeat, he's always glad to see me. He usually offers friendly counsel as to taking care of my heart and my health in general. Last visit he complimented me on my normal BP readings considering all my heart procedures. Give him a raise!

December 24, 2019 7:11 AM

highly recommended to others

December 21, 2019 12:59 PM

I felt a general change in the Advocate climate. Staff changes a more casual attitude toward patient and overall I am getting disappointed in the feeling I get about our experience.

December 21, 2019 12:59 PM

More business like change in attitude of staff and general I don't really care - "It's a job." No genuine atmosphere of caring or concern, main concern seems to be the BOTTOM LINE.

December 14, 2019 4:52 AM

Provider is very personable and easy to interact with. I never feel rushed or that any of my concerns are not fully considered. Provider is very knowledgeable, but not overly clinical.

December 14, 2019 4:52 AM

Always a very pleasant and beneficial experience.

December 9, 2019 9:12 PM
