It should be easier to call the doctor's office. When I've called, it's been answered by an operator at another site who did not have useful information.

May 19, 2020 8:53 AM

I recommend the clinic because they give very good service.

May 19, 2020 8:53 AM

They give very good service in this clinic in Advocate Medical Group I am very grateful to the doctor to everyone thanks.

May 18, 2020 1:38 PM

My concerns were heard and my doctor and I were able to plan a course of action for my condition.

March 28, 2020 12:03 AM

Dr. Moaddab is smart, professional and kind.

March 27, 2020 12:00 AM

Dr. was very pleasant.

March 18, 2020 12:15 PM

A good experience.

March 18, 2020 12:15 PM

The provider is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

March 13, 2020 8:24 AM

Good experience (professional).

March 13, 2020 8:24 AM

Excellent.

February 22, 2020 6:55 AM

I arrived 15 minutes early as instructed but there was only one person available to check people in and make follow up appointments. There was a line so this process took a long time. My doctor visit was good.

February 19, 2020 7:45 AM

Excellent.

February 18, 2020 1:28 PM

Very good.

February 18, 2020 1:28 PM

I fell very good about the visit because they took good care of me.

February 14, 2020 12:54 PM

Very pleasant & went over my needs.

February 3, 2020 1:29 PM

Dr. Moaddab has always been great about listening to my concerns.

February 3, 2020 1:29 PM

It was just a routine sinus infection visit. I was tested for strep very efficiently (much better than having to wait for a culture!), prescribed antibiotics and a nasal spray for immediate relief.

January 13, 2020 8:24 PM

Great experience

January 13, 2020 8:24 PM

It was great. I came in with a very sore thought and wheezing. The doctor prescribed prednisone and a z-pack. I took the medicine and now I'm better.

January 13, 2020 3:03 PM

Provider was super friendly!

December 29, 2019 11:07 PM

very good

December 1, 2019 3:53 PM

Everytime I saw her and dealt with other members of the staff I felt cared for. This is always a good experience.

December 1, 2019 3:53 PM

Dr. Moaddab is very attentive, simple in her approach and very present during the appointment. She does not seem to be in a rush and is a good listener. She I believe is an asset to the entire medical staff.

November 30, 2019 9:10 AM

very good

November 23, 2019 2:56 PM

I always have an informational experience with my provider. This is one of the reasons I like Advocate.

November 23, 2019 2:56 PM

I love my provider. My provider was on the south side but moved to the north side far from my home, however I love her so much I travel far to the north side. I feel at ease to ask her anything (I write down my questions) and she answers every one of them. I truly trust her and follow her directions as best I can. I love my provider Dr Goldbard Moodah. If she moved her practice to the moon I would follow her (if I could get transportation) :)

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

I would recommend my provider to someone else. In fact, I did.

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

I changed providers in order to get this provider. I feel she is more empathetic and she does not judge me.

November 9, 2019 12:30 AM

I just need an appointment the same day. I got problem with my ear. the provider was so professional with a great smile and good attitude. thank you

November 9, 2019 12:30 AM

thank you very much for you time and help. you are amazing

October 13, 2019 7:00 PM

she listens and cares! I truly appreciate her understanding.

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Moaddab is great caring very helpful.

July 31, 2019 7:00 PM

My regular doctor was on a leave so I seen Dr. Moaddab for the 1st time. She treated me like a regular patient. Listening to all concerns & explaining things nicely.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

She was wonderful and very thorough.

July 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent doctor. Diagnosed the health issue right away.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

The clinic looks clean and neat and very organized. The only thing that I have a concern is that I got there before the appt. time and I waited for a long time.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

She needs to attend pain management training. She only focused on the opioids and the negativity surrounding them. Did NOT care about why they are taken, nor empathized w/chronic pain and its effects.

June 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Moaddab is a very nice,kind, considerate individual who takes time to listen to your concerns.

June 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Pushed personal opinions on me...

June 17, 2019 7:00 PM

I LOVE HER SHE REALLY TOOK HER TIME AND EXPLAINED EVERYTHING TO ME AND SHE ALSO LISTENED TO EVERYTHING THAT I HAD TO SAY !!! I'M SORRY BUT I CAN'T PRONOUNCE HER NAME BUT SHE IS GOING TO BE MY PCP , BECAUSE DR. X IS NO LONGER THERE...

