Good bedside manner.

July 24, 2020 11:25 AM

Provider is good, just transport scheduling.

July 13, 2020 2:53 PM

She spent a lot of time on the computer. She was very thorough with cleaning and disinfecting.

July 13, 2020 2:53 PM

I wish she would have explained that after a cortisone injection, it would feel worse for several days before feeling better.

June 29, 2020 1:38 PM

She's been an amazing provider! She really helped me get started back on my meds. I have medication anxiety but she kindly emphasized the importance of taking the meds and my joints have been feeling better since.

June 29, 2020 1:38 PM

It's been a great experience and I'm really glad that I have her as my provider.

June 3, 2020 10:32 AM

I found Eleana very pleasant and professional.

June 3, 2020 10:32 AM


May 24, 2020 10:14 AM

She is a very caring and patient doctor. She is friendly and thorough in my medical histery and we revisit previous issues from the last visit to see where they are. I am very confident in her ability to assess my health issues.

May 24, 2020 10:14 AM

I have only good things to say about her, no complaints.

May 14, 2020 8:16 AM

I have seen Dr. Gogoneata for many years. She is very professional and helpful. During this crisis, she was very supportive and made sure I was okay!

May 14, 2020 8:16 AM

Love her!

May 2, 2020 9:43 AM

I like this provider's care very much. I have been her patient for many years. However, in my last visit there was a problem with the computer system and she couldn't open my information online which took us over an hour to try fixing the problem without success. Fortunately, she is aware of my health condition and was able to provide a good visit even though she couldn't access my information.

March 27, 2020 12:00 AM

Good experience.

March 14, 2020 4:48 PM

horrible and a complete waste of my time and energy, and she was 30 minutes late for our appointment.

March 14, 2020 4:48 PM

she kept me waiting and rushed me out with minimal conversation

March 3, 2020 8:12 AM

Great doctor... Fantastic.

February 27, 2020 8:14 AM

When I can, I can NEVER get a person or even a call back! I have to leave a message at a call center and the NO ONE CALLS ME CALL!!! NO ONE has EVER called me with lab results.

February 27, 2020 8:14 AM

Dr. Gogoneata is great, but not being able to call with questions or get answers is awful.

February 18, 2020 7:30 PM

it was ok gave a treatment plan with pills and sent to get blood work. haven't heard from doctor or anyone else of results.

February 15, 2020 5:05 PM

I have seen her for a few years now. She has gotten better with time, especially after I told her I did not like to be rush or ignore

January 28, 2020 1:30 PM

Elena Gogoneata is the best. She has taken the time to review my blood work and recommended that I see a pulmonary specialist and cardiologist at the pulmonary clinic at Christ Hospital. I am very thankful X, referred me to Elena Gogoneata, as she has helped me a great deal.

January 28, 2020 1:30 PM

Advocate is very fortunate to have such a great doctor on their staff.

January 27, 2020 10:20 PM

She is usually very kind. I have never had an unpleasant experience with her.

January 14, 2020 9:53 AM

Good service thank you.

January 14, 2020 9:53 AM


January 13, 2020 8:38 PM


January 8, 2020 6:21 AM

Her focus was constantly in the computer. Once in a while she made eye contact.

December 30, 2019 1:27 PM

Very good.

December 30, 2019 1:27 PM

Made suggestions regarding supplements I take and others that would be helpful for my health

December 30, 2019 6:24 AM

Good experience is good doctor.

December 16, 2019 3:50 PM

Dr Gogoneata is excellent and listens to me. she is concerned and one if the best doctors i have ever had. my condition is under control and I owe it all to Dr Gogoneata. thank you.

December 16, 2019 2:33 PM

Had to wait an hour after appointment time to see doctor. No explanation or apology provided.

December 7, 2019 3:53 PM


November 22, 2019 8:36 AM

Great... check-up... moving forward with the infusions of Remicade at Condell. Everything is positive at this time.

November 22, 2019 8:36 AM

Dr. Gogoneata doing an exceptional job!!

November 1, 2019 7:00 PM

she takes plenty of time to explain my condition and the treatment required

October 25, 2019 7:00 PM

It was an awesome experience. She answered all my questions.

October 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Gogoneata is an excellent care giver. would highly recommend her to others.

October 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Love Dr. Gogoneata, she's great

October 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Was able to make an asap appointment and she ordered bloodwork to finally get an answer to what was going on. She actually called me herself to give me the results! Amazing doctor and excellent care!

September 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent attention from the dr. and nurses.

September 16, 2019 7:00 PM

Elena Gogoneata is and excellent doctor she listen to my concerns and try to help me out that is why I stay with her.

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Provider reviewed previous labs drawn. Answered my inquiries clearly.

August 6, 2019 7:00 PM

It went well we are still trying to determine what is going wrong.

July 30, 2019 7:00 PM

did not seam to care did not have results from test done and i didn't even know she was done just before aloes out oof room

July 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Didn't feel that I was listened to about my concerns/complaints of discomfort & medication (not wanting to get on prescription).

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

it was smooth visit

July 8, 2019 7:00 PM

The doctor seemed distant and cold. She focused more on answering computer questions than talk about the issue.

June 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Friendly doctor and I didn't have to wait long in the exam room

June 10, 2019 7:00 PM

she is very knowledgeable, but she is kind of quiet not telling much about results or improvements, unless you ask

June 7, 2019 7:00 PM

A very long time sitting and waiting in the examing room. After the nurse took vitals it was almost 30 minutes before the doctor came in. Way past the appointment time. No one ever checked back. Same thing after blood was taken. Which was another long wait. No one around to confer or direct. Just shoved into a room and a curtain drawn.

May 20, 2019 7:00 PM

she's is good

May 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Was informative and helpful.
