Provider care was satisfactory. The issue I have is when I call the office for any reason, the person on the other end of the line is often rude.

July 27, 2020 2:06 PM

my appointment was at 11:00am and the provider did not show up until 11:45. he did not apologize, and spent less than 10 minutes with me.

July 27, 2020 2:06 PM

my appointment felt rushed. I was a first time visit with this doctor and he didn't seem to care.

July 22, 2020 10:02 AM

I started seeing Dr Mustafa a year or so ago. I originally went in for help with my anxiety and depression. He and his nurses were so kind and understanding. I think I have this under control for now at least. So this time I went for a regular checkup. We discussed things to do to help improve my health - mind and body.

July 22, 2020 10:02 AM

I would recommend Dr Mustafa and his office to anyone.

July 21, 2020 12:13 PM

Dr. Mustafa is always calm and caring. He asks lot of questions and listens to the answers.

July 21, 2020 5:12 AM

very good experience!

July 21, 2020 5:12 AM

I feel very comfortable during my visits.

July 20, 2020 2:03 PM

Dr. Mustafa was very professional, polite, and made me feel completely comfortable as well as X who went over the information part of my visit they make a great team together. the ladies at the front desk was the first people I came in contact( it all starts there), professional and kind. a very good experience.

July 20, 2020 1:37 PM

Everything went well.

July 18, 2020 4:45 PM

Dr Mustafa is a very caring and great primary care doctor. He is very concerned with my well- being and I appreciate him very much.

July 13, 2020 6:44 PM

Dr. Mustafa always makes me feel relaxed and willing to listen to any questions I have. I never feel rushed.

July 13, 2020 2:36 PM

Dr. Mustafa and the staff in Lake Zurich is fantastic. Very courteous, attentive, and great healthcare providers

July 8, 2020 9:39 AM

yearly physical, Doctor Mustafa covers everything, lets me know and explains what is going on, and asks questions concerning my health.

July 8, 2020 9:39 AM

Good experience!

July 7, 2020 10:57 PM

he listened, very calm, he made me very comfortable.

July 7, 2020 10:57 PM

I felt very comfortable with him and feel he really cares about my health.

July 6, 2020 1:49 PM

I am new to this practice and Dr. Mustafa was very thorough with my history, specialists I see and prescription drugs I take. I felt he took plenty of time with me.

July 5, 2020 10:11 PM

Excellent, thank you!

July 5, 2020 10:11 PM

Everything was very professional and good, thank you!

July 4, 2020 12:34 PM

July 4, 2020 7:36 AM

Good listener.

June 28, 2020 1:02 PM

I like Dr Mustafa good listener

June 27, 2020 1:27 PM

I felt Dr. Mustafa could have asked more questions about how I was feeling (and more specifics) since it was my annual physical. I don't think the doctors are given enough time with their patients to do a thorough job on caregiving. Dr. Mustafa is knowledgeable and I do appreciate his guidance.

June 27, 2020 6:44 AM

It was my yearly check up and it went well.

June 27, 2020 6:44 AM

It was a good experience. This provider told me what I need to do and follow up with him to make sure everything is okay

June 24, 2020 1:41 PM

It has been a very good experience since I first visit with Dr. Mustafa on 5/18/20.

June 24, 2020 1:41 PM

All test results have been on the portal the next day which is very impressive. Advocate Lake Zurich has been doing an outstanding job. (Also the current COVID-19 handling.)

June 19, 2020 12:00 AM

Very helpful, I know that if I have questions or concerns in the future I can go to Dr. Mustafa for any help or guidance.

June 19, 2020 12:00 AM

Everyone seemed very willing to help and alleviate my concerns.

June 15, 2020 10:18 AM

Very safe during Covid19

June 15, 2020 10:18 AM

Great care

May 22, 2020 12:00 AM

Excellent attentive care. Attn. to extra precautions due to COVID risks @ this time. Very careful questions & review of history.

May 22, 2020 12:00 AM

I had a very positive experience w/Dr. Mustafa and would be happy to see him again. Grateful that I was seen quickly -

May 4, 2020 3:34 PM

Dr Mustafa has always been very professional.

May 4, 2020 3:34 PM

I would recommend Dr Mustafa to anybody. Great Dr.

April 28, 2020 11:23 AM

When I call to schedule a visit I call when I have time to talk. Unfortunately, I have to leave a message and wait for someone to call back & I may not be available to talk. It would be nice to speak with someone on the first call. In addition two calls were never returned at all!

April 27, 2020 1:52 PM

Always good to talk with Dr Mustaf

April 27, 2020 1:52 PM

I was pleased to obtain an appointment in a timely manner

March 30, 2020 2:44 PM

Pleased with my Tele visit. Had to 'see' doctor this way because of COVID-19

March 30, 2020 2:44 PM

I think the visit could have been just a little bit better if we had used a FaceTime type of service.

March 30, 2020 1:57 PM

Good

March 30, 2020 1:57 PM

good

March 30, 2020 1:45 PM

My long-time PCP retired last month. This was my first visit with this particular doctor. After decades with my previous PCP, I was prepared to not feel particularly comfortable with a new doctor. I couldn't have been more wrong. Dr. Mustafa was professional, personable, instantly put me at ease. I immediately had a feeling of confidence in him. I am very pleased that I selected Dr. Mustafa as my new PCP.