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

She was more concerned with me taking tramadol and Ativan but never asked or listened to why I was taking the drugs. She took it on herself to reduce my dosage. I am in so much pain and so anxious about it I'm having difficulty moving around and completing normal tasks. She treated me like I was a street drug addict. She contradicted every explanation I gave for why I was on these. She just would not listen to me and this was my first visit due to change of insurance.

May 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Moaddab is an EXCELLENT primary care doctor.

May 6, 2019 7:00 PM

it was a good visit for me

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

very helpful and understanding about my health. listened to all of my questions and concerns.

April 19, 2019 7:00 PM

well i just switched doctors, and it was my first time with this doctor. But i really liked the way she is.

April 8, 2019 7:00 PM

Generally a good experience.

March 17, 2019 7:00 PM

i loved her she was great. hope to keep working with the doctor

March 10, 2019 7:00 PM

she was kind

February 24, 2019 6:00 PM

They thought I was there for a routine check up when I was there to talk about specific issues I was having. I specifically asked to renew a birth control prescription and this doctor was unable to do so (but only told me this once i was in the room), so I was told I would have to see another doctor for that. I started discussing one issue I was having with the doctor and she told me to look online for more info about the issue, when she knew I had already done so before coming in. Literally told me to go online to get info, and I had to tell her that I wanted to discuss TREATMENT, not google more info. After discussing treatment, she was shooing me out the door without letting me tell her about the other issues I came in for. And there again, without discussing what treatment she could offer, she first discussed me going to a specialist. But after talking, she figured out she could offer some treatment.

February 24, 2019 6:00 PM

I had a very positive experience with Dr. Moaddab. I would definitely recommend her to family/friends.

February 22, 2019 6:00 PM

She was very caring and spent an ample amount of time with me. She tried to figure out the best course of treatment for what I was experiencing.

February 18, 2019 6:00 PM

the doctor is always kind and energetic she is always great at answering any questions and concerns. her assistant is fantastic at following up through phone calls.

February 5, 2019 6:00 PM

She was very professional as well as detailed.

February 4, 2019 6:00 PM

The receptionist did not acknowledge me when I approached the window. Only when I began looking towards the other window did she ask how she could help me. The staff behind the desk was having loud personal conversations heard throughout the waiting area, and the receptionist participated as she checked me in. completely unprofessional. I had to ask the receptionist to repeat herself because the others behind the desk were laughing/talking so loudly. I will be seeking another provider after my most recent experience. I feel I can receive better care with more professional staff elsewhere. I also had a negative experience getting the ordered blood work done, as well as with previous visits to immediate care at the same facility.

February 1, 2019 6:00 PM

very helpful and thorough

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Excellent physician. Very knowledgeable and empathic to my needs. Spent time listening.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

doctor was recommended by my sister who was significantly impresses with her after her initial immediate care visit to return for ongoing care. I am equally impressed with Dr. Moaddab and will continue to see her as my PCP. I have experience of over 20 years in a hospital setting as a licensed clinical social worker. I wish Dr. Miaddab could be cloned. She is great and would serve any hospital extremely well. I am so happy with my sister's recommendation.

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

My experience was good.

November 25, 2018 6:00 PM

had a paper faxed to be filled out for my insurance and when they called me to let me know my lab came back normal they said they couldn't find my paper. This office is not close for me they had me drive all the way back up there to drop it off again didnt make it till 3 or 4 they told me the Dr was gone already they left it on her desk to be filled out. so I was very angry I still didnt get my form filled out. I don't even know if my form was even filled out still. As long as I've been coming here seeing my regular Dr I have never had this issue before. My forms have never been lost and I have never had to drive all the way back there to take another form to them because they misplaced the one they got when I was there.

November 25, 2018 6:00 PM

she listens really well I feel very connected with her

November 21, 2018 6:00 PM

attentive and not dismissive of symptoms. takes the time to explain possibilities and what to expect very clearly

November 5, 2018 6:00 PM

I feel that Dr. Moaddab/Golbarg is very caring and helpful with my health situations.

October 28, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Moaddab & her staff are awesome. They listen & respond to my health concerns. I would highly recommend then to other patients.

October 27, 2018 7:00 PM

I felt comfortable with the provider and she listened to my concerns. She did not have my medical records and know my medical HX, b/c this was our initial appointment together.

September 24, 2018 7:00 PM

I think Dr. Moaddab is a very good pcp. As always, she paid attention, listened to concerns, offered good advice, and set up some needed follow-up tests (all of which so far have shown that I am fine).

September 17, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. G. Moaddab MD is awesome.

September 13, 2018 7:00 PM

(Very friendly.) Very friendly & & understand the problems of my health, very happy with the medical services.

