July 30, 2020 11:52 AM

Very patient.

July 28, 2020 7:45 AM

Dr Brandis is an excellent caring physician.

July 22, 2020 11:32 AM

Dr. Brandies is a doctor who at least TRIES. However - she MUST take time to listen to her patients! It's not all about the rules or text books. The time she spends with me is too short - my input I feel - is important too!

July 21, 2020 6:56 AM

In my opinion Dr. Brandies is a great doctor. I believe that she cares about me and my health. And she always responds to my questions when I use the portal in a very short period time. I'm impressed in every aspect of her caring tactics.

July 21, 2020 5:51 AM

very good

July 20, 2020 6:35 PM

Dr. Brandies is a very informed doctor. She is caring and compassionate as well. She spends her time explaining and making sure you have an understanding before you leave.

July 14, 2020 10:10 PM

Detailed oriented, precise, attentive,professional and knowledgeable.

July 14, 2020 10:10 PM

Look forward to check up and discussions so informative and encouraging.

July 14, 2020 1:07 PM

Experience with Dr Brandies is always pleasant and professional.

July 14, 2020 1:07 PM

Dr Brandies always makes me feel comfortable and she is extremely good at making sure I clearly understand my health conditions and things I can do to continue to maintain a healthy life style.

July 14, 2020 11:03 AM

I always look forward to seeing Dr. Brandies. She is the best primary care physician I have had in a long time. I would not want to part with her for any reason. I love her so much that I have recommended her to my family and friends. As a matter of fact, Dr. Brandies was my mothers primary care physician for a period of time before she passed away.

July 14, 2020 11:03 AM

All of my experiences with Dr. Brandies have been wonderful. I can't say a bad thing about Dr. Brandies.

July 13, 2020 6:25 PM

always cheerful and encouraging, and nonjudgmental

July 13, 2020 8:09 AM

Provider's staff did not put my lab tests order into computer correctly so I waited over an hour to get my blood drawn. Also, I am very dissatisfied with Advocate - can only see dr. for routine exams and it take 6-12 weeks for appt. If have illness have to use urgent care.

July 11, 2020 11:50 AM

very good experience

July 2, 2020 12:00 AM

Good exp.

April 7, 2020 10:01 PM

Dr. Brandies is a very competent physician. she explains things well. She listens to what you have to say. She reads my portal and responds if I have questions! Dr. Brandies is an asset to Advocate Medical Group!

April 1, 2020 8:18 AM

She answered all my questions. She phoned me with my test results.

March 31, 2020 11:09 AM

this was a phone interview due to c-19 virus. good interview by phone.

March 31, 2020 11:09 AM

Dr. Brandies is so caring and listens to your questions and concerns and is very patient.

March 26, 2020 6:59 AM

I truly appreciate the level of professionalism I have experienced with Dr. J. Brandies.

March 26, 2020 6:59 AM

I am grateful in my selection of Advocate, I experienced some of the best assisted in my life.

March 24, 2020 9:11 AM

I like Dr. Brandies, she listens to me and helps with suggestions for better. She takes a lot of time with me as I am disable.

March 21, 2020 7:30 AM

Great Doctor

March 21, 2020 7:30 AM

Her services met my expectations and she is diligent.

March 20, 2020 5:02 AM

Dr. Brandies is the best doctor I have had since I've been with Advocate.

March 18, 2020 9:54 AM

I saw Dr. Brandies because I was having stomach pain. I emailed her about my issues, she responded same day, and I was even able to get an appointment for the same day. She instructed me on what to do, prescribed medication, and I am now feeling better after having this issue for over 5 weeks.

March 18, 2020 9:54 AM

I always have a great experience with Dr. Brandies. I have had other providers, but she is far more the best for me. I trust her with my life, and my health.

March 17, 2020 9:51 PM

dr Brandies is very smart but does not really listen. She offers a lot of generic advice and platitudes but does little to customize care to meet needs. She is kind and pleasant but does not seem to really care. I understand that patients need to participate in their own care, but I usually leave feeling not cared for at all.

March 17, 2020 9:51 PM

check in clerk very professional and efficient intake tech very professional and a good listener.

March 17, 2020 11:28 AM

I have a great provider she goes over everything with me and make sure that I am doing good. She is very easy to talk to, she break down and explain anything I need or don't understand. I have no problems with her.

March 10, 2020 8:27 PM

Very good experience. Very thorough and thoughtful. Extremely pleased with Dr. Brandies. Excellent care..

March 10, 2020 7:27 PM

love Dr. Brandies, wait time was horrible this time around but she apologized. There were a lot of activity that day.

March 10, 2020 7:56 AM

It's been a very long time since I found a Primary Care Physician that shows me that they truly care for their patient. Dr. Brandies listens, and is very personable, and encouraging. Her knowledge and advice for my overall health was a comfort. She is also my husband's doctor and we love how she cares for us. We hope to have her for years to come as our doctor.

March 9, 2020 3:30 PM

Dr. Brandies is an exceptional physician who shows concern about her patients health care needs.

March 5, 2020 7:14 AM

My visit was pleasant, I'm always comfortable with my provider.

March 5, 2020 7:14 AM

My experience is always good with my provider, she is very easy to talk to. She takes her time with her patients.

March 3, 2020 8:51 AM

will call you at home to let you know about your lab tests the results of the tests and let you know what you need to do

March 2, 2020 4:05 PM

very good. Got a lot of information.

March 2, 2020 2:24 PM

I feel the staff has gotten away from customer care and patient first standards. everyone is a different person do not treat everyone as the same address each individually leave personal stuff at door when you enter work. be professional at all times and listen to the person. this staff lately doesn't not meet any standards. talking about other employees in front of patients I love my doctor but the stuff is running me away.

February 29, 2020 2:09 PM

Dr. Brandies is an excellent physician.

February 24, 2020 6:59 PM

February 15, 2020 11:49 AM

I like my primary physician.

February 15, 2020 11:49 AM

I don't like the facility it is not very clean and it's mostly crowded. The building needs to be rehabbed and bright lights it's very dull in there. I like my doctor but I do not like the building it is poorly lit is it's depressing.

February 11, 2020 8:07 AM

During this visit my provider asked about my reactions with my medication, my appointments with my other specialist, which means that she's on top of my care. The visit was great.

February 11, 2020 12:01 AM

Dr. Brandies is an awesome doctor. The very best!

February 4, 2020 2:11 PM

good experienece

February 4, 2020 2:33 AM

Only 1 older lady at the front was very nice...other 2 seemed kinda rude. Esp the younger girl wearing the face mask. Thought front line workers were already inoculated for this very reason of being in contact with the public??

February 3, 2020 5:39 PM

love my Dr. waited less than 1 minute in the lobby which is good because I didn't want to catch anything from anyone waiting who was sick. waited about 2 minutes at the most for my bloodwork which is amazing!

February 3, 2020 4:22 PM

Excellent provider! Very knowledgeable about nutrition. Great advice and tips for healthier lifestyle. Explains concepts very well