March 30, 2020 1:45 PM

Despite the current difficult time with the Covid virus, because I was a new patient, Dr. Mustafa saw me in person for a follow-up visit regarding my ongoing hypertension. I was well aware of how busy he must be, but he did not make me feel rushed. He answered my questions, as well as asking me many questions regarding my health. United Healthcare allows me to choose from hundreds of doctors from many different group practices. I thought for sure that I would have to "shop around" before I found one to replace my long-time PCP. However, after just one visit, I left his office feeling confident that I made the correct choice in choosing Dr. Mustafa as my new PCP.

March 23, 2020 8:32 PM

Dr.Mustafa is a very caring and compassionate doctor. He always listens to my concerns and discusses any treatment options with me. He has helped me lower my A1C from 14.6 to 5.3. and is always prepared to answer all my questions in person or via portal webmail.

March 23, 2020 8:32 PM

Dr. Mustafa suggested I invite my husband to a follow up appointment so he could explain my condition to my husband to ensure he fully understands my healthcare needs.

March 23, 2020 8:11 PM

Very good. Dr. Mustafa always listens to any questions I have and answers them.

March 22, 2020 12:41 PM

My visit was for annual physical examination. Dr. Mustafa was professional, cordial, and conveyed both caring for my well being and engaged in discussion about my health and wealth being, including providing useful information on Covid19. I appreciate his care and guidance. His staff were also cordial and polite. Thank you!

March 21, 2020 3:05 PM

Doctor Mustafa has always been thorough, and a good diagnostician. I feel very comfortable with him as my doctor.

March 16, 2020 8:17 AM

Always are aware of my personal needs as required

March 14, 2020 9:24 PM

My wife and I are highly impressed with Dr. Mustafa. He is smart doctor. I come from a doctor family. My sister has been practicing since 1974. I always brag to her about my doctor. Take care of this young man.

March 14, 2020 9:24 PM

Only wait was little long but it seems he got tied up on phone, which i fully understood under current circumstances.

March 13, 2020 12:00 AM

He listens very carefully and explains things in great detail.

March 10, 2020 5:12 PM

Results were very good so would cal it a good experience

March 10, 2020 12:05 AM

I liked this Doctor more than the one I usually see and might make a change to him instead!

I was having some uncomfortable pain in my foot. As he was listening what I was explaining about the discomfort, he asked questions, examined the foot and gave instructions how to help relieve the discomfort.

March 7, 2020 4:00 AM

I am very pleased with Dr. Mustafa.

March 3, 2020 7:56 AM

The receptionist were extremely helpful. I had an issue with insurance and they were so kind and calm with me and my 3 year old daughter. It had been a rough day and they made it so much better.

February 24, 2020 6:34 AM

Dr. Mustafa and his team were quite pleasant to see. The listened to my questions and provided answers and suggestions. The seemed to know about my history, as this was my second visit to Dr. Mustafa after my previous primary care physician retired.

February 24, 2020 6:34 AM

It was a good experience.

February 7, 2020 11:37 PM

I felt good during this visit. This provider came very recommended.

January 27, 2020 11:22 PM

Dr Mustafa took the time to really understand the issues I am facing and helped prescribe an appropriate medicine for the condition.

January 27, 2020 1:43 PM

Love Dr. Mustafa and X. They always make you feel welcomed and safe. Incredibly engaging with my daughter and she enjoys visiting the doctor despite the circumstances.

January 27, 2020 1:43 PM

Love this medical practice and group. X at the front desk is always super helpful and remembers us either when we show up or even over phone calls. You can't beat that kind of personal connection. Same goes for X and Dr. Mustafa who we have seen for almost 5years now.

January 21, 2020 7:34 AM

I feel Dr spends more time documenting visit than caring for me. I feel like I'm rushed through.

January 20, 2020 7:21 PM

Dr. Mustafa has provided me with excellent Medical care for many years. His entire office has been helpful. I am certainly not a simple case, yet he seems truly up to date with other specialists I have seen and test results. I strive to keep all my specialist within Advocate so that he has all info from the in real time.

January 20, 2020 7:21 PM

X is always so very thorough and compassionate. The entire staff has always been super responsive to me. Dr. Mustafa has taken the time to go over my complicated health conditions every visit. He is a great asset to me and I can credit him with helping to keep me alive.

January 20, 2020 4:32 PM

I am new with this provider and really like him. last dr was slow and only concerned that I smoked not all the healthy avenues I take in my life. I am well aware of what smoking does.

January 20, 2020 4:32 PM

I went in for hearing loss and was surprised at the issue and grateful that it was an easy solution

January 20, 2020 1:38 PM

January 20, 2020 1:38 PM

entire office was friendly

January 15, 2020 7:52 PM

My kids and I love Dr Mustafa! We are all very comfortable with him and trust that he has our best health interests in mind. I have recommended Dr Mustafa to my coworker who is a current patient of the practice.

January 2, 2020 4:08 PM

This provider has been one of the best I've seen in many years.

January 2, 2020 4:08 PM

He asks questions and listens. great empathy for patients.

December 30, 2019 8:28 AM

Great conversation about health concerns. Offered suggestions, gave an exercise routine to follow to alleviate pain.