August 26, 2018 7:00 PM

the communication with the med techs needs to improve. I gave blood for some tests and had to come back to give more blood because they did not read the request properly and did not take enough blood

August 19, 2018 7:00 PM

Very good Medical Assistants and Dr is Moddab is an Excellent Dr

July 30, 2018 7:00 PM

went to see her because needed refill for my lyrica. she had no idea I was even taking it. I gave her a sheet with all my medication on first visit when filled out new patient form. she had hardly any of my medication on her computer file. when I go see her no one ever asks me about my medicine . what I take , anything new or stopped. nothing!!! I was very upset she has no clue to my medicines which most are prescription ones. she also told me a procedure I am going to have with pain management is just a "myth " and will not work!!! she had not even researched it . I will not go back to her or advocate. it is not a safe place. not when they don't even know your medication. also been having high BP . she says it's not that bad. it is 150/ 105. I will be going to Northwestern health care.

June 1, 2018 7:00 PM

She was helpful and took time to listen

May 22, 2018 7:00 PM

She's the best doctor I had in years. She's really listening to what I telling about my health. We really had a good conversation and that really helped me. Some doctors especially the old ones are kind of lazy to hear what you say and they make their judgment right away. A young doctor like her whose very energetic and enthusiastic about her patient can add years to the life of patients.

May 13, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Moadab is wonderful!

May 2, 2018 7:00 PM

Great experience and will continue to see her. She showed compassion and care as well as answered all my concerns.

April 23, 2018 7:00 PM

Very pleasant and thorough, I am very happy that I chose this provider as my primary.

April 22, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Moaddab is very easy to talk to. She doesn't rush the meeting/examination and treats me as a person and not a number. She makes the experience less stressful and allows me to participate in it. Thank you for this opportunity!!!

April 19, 2018 7:00 PM

This doctor is behaving like a great professional and what she has studied knows how to do it as she should with the patients, is very good person. As a professional OK.

April 3, 2018 7:00 PM

The dr. was attentive to my reasons for my visit though she was apprehensive confirming a diagnosis for my severe cough she was on the fence of whether it be pneumonia-bronchitis or upper respiratory infection she did not prescribe any anti-biotics but did prescribe steroids for me which only worked for a couple of days and then I made another appt. to see her for the same condition.

March 30, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Moaddab was available to see me about a running related injury. She examined me and referred me to a Sports Medicine professional right away. In addition, she followed up on previous visits and our concerns discussed there.

March 29, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Moaddab is the best!

March 17, 2018 7:00 PM

she seemed to dismiss all the previous medical advice I was given and she never called about my blood work results so I'm at an impasse

March 1, 2018 6:00 PM

The provider would not provide refills for my medication because I quote, "It would look really bad for us if you killed yourself." Two days before Xmas a nurse called to tell me I needed an urgent HIV test due to low white blood oils. She then said happy holidays and hung up.

February 25, 2018 6:00 PM

I needed a follow up visit but was told I couldn't come in again for flu symptoms/complicated due to insurance even though insurance was confirmed with receptionist at time of visit. In my time of need, regardless of being a patient of AMG well over 7 years, I was denied medical attention because of insurance issues. Its seems to me that time again, the business aspect is more dominant for Advocate than patient's health & wellbeing

February 21, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Golbarg cares very professional, lestened all my concerns and anscers all my questions, also explained to me very clear the medical reasons of my questions.

February 16, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr was very professional, her assistant, however, I asked her to fax a paper to my job for being absent to work and she refused, she said I have to do it.

February 16, 2018 6:00 PM

loved my interaction with this doctor, informative and gave options and next steps if necessary- a health care plan to address my condition. yes!

February 16, 2018 6:00 PM

she was nice. very easy to talk to. I'm looking for a new pcp since mine retired. it was my first visit with her.

February 12, 2018 6:00 PM

The doc I saw was really thorough, and kind and sympathetic to my health issue, and made sure I knew how to follow up if any issues arose from the medication she was prescribing.

January 24, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Moaddab has a very light and friendly approach. She treats both the condition and the person, she listens and responds with genuine feedback. She is an asset to your institution.

January 16, 2018 6:00 PM

She is so helpful & accommodating & listen to your health problems.

December 20, 2017 6:00 PM

doctor listen with concern for my health

November 12, 2017 6:00 PM

she was wonderful. i would see her again for sure

November 5, 2017 6:00 PM

Dr. Moaddab is amazing and I feel I'm in good hands with her.
